Yesterday at school a group of girls saw me talking with Lance and went berserk. As soon as he left, they started in on me. “There’s no way he’s into you—an ugly girl with glasses.” “Maybe it’s jungle fever.” “Stick with your own.”
I wonder what they’d say if they knew that I was here on the top floor of this condo building making love with Colton, Lance’s gorgeous older brother. They’d be green with envy. He could have any woman he wants but he wants me–the “ugly” black girl with glasses. Life’s full of surprises, isn’t it?
