Boom, Boom! Two shots fired around twelve midnight on the step of the victim. People running as if their lives are on the verge of being over as a car spends off down Murder Blvd. Ten minutes later, the people are outside on their porches and you hear a mother screaming, “NOT MY BABY,” as she runs towards the bloody body laying on the sidewalk ten steps away from the door. Sounds of police sirens were rapidly starting to grow louder and louder as a stampede of police cars arrive at the scene. The cops tell the mother, “Ma’am we need you to please back away from the body until we investigate the scene.” As this is going on, the victim’s wife arrives to the scene, hugs his mother and starts to cry as loud as the sirens. “Why my son? Why Lamar?, Says the mother.” His wife, Tracey, answers and says, “Nobody will ever know why,” in a very suspicious way. Just a routine day in the tough streets of Compton, California.
Now that Dev was gone, Lamar has no one to look up to or to be around except his mother. Lamar got caught up with different girls and had got two girls, Yvette and Tamisha, pregnant around the same time and they was best friends but had no clue that they had the same babydad. Three years passed, Lamar meets his grade school crush, Tracey, and they start to talk again. Tracey doesn’t know anything about how Lamar makes his money and that he had two other kids. They fall in love in the span of three months until the day came when Lamar wanted to settle down and marry Tracey. They get married shortly after they fall in love and Lamar wants to have another kid with Tracey. Tracey was born with infertility and she never told Lamar. Lamar wanted kids even though he had already had two by other women that Tracey didn’t know about. Tracey tries to find ways about her inability to have kids so she make reservations at a nice, fancy restaurant so that she could tell him over dinner. They go to the decorated and color coordinated restaurant later on the night and while they are eating Tracey grabs his hand, kisses him on the lip and tell him that she loves him. Before he could even reply to what she had said, Tracey tells Lamar that she can’t have kids. Lamar looks at her with a frown on his face and asks her if she is serious. She tells him how serious she is and apologizes for not telling him ahead of time. He looks at her with a fake smile and states, “No biggie baby I’m sure God will bless me with kids, now let’s get out of here.” They go home and try to get some rest for work in the morning, but meanwhile there is a knocking on the door.
I am writing this slow because I know that you can’t read fast. We don’t live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the paper that most accidents happen within 20 miles from your home so we moved. I won’t be able to send you the address, as the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they left so that they wouldn’t have to change their address. ...
DOOM, DOOM, DOOM! Three more knocks on the door as Lamar and Tracey are coming down the stairs. Lamar looks out the window only to see both of his babymoms standing at the door with his children. He tries to convince Tracey that it was just the Jehovah Witnesses coming back since they wasn’t they earlier. As Tracey is going back upstairs, one babymom yells, “LAMAR YOU HAVEN’T SEEN YA BABY IN 3 YEARS I THINK HE STARTING TO LOKING LIKE YOU A LITTLE BIT.” Tracey rushes back down the steps and opens the door with an attitude. She asked the two girls why they were in front of their door with their bastard kids. The women respond quickly by saying, “Well yea these bastard kids are Lamar’s responsibility.” They leave the babies on Lamar’s couch and leave without saying a word. Meanwhile, Tracey looks at Lamar with a look as if she could kill him at the particular time. She asks Lamar if the kids were his and if so why didn’t he tell her? With a blank look on his face, Lamar responds by saying yes and also tells her that that wasn’t the only secret he was keeping from her. He continues by telling her that he had AIDS and that there was a chance of her having it also. Tracey immediately goes to the kitchen to grab a knife, but Lamar runs in after her and stops her before she gets to the knife drawer.
The day started out as your typical summer morning of a teenager, trying to sleep in late. Little did I know that I would soon be involved in an incident that would forever change my outlook on life.

They get into a big argument in which Tracey punches him in the eye and almost bites the skin off of his hand. Lamar goes upstairs and packs his clothes and come back downstairs grabs his two kids and tell Tracey that he will file for divorce and that he would be at his mother’s house for the time being. Tracey sits on her couch and calls her brother who lives down the street from Lamar’s mother house to see if she could borrow his car that weekend to run some errands. He tells her that he would leave the keys onthe step of the house at 201 W. Murder Blvd. Lamar gets to his mother’s house and his mother instantly grabs the two kids before even seeing if everything was ok with Lamar who couldn’t see out of one eye, who was wearing a ripped bloody shirt and whose nose had dried up blood all around it. Eventually she notices the injuries that her son had endured and she questions him about what happen. He tells her about his problems and just like she always had did she tells him about how he never been nothing and never would. “Your twenty years old and your still making the mistakes of a five year old,” his mother states as she cries hysterically looking at her grandkids. She goes on to say, “When will you ever learn.
These kids are going to be a dumb as their father unless you change your ways.” The next morning arrives; the sky is still watching everything that is taking place on this bright sunny day in the summer of 2001. Lamar is sitting on the step playing with his kids until his mother was done cooking breakfast. He takes the kids in the house and comes back out to sit on the porch. He saw a red Chevy pull into a driveway right across the street from his mother’s house. The guy that gets out of the car walks across the street, gets in Lamar face and immediately starts an argument about what Lamar had done to Tracey. This was Tracey’s brother who had just got out of jail for assaulting an off duty police officer. They argue and argue until Lamar’s mom comes out and break the confrontation up. A couple hours later, Lamar had tried contacting Tracey to apologize but she kept sending him straight to voicemail. It was now 11:56 p.m., he calls Tracey one last time before he goes to sleep and she answers. She tells him that she forgive him and that she is outside because she wants to see him. He puts his slippers, with a hole in the front showing his big toe, on and goes outside around 11:59 p.m. He opens the door and he sees no one so he goes on the porch to see if someone was near the tree that had been blocking the other side of the fence. Not a soul in sight, so he goes down the steps and makes his way across the street to see if she was at her brother’s house. As he is walking near the sidewalk, you hear complete silence……And then……BOOM BOOM!
When I was younger, in my middle school years, I would get so angry at her for being my mother. She didn’t teach me how to shave my legs; I had to learn from my best friend.

When I first started wearing make-up it wasn’t because she brought me into her room and carefully showed me how to blend soft brown eye shadow ...
You see, Tracey was the one that had gave him AIDS, but never told him and made him think he got it from someone else to make him look bad. Tracey was the one who had paid the two women to go to the investigator’s office to pen the murder on her brother since he had already had a record.
