More Than A Woman

Updated: Sep 21

"What can you really do, you're just a woman," Steven West said in a worried manner, his facial expressions matched his response, "No offense intended, Stel'." He stared out the picture window of his spacious office, located in one of the numerous high-rise office buildings in downtown Detroit. The short, heavyset man with the receding hairline was well dressed. The fifty-year-old was the vice-president of Godly Enterprise, which was a company that specialized in all means of global shipping.

Stella stopped and glanced over her shoulder, "No offense taken, Steven. When we lack the correct knowledge of something, we always draw the wrong conclusion. My spirit makes me more than a woman and my abilities...make me the only person that's needed." Thirty-year-old Stella Godly said she was tall, dark, and drop-dead gorgeous. She wore her dreadlocked hair in a stylish crown shape, without question she looked like the queen she thought herself to be. A designer dress concealed her six-foot, hundred and seventy-pound frame, and high heels were on her feet, both displaying she was a woman of impeccable taste. She was the president of Godly Enterprise, which she founded when she was only twenty years old. So, not only was she beautiful, but she was highly intelligent as well.

Steven turned away from the window and now faced Stella's back. "I know you're good Stel', hell...freaking phenomenal actually. But up to this point you've only dealt with the minor portions of this major problem, Stratosphere is a force to be reckoned with."

Stella turned to face Steven, "Granted Steven, but I've defeated every aspect of said portion. So, with this being the case, doing likewise pertaining to the force to be reckoned with...isn't an impossible task at all."

"I absolutely love your way of thinking Stel' and for all our sakes, I pray that you do defeat him."

"You and I both, Steven." Stella turned back towards the door, turned the knob, and then walked out, on her way to do what she did best.

Stella knew her mission, just like she knew it wasn't going to be an easy one. Hell, none of her missions have ever been easy, but none were as intense as the one she was about to take on. She thought to herself, 'as long as I never doubt in what I was enlightened to understand, it won't be as hard as it could be.' She was enlightened by one of the best, to be the best. Fear was something she had long since cleansed her mind of, thanks to the said enlightenment, which also established within her unwavering confidence.

"I'm more than a woman," Stella said aloud, and as she now stood before the elevators,

"I'm also a weapon. One that's capable of destroying anything that gets in my way. What can I do, Steven? Well, you and everyone else are about to find out," she chuckled as she entered the elevator, focused...and absolutely ready to deal with whatever may come.

Stella has always had an infatuation with wanting to know and understand, her curiosity was never satisfied. This obsession led her to graduate from the prestigious Morehouse College at seventeen, an accomplishment that impressed everyone, except for her that is. She understood her level of intellect, but what she didn't know...was all else there was to know and understand. She understood that no amount of time could ever allow her to know and understand everything, but with the time she had, she was determined to acquire as much wisdom as she possibly could. On her sixteenth birthday, her journey would take on a whole new meaning. It was at this time that her need to know and understand...would be taken to the level of utter astoundment.

During her elaborate sweet sixteen birthday party, which was made possible thanks to her loving parents, Stella met Wizard Worldy. Wizard was a tall, dark, and handsome man with long dreadlocks and a well-groomed full beard. Forty-one-year-old Wizard introduced himself to Stella, who was instantly attracted to him. But it wasn't a sexual attraction, it was one of a need to know nature. She literally felt that he had so much to teach her, despite the fact that this was her first time ever seeing him. Before Wizard left he gave Stella a platinum chain and charm, as well as his cellphone number. The charm on the chain was that of a heart-shaped locket, engraved on the inside of said charm were the words..."More Than A Woman."

With her curiosity in overdrive all that night, the next day Stella quickly called Wizard. They mutually agreed to meet at a popular coffee shop in downtown Detroit and it was here that she began to realize, things she never imagined. The more the handsome mystery man spoke, the more she wanted to hear him speak. There was never any doubt in Stella's mind that she was special, but she had no idea she was as special as Wizard was proclaiming. What truly blew her mind was when he told her she was born to save the world, not a person or people in the world, but the entire world itself.

The following week young Stella began the process of understanding what she had no idea she already knew. Wizard informed her that we're all born with the knowledge within us, we just need it to be activated via experience. He would go on to tell her that experience is the key to understanding, which she agreed with, thanks to her level of understanding up to that point. He told her that we possess the ability to control things on the Earth, seeing that we, like them, are of the Earth. This part she found hard to believe, that is, until he moved a table and chair using nothing but his mind. He told her that if it's of the Earth, it can be manipulated by the Earth. The Earth was created to provide us with a means to produce and to be productive, this is its sole purpose. What we produce from the Earth is due to the Spirit, logic, and reason. We are in control of all we produce, so all we produce is controlled by us, and can be controlled by others as well. When we're in our right frame of mind, our mind can totally control all things produced on this Earth.  He told her that mind reading was made possible due to a lack of focus. When we lose focus our thinking is no longer safeguarded, at this moment those who are focused can literally see what we're thinking as if they were clearly hearing us saying it. On this day, Stella was officially obsessed with Wizard.

At eighteen, Stella was bad...in a good way. She was a diligent student and Wizard, was a well-enlightened teacher. He reintroduced her to herself, she now understood the power outside of her, was also the same power within her. It was the perfect unison of mind and Spirit that left her doing things she never imagined anyone doing...let alone herself. She was also enlightened on various means of hand-to-hand combat, which was something she rarely needed to use, but when she had, she ensured her adversaries would never forget the experience.
