Jaded Diamonds (Volume 1) -"Yes. I'm seven weeks pregnant." I said locking my fingers together and motioning my hands up and down my stomach. "It's his. Your baby mama almost beat it outta me!" Precious, Sheena, Veronica, and the rest of the diamonds are each at the make or break phase of life. Trained by a mother who believes in using good looks and sexual favors to get ahead, the closest thing to love that Veronica has experienced is endless wads of cash by men she could care less for, and love for a lover who consistently makes it clear that his passion for her begins and ends between the sheets. Different, But alike in other ways, Sheena isn't comfortable in her dark chocolate skin. With a mixed breed for a sister, and a blond hair, blue eyed, society praised, dagger throwing step-mom for a mother, believing that she’s beautiful and worthy of showcasing a tremendous talent is a day to day struggle. Precious on the other hand, she struts around like she’s God’s gift to every brotha’ that crosses her path, and a curse to the sista’s that they’re with. Truth be told, she uses her snobbish beauty and unreasonable expectations to disguise her mounting pain, and to glamorize the misery that she carries along with her Gucci bags. Are you a JADED DIAMOND?
