Tennessee Heat Chapter 1

This entry is part 1 of 15 in the series Tennessee Heat
Even their mother had been kind to her the times they’d met. And besides, there was no guarantee that Chase would even be there. At twenty-seven it had been some time since he’d lived at home. But somehow he always managed to show up whenever Annabelle was around.

She ignored Lisa and enjoyed the last of her melting pistachio cone. There was another reason she wasn’t exactly in the mood for a party where she was sure to run into more of her high school friends. While the rest of them would be heading off to college in a few weeks, she had to take a year off. She’d done well enough to earn a scholarship, but it wasn’t a full ride. The counselor had been kind enough to work with her so she could save enough money to enroll in the spring. Luckily she’d been in a program that allowed her to earn college credit while still in high school so she wouldn’t be too far behind when and if she finally did make it.

It seemed that her hesitance about the party freed Lisa up to act the damn fool. She prattled on and on about the new outfit she’d bought just for the occasion, and how much it cost and blah-blah-blah. Annabelle knew it was all for her benefit. Everyone knew she could never afford anything new.  Her only relative since her dad bounced years ago, was her mom, who could never hold down a job on account of her drinking problem. And whatever money Annabelle made at the grocery store she’d been working at since she was fifteen went into savings for college, when she wasn’t using it to pay bills that her mother had forgotten. It wasn’t long before she grew tired of listening to the snooty bullshit and when her nerves were frayed to the point of breaking, she said her goodbyes and headed for the trolley to take her back downtown. 

Of course the others headed in the opposite direction to their cars that were parked around the corner. It only took five minutes for the loneliness to kick in, but that was nothing new. All the way home she ignored the licentious looks from leering men and the glares from their women. She couldn’t for the life of her figure out what the hell they found so appealing.  She was hot and sticky and no doubt had ice cream somewhere on her face she was sure. She had no idea that it was her eyes, the shape and even the look in them, that held men enthralled. She wasn’t a complete dolt, but she really had no idea of her appeal. Other less awe-inspiring aspects of her life pretty much overshadowed any pleasure she might’ve found in her natural good looks. 

But even if she were unaware of her charms, no one around her ever was. If her eyes didn’t draw them in, then her wide mouth with the beauty mark sitting pretty at the corner of her top lip did. Not to mention her voluptuous figure.
