Who doesn’t like chocolate? Simone wondered as she sat parked in her van on William street in New York. The small side street was filled with other vans that were making routine deliveries to the busy enclave. Like most streets in downtown Manhattan it was filled with too many cars in too little of a space. She was sitting in a white truck with her foot on the dashboard. It was the thrill of hunting in the big city that got her going. She could be hunting a big deal or she could be hunting data like today.
It was 11: 40, 20 minutes to go.
The meter maid had already passed by twice but Simone knew her license plate was current and it was registered as a commercial vehicle. Besides, what kind of man took a job as a meter maid. He could just keep walking his rotund self on down the block until he found some unsuspecting newbie, who didn’t know the rules in the area and didn’t have an old ticket in the window.
The reason she was here was because of man named Justin Whatley. Justin was a complete ass. A 5’10 ivy league graduate with amazing hair and a smile that had most women ready to have his child, but an ass nonetheless. He worked for the Federal Trade commission and as far as anyone could tell he couldn’t be bought. Not because he was so ethical. He couldn’t be bought because he was so narcissistic that no one had enough money to feed his over inflated ego. Of course, coming from old money helped him keep to the moral high road.
Author Bio and Links:
Being a child of divorce, I have experienced both sides of the American Family. I understand there is a loss to the family unit, that no longer has a father in it. In the face of that loss, I discovered a woman can rise to the occasion and not replace a man but offer her own strength, moral compass and guidance. In this environment a child can grow up feeling loved, accepted and ultimately successful in life.
Those experiences in my formative years have made me more aware of the women around me and the daily feats of resourcefulness and ingenuity that goes unnoticed and unacknowledged by society. My stories highlight societal issues and the ever-changing challenges women face that I’ve observed during my life.
