Jazz looked out the window and studied the moon. It was a full moon tonight. She loved full moons. They provided so much light. She loved gazing up at the dark sky just to see this big beautiful circle of love.
That’s what the moon represented to her.
It represented love.
It was perfect.
Why couldn’t people love like the moon? Bright and consistent. There was comfort in the moon. She needed to be comforted.
Many nights of loneliness plagued her. She longed for companionship after ending things with Jake. When would she have a chance at love?
She thought Jake was the one. The one man that made her realize that love was possible for her. She was a plus sized woman who never felt sexy.
Until she met Jake. He changed that. He changed her.
Her size wasn’t important. Her hips were something sexy he said often. Her thighs were magnificent he yelled whenever she complained about her chub rub. He said her stomach was gorgeous as he kissed her naked body with the moon serving as their only light when making love.
Jake had her believe that anything was possible. He helped her discover her own identity. She would always be thankful for that.
Nothing else though. He destroyed those memories when she caught him with skinny ass Melanie. That tooth picked thin woman that sashayed after him.
He lied though. Don’t most people when they are caught?
When he couldn’t convince her of his lies he actually played the victim. Can you believe it? He was such a loser.
Jake didn’t realize that he awoke a fire in her belly when they were together. The fire was real and strong. It consumed her. She became a warrior.
A warrior woman. Strong. Unstoppable.
Which is why she knew it was time to kick his lying ass to the curb. She grabbed her jacket and threw on those skin tight boyfriend jeggings and a crop top. She glossed her lips and sprayed her perfume. She looked in the mirror and realized that she looked good.
She didn’t need a Jake. She needed freedom. She needed to chase the moon. She sighed and packed up her things. Time to head out. She was going to drive with the moonlight leading her way and Nina Simone singing I Don’t Want Him Anymore.
No looking back now.
