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 …

A Bone of Contention

"So, what are you waiting for?" Cheryl asked Joe. He stared at her blankly. "What do you mean?" "I mean you're not getting any younger. You're going to be 56 years old in January and you're still not married. What are you waiting for?" He sighed. "Why is everyone so interested in my personal life?" …

No More Marius

Elspeth sat there, heartbroken. She still couldn't believe that what she and Marius had was over before it even had a chance to blossom into something beautiful.

Doesn't he look hot and much younger?" "Who's that with him?" "Madeline's friend, Eliška." Madeline was …

He had moved into the unit although it was still being renovated at the time. It overlooked Central Park. It was Saturday morning. Kecia blinked, trying to …

Kissing Friends

Faith and I have been friends since high-school. The funny thing is that my then girlfriend, Delores didn't like her. She once told me, "I can't shake the feeling that she has a thing for you and will convince you to break up with me so that you two could become more than friends." I …
