Today is the day! 

Braxton Morris slapped his alarm clock to shut it off and rose from the bed. He stretched out his arms and inhaled deep, feeling refreshed, rejuvenated. 


For once, Braxton didn’t dread going into work. Unlike other mornings, Braxton would be leaving his home with a pep in his step. He’d shower, shave, and put on his best suit, ready to walk into his boss’s office to hand in his resignation. 

Thank God. 

Though Braxton was grateful to Donahue and Lister for giving him his first job out of high school, he was ready for a change. 

With all the money he’d saved and aid from the new company, he’d be able to return to school to finish his marketing degree. 

Unfortunately, his mother and father weren’t around to assist. Braxton had practically raised himself after his grandmother passed when he was fourteen. None of his relatives wanted the burden of raising a young black child, so Braxton stayed in his grandmother’s apartment, paying the bills as an adult. No question, he’d been lucky. He was a whiz kid with computer skills and did side gigs until he was old enough to work at Donahue. 

Being so young, the position was everything he needed. Steady hours, decent pay for a seventeen-year-old, but no benefits. Thankfully, he’d stayed healthy. Other than deep paper cuts, he never needed to see a doctor. 

Now, at the age of twenty-two, he was ready for this change of scenery to his new position at Donahue’s rival, Weston Marketing Corp. They’d promised him a position as an apprentice with better pay and benefits. If he did well, he’d be promoted within one to two years. No way could he pass that up. Braxton had to jump on it now before he lost the opportunity of a life time. 

After he picked out his outfit for the day, Braxton ambled to his bathroom. Once he relived himself, he turned the valves and the water rained down into the bathtub. Braxton shoved his boxers down to his ankles and stepped into the shower, allowing the droplets to cascade over his entire body. He sighed contentedly and placed his head under the water to wake himself up. 

“Gonna make you proud of me, Mom, Dad, and Gram.” Braxton talked to himself as he grabbed his shower gel. “It’s been a tough go with none of you here, but I was determined to be somebody.”

Braxton grabbed his loofah and squeezed an ample amount on the sponge. He ran it over his chest and abs, building up the suds on his skin. Braxton blew out a breath and continued doing the same to his shoulders and backside. 

After he did the same to his arms, Braxton stepped directly under the showerhead so the droplets would pelt his face. “Today is the day.” Braxton spit out the excess water and moved away, rubbing his eyes. 

“Goodbye, Donahue, and helloWeston Marketing.”
