fiction. short story. monologue.
not all women get to live pretty lives.
Life is not what La’nia thought it would be, she is not financially free, sexually pleased, nor a professional writer, and she definitely isn’t thin with silky, manageable hair, and her nails are always dirty… everything she dreamed: femininity, strength, and beauty is still just a dream. A figment of her mind. An aspiration runs dry.
