Hi sixers and friends. Here we go again with another SSSunday. I love your comments so jump in though I’m way down on the list this week.
When you have an interracial relationship, lots can go wrong and when you keep a major secret from your lover and his sister, your best friend, the lie is too much to bear. Here Shelley finally confesses. In this scene, Shelley speaks to her best friend Charlie, Jimmy’s sister. As athletes, the young women had been roommates at Northwestern U in Evanston, IL.
“Charlie, you accepted me as a friend and roommate but how would you feel if I were to marry your brother and bring color into the lily white home of your Aunt and Uncle. I envied your life and all the love they have for you.” She took another deep breath and reached for the twins in Jimmy’s arms who relinquished them so readily it made her pause and when he again refused to meet her eyes, her mind moved on. “I’ve committed a sin of omission by not coming clean. If you can find it in your hearts to forgive me, we can work it out. Ball’s in your court.”
