Hank Proposes

The Past, Present & Future

"So, are you nervous?" Melania asked Tanner. They were at his place. She was lying on the rug with her head propped up by her hand. In the background soft music played. It was Friday evening. She was spending the weekend with him. "Nervous about what?" "The wedding. It's two weeks away." "No, I'm not …

First Day at Jacksonville University

It was the first day back to university. He had mixed feelings. While he was excited about the new year and teaching new students, he couldn't stop thinking about Kalisa and missing the times they spent together in Kigali. What was she doing at that moment? Was she already at the school or was she …

Their First Time

Melania was sitting on the stool she normally sat on whenever she visited Tanner at his place. It was a Saturday evening and she had been there since that morning.

Tanner’s Jacuzzi

Melania was sitting in Tanner's condo. "Why did you ask me to come here instead of meeting me in the lobby?" she asked him. "Are you afraid to be alone here with me?" "No. I was just wondering, that's all." "I didn't want to meet you in the lobby." "You have a very nice place." …
