The Farmer

"Is this your place? It's very nice but the decor seems more feminine. Not your style at all." "This isn't my place," he informed her. "This is my sister, Annette's place." "Oh. Why are we meeting here at your sister's place instead of yours?" "We could drive out to the farm if you like. It's …

Melody

He was a rich and successful man. Those who knew him described him as "diligent and debatable." He was hard-working, industrious, meticulous, contentious and controversial. He butted heads with lots of people. He was always engaged in a battle of wits and more times than not, he emerged the victor. He was an ambitious man …

Castlemore Manor

I am sitting on a bench on the immaculate grounds of Castlemore Manor, reading a book. I glanced up from its pages when my mind became occupied with memories of the place I once called home where I lived with my dear uncle and his family before he died and I was sent to Lowood.  …

Vadim

It was my lunch break and I was at the manufacturing company where my brother, Ralph worked. I was waiting out at the back for him when I noticed a guy standing there. He was very good-looking and was staring at me. I felt flattered and self-conscious. "Hi," I said. "Hi," he said. "Are you …

Friends and Lovers

I didn't mean to sleep with Jae-woo (I call him Jae) but it happened. I had just broken up with Lawrence, my boyfriend of two years and I was angry because I found that he had been cheating on me with Shondra who was supposed to be my friend. I confronted her about it and …

Roark

"So, what brings you here today?” he asked, looking amused. “Do I have to have a reason for coming over?” she quipped.  The truth was, she enjoyed spending time with him.  They had become close since the untimely and tragic death of Rebecca, her best friend two years ago.  Roark was Rebecca’s older brother.  He …

The Judge

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God - Romans 13:1, NKJV He was a judge.  I was in trouble.  I had two choices.  Go to jail for shop-lifting or sleep with him. I didn't know what …

Housekeeping

As she put the flowers in the vase, she watched the closed bedroom door. He probably had a woman in there with him. Probably some socialite he met at one of those swanky parties or dinners he was always attending. She was getting sick and tired of it. Granted, she was just his housekeeper and …

Shiloh

Everyone came to him for advice and to vent about something. Perhaps it was because he was easy to talk to and most of the young people didn't feel comfortable talking to other adults, least of all their parents. Or perhaps, it was because he was the Guidance Counselor at Sunnyside High School. Most of …

Seong Fesses Up

Sunlight streamed into the room of the penthouse he bought the last time he was in New York because he was getting tired of staying in expensive hotels. He had moved into the unit although it was still being renovated at the time. It overlooked Central Park. It was Saturday morning. Kecia blinked, trying to …
