Description
Malik got out of the swing and walked in back of me. "I've seen you swim, girl. You're the best I've ever seen. And whenever you ready you can win. Or, you can give up", he said, placing his hand in the middle of my back. "Just remember one thing", he said, pushing me gently, so gently, I could barely feel his hand as I swung up into the air. "I'll be here for you when you need me. But only if you don't let them win"."Them who?" I asked, closing my eyes and letting the wind whisper on my face."Them who would hold you back", he said. "Keisha . . ". He stopped the swing with both his hands on either side of me. He leaned in close to my ear and whispered, "Keisha, don't let them win. I've gotta go now, but if anybody bothers you again, I'm taking it up".-- from Born in Sin
