Beauty Is Her Name
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Well Beauty “B” Ray is beautiful inside and out. Beauty is an honor student, a daughter, a mother, wife, sister, and best friend. Beauty has always been a good girl. She always was an overachiever in everything that she did. B was always the popular girl, but didn’t like the crowds. Her best friend, Kameo, is B’s rock in life. When you see one, you always see the other. Beauty and Kameo attend college together. On Beauty’s 21st birthday, life as she knew would be changed forever. Beauty must choose between the happiness of people she cares for the most or her own happiness. Beauty wants everyone to get along and coincide, but no one wants to make that wish come true for her. No matter how much they claim to love Beauty, they can never seem to get along enough to tolerate each other. This puts Beauty in a battle that she was trained for. Beauty knows she can’t sit on the fence between the two groups fighting for her time and love. Which side will Beauty choose? Will she agree with her parents or the love of her life? This is part one of a short story about Beauty Ray and her trials and tribulations in being an independent adult.
