*~ Pardon me for the delay of writing the Prequel to "Some Things Are Meant
To Be"... Since the plot of "Made 4 Luving U" cannot be put into words, I
decided to make this story as the prequel to STAMTB.. After all, it makes
use of most of the characters... Alyssa and Hazel are still in it.. And it
takes place years before the events in STAMTB happened... Happy reading!!
"SCHOOL'S OUT!!" bellowed everyone as they ran through the
halls of the second floor of SISC. It was the last day of school and all
the sophomores raced through the halls, slid down the banisters and
rejoiced that Summer vacation was just a few days away.
"So, everyone's going to the gimmick tomorrow?," Alyssa asked
her friends who were rejoicing.
"Yup," replied Hazel, Alyssa's longhaired bestfriend. "How
'bout ya, Jerry?" she asked as she turned to face a boy who was busily
texting with his phone.
"Definitely," Jerry replied with a smile, "I'm bringin' Kelly
along.. Is that okay with you, guys?"
"It's fine if you and Kelly don't make out infront of us,"
snapped Owen, Alyssa's other friend.
"That's great!", exclaimed Alyssa, "same time, same place,
"GOT IT!", the three chorused. After they exchanged goodbyes,
Alyssa headed to the parking lot to meet Shaft, her boyfriend. He was to
pick her up and take her home. As soon as she saw a red Jaguar parked in
the parking lot, she smiled, approached the car and knocked on the window.
The driver rolled the window downward and greeted her with a
"Did I keep you waiting?", Shaft asked Alyssa as he leaned
forward to kiss her.
"Not really," Alyssa replied after she kissed him, "what's in
the back?" she curiously asked as she saw a bouquet of roses in the back
"Oh.. That.." Shaft said as he hesitated for a moment, "why
don't you come inside and I'll show you"
With that, Alyssa went to the other side and waited for Shaft
to open the door to the passenger seat. When it was opened, she sat down,
closed the door and smiled at Shaft.
"What's the bouquet of roses doing at the back?" Alyssa asked
Shaft hesitated and decided to give the bouquet of roses to
"Happy anniversary", he said as he gave her the bouquet
and planted a kiss on her cheek.
Confused, Alyssa blankly accepted the bouquet. Before Shaft
could say anything, Alyssa said, "Our anniversary is not until a week from
Shaft hesitated again at Alyssa's remark, "I know, I know." he
repeated with a smile, "I was just excited..that's all"
"Really now.." Alyssa replied with eyebrows raised
"I'm serious," Shaft answered, "and..I've got something to tell
"What's that?" Alyssa asked
Before he could ask her, a message alert tone was heard from
Shaft's phone, "Excuse me for a moment, okay?" he said to Alyssa
"Sure.." Alyssa replied
Shaft opened the message he received and reacted as he read the
Tell Alyssa U cnt go 2 d gimmick 2mor0w.. make up sme excuse
not 2 go..Happy anniversary, shaft!!Cya 2mor0w!! Marie Lou xx
Shaft hit 'Reply' on his phone and texted:
Im on the verge of doin' that.. Happy anniversary 2, shawty!
Cya 2morrow 2!! Shaft xx
After he replied, he kept his phone in his pocket before Alyssa
could get anymore curious.
"Anything wrong?" Alyssa asked Shaft
"Nothing, honey.." Shaft said as he looked at her, "that was
one of my homies telling me something about tomorrow."
Alyssa looked at him, "what about tomorrow?"
"Honey," Shaft began, "I can't go tomorrow"
"BUT WHY?!" Alyssa exclaimed, "you promised me that nothing
will interfere with our plans tomorrow!"
"I know I said that," Shaft said as he looked at Alyssa, "but
my homies and I are going to be doing something tomorrow. We've got some
unaccomplished requirements that we have to finish.. You know me, right?
I'm a lazy person, aye."
