The young rapper T.I. was still working hard promoting both his album and movie by traveling all around New York signing autographs, surprising fans with occasional concerts, and doing every form of media advertisement his manager and publicist could think of to get his work out there. It was stressful and really tiring at some points but he was proud of himself for creating such a buzz about something that he was so proud of and had so much fun making. The premiere of the movie was scheduled to take place a day before it hit theaters nationwide and T.I. was looking forward to it because then he could finally have time to himself to relax. He tried calling his man to see if he could make it to the premiere because he really wanted to see him but he didn't answer his phone. T.I. didn't know what part of the country he was in or what he was doing.
Flashes of light went off on a rather cool New York night and greeted the caramel colored rapper as he got out of him limo, arriving at the long-awaited premiere of the movie "ATL." It had been a long journey to get up to this very moment in time but it was all worth it to have all these people out here to celebrate something that he worked so hard on. It made him feel good and proud to be here, catching up with his costars, the director who was so fond and proud of him, but he was mainly happy because he knew that he didn't have to get up early in the morning tomorrow to make an appearance somewhere to talk about the movie. The moment was bittersweet to say the least, as he talked to reporters, while alongside Evan and Lauren. They were like the Three Musketeers and posed for many pictures together before everyone was ushered inside because the movie was about to start.
T.I. wasn't too critical about the movie but rather people's reactions to it. He was noticing if people were laughing when they were supposed to, getting angry when they should be, and just looking to see if they were truly enjoying the movie. For the most part, everyone seemed to be having a good time and the movie was great fun but a little thought in the back of his mind consumed him about halfway into the movie. Nelly had not returned his calls or responded to the messages he left him on his phone and he was slightly worried. He knew the older rapper was more than capable of taking care of himself but he couldn't help but to worry because he loved and missed him so much. He really wanted him to be here so they could share in the young rapper's big day together. To put his mind at ease, he decided that he would call him whenever he got back to his hotel and tucked that thought away and stared at the screen.
A round of applause was heard in the movie theater as the credits began rolling. There was his name, Clifford "Tip" Harris, in print and first on the cast list. It made him feel special and a sense of accomplishment blanketed him. There were times on set that he was extremely frustrated and truly thought of giving up but seeing him name like that just made everything, all the hard work, stress, and drama worth it. The reception of the people in the theater was also greatly appreciated as people began shaking his hand and telling him what a good job he did. All three of them. They all exited the theater and he was messing with his phone on the side as he saw Evan and Lauren making their way towards him. He put it away and waited for them to arrive, taking Evan's hand in his own and kissing Lauren on the cheek.
"I liked it!" Lauren said, as people began clearing out of the theater.
"Who knew we were such good actors?" Evan teased. "It was great! And did you see all those people clapping. They liked it too."
"Yea. Let's hope its number one this weekend."
"You want the number one album and movie in the country huh?"
"Wouldn't hurt man."
"You guys! I'm gonna miss you two."
"Not like we won't be seeing each other anymore you know Lauren. It'll just be hard with Clifford being a big movie star now and all."
"Shut up man! It will be hard though. We're all gonna be recognized for our work on this movie and will be so busy that we won't have time to just chill like we used to."
"I know. Sad isn't it?"
"Why the long faces you two? This is our premiere. Lighten up. No deep stuff tonight."
"What's wrong Lauren?"
"Evan said no heavy stuff remember? I don't wanna seem like I come to you guys only when I have problems or anything like that."
Evan looked at her with a worried look on his face. "What's up?"
"He left me. My boyfriend left me," Lauren said as tears began to form within her eyes.
"What?" Both men said, shocked.
"We broke up. Well he broke up with me."
"When did this happen?"
"Like a week after we finished the movie. We were at my house and he wanted sex and I told him no. I told him that I don't want to have sex with him, that I wanted us to make love. He said that he didn't see the difference and then he got mad and walked off. We got into this huge argument and he told me that it was over."
"Oh man. Are you okay?" Evan asked his female costar.
"No. He broke my heart. This came out of nowhere. I'm so lost without him. I miss him."
"It's gonna be okay. He didn't deserve you anyway. Never did."
"Cliff's right Lauren. Maybe this was for the best. Now you can forget that loser and move on to someone who will treat you right."
"He didn't mistreat me. I was so excited to have him come with me tonight to see the movie because I worked so hard on it you know? I wanted him to be proud of me."
"I know the feeling," T.I. said softly, alluding to the absence of Nelly. "But you don't need him to be proud of you. We know, and you know, how hard you worked on this movie and you already know how proud Evan and I are of you. You just gotta be proud of yourself first."
