Devious Minds Chapter 12

“Triplets get your cute butts out here! Food is here,” Theresa called out to Diamond, Diana and Destiny who were in their rooms, getting out of their work clothes. Theresa had walked home with the ladies after work without Patrick who had a meeting and would be meeting up with them around 8:30pm. “Okay, I’m here,” Diamond said. “So are we,” Destiny and Diana said in unison and giggle. “Aight, I got the plates, choose your own drink,” Theresa told the group. “I think we should just eat and watch something until Patrick reaches, you know he’s going to want to know what he missed. So, just to avoid repeating, I’m waiting on the Diva,” Theresa continued as the ladies burst out in laughter. The ladies were eating and watching some sitcom re-runs on the T.V. They were so caught up in what they were watching that they never heard when Patrick came in and said, “Jesus must be the star the way ya’ll are glued to that rectangle lying box in front of you.” The group was so shocked that Diamond dropped her empty plate. Thank God it was plastic. “You fool… nearly gave me a heart attack. How long have you been standing there?” Destiny asked him. “Not long, I just got in and no one budged, that’s when I realized that ya’ll was deep into the show,” he replied. “Your pizza and wings are in the microwave, you look fresh, you been home long before coming over?” Diana asked Patrick. He replied, “No, we got out around 7pm. Jade Limin’Times Entertainment Guide

was heading this way so I got a ride and decided to head up, get a quick shower then come over.” Jade was one of the two friends Patrick had at work. They weren’t best friends but they got along well. She was the one that offered him the ride since she was going to be heading to his area. After grabbing his food and drink, Patrick joined the ladies at the Island and said, “So what did I miss?” The triplets looked at Theresa and burst out laughing, she was shaking her head because she knew her friend. “Boy nothing, now eat, so we can move to the sitting room and be more comfortable rather than hurting our backs on these bar stools,” Diana told him. Once they were in the sitting room before anyone could say anything Diamond spoke; “I got news, I did some new designs and instead of taking them to work, I’m dropping them off tomorrow to House of Fashion to sell them. I spoke with them a few weeks ago and if they like them, they will be promoting my brand of designs with my name on them.” Her family screamed and jumped up to hug her. That gave her a little more confidence about her work. Their support meant the world to her. “Watch who growing ball$, I gotta watch out you might grow some bigger than mine,” Patrick told Diamond. “Boy, yours are too big, no way in hell that going happen,” she replied and they all started laughing. “So now that Diamond looks like she’s heading to lead the group, what about everyone, what’s the update on getting what we want?” Patrick asked. 12


Be Like Water I love large and even not so large bodies of water… the sea, lakes, rivers and even streams. However, I’m very afraid of drowning and what is a source of delight and peace and beauty, has shown up in my dreams a few times as a source of distress as I have had a few near-drowning nightmares. Regardless of how we view water, we have to admit that it is one of the most dynamic forces of nature. Recently, the all-female sailing team in Antigua made history by mastering the sea and there were celebrations of jubilee. Also, if we ask the folks in Dominica, they will tell you how water wreaked havoc for their country recently with rains and floods. In spite of everything, the good and the bad, there are some lessons we can learn from water: 1. Follow your own path. When you see a stream flowing, it follows its path with determination and when there seems to be obstacles like large rocks, it just goes over or around it. Sometimes we have to focus on where we are going and not allow distractions to side track us from our goal. 2. Cleansing is good. Water has a tendency to wash away dirt from the objects that it touches; so too, we can make a habit of cleansing our thoughts and our words and our soul so that we stay as pure as we can and help to purify the live of those around us because we bring a wholesome spirit with our presence. 3. Go with the flow. Water often follows the current and a specific direction instead of going against what is natural. It doesn’t hurt for us to have a sense of flexibility, where we sometimes just 13

loosen up and go with the natural order of things instead of fighting against everything and everyone we encounter. 4. Cooperation is useful. Sometimes we see a smaller pond or gutter merging into a larger body of water and together they form a stronger force. So too, when we can align with the right persons, we strengthen each other and can accomplish much more than we would have alone. As we drink a cup of water today, or behold the beauty of a wave or the power of a thundering waterfall, let us pause and reflect on which attribute of water we most want to adopt and how we can find life lessons everywhere.

Penn Makes Puerto Rico Basketball League Impact Kleon Penn has made his impact on the Puerto Rico Superior Basketball League. He has played with Caciques de Humacao, Vasqueros de Bayamon and is currently with Brujos de Guaynama. After becoming the All Time Shots Blocker last season with 645, the league named Penn among its Top 5 Centers of The Decade, much to his surprise. “It’s an honour because in Puerto Rico, you have so many great centers come through and to be listed as one of the Top 5 big men in the league for the decade, was an extreme honour,” he said. “I saw them doing it for the point guards, forwards and others but I wasn’t thinking about me being included and to see I was there included with them was awesome. There are great names like Peter John Ramos, Danny Santiago and Mike Sweetney who played with the New York Knicks, so it as great to be named with those guys.” Regarding the blocks, Penn said when he started playing, he didn’t go past the half court line. “That’s all I used to do, stay at the half court line and play defense,” he said when asked if he saw himself at the level he has gone on to after taking the sport seriously. “After I saw that I had a talent for it in college and being one of the top three in the whole nation in blocks, I thank God that I’ve been had good health and have been able to play as long as I have in Puerto Rico and achieve that (blocks) award.” Penn, who played with the HLSCC Stingrays didn’t even see himself playing basketball beyond the BVI Basketball Association League.

“Honestly, I was just thinking after high school, just go and start working,” he said. “The whole basketball thing just came out of the blue. It has been an amazing experience. It has taken me through college, places in the world I would never think of going and the one experience in the NBA as the best ever. I’d never forget that.” What would he be doing If he wasn’t playing professional basketball? “Being a 7-foot accountant behind the desk,” he said laughing. “A big accountant.” His advice to youngsters who would like to follow in his footsteps is to work hard. “Be coachable,” he said. “You can’t come in with the attitude as if you know everything. If you’re not coachable, they won’t keep you around. I got a lot more chances because I’m coachable, nice and easy to get along with. I’ve seen players come in with bad attitudes and in 2-3 days, they’re gone. So you have to be coachable, nice and work at your craft.” His aim this year is to help his team win a championship and after Puerto Rico, play in other leagues throughout the year. “I’m getting older so I just want to keep playing basketball as long as I can while I can,” he said.
