Play the Game

by Karen J Mossman

Excerpt:

Going on a first date is always daunting, and more so for Stella,

I was an idiot. Why would I ever agree to go to a posh hotel for dinner with a hot guy? Who was I kidding? Food! The thought of a hot meal made my stomach grumble. The last time I ate anything hot was payday in the work’s canteen.

Looking at the pile of clothes on the bed, I realised that each piece of clothing had been tried on and discarded, and now my wardrobe was bare. I couldn’t recall the last time I went on a date or bought something new.

It was awkward, as guys generally asked questions. I couldn’t tell anyone about my circumstances or my dad. Anyway, who’d believe me?

Coping with past tragedies, Stella lives on hope in the present. 

She plays the game and hopes that one day she will beat the odds.

Is this all there is to Stella’s story?

Self shame is the enemy…. It is a power struggle.

At times it may seem hopeless and pointless to fight the inner demons.

Sometimes, when your self esteem is low, it takes a special someone to help build it up again.
