Guess Who's Engaged!

I know my personality better than most but when I was asked the big question... well I turned into that little girl that had so many big dreams about how her wedding would be. Darius and I have been together for a while. We have had more than our share of ups and downs, needless to say the majority have been because of me or a particular way I have behaved in the past. So here I am.... 35 years old and finally getting ready to take the plunge. I feel like I'm in my early twenties and starting college... those were the days!!!! I don't know what lies ahead but I have made a promise to myself to be a better person. I know that in marriage, there is no "I", "You" or "Me". There is only "Us" or "We". I won't go into the statistics on marriage and divorce. I refuse to go into this thing and thinking about how it will end. Perhaps it will be a forever type thing. I'm sure that my parents thought and felt the same things that Darius and I are feeling. Sadly though, they got divorced my sophomore year in college. Still, I won't let my faith be shaken. I'm marrying a loving, kind and understanding man. He's the type of man that a woman like me needs. I'm always busy... always on the go but I have to agree that the thought of having someone to come home to really excites me. More than anything, I want kids. Please God give me a set of healthy twins! Please forgive me if every now and then, I write something mushy, cute, wild or unnerving. I've never been into wearing my heart or feelings on my sleeve but the prospect of a happily ever after will change even the most independent woman. I've decided to dash aside my pride and become that blushing bride.

The Era of the Gentleman (Part Two)

One can not choose a time or a place where a man makes the conscious decision to stop taking a woman's feelings and/or safety into consideration. I think that it starts with the way that the said man was raised. What kind of life did he lead? How did his parents treat him? How did his father treat his mother? How did his mother treat him? How did she conduct herself? There are so many things to take into consideration when trying to solve something so mysterious. Ultimately, I believe that it goes back to the way his father treated his mother and sisters. Typically, if a child witnesses the correct way to love, respect and cherish his mother and sisters, he will generally carry that knowledge on into adulthood. The opposite is also true. If a child, be it male or female, caries childhood experiences into adulthood.
PRIME EXAMPLE:
*Johnny was three years old when he started to notice his mother crying after being locked away in the room with his father. This was something that he didn't understand but it made him sad whenever he saw his mother in tears. As the years went on, Johnny noticed that that his mother was crying more, his parents were no longer arguing in hushed tones. Johnny could hear them arguing about everything such as money, paying bills and accusations from his mother that his father was cheating. When Johnny was fifteen, he witnessed his father hit his mother and knock her to the floor. His father left his mother lying there, grabbed his car keys and left the house. Johnny helped his mother to her feet. He grabbed tissue from the bathroom to dry her eyes. Several times after that incident, Johnny asked his mother why she let his dad treat her that way. She'd told him that his father was going through something but he loved both of them very much. Johnny didn't know how mistreating a person could mean love. Over the next few years, Johnny witnesses more and more violent incidents. He tried stepping in several times, but each time, his mother and father ended up upset with him. His father would threatened to hit him. His mother would jump in the way and beg and plead with the man to not touch their baby. Johnny couldn't believe what was playing out before his eyes. Later, his mother would yell at him about provoking his father and claimed that Johnny was only causing more stress for his father. Johnny could understand why she was making up excuses for the beatings that she received from his father. After this, Johnny could barely look at his mother. He wandered why she would put aside her self respect and simply allow his father, a man he had no more love for, treat her like trash. Why she had allowed herself to become a punching bag was beyond Johnny. He wished that his parents would just sit down and talk about their problems instead of fighting all the time. When Johnny turned eighteen, he moved out of his parent's home. Two years later, he was in college and having problems with his girlfriend. They were sitting in his car and he found himself so angry at her words that he hit her. The both of them were shocked at his actions. His girlfriend left him after that. She'd said that she refused to be with a man that handled his problems with a fist. Johnny had two options: get help for his anger issues or continue down the same destructive path like his father before him. Johnny watched her wipe away her tears as she walked back to her dorm. He thought about his mother and how she had taken beatings from his father for more years than he cared to remember. Sure, Rachel had been good to him but at the end of the day, in his mind, b!t%*$ came a dime a dozen. If she couldn't handle the man that he was, then f%^k her.
I'm not saying that Johnny's experiences are typical. It's only an example. But if a child grows up in violence than he has only two choices. He could become a product of that violence or rise above it all. In the beginning, Johnny was confused about the relationship between his parents, after that, he wanted to protect his mother from the violence. In the end, because his mother let her child witness her constant sacrifice of her self-worth, her son went on to think of women as nothing more than a ship passing in the night, as they come and go.

*Johnny is a fictional character and his life experiences are also fictional.

