Next Saturday (A short story)
Next Saturday (A short story) Next Saturday, Mama will dress up in her CWO uniform for the meeting ahead of church tomorrow. She will powder her face lightly. Ponds. The name stylized on the scented powder that Mama applies ever so delicately on her flawless light skin. She will not bathe Ada today because Saturdays are the days Mama lets Ada bathe herself. Ada will stand naked in the bathroom for a tad longer after washing twice like mama taught her to but she will not be satisfied. She will stretch out the back of her hands and scrunch up her nose then look around for a solution. Mama will not see her tiptoe into the room to pick up the large bristled brush for scrubbing her school shoes.
