Ellissia—a romantic set on finding love—and Kash —an entrepreneur focused on work—fell in love in spite of their differences. Now living in her mother’s home and earning modest wages, they set aside a little money from each paycheck to help start a family in the future. The two women relax after working long shifts; Maisonet as a prep cook at PF Changs and Phillips as a manager at Wendy's.
India Bolden first learned of her daughter Ellissia Maisonet's sexual identity when she discovered a love letter in the bathroom that Maisonet had written to a girlfriend.
While Maisonet wants to have a small wedding with immediate family only, Phillips doesn't want to think about it.
Maisonet fell for Phillips' eyes at a party on the corner of Midler and Colvin Street in Syracuse where they first met.
Phillips returns home with late night snacks purchased at the corner store.
Phillips and Maisonet try two bowling alleys on Friday night; the first too expensive and the second open only to 21 and older.
The couple plans to live together and have a child in two or three years. Phillips' younger brother, Javatae, is a possible sperm donor; Maisonet wants her child to look like Phillips.
Maisonet's tattoo representing her commitment to Phillips marked their second anniversary.
Phillips gets ready to drive Maisonet to work in the morning so she does not have to leave two hours earlier to catch the bus.
