Nachine finished up the prep and called up Vapor before the store open. "Vapor, you got some coloreds lined up to come out here to sell my stuff ."
"Yeah, they will be wearing Cody colors," Vapor said.
"When do I get paid?"
"Nachine slammed the phone down in the office, she heard the owner coming.
Qadira called to Delores about her drawer, "I've counted it twice, it's short $15."
Nachine crept away from the office. She starred at Delores marching to the front counter. She rushed to follow her.
"If my old man back stealing from the drawer again he's gone," Delores said. Her boyfriend shoved her back to the office area.
"Did you hear who is the thief?" Rochelle asked Nachine.
"It's your fault I had to steal from the cash drawers," Sebastian said.
"Where's my money for today?" Rochelle asked, pinching Nachine.
"All you want is money," Nachine said pulling two $20 bills from her breasts area and slapped them in her hand. "Why don't you get a hustle?"
"I am running with the people with no hustle," Rochelle said. "And I need money to run with the Black Finest. I don't want them to see me as a beggar.
"You sound stupid, Sebastian," Delores said. "You're stealing from me."
"Delores says he is the one counting down the money at night he can't explain shortage," Qadira said.
"Mama, don't start with me," Rochelle said. "Sebastian steals from the drawers again. Don't give him another chance mama. He is the one counting down the money at night, and he can't explain the shortage."
"You two get up front to work the counter," Delores said.
Sebastian came in and started work on the computer then he moved to the back of the freezer area when the crowd rushed in during lunch. Nachine had sold two of her marked dinners when the yelling started. She left the counter arriving at the back where frozen boxes of cut whole chicken and boxes of fries were stacked outside of it.
"I need you to stop stealing from me, Sebastian, " Delores said. "If you want our relationship to work."
"I didn't take the money," Sebastian said. "It's your daughter."
"No, it's not," Delores said.
