Circa Summer ’02 Pt. 3

On my way home I was able to call my Godmother, who also called Aunt Niecey, who informed my cousin Aisha of what happened. As soon as I walked in the apartment, my Godmother and I left right back out to head down S.W. to Aunt Niecey and Aisha. Issa bout to be a shootout. …

Circa Summer ’02 Pt. 2

Things between Terrence and I got deep, quickly. I knew he cheated. I knew he loved me. It just didn’t add up; love and cheating. Terrence was my first boyfriend I had sex with and was in a real relationship with. He tried to protect me from certain things but it didn’t really work out…

Circa Summer ’02

I thought all night about if I’d meet Terrence or not. Issa set up. No, couldn’t be. Could it? He’s seen me with Fred so he knows I talked to him. Sex. It’s a sex thing. Ugh, I hate boys. I bet that’s what it is. They must be all alike. But maybe he is…

Not Daddy’s Little Girl Pt. 3

My mother was furious! We called my sister, Ta’kiesha, and she was even more heated. Cursing Fred, telling me to give her his number. My protector, she was. Always has been. He didn’t answer at first then she called and he picked up. Her and my mother let him have it. After being cursed out…

Not Daddy’s Little Girl

My first time having sex was… Not ideal, at all. It didn’t feel like anything good. I heard it never does but it was way too late by then because it was over. I hated it actually. Hated the person, myself for doing it, and the whole experience was just plain stupid. Regretful? Eh. Maybe….

Bye Daniel, Hello A.R.E. Pt. 3

Talk about funny! Donald was hilarious and had a laugh that made you laugh, just because. Infectious. But that was him. He was kind, thoughtful, affectionate, and interested in shy ole me. I don’t know why talking to him made me think of my father. I secretly thought of my father whenever a male treated…

Bye Daniel, Hello A.R.E. Pt. 2

His name was Donald Brown. I remember asking Ms. Irving about him and she gave me a look. I knew why he was there but it didn’t phase me. All of those kids were drop outs or kicked out or out there because of a court order. They still needed to go to school and…
