Nellie

I used to work with a very sweet lady named Nellie until she retired. After she left the company five years ago, we promised to keep in touch and we have. She lives with her son, Joash, a bachelor. I met him five years ago when I visited Nellie at his beach house. He was …

The Promise

"If you keep yourself pure, that means you don't go with anyone, I will marry you." Ten years ago, I said this to a girl I went to college with who liked me but I was more into the exotic type. And, besides, I was only joking. She didn't say anything but there was a …

Maman Was Right

Stéphane was in his office working on his laptop when his cell rang. He reached for it. It was Margot. He grimaced. What did she want? He answered it. “Yes, Margot.” “Stéphane, I need to see you,” she said in French. “Now isn’t a good time.” “Let’s have lunch, then. We can meet somewhere close …
