Dr. Trinity Dalton is 52, Lt. Tomika Cunningham is 52, Mayor Sabien Cunningham, Sr. is 52, Ray Wilsonoff is 33, Lydia Wilsonoff is 33 and Rashid Cunningham is 18.
"Hi, Trin'. How are you? Rough morning, wasn't it?!" Tomika hugged her old friend tightly; glad that the robbery at the Dalton home wasn't more dangerous than it turned out to be.
"Well, this little meeting here has called me away from official Police duty. Good thing the burglar is already locked up. But, I'd like to know why we're here. What's so important?" Tomika asked while taking her seat; shifting her eyes ever so slightly towards Rashid. She purposely wore contacts this morning, so he could see she meant business.
Rashid shifted nervously in his seat as Trinity greeted Mayor Cunningham. Rashid had a feeling that things were about to reach Code Red levels. Just because he was 18 didn't mean a damn thing when his mother got angry.
"Don't you leave me in here alone with this woman! I can't handle her by myself." Trinity whispers with a nervous chuckle. Sabien chuckled nervously, too.
Trinity had been on the business end of Tomika's wrath simyears before, when she was a suspect in Nick Michels' attempted murder. She almost lost her mind behind it. No sir, Trinity did not want to get caught in the middle of Tomika's crossfires today.
--"I made love to Erline Valdes and now she might be pregnant!" Rashid blurted out nervously. Dr. Dalton looked at Rashid and nodded in an appeasing manner to help compose him.
"I mean...she is pregnant and I might be the father." Rashid said, looking down at his hands.
he had to wash our sheets the night we left you and Marchon home alone? Huh?! Our bed, Rashid?! Our bed. Hmmph. And then...I caught a case because I was defending you to Cameron. Damn near messed up our friendship! Poor Tyisha is too young for all this drama. That's why she can't go out with you anymore. Cameron doesn't trust you around his daughter now."
"Just last week, I had to wear a freakin' orange jumpsuit, dammit!...I went and cleaned some strangers' house and their toilet!!! Your Momma cleaned somebody else's toilet for you, Rashid...(pointing to Rashid, but looking at Trinity) And this boy can't keep it in his pants or put a wrapper on it!"
"Get the Q-tips, Trinity, or whatever you need! I'm DONE. Go on and get this mess over with." Tomika sat back quickly and angrily wiping her eyes.
Rashid felt like he just got ripped a new one. He had a sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach because he didn't realize how much he'd hurt his mother. How much she'd sacrificed on his behalf.
Sabien felt for his boy, but decided he would reserve his comments for after the results came back in two months. He's so glad they don't have to wait a whole simyear after the baby is born to get the DNA results.
"Hi Lydia, it's nice to meet you. Ray...Lydia, I've got to make this quick. I've got another appointment." Trinity lied. She was exhausted and couldn't deal with any more conflicts today.
"Yes, we're both aware of the situation. Lydia has come here with me today to give me her support." Ray said calmly. Lydia looked out the window, vaguely.
"Well then, let's get started. The results should come back in two months." Trinity walked towards Ray.
"Nooo, I'm just going to swipe your mouth and that's it." Trinity said reaching for the gloves.
"Lydia, how are you doing?" Trinity asked as she finished with Ray.
When she excused herself to the bathroom, Trinity turned to Ray.
"I got it, Doc. I really don't believe I'm the father of Erline's baby. What we did was sooo long ago and Rashid's been with her since then. Lydia knows about it and she means the world to me. I'll do anything to keep the peace...for her and our baby." Ray looked too calm, Trinity thought. She watched as he ushered himself out the door to meet up with Lydia so they could leave.
Trinity sure was glad this meeting was over with.
I think Carla asked me awhile back if I knew who the father is...the answer is 'Yes I do'. But you guys will have to wait a couple more months in Simtime. LOL!
