Reconnecting With Marius

She couldn't stop crying. The tears just kept falling. Her heart was breaking. How she ached for Marius. She realized now that she had never really loved Titus. She cared deeply for him but she was never in love with him. She never knew what it was like to be truly and completely in love …

Remembering Coco

Photo by Bradley Harris I stood on the beach, gazing out at the calm sea, remembering Coco.  I still think about her even though she died eleven years ago from a severe Asthma attack.  Sadness crept into my eyes and regret etched my face.  She was a beautiful girl whom I loved very much.  I …

Alecia Takes a Leap of Faith

As she drove to Daxon's beach house, for the umpteenth time, Alecia said to herself, "I must be out of my mind. Why did I listen to Daryl?" Yesterday, which was Friday, she had called Daryl and told him what happened when she went to visit Daxon on Monday. "You drove all that way just …

The Last Day in Hanoi

She sat in her room. Today was their last day in Hanoi. In a few hours they were going to be on a plane heading back to Chicago. She didn't want to leave. She was afraid that things would go back to how they were between Ryker and her--friends and colleagues--well, director and assistant. There …

With A Little Help…

"How many more photo shoots do I have to do?" Shaelyn asked Gilles when they were finished. "Don't you like doing them?" "I don't because I'm not a model and I feel so self-conscious." "Have you told Ryker this?" "Yes, several times but you know Ryker. Once he has made up his mind..." "Yes. And …
