Your Weekly Dose of Trifiling

This week we continue sharing excerpts from Linnette King's book series 'The Trifiling Chronicles'. This week's excerpt has definitely been worth the wait. Enjoy.

Meka I laid on top of my beach towel as I watched Charles and his two small daughters, Katelyn and Kylie, build sand castles. Watching a man interact with his children had to be the sexiest thing I'd ever seen and I was just happy to be a part of the family. Charles and I started dating about two years ago which was shortly after his wife, Tricey died. He's a hard working man and gentle in every way but he was having trouble balancing work and the kids. Of course we started off as friends and I would come over and comb the girls hair and get them ready for daycare but soon things took a change and I fell in love. When I looked up, I saw a bit of sadness in Charles' eyes but he didn't say anything so I waved and walked away. There was no feeling worse than loving someone you couldn't fully have. I hopped in my car and drove home. As soon as I pulled up and saw two cars in my driveway I sighed heavily as I tried to calm my nerves before I went inside. I've been in a relationship with Terrence for the last 6 years but with him, if it's not one thing then it's definitely another and I'm honestly tired of being here especially when I already have Charles. I walked in the house and the strong smell of loud filled my nostrils immediately and I got aggravated. Terrence and Derrick sat in the living room smoking and playing NBALIVE without a care in the world. I just wished that Terrence would put as much energy into finding a job as he does into trying to win. I shook my head and walked into the kitchen to get dinner started. As I moved around the kitchen I began to relax until I heard someone beating on my door. I threw everything down and stormed over to it. I swung it open only to find Terrence's baby mama, Tiffany at my door with their two year old daughter Terrica. Yes I said two year old daughter! That situation lead to me running to Charles for comfort. "Where Terrence at?" Tiffany asked as she tried to look around me to see inside of my house.