Alyssa thought of it for a moment as Shaft started the car and
started to drive. The two did not mutter a word until Shaft reached
Alyssa's home. Quietly, Alyssa stepped out carrying her stuff and the
bouquet of roses Shaft gave her.
"I'm sorry, honey," Shaft said before Alyssa closed the door,
"Call me when you're already okay."
Alyssa nodded her head in response.
"Love you," Shaft said as he saw Alyssa smile before she closed
the door. Shaft then drove off and headed to his house. Upon reaching the
gate to his home, he sat back and grabbed his phone to call Marie Lou.
"Shawty," Shaft said as Marie Lou answered the call
"Shaft!" Marie Lou exclaimed, "how's my boo?"
"I'm great," Shaft replied, "I've got to tell you something
"Okay," Marie Lou replied, "what's that?"
"I planned to give you a bouquet of roses," Shaft began, "but
Alyssa found them so I decided to give it to her. She might get suspicious
if I told her that the bouquet wasn't meant for her.. Will you forgive me,
"It's alright," Marie Lou said as she giggled, "you didn't have
to surprise me with that.. It's not your fault that Alyssa likes to snoop
Shaft nodded in agreement, "God! You have no idea how many
times I had to answer those questions she was firing at me! I was like
'leave those roses alone! They aren't meant for you, bitch!' "
Marie Lou giggled, "Calm down, Shaft.. So what did you tell
"I had to make excuses and shit to save my life, shawty," Shaft
replied, "I wanted to tell her that the bouquet was for the loveliest girl
in the world.. And that's you, shawty!"
"That's so sweet of you, Shaft," Marie Lou said as she blushed
at the remark.
"You deserve it," Shaft replied
"Is everything set for our gimmick tomorrow?" Marie Lou asked
"Not yet," Shaft replied, "I'm waiting for the bitch to call so
that she could tell me her verdict."
"Suppose she still doesn't allow you to go?" Marie Lou asked
"Then I will just disappear in the middle of the gimmick,"
Shaft replied, "it's just easy to do that. All you'll have to do is slip
out when they're playing in Timezone. She and her friends are too occupied
and too stupid to notice that!"
Just then, another call was being displayed on Shaft's phone..
It was from Alyssa.
"Gotta go, shawty," Shaft told Marie Lou, "she's calling. I'll
call you back!"
"Okay," Marie Lou said, "tell me what she says..Catch ya later!
Happy anniversary, boo!"
"Happy anniversary, shawty", Shaft said as he hung-up on Marie
"Hello" Shaft said as he received Alyssa's call
"I've decided," Alyssa said
Shaft grinned, "what's it going to be, honey?"
"I'm allowing you to go with your homies tomorrow," Alyssa
replied, "it's okay if you don't go with us. I understand"
Shaft rejoiced inside, "I knew you would understand, honey."
"I would do anything to make you happy, Shaft" Alyssa answered
"Maybe if you get out of my life--- I would be really, really
happy!" Shaft thought to himself, "Thanks a bunch for understanding,
honey." Shaft said
"I love you, Shaft" Alyssa said
"I love you too, honey" Shaft said
"Have fun tomorrow, okay?" Alyssa replied
"I will," Shaft assured, "Call you later" he said before he
hung-up. He smiled to himself and dialed Marie Lou's number again.
"Shaft?" Marie Lou said as she answered, "that was quick!"
"Yeah," Shaft said excitedly, "thank God it was!"
"So.." Marie Lou impatiently asked, "what's the verdict?"
"The bitch agreed!" Shaft excitedly exclaimed
"That's great!" Marie Lou rejoiced
"She doesn't know a single thing," Shaft said, "I'll meet you
tomorrow.. Same time, same place?"
"Yup," Marie Lou replied, "got that!"
"See you, shawty!" Shaft said as he hung-up. Before going out
of his car, he grinned heavily and thought, "Alyssa maybe smart but she's
downright stupid to be loving a player like me.. Does she know that I'm a
player? Oh right... she's too stupid to even think about it"
