The final book in The House of Bejeweled will be coming out next month. This #writerwednesday I'm sharing an excerpt from BeJeweled: Standing Strong. And guess what???? Angel, Black, and Kianna are back!
“You’re falling in love again. You’re falling for the circumstances, Angel. You want to heal him and your heart is breaking with what he’s going through. You’re reminiscing about why you fell in love with him in the first place. This isn’t good, baby and you need to take a break for a while,” Marsha advised.
Angel laughed and stood. She paced back and forth in front of the bench. “You’re confusing my dedication and loyalty to him as the father of my son, for me falling in love with him. I’m not falling in love with Black again, Marsha.”
“You told him you still love him,” Marsha disputed.
Angel remained silent as she recalled the conversation she had just had with Black.
“How much of that did you hear?” Angel asked.
“Enough. Enough to know you need to guard your heart and keep living your life. Look, Terrence is my son. But I love you, too, and I only want what’s best for you. I don’t want to see you hurt again or my grandbaby go through the pain he went through when you and Terrence broke up. He’s at a crucial stage right now. If you two were to get back together, he’d be excited to see his parents together. But what would happen to him if it didn’t work out again?”
“But you’re reading too much into this,” Angel denied.
“Maybe…but just remember, just because he got shot it didn’t change who he is. Don’t forget what he took you through before. Terrence is still the same person he always was. He’s a whore…just like his daddy. Or as you young folks say, a THOT,” Marsha rebutted.
Angel laughed so hard she had to sit back down on the park bench. “Okay, Marsha, I hear you. But you got it all wrong.”
“I hope so for your heart’s sake, darling. I hope so,” Marsha proclaimed.
Angel didn’t know how long she could go on lying to herself the way she was lying to everyone else.
