CHAPTER ONE

CANDY

 

sex was in the air. The woman’s long legs were spread as far apart as possible. Her back sunk into the leather couch of her office. Her slanted eyes rolled to the back of her head. She thrust her pelvis forward as her body jerked uncontrollably as if she was having an exorcism. She felt like she was floating. Her lips quivered. The euphoric sensation of her throbbing clit was all she sensed. Her oak desk, the photos on her walls, the ultra modern lamps, the breeze from the ceiling fan—they all were non-existent. The only important thing was the tongue between her thighs. It made her feel so good that she could not utter a sound, although her mouth was wide open. Candy’s manicured fingernails clawed the crushed velvet couch as she climaxed. Finally, she managed to whisper, “Thank you.”

She opened her eyes as Vera removed her face from between her legs. Candy watched the firm figure of the nineteen-year-old wiping her cum-soaked lips. Vera’s gold and brown dreads hung to her slim waist, just above her large, round butt. Her body was a work of art. Itappeared to have been perfectly sculpted from chocolate and it tasted just as sweet.

“Why you lookin' at me like that?” Vera asked.

Candy leaned up until she was sitting in the center of the couch. “Come here,” shewhispered.

Vera smiled, stepping forward. “What's up, baby?”

Candy gazed at Vera's perky B-cups, and then grabbed a handful of her butt. “You know your body is so beautiful, right?”

Vera giggled.

Candy turned her around and gently kissed on each of her butt cheeks then slid her tongue between them.

“Ahh,” Vera whimpered.

In seconds, Candy had Vera slumped over the arm of the couch, jabbing her tongue intoVera's crack. She slid her hand underneath Vera and massaged her clit simultaneously.Clutching Vera’s waist with her other hand, Candy tried to stop her from squirming uncontrollably.The more Vera moaned the more wet Candy became. Secondsturned to minutes and time flew as their sweaty bodies overheated with lust.

“I can feel it, Candy.” Vera began panting. “I'm cumming.”

Candy slurped and rubbed faster until she felt Vera's delicate body go limp and herpanting stop. She stood and patted Vera on the butt. “Come on,” Candy said as she led Vera into the privatebathroom connected to her office. The two women lathered and rinsed each other's bodies, a sensualroutine to which they had become accustomed.

Thirty minutes later after the two women were dressed, Candy glanced at her watch. It was 10:10 a.m., tenminutes past the opening time at Candy's Shop—Harlem's hottest hair salon. Candy was sureLeah was waiting out front. The gorgeous Latina was her most reliable employee, always ontime. “You ready?” Candy asked Vera.

Vera nodded.

She and Candy walked out of the office and through an area filled withlockers and benches that served as a dressing room.They stepped into the brightly lit, spacious beauty shop that housed five work stations equipped withstate-of-the-art hair tools and chairs. The walls were covered with mirrors and photos of womenwho had their hair done at the shop, plus snapshots of exclusive hairdos fromEssencemagazine.Candy grabbed a remote off a table covered with magazines. She pointed it at the iPod docbeneath one of the two large flat screen televisions. The surround sound system began blaringJay-Z'sEmpire State of Mindfrom the speakers discretely situated throughout the shop.

“Hey, Candy,” Leah said, stepping into the shop. “Sorry I'm a few minutes late.”She smiled at Vera. “Vera.”

“Hi, Leah,” Vera responded.

Candy turned to Vera. “Call me later.”

Vera winked and stepped out of the shop.

Candy looked at the smirk on Leah's face and shook her head, before sitting down.“Don't even say it, girl.”

Leah laughed. “You are just too much. You and these young girls.”

“She's a grown woman.”

“Technically, but barely legal. You got her by what? Eleven years? You really need to stop taking advantage of these young girls.”

Candy was silent, noticing the seriousness in Leah’s tone and facial expressions.“She'll be twenty soon, so you can say ten.”

“Didn't you say she got some crazy-ass brothers? They'll probably kill you if they find out you turned out their sister.”

