One of the dealer's henchmen forces her to make good on her word. Taking her to a rowdy bar where only he can protect her, he has her remove her pants and then climb into his lap.

Things get much worse for our little confessor when she discovers that she enjoys being humiliated and degraded. She breathlessly recounts the entire ordeal in vivid detail. She learns an important life lesson as a result of her suffering, but perhaps the most startling confession she makes is that--many years later--this married, young mother still fantasizes about her big black lover, the same man who treated her so rudely, forcing her to submit to his every whim.

Out of the frying pan, into the fire...
If by fire you mean a creamy stew of baby batter (and of course we do!)
