Here is a short sample from the book:
Later that evening, Alty was in Jackson, five miles from Keswick. He was at Cindy Reid’s house. She had a one-year- old son, Demar, but he was sleeping in his crib. He had met her at a party over there in August. She was a medium sized girl of Indian descent and was three years older than him. They had danced together and had hit off from that first meeting.
They were sitting in her living room on couches, opposite each other.
“Where is your baby father now?”
“We’re no longer together. He wasn’t giving me any money for my son, so I told him to leave me alone.”
“I’m in a worse position than him. I told you that I was still in school. So, I won’t be able to help you.”
“But you told me that you were twenty years of age. Are you going to college or the university?”
He tried to hide his embarrassment.
“No, it’s Keswick High school. I started school very late. I’m a slow learner.”
“If I didn’t like you, I wouldn’t bother. You’re just three years younger than me and still in high school. How many of the girls in your class are you going to bed with?”
“I only have one girlfriend.”
“Are you sure about that? I heard that you guys use Miss Georgette’s hotel at all times of the day.”
“She won’t admit any students during school time.”
She told him that she was in need of some good loving and she like what he did to her in bed.
Alty had learned his lovemaking skills from an older female neighbor. Miss Precious had taken him under her wings and taught him all that a man needed to do to satisfy a woman in bed.
Most of the girls, especially the older ones at the school had heard about his lovemaking skills. Some of them like Darlene, were eager to try him out. Others were not too keen as women only went to bed with men they liked. Many of them felt that he was a show off type of guy.
He had begun sleeping with Cindy from the time they first met. She didn’t mind him not having any money. She was a junior teacher at Jackson Primary school.
“Alty, where did you learn all these things from?” she asked him the next morning. Last night she had climaxed twice and he still wanted more. She had to tell him that she wanted to sleep.
He told her about Miss Precious and what she had taught him about sex.
He had taken her twice this morning. She was loving his stamina in bed. After she and her baby’s father had broken up, a few guys had come around. None of them had Alty’s stamina, so Cindy chose him as her new lover.
Alty was in his last year of high school when she became pregnant with her second child and his first. He didn’t let Darlene know that a woman was pregnant for him.
Carla Newby and her boyfriend, Dex were going at it in her bedroom in Jackson, five miles away from Keswick. It was about eleven o’clock that night. Outside it was slightly drizzling.
“Dex, slow down and take your time. I want you to stay long inside of me so that I can get to enjoy it some more.”
Carla’s man, Fred, was away on the farm work program in the United States. This had been for the past four years. Whenever he was away now, she always got a man to fill her bed. She had been afraid the first time he went away, but her friend, Jacinth, had told her that she did it every time, her man, Rory was away.
The second year he was away she had used Delton, but he too had gone on the farm work program. Dex, was available, so she had used him.
“Oh, God, Dex,” she cried. “You feel so big inside of me.”
Dex laughed, from as far as he could remember, women were telling him about how big he was.
As Carla’s climax neared, she started hitting him in his back. Finally, she climaxed, screaming and digging her nails into his back as she rode out the waves. He waited for her climax to subside before he started thrusting into her again, finally releasing his load into her.
He rolled off her and the two of them took a short nap. As Carla watched him sleeping, she thought about her life. She had made sure that he used a condom on her. She knew that before Fred returned, she had to get rid of the stack of condoms she had. She was a cosmetologist while Dex was a plumber. When Fred is not on the farm work programme, he does masonry and carpentry work.
Dex was a tall copper colored man in his middle twenties. Carla was a woman of average height, was copper colored and was in her middle twenties also. She had two children, a boy and girl with Fred. Dex had two boys with his baby mother.
Sometimes if Dex wasn’t available, she would go down to Hopeton’s house. That was if she felt in need of some good love making. He would cook for her and after they had taken a bath, he would give her, her full dose of sex.
