It is a shame Emiko, Treasure, Yoni, and Twila all had to find out this way, but hey, it is every Wo (Man) for themselves, and my coins after this will be secured in the political game, babies are well taken care of. And it is all because of their daddy. Governor Malik Korsten… Scandalous, my Ass.
A Hard Truth
“Treasure Truth? What is going on with you and that Governor?”
“What are you asking me, Mother?”
“I think you know very well what the question at hand is here.”
“Well, allow me to put it where you will understand it quite well. Are you fucking that married official, or no?”
“Girl don’t play the kitty Kat games with me. I brought you into this world, and you are your father’s daughter.”
“Mom, do you have to do this now?”
“As long as it says Tessa Truth on that mortgage bill.”
“Okay, if it means that much to you. Yes, mom, I am seeing Governor Korsten.”
“But are you fucking him?”
“Yes, ma’am, every night.”
“Girl, why are you so stupid?”
“Excuse me? So, wait, I am stupid because last I checked, daddy knocked you up and skipped out with the next bitch, and you allowed it!” Smack! I loved my daughter, but she had to learn respect and quickly. “Don’t you ever in your life speak to me in that tone again. You are twenty-two years old and still don’t know that little kitty cat of yours from a hole in the wall.”
“You have no right to put your damn hands on me.”
“Say what? Heifer, you are so lucky it was just a love tap and not worse! What are you to gain from loving a married man?”
“Try a condo, mama, eh? That nice ass BMW out there in your driveway. Oh, and coins.” “Coins? Is that your worth, Treasure? Materialistic things can be bought and sold daily, and it seems to me so can you.”
“Look, I don’t have to listen to this.”
“But you will, sweetheart. I did not break my back at three jobs to put you through school to have you downgrade your worth. What you are doing is going to lead to your downfall, baby girl. You think the Lord will grant you another woman’s husband?” She tried to fight back the tears, but they flowed down her cheeks vividly. As a mother, it was my job to wipe them. “I love you, Treasure. You are my only daughter. That man is going to hurt you.”
“He’s not Daddy, Mom.”
“No, he isn’t. He’s worse, and the ride he is taking you on will crash.”
“Well, I will enjoy it in the meantime. I must go. I love you.” She tightly hugged me and left without saying another word that day. My heart ached for my child. Where have I gone wrong with her?

Get to know Vette:
What inspires you as an author?
Life is my biggest inspiration. I find the reality of being one of the biggest lessons that anyone can and will learn.
- How long have you been writing?
I have written since the age of twelve. However, my journey as an author began when I was around 27 years old. Since I am 34 now, I have learned so much that I wish I had known back then. I have no regrets, though, only higher expectations for myself.
- Tell us about Bossette Behavior and what it is you do.
Bossette Behavior LLC is a ghostwriting and literary consulting agency. I founded the company in January of 2019. I service over two hundred clients, from authors to new entrepreneurs. The leverage that Bossette has exceeded my expectations, and that is when I started its sister company Bossette Behavior Presents, an independent publishing company.
- If you could change one thing about the literary industry, what would that be?
Well, I can only speak for myself and from personal situations. I feel that African American authors need to unite more and stop seeing each other as competition. When it comes to urban fiction, we are fighting the same war. Many readers refuse to support an urban fiction author because we are not being taken seriously as a community.
- Who is your favorite author, and why?
The late Dr. Maya Angelou has always been my idol. I love her work because she not only gives us great literature; some of life’s lessons are hidden within the pages of her novel. Angelou’s autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a fantastic form of fundamental literacy. The pain and strength grab at you with every page turn.
- Do you have any regrets about becoming a published author?
I have no regrets at all. Writing saved my life, while solidifying a better future for my children.
- What is one form of advice would you give aspiring authors?
Write the story. Everyone has got a story to tell and a testimony to share. You could change or save a life.