Candy sucked her teeth. “Yeah, yeah,” she mumbled, thinking of how wild she heardVera's brothers were. But she knew they would never find out about her. Vera feared her familylearning about her sexuality. It was the reason that she was comfortable traveling, all the way from Brooklyn where she and her brothers lived, to Harlem to see Candy.

“Just be careful,” Leah said as she made her way to her station and began setting up for work.

Meisha stepped through the door. “Newww Yorkkk. Concrete jungle where dreams are made offf,” the chunky brown-skinned Harlemite sang along with the music in the shop. “Owe.”

A short, dark-skinned diva donning Fendi heels followed behind Meisha. Shestrutted over to the chair at her workstation as if she was a model onRip the Runway.She set her Fendi bag down and removed her matching shades, revealing her hazel eyes. “Chanel has justentered the building. Thank you, thank you.” She bowed and smiled. “No autographs, please.Thank you.”

Leah burst into laughter. “Y'all are crazy. Only in Candy's Shop.”

The ladies exchanged hellos and hugs. They began preparing for their customers to enterthe shop. Leah, Chanel, Meisha and Candy were the four stylists that made Candy's Shop morethan Harlem's go-to spot for hairdos. The shop was where women came to discuss the latest gear by Roberto Cavalli, what brother would be the next official sex symbol to replace Denzel

Washington after he retired, who was the last person shot or arrested in Harlem and whathandsome thug was coming home from jail with a hard dick in his pants and pussy on his mind.

While Meisha added on to whatever was mentioned, Leah usually brought some mentalstimulation to the conversations—the type of mental stimulation she got from Long IslandUniversity, where she majored in business management. Despite the professionalism Leah and the other stylists brought to the shop,Candy was searching for another beautician. She had fired the last one because of thewoman's laziness. Candy liked a festive environment in the shop, but she took her businessseriously. She had opened the shop 10 years earlier in the summer of 2000 with the help of Leah. Leah had always had a business mind, but she didn’t have the money Candy had accumulated from hustlers she dated. Candy felt guilty knowing that Leah’s insight helped create the shop, but Leah had no ownership in the shop. But Candy was all business and the business was all her’s. The shop had helped hermaintain a luxurious Harlem apartment with two closets full of designer clothes and thecustomized BMW M3 she steered to the bank each week to deposit $1,000 into her savingsaccount.

Chanel stepped outside and returned with two Sak's Fifth Avenue shopping bags.“All right, all right, y'all. It's that time of the month and I don't mean the red light special,” Chanel said. It was customary that each month a different person in the shop gave out gifts to everyonewho worked there. Chanel began pulling out clothes from the bag—a Christian Dior blouse forLeah, a Fendi clutch for Meisha. “And last, but not least,” Chanel said, stepping over to Candy.“A Michael Kors shirt for the hottest chick in Harlem.”

“Thank you,” Candy said, hugging Chanel. “This is hot.” She held up the silklavender piece so everyone could see it.

“Girl, that's nothin'. You know how we do,” Chanel said.

Candy smiled. It was those displays of camaraderie that Candy loved about theshop. She watched Chanel walk away and then peered into the mirror in front ofher. The five foot ten redbone adjusted her weave. She had the body of an Amazon and the face of abeauty queen. People often told her that she needed to leave the hair business behind and pursuemodeling.

“Hey, Candy,” Leah called out.

“What's up?” Candy responded.

“You give any thought to that idea I gave you for starting another business?”

“Yeah, jotted down some ideas.”

“Ahh, here we go,” said Chanel, shaking her head. “Heifer got a punk-ass beauty salon; now she wanna be Bill Gates out this bitch.”

“Wish I was Bill Gates,” Leah said. “He lost seven billion last year and he still the richest dude in the country with fifty billion.”

“You heard that, Chanel? Billion. Can you spell that?” Candy laughed.

“I hear that hot shit,” Chanel mumbled.

“Now, Leah, as I was saying before East New York's finest ho interrupted. I'm thinking about hair care products.”

“There's a big market for it, but there's an even bigger industry supplying.” Leah pointedat the assortment of products in front of her. “There's about a dozen brands here alone that I'm using.”

“I know, I know, I know. That's why I have to find a niche.”

