Samantha Miller from the novel “Wounded” by Ben Burgess Jr.
Where do I begin? I’m just a fucked up woman trying to survive in life. My Mother was a heroin addict and a prostitute, who used to sell me to Johns for her next fix. My Father (if you want to call him that, I look at him as the sperm donor who helped create me), was a Bajan pimp who never wanted to claim me as his child. I’ve been in foster homes and homeless shelters. I’ve been arrested and put in jail. Oh, and did I mention I’m a Lesbian that happens to be a stripper? Does that surprise you? Do you feel sorry for me? Don’t! I don’t need anyone’s pity. I probably take home more money in a night than any of you do in a month.
I’m the headliner at J’s Gentlemen’s Quarters in the Bronx. When I’m not taking money from these dumb ass men, I’m hunting. That’s right, I’m looking for all those women who I think are secretly Gay. You know the type, the ones who get drunk and become extra flirty with the girls, yeah those types. The ones that flirt with women, but haven’t done anything more than that, yeah those types. I love turning women out and showing them what true pleasure is all about. I’m good at fucking with people’s heads. I know you’re wondering why I do the shit that I do. Are you curious? Do you want to see inside my mind?
