COLORED WAITING ROOM

 Patricia G. Pope

For years, Alberta fought to avoid this hour of reckoning, when everything that had occurred would be reduced to front-page rhetoric and recyclable mush, but fate intervened, causing her to believe in the worst type of disease. A virus that develops, moves and settles, all in silence, “hatred.” Nothing mattered but revenge. Getting even with those whom she believed were a part of her destruction; getting even, in the most irrational method conceivable, she felt, would wipe the slate clean for her years of humiliation at TVA, and the years and years of racial discrimination others had experienced. This was her hour of self-actualization.

Excerpts from Colored Waiting Room  

The weather was cooperating and in sync with her defiance. Dark clouds were rolling in from the southwest, lightning lit the sky with colors and thunder rumbled from a far away place, daring man to object. Calmness hung over Cherokee, Tennessee, eerie and uncertain.

In a distant field, a deer stood with alert pointed ears, suspicious that something unknown was about to disturb its meal. A white 1979 Bronco patrol  vehicle  with  two  blue  globes atop, raised  dust  as it sped  down the

country dirt road. A road that once led to a farmhouse, a family and contentment, now served only as a passageway to the outer perimeter of the Cherokee Nuclear Plant.

Officer John West and Officer Steve Craig rode in silence.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

Andre Harville and Patricia G. Pope

Excerpts from Business As Usual    

Dr. Theodore Porter pressed down firmly on the gas pedal as he accelerated his 2008 Bentley Sports Coupe to 85 miles per hour and waited for that moment of relaxation to engulf him. He sank deeper into the Coupe’s EZ-Boy style driver’s seat and positioned himself ‘old school style,’ with a slight lean. He would continue to accelerate until his top speed reached 100 miles per hour. The gray Coupe resembled a streak of lightning as the sun gleamed and danced off it heavily, yet perfectly placed chrome accessories. It is the unique design that set the automobile aside from any other class. The smooth ride delivered a couple of lazy bounces and he glanced at the speedometer; 97 miles per hour. 

Three more miles per hour and he would once again experience the rush that comes with the challenges of mastering speed and wide-open space. Dr. Porter bathed in the knowledge of the artistry and design that went into this vehicle. A Jay Jay, DYNAMITE grin came over his face. He had made it! His life had all the elements that spelled happiness and success.

     The final stretch of the main road that leads to an access highway up the mountain to Claiborne Genetic Research Foundation lies just ahead.

The Bishop

Excerpts from The Bishop by Patricia G. Pope 

The officer took a deep breath. She was clearly getting frustrated, but she was trying to be compassionate about the whole thing. I wasn’t a suspect. Everyone already knew who the shooter was, they just didn’t know where he had run off to or why he would flee the scene of a crime that happened in his own home, but I did. I knew exactly where he would run to and I knew exactly why he ran. Ten years as the Bishop’s Head of Security had taught me much. And there is no facet of his life or his movements that I don’t know. Before anyone says or does anything with, for or to the Bishop, he’s going to have to answer to me first. I give the officer my best “pity party face” and her humanity gets the best of her. She looked at me and sighed.

    

     “Alright, I’ll meet you down at the hospital in about 30 minutes. We need to finish this statement as soon as possible so that I can file my report.”

    

     “No problem,” I assured her. “I understand. I’ll be at the hospital all night long. I’m not leaving him until I know that he’s ok.”
