You are currently unconscious at St. Augustine’s Medical Center of Troose. The doctors have placed you in a medically induced coma from all of the head trauma you’ve sustained. You have a broken jaw, broken nose, cracked eye socket and ruptured spleen. Your mother has just arrived at the hospital to receive the news. She proceeds to have a conversation with your grandmother and uncle.
Warning: Strong use of inappropriate and foul language in the following dialogue.
Mom:”It was all my fault, I should’ve known better than to let him go over that way.”(sobbing uncontrollably)
Uncle Rocco: “Tammy (your mom), Don’t blame yourself sis, It’s okay. I felt like it was more of my fault, than anybody else. I was just with him last weekend. He is gonna be fine Tammy. Trust in Jesus, Sis.”
Granny: “Yes, Rocco, I serve a powerful God, in Jesus name! please watch over my grand baby”(sobbing)
Mom: “I just can’t believe I let this happen.”
Uncle Rocco: “Listen, Im gonna call Bishop Henry Dixen, to come down and say a prayer for y’all. I promise you T.Q, is in God’s hands and he will be fine.
Skooby walks in visibly perturbed by the recent news. He storms in the hospital greeting everyone and asking for the room number of Ty’Qwonne. Rocco looks at Skooby scornfully as he walks away.
Uncle Rocco: “Yo, Skooby, lemme holla at you real quick”
Skooby waves Uncle Rocco off in a flippant manner. Disregards Rocco entirely and walks toward the room.
Scooby walks in the room and sees you bandaged up and hooked up to the machines. Tears begin to weld up in his eyes, as he realizes that you are in bad shape.
Skooby: “Fuck…..who in the hell did this to you!..Why the hell you ain’t text me to let me know where you was at?”
Skooby: (tears dropping from his face)
Skooby: “You my lil cuzzin, I am always gonna look out for you. No matter what. You can’t pass away on me, TQ.”
Skooby: (phone vibrates and rings)
Skooby: “Wattup nigga, I’m at the hospital, I gotta hit you back. Somebody got T.Q.! On the dead homies, I need to know who did this.”
Voice on the other end of the phone tells Skooby that the Mezza’s had youtubed the whole incident and placed it online. The Mezza’s have a YouTube channel that shows all of their parties and intimidation tactics.
Skooby: “Say what!!, On Stone Gang Blood?!, tweet me the link my nigga! It’s on. Somebody gotta feel it tonight. On Bloods!!”
Storms out of hospital and bumps into Uncle Rocco. Rocco grabs Skooby.
Skooby: “Get cho fuckin hands off me, whats wrong wit you!”
Rocco: “Listen, Daniel (Skooby’s real name), I already know what you are thinking, you wanna retaliate. But think before you act.”
Skooby: “Nah, fuck all that! I’ma gangsta, Ain’t no peace talks going on here. You saw what they did to my lil cousin.”
Rocco: “Listen, Daniel, Nothing good is gonna come out of this. You already know. Think about what your gonna do. It’s a constant cycle of violence that will never be resolved. When will it stop. You are killing your own people.”
Skooby:”My people?, them niggas ain’t never gon’ be my people’s. This shit is deeper than skin color. People done lost fathers and kids behind this gang banging shit. I done lost homeboys to the penitentiary and cemetery behind this shit. My dead homies ain’t never coming back. This is all I know. This is my set. That is my race, fuck all that other shit. Save that peace talk for Farrakhan, Im active.”
Skooby storms out of hospital.
Rocco: “If you wanna ruin your life go ahead!!”(screaming aloud at Skooby)
At the 45 Ballstone hood house, the gang members are awaiting the retaliation plan.
Big Trick- (gang leader): Okay, Stonez, Even though TQ ain’t from da hood, something gotta be done. They tryin to make the hood look soft. So, load the ratchets (guns) up and listen to the lil homie Skooby.
Scooby: “Okay, this is what we gon’ do. I want FatTroy to park over here…..”(showing google map location)
Part 9 coming soon.
