“Peace, I left for peace granny. All that money came with a price. How many times do I have to tell you that money isn’t everything to me? That’s how you live your life, but I don’t have to live mine like that. I’m going to school, so I can make my own money, I never wanted to depend on a man. Why is that frowned upon?” She honestly wanted to know why it was so wrong of her to want more out of life and expect more of a man than some mediocre dick, Nita was unbelievable sometimes. Money wasn’t important to Cheyanne. Money didn’t give anyone the right to mistreat people. Money didn’t make you real. Money didn’t make you a grown up. Money didn’t mean you had a good heart. Everyone acted like her husband’s money mad him some saint or some major catch. He was a piece of shit and she’d live on the streets before she ever went back to that damn prison of a house.
“Everything cost baby, nothing in this life is for free. That’s the truth and you know it. A man can’t do no more than you can do. Money rule this world. NO MONEY NO HONEY” Nita reminded Chey. Chey shook her head. She was seriously confused as to why everyone had an opinion on her reasons for leaving. It was too late to look back now, not that she wanted to anyway. But she was tired of repeating herself and overthinking. Nita wouldn’t be satisfied until she was 6 foot under at the hands of Lavelle. She didn’t understand that this was a reality. Lavelle could have killed her several times, but God kept her.
