Struggle To Freedom Excerpt #2 ~ Thus Began The Town Known As Heyvyn

Excerpt #2 from STRUGGLE TO FREEDOM by Aziza Ashanti:

Just before winter, the men made a clearing through the forest so they could go back and forth to the next town easily, and barter for supplies and food. With their shares of the gold, the First Five built the various offices and buildings, so they could rent them out as more people moved into town. They were positioned for wealth and power.

Once Rufus purchased supplies, he stopped by his family’s home to visit his mother. He discovered his father had passed away and his mother was living a poor and humble life with his oldest brother.

Rufus found her, dropped to his knees in front of her, held her hand to his face and explained everything that had happened to him. Rufus recapped their sex sessions, which taught him about business, developed his mind and shaped him into the man he had become.

He begged his mother to come live with him, where she would never want for anything. Tears of happiness streamed down her face. Given that she didn’t have much, it didn’t take her long to gather her belongings.

On the way to their new home, Rufus purchased clothes, perfumes, and incidentals for his mother. Not only was she grateful, she was speechless. Never in her wildest dreams, did she think that she would have become part of the upper crust of polite society in her lifetime.

Meanwhile, the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect. Rufus remembered that there were other men who believed as he did and went back to petition their help and support for the new town he was building. He was careful not to approach men who were disapproving of his lifestyle. He simply invited men who shared his lifestyle, the opportunity to visit their town.

After arriving in Heyvyn, his mother was amazed at his accomplishments, and because she was Rufus’ mother, she immediately attained the status of High Society and Nobility. Rufus tasked her with organizing and implementing an education system for Heyvyn. Now his mother had purpose and power. She instituted a pre-college requirement as part of the education system, which caused high school to extend to the 14th grade.

Within the month, 30 families moved in. Several of these new families possessed talents and abilities that helped further develop the town. Quite a few non-incestuous families joined Heyvyn because of the opportunity to make money.

The surrounding towns are aware of the reputation of Heyvyn. However as long as Heyvyn left them alone, they left Heyvyn alone. The trade between all the various towns created a balance in the region which perpetuated progress, technology, and commerce.

Thus began the town we know today as Heyvyn.
