Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ruby

Plot Summary Part 1

A black boy named Ephram loved to watch a black girl named Ruby. One time he saw her stand in the middle the street and start urinating. When people started laughing at her she looked down at the puddle she created and dropped all her food into it. People laughed and laughed. They knew Ruby was crazy but Ephram was turned on by this. He wanted to help Ruby.

Later, Ephram found her lying in a puddle of muddy water. Ruby dunked her head in the muddy water in and out like a turtle. This causes Ephram to get sexually aroused.

They go to a shack where an old woman named Ms. Tante lives. Ms. Tante casts magic spells like Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, but she's a black woman like the Oracle from The Matrix. Ms. Tante grabs Ruby close, so close that Ruby smells Ms. Tante's pipe (she's a black lady who smokes a pipe!) as well as the smell of rotting meat. I don't know what the rotting meat is, although Ruby is rather close to Ms. Tante's v_gina at this point.

Ms. Tante casts a magic spell and slaps Ruby in the face. I don't know if the face slap was part of the spell or something that Ms. Tante simply enjoyed for its own benefit. Ms. Tante cast a spell to protect Ruby from the African American ghost who wants to have sex with her. Did I mention that there is an African American ghost who wants to have sex with Ruby? It's the ghost of Ephram's father, a black minister. He liked to bone Ruby when he was alive and even know as a ghost he still enjoys the occasional boning.

Ephram enjoys hanging around with Ruby but Ruby's black friend Maggie doesn't like Ephram and beats the crap out of him. Yes, Ephram just got beaten up by a girl, a girl who taunts him by saying she is more of a boy than he is.

Ms. Tante casts another magic spell, slicing into a pomegranate and squeezing fruit juice on Ruby's face. I guess she was out of grape or apple juice for her magic spells, heh heh heh.

Ms. Tante gives Ephram and Ruby magical black dolls. Now they can play house with black Barbie dolls.

The black ghost appears and starts to bone Ruby.  She felt a soft pressure on her groin and she gets  excited as the black ghost boned her. She ground hard against her bed and screamed as "her sex spilled". She had an orgasm with a black ghost, heh heh heh.

Ruby sees the ghosts of dead children. They go inside her but I don't think she has sex with them.

Meanwhile, Ephram fondly recalled the times he spent with a prostitute. The whore smelled of ammonia and candy, heh heh. "He'd fumbled and trembled until her impatient hand guided him to her soft center." Ephram didn't know where to put his p_nis into. Without the whore's help, maybe he would have stuck it into her ear. But when he finally got it into the right hole, "The release was magnificent".

Then Ephram thought about an old girlfriend who let him bone her as long as she kept her panties on. Not making this up. He kept this up until his older sister Celia caught him boning her and that was the end of that.

Ruby becomes like Neo in "The Matrix" and can feel all different parts of the world. She can feel the road in faraway places, and feel people walking on the road hundreds of miles away. Did I mention Ruby was totally crazy? Yes, I believe I did.

A guy named Chauncy comes to bone Ruby. The only problem is that she is disgusting and dirty. So he hoses her off first, as if he is washing a car, before he bones her in a ditch by the side of the road.
