Black Love

It's absolutely perfect that February is the month of love AND of celebrating black history. Another month-long excuse to love yourself and another beautiful afro-god(dess) spiritually, physically, and honestly. Never mind that February is the shortest month. It's about the quality of time spent, not the quantity.
As for me, I plan on a trip to the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center in Fort Lauderdale. After (or before) that I will watch When Night is Falling (my new copy on DVD!) at least once more, and then take myself off to the spa for a day of self-appreciation.
Ah, black love!

From the upcoming novel Desire at Dawn
She tasted like fresh baked bread. Like the flavors from Kylie’s human life that had meant so much, that once made her tongue dance and wet itself and beg.

Kylie sniffed the woman cautiously, took her passive fear into her nose, ran her hands over the fear-stilled flesh. Bread and cheese, melting. Hm.
She tasted good. Like sitting on the front stoop waiting for her mother to come home while rain fell in lazy droplets ready to wash Naomi’s city smells away.

The woman stirred in Kylie’s arms. Twin red pinpricks dotted the curve of her throat. “Are you finished with me?” Her voice was fearful but excitement danced just beneath the words.
Kylie turned to see who had negated her although she already knew who had spoken. Silvija. Just a few feet away, barely sheltered by the trees in the woman’s front yard, she stood just behind Kylie’s mother. She was tall and fearsome while Belle, Kylie’s mother, was graceful and small, a gazelle waiting to run.
“No,” Kylie said again. “I am not finished with her.”
In her arms, the woman moaned softly and clung.
Silvija laughed. “Rebellion must run in the family.”
The look she leveled on Kylie was not amused. It was her first and last warning.

Hola, Fiona!

Gracias por la informacion sobre "February 23, 2010."

Enjoyed the excerpt on Kylie and the ladies! Your writing is deliciously minimal and as usual refreshingly sensual, charming, enticing, as is your inimitable style.

Loved how tasting her was compared to fresh baked bread. That little Kylie promises to be a handful for Silvija, perhaps just what she needs. Did she love the fight out of Belle?

Enjoyed the sight of the picture you found to accompany the blog entry for Black Love. So grown and sexy yet little girl adorable, peeking into the cleavage, for treats!

You've got us spellbound again, my friend. So bring it on...
