3) DA CYBER CHRONICLES

In episode #10 of Everything’s Gonna Be Alright: Caduceus has yet
to reveal her real reason for coming back home, but Clemson stumbles
across a clue that may prevent Caduceus for keeping her secret.
Caduceus, however, will try to flip the script because Clemson’s
been keeping something from Tre…

NOW, in episode #11: Clemson comes clean with Tre about Brady,
and Cassie – while wondering what’s behind her husband’s explosive
confrontation with Clemson – meets a man at work who wants to take
her out…

::Excerpt::

Clemson could feel the power it took to kiss that soft and it
made her tremble from the inside out. Tre’s hands felt like tiny
streams flowing up and down her back.

“Tre,” Clemson moaned as Tre broke the kiss, for only the briefest
of seconds, his mouth once again landing on Clemson’s, but this
time almost devouring her, his tongue exploring the warm depths
of her mouth.

Tre’s hands crept under Clemson’s tee as his fingers lightly
caressed her back, up to her bra, quickly unfastening the hooks,
making her ache for him to remove it completely.

The phone rang. Not once, not twice or even three times, but four.
Groaning, Tre parted from Clemson and crawled over to the cordless
on the desk, answering it.

“Hello,” he said, a tinge of annoyance in his voice. All Tre could
hear was a woman crying, sobbing. “Kat, is that you? What’s wrong?”

4) THE POETRY CORNER

TNC has always provided itself in showcasing talented poets, and
this issue is no different. In fact, we’re not showcasing one
poet, nor two or three; we’re spotlighting FOUR wonderful poets
who bring eclectic tastes, rhythms, musicality, and issues within
their work.

This issue, we are spotlighting two awesome poets; come, read the
poetic works and interviews with The King of Erotica and Onika
Pascal!

short, Rearview Mirror, about a cab driver whose interactions with