“You should go online and do some research. See how big the market is, then see how big the industry is. Then see where you can fit in.”

“Yeah, guess I'll hit Google and see what's up.”

“Good morning, ladies,” Rich announced, as he walked through the front door andremoved his aviator shades. The stylish hustler lived in a penthouse on 100thStreet,where the Upper West Side ended and Harlem began. He seemed to switch up his women and cars by the week. He had a tall, athletic build and the complexion of Taye Diggs. According to the rumor mill in Harlem, he had a dick like a donkey and the stamina of a cheetah.

Rich stopped in front of Meisha. He pointed at her curly hair, then his cornrows, which Meisha had styled a few days earlier. “You ready?”

“One minute,” said Meisha. “Sit down. I gotta make a quick call.”

Rich sat and leaned back, rubbing his hands together, as Meisha pulled out her Sidekick.“I'm a busy man, Meisha. You know if I could stop time, Iwouldn't need this Rolex.”

Chanel sucked her teeth. “Plllease. You need to stop your bullshit.”

“Here she go again,” Candy mumbled to Leah. They had seen Chanel and Rich go at itregularly. Rich once had his eyes on her until she and Rich’s friend Chase got drunk and woke up in each other’s arms after a night of sex.

Rich spun around in his chair and faced Chanel with a smile. “The lovely Ms. Chanel. You sure look good, girl. I ain't even gon' lie.” He shook his head. “But not good enough for me.”

Chanel gave him the finger. “You wish you could have this.” She shifted her butt toward him.

“Just tell me how much,” Rich said. “A Gucci bag? Louie? No, no, no, no. You big time. Hermes Birkin bag, right?”

Chanel pinched her tight jeans. “You can't afford what's in these True Religions.”

“No, no, no, no, baby. You got it all wrong. Rich don't pay for pussy. I need to know what it's gonna cost me to get you off my dick?”

“No, he didn't,” Leah whispered.

“Yes he did,” Candy said.

“Fuck you, Rich!” Chanel spat, turning around.

Almost on cue, Meisha returned and began prepping Rich. She loosened his braids and shampooed his hair, as more customers entered the shop. Within 10 minutes, all the chairs were full. The flatscreen TVs at each end of the shop were on and Mary J. Blige was crooning through the soundsystem.

At one o'clock, the ladies went out to lunch, and then returned 45 minutes later. The ladies were seated in the shop joking about Rich and Chanel.

“Chanel, look me in the eyes and tell me you don't wanna fuck Rich,” Meisha said.

Chanel spun around, stared into Meisha's doe eyes and calmly replied, “No, I don't wanna fuck—” She burst into laughter before completing her sentence.

“I knew it,” Meisha said, biting down on her bottom lip. “It's okay, girl. I know how itfeel. When I be doing his hair, sometimes I just wanna jump on him and take the dick.”

“He's so picky with who he mess with,” Chanel said. “Conceited bastard.”

“Just like you,” Leah added.

“That's why y'all will never get together,” Candy interjected. “You looking for somebody to drink your bath water and he looking for somebody to hold his dick when he piss.”

Chanel jumped from her seat and began posing in front of a mirror. She held one of herbreasts. “D-cups, all natural.” She ran her hands through her long curls. “Real hair.” She pointed at her hazel eyes. “No contacts.” She shifted her hips. “And I got ass for days. Not conceited, I just know for a fact that Chanel Dennison is the shit.”

“Candy's right, though,” said Leah.

“Come on, Leah. I know you're not buying that bullshit. Not

from Candy, anyway,”Chanel said. “She get more pussy than Rich.”

Candy laughed. “Now you know I didn't always have my lickin’ license.” Everyone inthe shop knew Candy had once dated some of the most notorious guys in Harlem. One hustler,Dez, had run in the same circles with Rich until he was murdered five years earlier at a dice game on 135thStreet.Candy had always liked women, but never acted on her desires until after Dez's death. People speculated whether Dez's lesbian sister Sheena had turned Candy out, but Candydenied it.

“All right, Candy,” Chanel said. “We know you used to get up under a dick, but you beenout the loop for a minute.”
