SASHA AND MORROW



"We're strangers. Essentially. We can say whatever we want 
to each other, and it doesn't matter. In a good way."


[Mahlena wrote this short story! Please leave a comment!🙆🏾]


“The Hamptons.”

“In New York?”

“Not the place. My family. Although we have summered in Sag Harbor.”

Under the shade of a palm tree, Sasha handed Morrow a hair elastic.

He wrapped the yellow band around the fuzzy end of the French braid that he had just plaited on the side of her head. Then he picked up the wide tooth comb from their picnic blanket and detangle her pouf of 4B natural hair before staring on the other braid.

“Old Black money from the DMV. DC, Maryland, and Virginia,” Sasha explained. “Doctors, lawyers, politicians. Only respectable professions encouraged. No sports or entertainment allowed to sully the brand.”
