Redeeming Simone by Angelia Vernon Menchan
Simone Rivers was divorced three times by age forty-eight and on the cusp of New Year’s 2019 her mind filled with the memories as she sipped champagne, alone.
Husband number one was right after college, a few days in fact. She met attorney Alton Pierce when she volunteered at his firm her senior year and he was smitten by her beauty and sass, his being married notwithstanding. Simone wasn’t smitten but saw opportunities where they existed. Alton was handsome, brilliant and paid, more importantly, Mrs. Pierce was his problem. By the middle of the year he was getting divorced and Simone fully ensconced in his life.
Simone’s second husband, Miles Farmer was none of the things Alton was but he had been enamored with her since high school and had a steady income and a house. When Alton divorced her she was given couple thousand per month in child support for the child they had but nothing else. The prenuptial she signed insured that. Her desire to not work while earning an advanced degree led her to Miles. Once she graduated and received a job as a college administrator, Miles was history.
The third husband was younger, fun and games. Simone was forty, paid, her daughter was in college and Jacques Davis at thirty three was everything sexy and masculine. That was all fun and games until it wasn’t. She remembered her mom asking, “Simone, why you keep marrying? You can have a damn man without tying yourself to him or wrecking his life and yours.”
Mama was on to something. Simone thought, topping off her glass.
