Being Lily | Fiction

Qarnita Loxton

Kwela

Dr Lily De Angelo is counting down the final weeks before her wedding to Owen Fisher, making sure everything is perfect. The seating arrangements, for one. Owen’s dad from Elsies River on the Cape Flats will have to be seated far away from Lily’s snobbish parents who keep insinuating that Owen is not good enough for their trust fund baby. Owen might look like a young Robert de Niro, but it seems they are all too aware that he is of mixed Capetonian rather than Italian stock. As if that matters!
But Lily’s seating arrangement woes are nothing compared to the shock she gets when Owen’s ex Courtney Hay shows up with her fifteen-year-old mini me, Chiara. With silver bullet suitcases in tow they have come to break the news that Owen might be Chiara’s dad. Suddenly everything goes pear-shaped for Lily, including her ass – and that's despite the incentive bonus to her personal trainer.
Courtney and Chiara move in with Lily and Owen and not only is the ex from hell making eyes at him, but Owen seems a bit too happy at the thought of potentially being a dad. Lily and Owen had decided long ago to commit to love and marraige, but without the baby carriage, thank you very much. Is he changing his mind about children, about her?
Being Lily is a story with equal amounts of humour and depth, exploring what it means to live, love, and commit in the changing times of happy-(n)ever-after.
