Daeshim Runs into Min

Daeshim was at a business function which required formal wear. It felt strange being dressed like that during the day instead of in the evening. And it was too bad that it was during the week because he couldn't take Sade. He told her about it last night when they were lying in his bed …

Jelani and Nash

It was time to do what she had been putting off for far too long. It was going to be tough but she had reached the point where she didn't want to be his booty call anymore. She deserved better. And it didn't matter that she was crazy about the guy. It was obvious that …

Not Your Decision

“I must tell her that I love her.” “Why the urgency?” his sister asked. “I’m leaving for Beijing tomorrow and I want to know if I have a reason to stay.” “So, this confession of love is triggered by time,” his brother-in-law concluded. “Yes.” His sister moved away from the window and went and stood …

Acceptance

“Stop trying so hard to impress Ariana,” Stefano told Nora. “I just want her to accept me, that’s all.” “Give her time, Caro.  When she’s ready, she’ll come around.” “Why doesn’t she like me?  Is it my color, my background?” “Neither.  She’s just not used to seeing me with anyone since her mother and I …
