Happy Thursday and welcome to 20 Days of Love! It's our annual blog campaign where we bring you stories of love, romance, and passion all month long! We're kicking it off with one of my favorite authors, Angelia Vernon Menchan.
I'm sure you know her, but if you don't she writes hot stories of grown women coming into their own. These women know what they want and they're not ashamed to go after it. Today, she's sharing an excerpt from Donovan's Woman! Read on and share with others...Help us get the word out about 20 Days of Love.
Anita was sitting at the table eating a sandwich when her sister walked in at midnight. She had showered and slipped into a nightgown when she realized she hadn’t eaten. Arvetta was ten years older than Anita and treated her like her daughter. Their mom died when Anita was fourteen and Arvetta twenty-four. The sisters always lived together and had the same view on men; they were good for sex and finance. Neither believed in marriage. Arvetta lost two pregnancies and afterwards focused on her career. She worked eleven am to eleven pm three days and was off three days. She did the cooking and Anita cleaned, her shift was six am to two thirty, Sunday through Thursday.
“You home early.” Arvetta said, dropping in a chair across from her sister.
“I am. I had an interesting evening.” She told her sister about Donovan.
“Be careful, those Vanes are so saditty. The mama and those high yellow sisters. They’re all teachers and think their shit don’t stink. If their mama hadn’t married old man Vane, they would be piss poor but she worked at that funeral home as a teen and got pregnant and he married her. He was forty-three and widowed and Marla nineteen. She had Betty and Barbara in two years and Donovan three years later. He sent her to college and took care of her. When he died at sixty-three she was not even forty and rich. All the kids got big degrees and look down their noses at everyone. I’m not sure about him, but those hoity toity heffas, Betty and Barbara were in school with me, one and two years younger. The Mama is only fifty-four now. Girl, he’s good looking and got money and that’s that. I’m going to shower and go to bed.” Arvetta said.
Anita nodded, focusing on her sandwich. She was going forward. She had nothing to lose. Not a damn thing.
