What happens when you hate someone so much you end up connecting with that person?
Senator Jacob “Jay” Edwards is a force to be reckoned with. With White House aspirations and a powerful wife by his side, he could only go up. When a national tragedy puts the spotlight on him, he’ll need to make it go away as soon as possible. He has his eye on the very person to help with him that.
Briana Gooding is tired of protesting, hashtagging, and being angry whenever a case of police brutality happens. When the opportunity to put a dent into Senator Edwards political dreams occur, she moves full throttle. If he won’t listen to her speaking demands, he’ll definitely listen to her in the bedroom.
Two players in the game but only one will emerge victorious.
Power is an erotic short that deals with race relations, police brutality, and bedroom politics.
“Here’s my question, and I’m being dead serious about this,” Jay began, “what is your goal of protesting?”
Briana shook her head. “I don’t understand.”
“You’re blocking freeways, you’re in front of city hall, you’re in front of the damn RNC.” His tone had a thick smear of resentment. “What…is…your…goal?”
“Are you serious right now?” She asked. “You have no idea what our goal is?”
“No, I don’t, and that’s why I asked.” Jay countered. “I hear a lot of screaming and anger but I don’t hear a lot of action.”
“What?” Briana spat. “We want police reform. We want body cameras. We want more officer training in dealing with those who are mentally ill as well as mentally and physically disabled. When an officer is involved in a deadly shooting, there should be an automatic investigation from the DOJ. Grand juries are a joke and shouldn’t be involved in police brutality cases.” She finally felt her anger simmer down to a respectable level. “We want justice now.”
“Good,” Jay cut up his filet mignon and chewed the bite, “now, this is the time you tell me how you expect all of that is going to get accomplished by creating hashtags and blocking freeways.”
