Where is all ya'll new clothes at? He is concerned about them and all of the nice clothes they use to have; and why they are dressing the way, they do recently.

However, she only puts on Vicki Secrets and a robe, smelling good enough to eat. She approaches Omega and says "hey baby it took you long enough to come see me! He is pleased with what he smells and his mind is running wild with what is under the robe that she has on. Then he says with a smile on his face 'if I knew you was doing it like this I would've been! Up here. She gives him a hug to greet him and he asks her can you braid my hair? She says of course, she tells Sheeka to bring her a comb and the hair food grease. She tells Omega here sit on these pillows. She sat a few on the floor by the coach, and he does.

He says im I-Iight, you know same ol shit, different day trying to get hood rich or die trying. She says word! I feel that and they continue to converse and about half way through braiding his hair, there's a knock on the door. Sheeka goes to the door and looks through the peek hole.

Its K'mar as K'mar shouts through the door; Mira! open the fuckin door, I know you're in there, I seen someone come to the peek hole, so open this fuckin door! Mira shouts out, "I'm coming" and scared out of her mind she scrambles for her clothes. She remembers how K'mar told her not to have any other nigga's up in her apartment, no matter who it is. So she tells Omega 'go sit at the table and act like Sheeka is doing your hair'. Mira opens the door and greets K'mar with a kiss, hey baby! He kisses her back reluctantly; however, he's suspicious about why it took so long to open the door. She says I was in the bedroom and didn't want to disturb Sheeka from doing Omega's hair. He doesn't believe her and starts to scream at her, what is that nigga doing in here? What did I tell you? She says he's just getting his hair braided, he ain't doing nothing! Omega hears the commotion and gets up to explain, yo! Mira and Sheeka grew up with me and we just cool like that.

He knows how K'mar get down and he didn't want any drama around his projects to bring heat to himself to slow down his money flow. However, K'mar took it as he was shook. So as he was walking down the stairs, he hears him say, 'I'll push that nigga right now' and he hears him coming. He starts to run down the stairs, because he remembers that he left his ratchet in his car. And as he gets to the front door, he sees K'mar's boys in a van parked out front, next to his C.L. Benz, therefore, he walks by calmly. He remembers that he doesn't have his burner, but he does have a grenade on him. So he takes the pin out and throws it under the van, then he starts to run. The nigga's in the van don't notice what he does. Now K'mar is out of the building shouting to his boys, "get that nigga." Omega shouts to his boys, "ride or die." They start to reach for their heat. Omega yells to them yo! Blast that nigga K'mar he's out to push him. Shim Shawn lets him know yo! K'mar boys are strapped heavy in that van. All of a sudden, the van explodes and Omega says sarcastically, what van? Then a shootout ensues. Bullets flying everywhere, however, no one else gets hit.

Chapter Five"Throwback Thoughts"
Treecy and Monty are sitting in one of the bedrooms alone; their mother is out tricking or getting high somewhere? They are talking about how they use to live when their father was home. They are reminiscing about how happy all of them use to be and how affectionate and loving their mother use to be. How they use to go on family trips all the time, all the nice cars their father had, the mini mansion they had. And since their father had so much money and power; how he had paid the man that ran the housing projects, a bundle of money to have the whole top floor of building 5, done over and renovated to be one big penthouse apartment that only his family stayed in 'besides the dogs' when they didn't want to stay in the mansion. They had plenty of friends in the projects. Some out of fear of their father and some out of love for their father. Before he got locked up, he was "that dude". He had Alabama housing projects on smash. He supplied everybody in the projects as well as the other blocks. He has mad respect for his elders, so what he did was had all the elderly moved to one single building, so they wouldn't have to put up with the young bucks hanging out front, selling drugs in front of where they lived. And if you made sells in, around, or in the circumference of the building, you got dealt with right away. Their father big Dixie had a small army called "DEATH-BEFORE-DISHONOR" or D.B.D. And all of them were loyal to him to the death, because he took very good care of them. He was fair, however, he ruled with an iron fist. He took his family to church every Sunday and always blessed the church with a substantial donation; therefore, the preacher was always pleased to see him. The preacher use to try to talk some sense into him about getting out of the game. "Dixie when you gonna stop sinning and come do the lords work, it's your calling". However, when he started talking like that, Big Dixie use to tell him "Rev I really can't talk about it right now, I have some important business to take of, but we'll talk soon o.k. And rushed off. Big Dixie liked the preacher because he did a lot for the children and the community. And was a messenger of the lord. Dixie believed in God, he just wasn't beat for the enlightening spills the preacher dropped on him. He would get out, when he was ready. He also had money in other things, such as supermarkets, gas stations, and liquor stores; however, he was a silent partner with the owners. He made sure business stayed good and that none of the businesses were ever robbed. He also had ties to a few police officials and several people in city hall including the mayor. Most people didn't know that. He kept all of his business affairs just that, business and silent.
