A young female virgin befriends a popular guy. They attend a party together where they both consume alcohol. The next day, she realizes that she cannot recall all the details of what happened that night and suspects that she may have been sexually assaulted by her friend. She confronts him about her suspicions, but he vehemently denies it. As the accusation becomes public, the situation quickly becomes complicated. The man's influential father, a misogynistic US senator, uses his connections to harass the woman and discredit her character. The case gains nationwide media attention and polarizes the Black community. Despite the backlash, her two close friends stand by her side, demonstrating their unwavering support even at the cost of their own reputations. Throughout the story, they exemplify Black girl magic, showcasing their resilience and strength in the face of adversity. More about Plot: At the heart of the story is a love story. A wealthy teenage virgin falling in love with her extremely wealthy boyfriend. His family is part of a political dynasty & one of the richest in the world. She makes a rape accusation against him that nearly derails their relationship and his family comes after her hard. Plus, social issues are explored throughout the story. Author's Notes: Nearly all of the characters are wealthy (but a few). They are very conscious, highly educated, prominent in the country, always giving back to the community, have successful careers, own their whole town, making international connections, etc. The black folks in this town recreated their own Black Wall Street and plan to create Black Wall Streets around the world. I always wanted to write about a black family dynasty that has it all and planned to keep it come hell or high water.
