Chapter 17- A Day For Mommy
Baby A'King was growing so fast and his 1st birthday was vastly approaching. Zanovia had taken being a mother so seriously, that she had dedicated her every moment to baby to A'King! She'd stopped doing her makeup, kept her hair in simple hairstyles and didn't go out much anymore. Zadduis didn't mind, though. It was even sexier to him that his wife was REAL woman who put her kids first; unlike the thirsty women he saw walking up and down the block near the trap house everyday. He loved Zanovia regardless of what she looked like and this morning, he wanted to show her how much.
Even though he had to pull an over-nighter at the trap house today, he ordered one of his boys to drop off a letter. The letter was filled with money and a small note that read "You've been working so hard raising our son, taking care of the house and satisfying me. I'm so glad I married you. Here's some cash... Go spend it. Get your hair and nails done. Go buy an outfit. And, don't worry. I hired a new nanny, she should be there any minute. I have already called your mom over to watch A'King. Meeka will be waiting for you at the mall! Love you, see you tomorrow. --Zadduis" The note made Zanovia smile. Zadduis could be so romantic sometime.
Just like clockwork, the doorbell rung and the new Nanny arrived. Zanovia was a little apprehensive about having anyone watching A'King, but she knew that if Zadduis was willing to go the extra mile today, she should let him. After showing the Nanny around and making sure baby A'King was cozy with his new Nanny, Zanovia ran upstairs, got ready and was off for her big day!
After meeting up with Meeka at the mall, they shopped 'til they dropped and set off for the Pink Fenty Nail & Hair Salon where the two of them got pampered like the queens that they were
"Phew!" Zanovia said taking a deep breath. "It feels so good to be able to just sit here, and relax."
"I know girl, it's almost been a year since we've done this!" Meeka agreed. "I'm so happy that I'm able to spend some 'girl' time with you. I feel like it's been so long."
"Almost a year." Zanovia attested.
"Well, hunty, that is too long." Meeka replied. "You're a phenomenal mother and I must say, you and Zadduis are doing such a fantastic job with lil A'King. Ugh! He's so cute."
"I know." Zanovia gushed, thinking about her baby boy. "Sometimes, girl, it doesn't even feel real." Zanovia confessed.
"I bet." Meeka replied. "I can't wait until I have a little one. I can only hope they are as cute as baby A'King."
"Don't worry. Zanovia smiled. You keep creepin' w/ Capone and you'll have a little one in no time." Zanovia teased.
"Girl, shut up!" Meeka chuckled a little emberassed. Her and Capone had been getting a little friendly lately, but she did NOT want the nail tech lady or her hair stylist Kay-Kay to over hear ANY of that tea!
The two of them laughed.
In the middle of getting her hair done, Zanovia's phone rang, Zanovia's phone rang. Although she thought it would be the baby sitter, she had actually received a text from Zadduis.
"Oh, It's Zadduis." Zanovia said outloud.
"What he say?" Meeka inquired, nosily.
Zanovia's mouth dropped open and worry filled her eyes when she unlocked her iPhone and read the text message.
"Zanovia. Zanovia, what's wrong, girl?" She asked.
Zanovia took a deep breath and then responded. "He said... he said that he just caught wind that the feds are watching him."
Zanovia was so astounded that she couldn't hear Meeka's response. She didn't care what she said because right now, in this moment, her entire life was at risk of crumbling. Her lifestyle, her family and everything around her was at risk of being ripped from her hands.
