Chapter 1 She was 5’4” tall, 175 lbs.

Her skin was the color of milk chocolate and as smooth a s silk. She had pretty brown eyes and long black curly hair. She had a curvy fig ure. She was a very beautiful woman, but she thought otherwise. “Why would any guy want me?,” she thought. “I’m not prety at all. No guy will ever love me.” She stook in front of the mirrow looking at her body, criticizing herself. She sighed, walked away from the mirror and decided to call her best friend, Jaden. “Hey,” she said with sadness in her voice. “What’s wrong, Cocoa?” That’s the nickname Jaden liked to call her. Her real name was Destiny. “Nothing,” she said. “Its not important.” “D estiny, it is important to me because you are important to me. Now please tell m e what’s wrong. But Destiny couldn’t tell him what’s wrong. She couldn’t tell him that s he was in love with him and that she wanted to be with him forever. She especial l couldn’t tell him that since he already had a girlfriend. She wanted to confess her feelings for him so bad but she couldn’t. When she didn’t say anything, Jaden said, “You need to get out of the house. Come ov er and chill with me. We can sit and talk and relax.” Destiny starts to protest. “Bu t…” but Jaden says, “Come on, Cocoa. It would be a chance for both of us to relax and fave fun.” His girlfriend had been out of town for over a month so he had been hom e alone and bored. She thought about it for a minute and said, “I don’t have anythin g to do today so why not? Give me 2 hours and I’ll be there. You want me to stop a nd get something for us to eat on my way there?” “No,” said Jaden. “I got that covered.” “Ok. I’ll see you when I get there. Love you, Jade, aid Destiny. “Love you too, Cocoa.” He hung up the phone. “Destiny just doesn’t know how much I really mean that,” Jaden thought. Jaden loved Destiny with all his heart. He had wanted her to be his since the first day he layed eyed on her. They first met in high school, in 10th grade, in math class. She was sitting in the corner across the room, looking so beautiful, yet so sad. He admired her bea uty for a minute before walking across the room, sitting at the desk beside her, and saying “Why is such a beautiful goddess looking so sad?” Destiny looked up at h im and Jaden noticed that she had the most beautiful brown eyes he’s ever seen. Th ey sparkled in the light and he could see a hint of surprise in them. Before he could compliment them, however, she averted her eyes, surveying the room, lookin g. “I’m sorry. You must be mistaken. I don’t see a goddes here,” she told him before mak ing eye contact one again. He smiled and said, “I see one right here in front of m e and she is amazingly beautiful.” He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear befor e saying, “I’m Jaden. What’s your name, beautiful?” She blushed as she felt the touch of his fingers as he brushed them against her cheek. “My name is Destiny,” she said, a nd he noticed that she had a bit of an accent. Jaden snapped out of his daydream and focused on the task at hand. He had to cle an up, cook, take a shower, and get ready before Destiny got there.
