Bow Wow responds to a text from Ciara and laughs. His girlfriend asks what’s funny. He puts his cell phone close to him and says his friend did something stupid. His girlfriend comments, “no surprised” and wants to know what happened. He says it would embarrass his friend. “Uh huh,” she says, “so you’re talking to Ciara again.” Bow Wow turns his head towards her and says nothing.

Ciara suggests a couple of movies as she and her boyfriend stand by the shelf. He says he’s seen most of them already. He picks an action movie. There’s a pounding on the door and Ciara looks through the peephole. She sees Bow Wow’s girlfriend with her arms crossed. Ciara checks the locks to make sure they are shut. Bow Wow’s girlfriend yells that she better stay away from her man or she’ll break down the door. Her boyfriend calls security. Ciara stands against the door, her hand on her chest. Her boyfriend asks if she’s okay.

Her boyfriend is a really good guy and has taken care of her for two years. She’s also afraid of Bow Wow’s girlfriend. She might come home one day and find her car damaged. She prefers to stay where she is right now and wait until Bow Wow leaves his girlfriend to make any decisions.