The Era of the Gentleman has Ended (Part One)

The Era of the Gentleman has officially ended and chivalry is dead. The men in today's society no longer value women as their predecessors did. It's a strange and hurtful thing to say but it's true. Here is a prime example: The Elusive Dating Site. A man generally joins a dating site for "friendship then maybe more". Women are more upfront about their reasons for joining the site and what they want. They take their time filling out the profile information and even completing the compatibility questions. I'm not saying that there aren't men that are just as meticulous but they aren't usually on dating sites. When the man and the woman come across each other's profile and decide to chat, they eventually exchange phone numbers. They may talk and text for a week or two then decide that they want to meet. Out of nowhere, the man will suggests that the woman should come to him. This is interesting because usually, during "courtship" a man is courting a woman, comes to her home and meets her relatives then awaits approval from the family. I understand that times have changed but men have made a complete 360. Back to the example... the woman asks the man why he can't come to her and he gives her a long list of excuses. The woman then decides that he's not someone that she wants in her life. She heads back to the site only to experience the same situation over and over again. She comes across one man that is willing to come to her or at least meet her, but he confronts her, asking if they have dinner and see a movie, if he has to pay for everything. The woman is shocked and decides to leave this particular dating site. After joining another dating site, she finds that the men there are no different. She decides that online dating isn't for her.
Example Two: The same woman decides to frequent places that she knows that single men frequent (grocery stories, laundromats, libraries, sporting events and parties). She meets a man at the laundromat and they hit it off. After a few weeks, things are going well. Suddenly, the man starts asking her for money, gifts and help on his bills. She decides to help him because thinks that this is only a one-time thing. Before she knows it, he's given up him home and moved in with her. She's essentially working to take care of him. How could men have changed so much in such a short period of time? What would cause a man to give up his manhood and let a woman take the reigns? There are so many questions... follow my new series, The Era of the Gentleman, for answers!

Free Read Alert!

Halloween is fast approaching and I'm feeling inspired. It's a time for chills and thrills as well as celebration in my home. My baby sister was born on Halloween. She has mixed emotions about it but I love it. It's all the more reason to get into the holiday. For that reason alone, I would like to present a free chapter of Dark Forest: Beware of Nightfall. Enjoy the read!

Dark Forest: Beware of Night Fall
By Veronica L. Anderson

Chapter One

“Artez, I don’t see why we have to go all the way to the woods to spend quality time together.” Nina said frustrated at the situation. She was not one to go roughing it for no good reason. “For the last time, we are not going to be in the woods. We’re going to be in a cabin.” Artez said as he turned onto Byvine Road, which would take them straight to his parent’s cabin. It had been a long time since he’d spent time at the cabin. He hoped that being there again wouldn’t dredge up memories of what he’d seen that night as a kid. He was older now and he knew that what he’d seen that night must have been a bad dream. No one else had seen a thing but on some level, he believed what he’d seen, still he knew it couldn’t be true, couldn’t have been real.
“Oh! This is your parent’s cabin? It’s nice.” Nina said as the cabin came into view. The cabin was more than what she’d expected. It was beautiful. It reminded Nina of something she’d seen in a movie. The cabin sat nestled among the trees, it was a two story structure, fashioned in deep wine-colored wood. Nina guessed that it was a sort of red wood. There was a porch with two rocking chairs and a small dining table that sat between. She imagined Artez’s parents sitting there watching the sun set. Would she and Artez do that same thing some day? She hopped out of the car. She could barely wait to see the interior of the cabin.
“Do you like it?” Artez asked as he unloaded their supplies. “I love it! Where are the keys?” Nina asked while heading towards the cabin door. Artez laughed as he stepped around her and pushed the door open. “It’s not locked. I came up yesterday to make sure everything was ready.” “Ready for what, Tez?” Nina asked as she stepped across the threshold. “For us baby.” Nina was in awe. The place was magnificent. The walls were shiny and covered with pictures of men and dogs in various hunting scenes. Flowers were everywhere. The furnishings were like nothing she had ever seen before. There was a large fireplace with wood stacked neatly inside. A beautiful rug covered the center of the floor. An antique looking coffee table sat atop of it. A smaller rug, matching the other, lay in front of the fireplace. For a brief moment, she pictured her and Artez lying there in front of a roaring fire. Above the fireplace were pictures of Artez and his family. Nina walked closer for an inspection of the pictures. One picture in particular caught her eye. Artez was sitting in a chair looking out the window at the forest. “What were you looking at?” Nina asked as Artez carried their groceries into the kitchen. “What are you talking about?” he called from the kitchen. Nina picked up the picture and carried it into the kitchen. “Here, in the picture, what were you looking at?” she asked again. Artez took the picture and looked at it for a moment. “Don’t remember. I was a kid. Who knows what I was looking at?” Artez said as he carried the picture back to the living room.
Nina watched him for a moment and let her attention turn to the kitchen. It was nice. There was a small fridge and a stove. The cabinets as well as the table and chairs looked as if they’d been handcrafted. “Tez, where did you all get this rustic looking furniture?” “We didn’t buy it, if that’s what you’re asking. My grandfather and great-uncle built this place. They made all the furniture too!” he explained as he wrapped her in a hug. “I thought I wouldn’t like it here baby, but it’s nice! Different! But still nice.” “Oh is that so! Just wait until you see the upstairs rooms!” Artez said as she led her back into the living room. “But first, let’s take a look around outside.” “Is there a place where we can swim?” Nina asked with a grin. “Sure! We can go there later. I want to show this trail that my family and I used to use a lot when I was a kid.” “Where is it?” “Not far baby! Remember that we came up here to enjoy ourselves and to spend time together. You know I’ll be leaving soon for college. Baby, we need this time together.” Artez smiled down at her. “I know you’re leaving. It’s all I ever think about. When you got that athletic scholarship, I was happy and sad at the same time. I thought I was going to lose you to some cheerleader type.” “You thought that? Nina, you know that there’s no one else for me. I love you baby. You’re my soul-mate. That’s what this weekend is about baby. I want us to strengthen our bond.” Artez explained as he knelt down and kissed her.