"I am. But I really wanted his support, especially tonight."
"I know. It's gonna be okay though. I can assure you that."
"He hasn't called you or anything?"
"No. I mean we've had fights before but never one this big. He said so many things to me and I said so many things back, out of anger mainly, that I don't see us ever getting back together after that," she said as she started silently weeping.
"It's gonna take a while to get over him but you will. He's not worth you crying like this."
"I love him Tip. I love him so much. He's worth everything to me."
"I hate to say it like this but it doesn't seem like he loves you as much as you love him because if that were true then you wouldn't be here right now like this."
"Yea. He's not worth this. Why can't you see that? This relationship was emotionally draining for you all this time. He wasn't giving you what you needed and wanted."
"I feel so bad right now."
"Because of him?"
"No. Because every time I have problems I come running to you two. Why do you guys put up with me?"
"Stop it!" Evan said firmly. "Cliff and I will always be there for you if you need us. We don't put up with you. We're your friends and we want to see you happy. And, in all honesty, I think that you will be now that this guy is gone."
"Me too. I mean the jerk was so selfish and only into himself. How you put up with that garbage for so long is beyond me."
"Because deep down, I knew that he loved me. Remember I told you guys that our relationship wasn't always like this. I guess I was secretly hoping that it would somehow go back to that sooner or later."
"Yea. Its way harder when you're in love I think. This is a good thing though."
"Why?" Lauren said as she stared at Evan.
"Because now you know what love is not. Love is not supposed to be that way. I know you say you love him but I don't think its real love that two people genuinely feel for each other."
"He's right," T.I. said. "You could also be right too though. I mean, you probably fell in love with the man he was before and when he changed, you just wanted the old one back so that's why you stuck it out."
"I guess. I don't know what I'm gonna do now."
"What do you mean? Don't get hung up on this. You're too young and far too beautiful to let this guy get the best of you."
"I agree with Evan Lauren. As harsh as it may sound, you gotta pick up the pieces and move on."
"I know that but I don't want to. I want him back."
"You have to be strong now. For you. I know it's gonna be hard but you gotta do this for you. If not then you're gonna become obsessed with this."
"You're right. As hard as I know it's gonna be, I have to do it. I have to move on."
"You're gonna be okay. I know you will."
"Let's hope so. I have to go. Thank you. Thank you both," Lauren said as he kissed both her male costars on the cheek and disappeared in the still think crowd.
"She's gonna be aight. She's a strong girl," T.I. said a she looked at her vanish into the crowd.
"Yea. So how have you been?"
"Tired. Been promoting the hell out of this movie. I'm so glad it's finally over. Well you know what I mean."
"Yea. It's been a stressful past couple of week for all of us."
"I guess," the caramel colored rapper responded, his mind wandering.
"You okay Cliff?"
"Huh? Yea. Just thinking about some stuff."
"You sure? You seem sad or something."
"Naw I'm good. But how have you been little brother?"
"Good. Been relaxing and stuff."
"I know I said that we would hang out after the movie wrapped and stuff but I haven't had any time."
"It's cool hommie. You are a busy man these days."
"Still. I do feel kinda bad."
"Don't be man. We'll hang out whenever we can."
"Okay. So other than that you okay?"
"Any new girlfriends I should know about?"
"Naw," Evan said as he nervously laughed and blushed a little. "Nothing like that."
"What? A cute nigga like you without a female?"
"You know why."
"Oh fuck! I forgot about that. I'm sorry man. I'm a real idiot."
"It's okay. I'm still on you. Can't just turn it off like that."
"I know. I know I've told you this before but you're a very special guy Evan."
"Just not special enough."
"Don't say that. It's just circumstance."
T.I. looked at his costar for a minute. He did feel bad for him but there really wasn't anything he could do. He then noticed someone in a suit making their way toward him and his heart froze in his chest. He caught himself. "Sorry about that. What were you saying?"
"Nothing. You looking for someone?"
"Naw," he said as he looked at the man and his heart started beating faster and faster with each passing second.
"What's going on Tip?" the man of his dreams asked him as he joined the twosome and shook his hand. "Great movie durrty."
He had to remain cool about this. "Ay man. What you doing here nigga?"
"Just came out to support you man. Had to see what all this hype was about."
"Thanks man. Oh, this is my boy Evan," T.I. said as he stared into his man's eyes.
"What's good man? You did a good job," he said as he shook the young actor hand.
"Thanks. I'm a big fan of your music."
