Our mutual willingness to blow off work, however or at least roll in late because we were lingering over breakfast , did make me feel certain that Seung would soon become my boyfriend.

Does that mean that you, Seung Chung, a football-loving, former fraternity brother who grew up in Maryland, are to be part of an arranged marriage?
Finally the catastrophizing in my head stopped. He explained that, weeks before, he had begun a campaign to make his parents like, accept or at least not hate me, and to not disown him.

Since then, he swore off love because he knows that'll just make them a target for others and he can't be there to protect them. Until he meets Mikayla. Mikayla doesn't believe in love either, especially from any of the guys in the hood who'll promise you the world only to leave you with a baby in your belly and nothing else.
She remembers the way her deadbeat father would get drunk and abuse her mother, and believe that if given the chance, men will just want to take advantage of her and hurt her in the end. She has little trust for men. The only one she can trust is her little brother Latrell. But lately, she's becoming more and more worried about Latrell and the people he's been hanging around with.
When she and Marion are faced with the trials and tribulations of love, she calls off their relationship and tried to move on with her life. However, when Roman becomes upset after Marion's performance slips, he takes his frustrations out on Mikayla, just as he did Ramona. In the end, Marion reigns supreme and Roman becomes erased, leaving Latrell struggling with trying to become the next best drug dealer. It's always family over everything. When Marion becomes overwhelmed with the life of a married man and failed business partner, he returns back to what he knows.
The streets. Leaving Mikayla, and their daughter to fin for themselves, but luckily, there are still some good men in the world. Rocco came in their lives at just the right time. Although he felt like Mikayla was a blessing to him.
