Queenie Beasley was the matriarch of the Beasley family; ninety-three years young and still kicking and screaming. She had a cordial relationship with Sarah and Savannah, for that matter, but she loved her Shelby.
“Who is this you bought with you?” Queenie said to her granddaughter extending her hand to Logan so that he could kiss it, which he did.
“I am Lance…” and before Logan could finish the sentence Shelby cut him off and said. “This is Logan Chandler, Granny, my date”
“WHAT?” Shelby’s mother said speaking for the first time since Shelby had arrived at the table.
“Oh sit down and hush, Sarah! My grandbaby is introducing me to her boyfriend.” Looking up at Logan smiling, she said, “Sit down, young man, I am old. I want to get a good look at the man that caused this amazing transformation in my granddaughter.” Laughing, Logan said, “Yes ma’am” as he squatted down in front of Queenie.
“Oh, yes Shelby, I see why you have a smile. He is a cute one. So what do you do for a living, Logan?” Queenie said.
“Ex-con,” Sarah said before Logan had a chance to speak. “Honestly, Shelby, what are you doing dating an ex-convict? I thought you were dating the brother?”
“Momma, I…” Shelby started but her grandmother cut her off.
“Sarah, if we all judged someone for the rest of their lives on their mistakes in the past, then you would still be known as the town tramp swinging from a pole at Juice’s,.” Queenie said winking at Logan.