"Thanks man. You boys did good onscreen. Ya'll should be looking out for the Oscars."
"What you lying for nigga?" T.I. said as he laughed.
"Damn Evan. I did a tour with him last year for a couple of months and found out that he's really annoying. Props to you for putting up with his ass for so long."
"He has his moments but he's a good kid."
"Why you two punks ganging up on me for? I know I'm the star and all but damn."
"Ego as huge as his head. You see what I'm talking about?"
Evan laughed. "Yea. He aight though."
"I guess so. Well, I just wanted to come by and congratulate you boys on the movie. It's gonna be a hit. I gotta bounce up out of here though. It was nice meeting you Evan man. Later Tip," Nelly said as he shook both their hands and left. It was almost physically impossible being so close to his man and not being able to touch him.
"You were on tour with Nelly?"
"Yea. It was him, the St. Lunatics, and me. It was a great tour."
"Sounds like fun."
"It was. But look, it's getting late and I gotta go."
"Yea me too. It was good catching up with you."
"Same here. We'll do it some other time."
T.I. hugged his friend and left in a hurry. He had to catch up to Nelly. He looked so damn good in his suit as he saw him waiting outside, for his limo most likely. He walked over to him. "Hey."
"Hey man. Where you staying at baby?" he asked the young rapper softly.
"The Waldorf Towers. Penthouse suite. Don't be late."
"I won't," he said as he winked and got into his limo that had just arrived.
T.I. stayed a little while longer to take pictures and giving his comments about the movie before he left. He relaxed himself in the limo by resting his head back and loosening his tie because it was starting to bother him. Nelly being there at his movie premiere meant so much to him. The ride back to his hotel couldn't possibly be any longer than it was. It seemed like they caught every traffic light the state of New York had to offer and the traffic was horrendous, for it being this time of night. The older rapper looked so sexy in his suit that T.I. almost lost him composure in front of Evan and everyone else when he walked up and started talking to them. He just wanted to grab him and hold on to him so tightly the whole time he was talking to him and Evan. He raced out of the limo and up the luxurious hotel to the very top floor where the penthouse suite occupied. As the elevator doors opened, he saw Nelly staring out a window, his back to him, waiting for him.
"You're late," Nelly said as he turned around.
T.I. walked up to his man and instantly crushed their lips together. Nelly, in turn, wrapped his strong arms around his young love and kissed him back hard. This was right. It felt right. It didn't matter what Murphy Lee or anyone else said or thought because they weren't here right now. They didn't know the true extent of Nelly's feelings for this man that he was kissing right now. They didn't know anything. The caramel colored rapper tightly grabbed on to the older rapper that he loved so much like he never wanted to let him go as they continued with one of the most sincere kisses either of them had ever felt. Nelly felt blood rushing into his already semi hard dick as his lover continued working on his lips, which he was sure were pink by now because of how aggressive T.I. was being.
"Damn you look good baby," T.I. said. "Couldn't help myself."
"Oh I don't mind at all. I like it when you act on impulses," he said as he kissed him one more time.
T.I. found his keycard and let them both into his grand room. "What are you doing here?"
"Is that how you greet your man?"
"No. What happened out in the hallway is how I greet my man."
"Well can you greet me some more then? I really, really missed you."
"Shut up! What are you doing here?"
"I came to support my baby. I knew it would mean a lot to you so I came out here for a few hours to see you."
"A few hours? When you gotta leave?"
"In about an hour or two."
"Why baby?" T.I. pouted and whined as he fell on the bed. "I only get to spend that much time with you?"
"Sorry Tip. It's work. I gotta catch the red eye tonight because I have to be in Las Vegas tomorrow. You know I wanna stay right here with you though right?" Nelly asked his man as he sat on the bed next to him and kissed his cheek.
"Yea. Work sucks!"
"If it wasn't for work then I couldn't afford to buy you that expensive piece of jewelry you got dangling around your neck right now, which looks really good on you by the way."
"I never did thank you for it," the caramel colored rapper said as he slowly began crawling toward the older rapper. "You wanna play a game?"
"I can't baby. I don't want it to be rushed."
"Come on. We can do a quickie right now. I really, really missed you too."
"As tempting as that sounds and trust me baby, you are very tempting, I can't. You mean too much to me to just have a quickie. I love you remember?"
"You know you don't want to do it like this either. We'll only have an hour of fun then I'll have to roll up out of here."
"There'll be other times. I'm not going anywhere," he said as he kissed his young love. T.I. rested his head on his man's chest and felt it rise and fall with every strong breath he took.
