Caught

He watched them. His boss and his woman. How long had this been going on? How could she do this to him? He thought she loved him. Was she playing him all along? Never once did he suspect that there was anything going on between those two yet there they were all over each other. …

It Doesn’t Matter

“Admit it, Jesse.” He looked at her blankly.  “Admit what?” “Admit that you’re jealous.” “You think I’m jealous of you because of your promotion?” “No, silly.  I know you don’t have a problem with a woman being your boss like some of the guys do.” “Then what am I jealous of?” “I saw the way …

Lavinia and Franco

Her Boss

It was her first day back to work after a month long vacation in Jamaica.  Since she left there ten years ago, she hadn't visited until now and was happy that she did.  She had forgotten the verdant mountainsides, crystalline rivers and white beaches surrounded by a turquoise sea.  She stayed with her cousin, Winston …

Wyatt to the Rescue

The Dinner Invitation

Bette Nesmith Graham

I remember when I used to use Liquid Paper like paint, smearing it over the mistakes I made making my pages look messy.  I discovered today that it was a woman who invented this wonderful liquid eraser.    Bette Nesmith Graham never imagined that she would be an inventor.  She was a divorced mother, trying to support her young …
