The Spaces Between Pt. 2

What’s funny is I know Raj still fucks with the broad from time to time, he could never let her go. That’s the reason I started fuckin’ with Jayce about six years ago. Matter of fact, I wish I was with him now instead of Raj gropin’ on me in the shower, but that’s neither…