"Thank you for coming out and supporting me tonight. You don't know what it meant to me to have you there."
"You worked so hard on this project. Of course I'm gonna be there to support you."
"You're a good guy Cornell. One of the very few left. I glad you're mine."
"I'm yours huh? Selfish ass!"
"Damn right! When it comes to you I'm the most selfish ass nigga you'll ever meet. No one's gonna take you away from me."
"That made me feel special Tip."
"Well you are. And don't you ever forget it. What's wrong?"
"Huh? What do you mean? Nothing's wrong."
"You're lying. What's going on?"
"I just wanted to see you baby. I didn't want to bitch about all my problems. Especially not tonight."
"Your problems are my problems Cornell," T.I. said as he looked up and into the older rapper's eyes. "We're a team and I know something's bothering you so tell me."
"I give up. It's Murphy. We talked recently."
"We just ended up fighting. I acted like such a jerk. He came to me and told me that he missed me and I just didn't care. It's like after all the shit we've been though I don't care if we ever become friends again or not."
"You don't mean that baby. He's your best friend."
"I'm just tired of trying Tip. I'm so fucking tired of this shit."
"I know you're frustrated but you owe it to yourself and him to try and work it out. You two have been so close for so long. You have to try and fix this. Be receptive to him baby."
"Why? Why did he decide to start talking to me now all of a sudden?"
"You think he's up to something?"
"I don't know. I don't think so. You weren't there baby."
"I know. I know."
"The things he said to me that day. His tone of voice. How he treated me all this time. I don't think I can forgive that."
"You need to Cornell. It's not worth it to lose a best friend. Especially over stupid shit like this."
"He thinks I'm a hypocrite. I rap about women but I'm fucking around with a nigga. He's right. How did this happen?"
"You having second thoughts about us?"
"No. No baby. Never that. But he is right isn't he?"
"I guess. But it's not like we asked for this. It just happened."
"That's what I told him. I don't think he believes me."
"I know he's hard-headed but you gotta keep trying. Don't give up on him. You'll never forgive yourself if you do. He means that much to you."
"I know. You're right. He might not want to speak to me again after our last conversation though."
"Was it that bad?"
"Yea. I didn't care about anything. He told me that he missed me and I didn't do anything but fight with him."
"It was a mistake. You're still hurt by him."
"Yea but there was no reason for how I acted. I fucked up once again."
"You're being too hard on yourself Cornell. Just relax."
"You don't understand Tip. I let my rage get the best of me. I told him that I honestly thought he was gonna go to the press and out me."
"And he's not?"
"No. He scolded me for having such little faith in him. He said that he was mad at me but that he would never go to the press and do me like that."
"I felt so bad baby. I think our friendship is beyond repair now and it's all my fault. Why is this shit happening to me?"
"I don't know. It'll all work out for the best in the end. You gotta believe that."
"I hate seeing you like this."
"I hate feeling like this."
Nelly's cell phone went off in his pocket and it startled both of them. "What's that?"
"The alarm in my cell phone. It means I gotta go."
"Yea. Actually, I'm running late. You gonna walk me to the door?"
"I don't wanna!" the young rapper pouted as he sat up on the bed and folded his arms.
"Come on baby. This is hard for me too. Don't be a brat," Nelly said as he flashed his sexy smile.
T.I. hopped off of the bed as Nelly grabbed his hand and held it. They slowly walked to the door, neither man wanting it to end. Nelly turned and faced his love when they reached their destination. "I don't want to say goodbye to you. I don't know how to."
The younger rapper saw the sincerity in his man's eyes. It was adorable. "Kiss me, tell me you love me and that you'll call me later, kiss me again, and then leave."
Nelly explicitly followed the equation that was mapped out for him by the young movie star. The first goodbye kiss lasted extremely long because Nelly couldn't pull away as T.I. was sucking on his lower lip and it felt so damn good. Once the passionate kiss was finally broken, the St. Lunatic rapper said his lines according to what was just said to him as he stared directly into the hazel eyes that belonged to the man that meant everything to him. The caramel colored rapper initiated the second goodbye kiss and continued with the tradition of sucking his man's lower lip and even managing to nibble on it on several occasions. He knew that this was one of Nelly's most sensitive areas and also knew that this single act alone gave his man a one way ticket to heaven. T.I. had his hands resting on his love's shoulders while Nelly had him tightly around his narrow waist. Nelly was running more and more late by the second and reluctantly broke away from his skinny prince. They hugged for a short while until he disappeared behind the elevator doors.
