â€Å"When are you going to start dressing like a girl, J?† I laughed â€Å"When the Pelicans trade Anthony Davis.† â€Å"Come on Jada you will never get a boyfriend dressing like that.† I rolled my eyes, Emma could be so annoying at times, when will she realize basketball is my passion, my life. Emma was almost always wearing a dress Emma was short and she had long, flowing blond hair and brown eyes, she also had skin as white as the moon. I on the other hand had long black dreads, and blue eyes. My Mom was white and my Dad is black making me bi-racial. I was also extremely tall.

I wonder if Dad would take me to meet him, I mean he took me when Anthony was drafted to see him. I walked up the wooden stairs, they creaked and warped after every step. I walked down the hall to my dads room, all the way at the end. The door was open a crack and I could just see in, he was sound asleep, he almost looked at peace if you didn t notice the family photo that had been punched, the gl ass broken laying on the bedside table. I shut the door and walked down the hall into my room. I sat on my bed, head in my hands I wanted to punch a hole in the wall, well another hole. I looked up and pulled out my phone. I scrolled through my contacts to find ‘Ant’ I hit dial.
