A TURN OF EVENTS:
Angel and Olivia had just finished going over some last minute details for the grand opening and were sitting in her office.
“So, how are you doing with all of this?” Olivia asked, twirling a pen between her fingers.
Angel puckered her lips and a thoughtful look came across her face as she squinted her eyes. “I guess I’m coming along alright. My mom wants me to try to contact Black again, but on Bria’s advice, I won’t do it. And thank you for allowing her to represent me on this thing. I just can’t believe that after all this time, Kianna wants to pull this stunt.”
Olivia shook her head and chose her words carefully before she spoke. “I know that you’re angry with everything that’s going on right now, and you have a right to be. But I want you to stay filled with peace throughout this ordeal. Don’t let the enemy steal your joy again. You do know this attack against us is nothing but the devil? He’s mad, because the thing that he meant for your bad, God is turning it around for your good. Do you remember just a few months ago when I told you that discovering your husband was messing with Kianna would be the best thing that happened to you?”
Angel shook her head, yes.
“Well, Angel…I was right. If either of them continues down the road they’re going, nothing good will come of it. You have received a better position than the one you had before. You’re preparing to be trained as a salon manager; you’ve moved out of your mom’s place back on your own. You’re taking college courses on the road to your dreams. And you have a young man who seems to care about you deeply,” Olivia said, referring to Alex.
“I understand, Olivia, but I don’t have the money for a lawsuit,” Angel stated with a firm shake of her head. Leaning back against the black leather couch across from Olivia’s desk, she rolled her eyes up to the ceiling and blew out a breath.
“You don’t need money for that. Bria is doing this pro bono. And as for the rest of it, I want you to stand on faith. Angel, you have to find your way back to God. That’s the only way you will make it through the attacks you encounter in life. Pray, stay in the faith, and trust Him when you can’t trust nothing else.” Olivia’s forehead was wrinkled in a frown. She understood this young girl had been through a lot, but she also knew that God had great things in store for her, if she would just try Him.
