Short Story: Excerpt from Gray Shades, I can do bad all by myself (Christine) by Denise N. Fyffe

Christine had asked herself how much worse could she do?angry-black-woman_copy

Well it seems a whole damn lot! It’s like she unleashed a dare-devil, a temptress, a darn idiot! She was very aware of the fact that she was a sensible and intelligent young woman, but somewhere that claim to fame, has temporarily flown the coup.

The past few weeks has been unbearably stressful and stress filled. You name the problem or the issue and it manifested itself in her life, like a gypsy on ecstasy. All moral conduits were forgotten and amnesia presented itself where inbred mores should.

“I disappoint myself”; Christine mutters to herself.

But as invincible as she feels sometimes, she will be the first to admit to her human failings. One of which, is that she lacks the will to curb her curiosity.

How much worse did she ask? It seems much worse.

But, a light needs soon present itself at the end of her tunnel, or this predicted rapture will surely leave her behind. In Christine’s head a voice whispers, “Mercy says no, I am not gonna let you go.”

It better not, cause here comes another patch of trouble she will have to face tomorrow.


….Stay tuned for more…
