A Wife Scorned

Looking out her bedroom window, Connie Paige inhaled deeply of her cigarette as she watched her estranged husband pull into the driveway of their home.
That’s right, little fly. Come farther into this web, she thought, taking another drag from the cancer stick in her right hand.
Smoking was yet another bad habit that Connie formed since…
Since Brice violated their eighteen-year marriage.
Greedy bastard!
He’d had everything with her. She spoiled him rotten. She thought she had spoiled him for any other woman, too, but that proved to be a lie.
Brice told Connie so many lies during his secret affair. Now she returned the favor at each encounter. And to think, she used to be such a lover of truth before he corrupted her with his betrayal.
Connie was about to lie again today…with her lips and her hips. Her kisses would all be fake. So would every thrust. She didn’t want Brice back. All she wanted was…
Revenge for him cheating on her, getting his mistress pregnant, and then openly living with the tramp, even though he wasn’t divorced yet.
Connie didn’t care that his mistress miscarried their illegitimate child just three months into the pregnancy. All she cared about was her own pain. About the humiliation she felt upon learning the truth. About the fact that she’d been a dutiful wife through all of Brice’s ups and downs. Downs which had greatly outnumbered his up times over the years.
I should have cheated when I had the chance to, Connie thought, recalling her own opportunity to have a torrid workplace affair. But no, she wanted to honor their vows more than she wanted to satisfy her flesh. Today she would satisfy his flesh one more time in hopes of finally making her revenge complete.
* * *
Connie smiled to herself as Brice sat mesmerized on the edge of the bed while she performed an exotic dance for him a few feet away. Jamie Foxx’s Overdose played in the background.
This dance was only a small part of her plan to entice him away from his mistress, get him emotionally invested in their marriage again, and then dump him cold for ever thinking he could devastate her life the way he had.
“Why didn’t you do this kind of stuff when we were still together?” Brice asked with lust dripping from his eyes like raindrops. Drool gathered in the right corner of his mouth.
Connie cringed inside at his insinuation that there had been some deficiency in her that caused him to stray when the deficiency had been in him. All Brice had to do was proclaim that he wanted a more adventuresome sex life and it would have been a done deal. Better yet, he could have taken the initiative and created more adventure instead of going outside their marriage.
Instead of replying to his question, Connie continued to move the red beads seductively over her shiny naked body. Every inch of her had been oiled to perfection to pull this bead trick off. 
Brice moved closer to touch her with large hands made callus from years of construction work.
Connie made herself not recoil at his touch. She used to love his hands upon her body once upon a time. Used to get monsoon soaked at his slightest caress.
That was then. This is now. Now she just tolerated his touch. Now only the thrill of revenge made her tropical.
Moving the beads between her legs, Connie slid them smoothly through her valley. “Hide and go seek, papi,” she said, uttering his favorite endearment as her hips continued to move hypnotically.
“Yesss…mami.” Brice moaned loudly and promptly sent a hand on a search-and-rescue mission. His fingers pulled the string of beads from their hidden place one bead at a time. More moans accompanied each new release.
Connie relished his eagerness. It made her feel one step closer to victory. Now it was time to ensure that victory.
Straddling Brice’s lap, Connie quickly protected them and then slid down his granite length.
Up, she went soon thereafter. It was time to mess with his head, literally and figuratively.
Connie practiced that sequence repeatedly until Brice’s hazel eyes started to roll to the top of his eyelids and beyond. Suddenly she thrust downward, using her inner muscles to clench at him during the descent.
He whimpered from the pleasure. “You still got it, girl.”
“Too bad this is the last time you’re going to get it,” Connie replied, clenching at him tighter during her slow circular ascent.
Brice’s eyes fought to refocus. “Huh? What?”
“You heard right. This is our last rendezvous. I’m tired of sharing you. I’ve decided to divorce you and move on with my life. It’s time for another man to get all this.” She squeezed him even tighter before slamming downward for a time of rowdy riding.
Hi-yo, Silver. Away!
It was three whole minutes before Brice could speak a coherent word. “I…I don’t want a divorce. I can’t lose you…this. I’m ready to come back home, baby,” he panted out, holding her close to him as their breathing patterns regulated.
Bingo! Connie mused triumphantly.
Unfortunately for her, the elation she thought she would feel from this victory was fleeting. She realized now that no lasting pleasure could come from degrading herself this way. No woman should have to use her body to secure the favor of a man. Especially a man that proved to be so unworthy of her time, energy, and most of all, her love.
With those realizations at the forefront of her mind, Connie disengaged them and stood to her feet. “I don’t want you back. I want me back.” Then she turned around and took liberated steps towards the bathroom for the hottest shower she could stand.
As for Brice, Connie could care less what he did or who he did it with from now on.

All Things Inspirational Interview

The Professor - Revised

Desperate to finish college, take care of her sickly little brother, and help her family out of poverty, Aurelia Bunting returns to the very thing that she hates – exotic dancing. She needs all the money she can get now after her wealthy boyfriend impregnated her best friend, provoking her to dump him.

Fresh from a bad breakup, too, Professor Baron Weaver is not so deep in grief to overlook the beautiful Virgin Island native that danced at his brother’s bachelor’s party. There’s something about this stripper that’s just so…so delectably unforgettable.

Since anonymity was crucial at events like these, Aurelia had no idea that the man she danced for was actually one of her new professors this year. If either of them had known, they would have never considered going beyond a private dance to find comfort in each other’s arms that fateful night.

Pulling Him Back - Letter To Readers

When I originally laid down the foundation for this book, it went in a totally different direction. Racie and Meak didn’t get together until near the end of the story and that was only after a horrific plane crash that he miraculously survived. However, during the revision process, all of those scenes got deleted and were replaced with what you see now.
I realized that keeping them apart for so long was pointless and made the story drag. This story took the longest time to finish as it was due to all the other demands in my life, one of which was completing graduate school.
Note to self: Never try to write another LIVE story with that much schoolwork on your plate. *smile*  
There are many themes at work within this story. Among them are sowing and reaping, how justice is meted out directly and indirectly, and how important it is to protect our children from pedophiles. Some ways to safeguard our children include:
·         Keeping the lines of communication open,
·         Becoming more involved in their activities,
·         Stop using social groups/places as babysitters,
·         Getting to know the people that have direct interaction with our kids.
On another more lighter note, since this story was mainly about how one woman kept a man coming back for more, I’ve included some things that made Racie unforgettable below:  
·         She cooked like a champ,
·         She was open to creativity in the bedroom,
·         Her feistiness and independent nature,
·         She didn’t cater to Meak’s ego,
·         She didn’t let him get away with bad behavior,
·         She challenged him to step up his game as a man,
·         She was a great listener,
·         She set good examples as a true giver and as a great friend.
If you notice, none of the things mentioned involve Racie’s physical appearance. Yes, men are visual creatures and thus will be attracted to any woman that turns them on, so please keep yourselves up to the best of your ability. However, the things that seem to keep a man coming back long after a woman’s looks fade are the things that come from within. I hope you receive that positive message along with so many others featured in Pulling Him Back.
Thanks for reading along with me!
