Nigel Tries to Move On

Nigel was going crazy. It had been weeks since he visited his uncle, Gideon and saw Ruth. She didn't call or text him and many times, he wanted to call or text her but he didn't. He didn't want to pressure her but it was hard. He thought about her all the time and longed …

Ridge

He liked to come to this spot and swim. It was secluded and just a half hour drive from his condo. It was a hot but cloudy day. The sun stayed behind the clouds most of the time. He had come here after leaving the gym. It was the last Saturday in January. He thought …

In Turmoil

He emerged from the water after a long swim. The sun felt nice and warm on his back. He had been on the beach for most of the day. It was where he liked to go when he had a lot on his mind. And he had a lot on his mind right now. He …

He Found Grèce

It was the end of March. Three more months left and then, he would be returning to Hong Kong. He broke the surface of the water and ran his fingers through his hair, closing his eyes and sighing heavily. Why did he have to return to his life there when he longed to remain here? …

Edward’s Plan to Propose

Edward was on his way to meet Gladys at their favorite restaurant. It was where he was going to pop the question. Last night when he visited his parents, he told them, "I'm going to ask Gladys to marry me." They exchanged glances, then, his mother asked him, "Do you love her?" "Of course, I …

The Morellis’ Christmas Dinner

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels It was time to head over to his uncle's and aunt's house so Father Morelli left the loft where he had spent most of the afternoon. As he walked to his car, the more he thought about seeing Genet, the more anxious he became. He wished things could have been …

Gina in Therapy

Gina was on her way to see her therapist. Several weeks ago, when she visited Kira, she informed her, "I've decided that I want to go for counseling. I need to talk to someone professional about the issues with my father and my divorce. Do you know of anyone you can refer me to?" "Do …
