The Higher Learning Curve


by Keith Kareem Williams

Marlon and Victoria are two young college students who are both trying to decide what they want to do with the rest of their lives while also trying to figure out what they’re doing with each other. What started out as a meaningless summertime fling has become something much more complicated and confusing to them both.

Enter Priscilla Anthony, Marlon’s World Arts professor, who offers the young lovers a ride home during a thunderstorm one afternoon after class. The rainy evening they spend together becomes the beginning of a series of sensual entanglements that develops into something none of them expected. The interactions that follow take on a strangely sensual, and erotic dynamic with resounding ripple effects throughout all of their lives.
