THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED EIGHTH INSTALLMENT IS FINALLY HERE!!!

“So,” I began. “Any thought on what you wanna do?” I asked, fingering his dreads. They’d grown to the middle of his back, and they reminded me of how he used to look back when we first met. I swear, my man was finer than frog hair split three ways. Jude was absolutely right about what he said earlier. I was crazy about him, despite everything we’d been through. Our trials and tribulations were what, ultimately, made us stronger.
Jude pulled me closer and massaged my shoulder with his thumb. “My homeboy say he fuckin’ with the scams now. He claims it’s money in that shit too…”
“So…you gon’ start fuckin’ with it?” I asked him.
Jude paused, as he stared up at the ceiling in deliberation. “I don’t know…what’chu think?” he asked. He always consulted with me before making any hasty decisions. Especially decisions that could land us both in a world of trouble. Luckily for him, trouble was my middle name.
