F
ate
’s shadow
hovered over me
the moment I
emerged from the
protection of my mother’s womb
and drew my first breath
.
I was an innocent
child
and did not understand
;
the shadow of fate
i
s
also known by a different name, destiny
. I learned this when I grew into a man.’

CHAPTER ONE

God’s
weather some called it
; w
arm with an occasional breeze
that
caused leaves to
sway under its gentle touch. Open windows signified
there was
an oppressive heat
creeping
in as
mid-summer
approached. In apar
tment 4C
of
the Brooklyn
housing project
,
Marvin Gaye’s s
ultry
voice
filtered
below
to
the
courtyard
. The warmth brought happy children frolicking about as their
parents sat on weathered
b
enches
with
attentive
eye
s
, their legs ready
to spring at any s
ound of gun
fire.

B
eneath the shade of building 533
sat a pair of
elderly
inhabitants
. They watched
the boisterous activity with loquacious detachment.
Today they
enjoyed the beautiful summer afternoon
perched atop their cracked wooden seats
sharing gin from a soda bottle
.

You
playin

the number?”
The gray-hair man Slim asked his companion.

“Done
played
already,” Henry replied between a gulp of
liquor concealed in the
Sprite bottle.

“Heard some lady up there hit t
he big one,”
Slim’s
raspy voice announced. His sleeveless brown arm
pointed to the west side of the building.

This information piqued Henry’s curiosity, “The Mega?”

“Um-hum, the one last week for hundred million,” Slim replied.

“Oh
-boy, ‘
aint
that something, if I won
so
much money I’d be long gone!”


F
a’sure
,
” Slim
agreed.


Aint
that simple though
they
gotta
’ wait for them lottery people to cut
the
check.


They
probably
consultin

with a lawyer or something.” Henry said thoughtfully.

“Hope they ‘
aint
on welfare or
nuthin
‘-cause welfare
gonna
‘ want
their money back.

Henry laughed displaying stained and missing teeth, “
L
ike th
e actor in all them
action
flicks
.”

Slim bowed his head thinking. He could not recall the name, yet he
saw the actor’s face in his mind,
“Yeah, ‘
aint
that
somethin
!”
He
finally replied.

“That boy shouldn’t have to pay his mama’s debt,” Henry said with a drunken lisp.
He
suddenly became inspired at the chance of winning the lottery
and
searched his
p
ocket
s for spare change. He
pulled out two dollars. It wasn’t just a dollar and a dream anymore, but a dollar and a possibility.
Henry tucked
the
bottle protectively under his
armpit
and scurried to a nearby bodega leaving his friend sitting alone
.

S
elange
Brown
walked around
the
small bedroom eyeing boxes stacked against the faded purple walls. She inhaled angrily. The
nerve of her mother
to box her stuff
wh
en
she
w
ent out
after
s
he’d told her she’d
do it
. As always, her mother’s impatience prevailed.

Maaa
!”
S
elange
shrieked.

Darlene Brown
appeared in the doorway
. Her
usually smooth
face creased
with worry
lines
,
“What
’s wrong, everything okay honey
?”


I said I
’ll pack my
things when I
came home

you
didn’t
label the boxes, how can I find anything
?
” Selange
complained as she
opened one of the flaps to a box atop the dresser and peered inside, “
W
here
’s
my laptop?

“Someone
needed to get things done
.
The movers
are coming in the morning
, besides if you take the time to look
,
you’ll see your laptop is right over there under those
papers on your
messy
desk
.”

The beautiful young woman
glared a
t her mom, sometimes
she was
i
mpossible!


Me and Al
were
working
hard
all day and we’re tired
. N
ow
stop with the dramatics and come get something to eat. We
ordered
Chinese, it’s your
favorite.”

“Al has no business in my room.
I’m not a little kid mom, I
need privacy
.

S
he
whined.

Arms akimbo, Darlene sighed, “Are you done?”

Selange’s pouty lips tugged down at the corner
. The action
caus
ed
a deeper indenta
t
ion
on
her dimpled cheek.
She was tired and angry
. H
er mom and gigolo
boyfriend
had
encroach
ed
on her private space
.
What’s worse,
t
he smooth player was
moving
into
their new home on Long Island.
Frankly,
Selange
preferred he stayed
away from her mo
m
and moved on to some other desperately lonely woman.

I’m
going to
Shanda’s
house;
you guys
knock yourselves out
!
