Saturday Shorts: The Cougar Chronicles

I am instituting “Saturday Shorts” on my blog. Saturday Shorts are short stories or sections of novels I am writing which I will post once a month, on the first Saturday. These are fun writing exercises that I do to keep myself writing. Who knows? I may end up blogging an entire book and then compiling and publishing it. Whatever happens, know that Saturday Shorts are meant to inspire the writers who read this blog to keep writing, and to give my blog readers something fun to read. Anything posted under Saturday Shorts is a first draft copy — no editing has been done to look for grammar, sentence structure, voice, or any of the other trappings of formal prose. Enjoy Saturday Shorts! I certainly enjoy writing them…

The Cougar Chronicles is my attempt at romance novel writing. Please note: this work may contain expletives and sexual content.

THE COUGAR CHRONICLES

Preface

     Laila awakened slowly. She wasn’t quite sure where she was. Plush king size bed. Silk sheets gently caressing her voluptuous curves. Sensual night gown gracing her bosom and hips. Her creamy caramel skin complementing the almond sheets and bedspread… Laila last remembered being at Pree’s Place and being re-introduced to Tee’s brother Shaheed, who had just arrived back in town after graduating from medical school in Tennessee. Groggy, she sleepily rubbed her eyes and realized that her memories were of a time two months ago when Laila and Shaheed met again — this time as adults. Sixty days later and Laila finds herself and integral part of Shaheed’s life and dreams. Her concern is not the whirlwind relationship; Laila is concerned with the age difference and the squawk they receive because of it. She’s a 45 year old Cougar-Diva and her new man is a mere baby at 25…

     Tee and Laila have been besties for years. Twenty to be exact… They met in college and hit it off — been friends ever since. Laila is Tee’s President of Marketing for Pree’s Place, Tee’s verbal venue and hangout. When they met, Shaheed was just turning 5 — Laila helped Tee and her mom plan his birthday party. What a crazy turn of events to be bedding the very man Laila once cared for as a child! But the baby was no more… Strong, black, independent brother making a good living and an excellent name for himself. Waking up nearly every morning with the hottest cougar this side of the DMV in his arms, in his bed. Make no mistake — Laila is a hot commodity in Lochern. She may be 45. She may be considered a cougar. But no other diva in the DMV can touch Laila’s style, class, and total package. Banging body. Beautiful all natural locs that cascade down her back and caress the curves of her ass. Creamy caramel skin and light brown eyes. She has all the ingredients to be classified as the baddest dime in all of DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

     Shaheed is no slouch himself. Tall, light brown skin and eyes. Bald head and full beard. Not only is the man handsome and confident, but he’s paid as well. Shaheed became the new Medical Director for the Hopkins Children’s Center upon completing his first year rotations. Graduating Summa Cum Laude from medical school and bee lining it back to Maryland to work for the Johns Hopkins system — one of the world’s leading medical systems and certainly the most widely known and respected health system in the DC/Maryland/Virginia corridor — Shaheed has set his career and personal goals high and is striving to achieve what he’s set out to do. And part of Shaheed’s goals are to make Laila his lifetime partner and wife…

     But the village just isn’t having it. Rumors and accusations surround their relationship. Hoochies constantly throwing themselves at Shaheed telling him he’s missing out by dining on 40 year old pussy instead of the young and sweet nectar they claim to provide at 20. The bitches have gone as far as to schedule doctor’s visits for their children, showing up scantily clad and being very forward and suggestive. The DMV doesn’t want to see Shaheed marry the woman of his dreams simply because she’s 20 years his senior. DMV divas don’t want to see this union happen — they want Shaheed for themselves.

     And then there’s Rodney…
