“The reality of it all coming to light is so rewarding. Originally, it was the inside pages of my diary. And to have seen those actions played out in living color and took me back in time. It was not a healthy place to be then. But, now I can step back and give praise to our Maker for bringing me through that dark period in my journey” . . . said Norstrom when informed of its release.

Chocolate complexion. Stands 5’10”, deep brown, beady eyes, short pudgy nose, stocky build, has NO eyebrows, smooth talker, sharp dresser, quick thinker, a definite lady’s man, an ex-military soldier. He is the Baby Daddy. Always walk with a good posture and stares a person dead in the eyes when they talk, blows perfect smoke rings that float in the air as he exhales his cigarette smoke. He’s sneaky, caddish, a cheater, and a chronic liar who lacks trust. He takes on a mistress. Showing his true colors, he even steps out on the mistress. When fathering a child out-of-wedlock, he doesn’t man up to take ownership or responsibility. He lacks integrity, has no morals or boundaries while committing his affairs.

He’s a talented entertainer of an R&B group. He’d always come onstage wearing his black, gold and a red scarf wrapped around his head in a bandana style. Whenever he sings, he sways seductively. He has mood swings; as a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; and a believer of black magic. Marcus is a wicked, mean, and frightening person; his other side gentle and affectionate. And after the breakup, he retaliates by stalking or lurking in the wings.
Another Mistress . . . .
