25 Apr The Trouble With Us
“Love is bull****.”
That’s how blogger, Bianca Bailey begins the first post of what’s supposed to be a new series on her website, in response to her readers curiosity about her feelings on love. That post never makes it to the public eye, but those three words perfectly sum up Bianca’s outlook, and rule the way she interacts with the men around her — including Rashad.
Rashad isn’t interested in anything serious either, but for a different reason. Rashad loves women, and women love him, but he’s avoiding trouble — the nickname his father uses for the kind of woman that makes you forget all others exist. He’s young, he’s handsome, and his photography career is right at the point of taking off. Settle down for what?
Although their relationship is contentious at first, their mutual attraction isn’t something that can be ignored, or denied. Disdain on one end, and unshakeable curiosity on the other, develop into an unconventional relationship where they get the benefits of companionship without the trouble of love.
One thinks they can keep it casual, the other is looking for an opportunity to take it further. Neither of them expects to “catch feelings”… let alone find themselves considering the “L” word.
