CHAPTER I – PYRAMID

The way you say my name makes me feel like
I’m that nigga
But I’m still unemployed
You say it’s big but you take it
Ride cowgirl
But your love ain’t free no more
But your love ain’t free no more

She’s working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight…….

As the song ended, G ended her performance spinning down the center stage pole on the main stage at Club Pyramid.  Money was flowing in every direction as she put on the show as she put on yet another stellar performance.

As she proceeded to make her way around the stage, picking up piles of bills that were thrown at her feet as she performed, the crowd was applauding and praising her name as she walked away.  In their eyes, she was a queen personified.  Her hourglass frame and unique moves brought men and women near and far to Club Pyramid just to see her perform.  She was a true to form raw talent.

G picked up the last of her few bills, and sashayed her way off stage and made way for the next girl to begin her set.  The music was blasting and people were packed all around the stage, as it was every night from Wednesday-Sunday.

When G got to her vanity, she placed all the money neatly on her table.  She took a long hard look at herself in the mirror.  Her small clock sitting to the left of her read 2:30 a.m.  She asked herself how much longer she would decide to stay.  As she contemplated removing her makeup and calling it a night, Chance walked up behind her and slid his hands around her waist.

“You leaving?  I got a couple guys in VIP requesting your presence” he said softly in her ear.

“I’m really not in the mood for this shit tonight, Chance.  I just want to count my money and go home” G said.

“Look.  You not about to miss out on this money, and I’m not about to miss out on this money.  So whatever lil’ attitude you got, you need to wrap that shit up and give these niggas what they want, aight?!” he barked.  He slapped her on her ass and walked away.

“Don’t keep them waiting, you got five minutes” he said.

He was drunk.  She could smell the Hennessey on his breath.  It wasn’t like it was unusual for him to be drunk at the club, but she wished for at least one night, he would let her dance and go home.  Instead, he continued his usual routine of pimping her out.

Chance was G’s boyfriend, and co-owner of the club.  When G wasn’t dancing, she was also force-fed into escorting for high-end business clients that Chance and his co-owner Slick liked to entertain.  The business clients in question, were nothing more than the top hustlers and drug dealers in the city, and anyone else who decided to come into town who was highly respected in the game.  Since G was “married” into the lifestyle, that meant she was down for the cause.  I guess that meant if she was willing to dance for money, she was willing to have sex for it too.
