Sweat dripped down her face as she gripped the steering wheel and braced herself for the inevitable. She watched nervously as a cop walked closer to her car. She tried keeping her anxiety in check, but she knew there was no way out of this. She was in serious trouble and there was nothing she could say to him that would save her. The moment of truth was upon her as she rolled down her window.

Her hands kept shaking, which was the last thing she wanted the cop to see. Shaky hands were a dead give-away. But she couldn’t stop any more than she could keep her heart from beating faster and faster. What’s worse, her brain was working at 1,000 miles a minute playing a different scenario. Would she end up in prison? She didn’t know how this would turn out. But she felt like she was in trouble and there was nothing she could do about it. Was this fate?

Ebony Rhodes had already experienced some of the most difficult months of her life. She relocated her entire family to Atlanta, Georgia, after her mom passed away. She's a single mom with four kids, which meant she had to find a means of providing for her family right away. Fortunately, Atlanta had some great job offers. But Rhodes had to face facts. She kept a secret from everyone for the well-being of her kids, but the truth was about to come out.

Dealing with grief is awful, especially when you have to play it cool in front of your children. But sometimes, life can be cruel, and you get put through the wringer, which is something she knew all too well. But all she cared about at the moment was providing for her kids and finding a good job. Unfortunately, she had a past, and knew it would eventually come back to haunt her.

Rhodes was driving her kids to the library on one seemingly uneventful afternoon. She told them to study and do well in school, especially since finals were coming up. She knew that a good education would mean a great life for them. In fact, she thought about this on the drive there, which is why she failed to realize a patrol car had approached her. Then, she saw the flashing lights and heard the siren, and Rhodes knew she was in trouble.
