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 …

Jabulani Pines for Max

Jabulani felt spent from crying every night when she was lying in bed, thinking about Max and aching for him. Weeks had passed since they last spoke to each other. Why had he stopped calling her? She tried calling him on his cell but it went straight to voice mail which was always full which …

The Decision

He had been praying and fasting for weeks on end. He thought about what his friend, Bernard had said after he told him that he couldn't imagine leaving the church. “You don’t have to give up your Catholic faith if you don’t want to.” And to his objection that Clara and he would be unequally …

Moving to Canada

“You’re leaving?” Robyn asked Patrick, her heart pounding and a feeling of dread overcame her.  “When?” He had just told her the awful news that he was leaving London and moving to Toronto.  The two cities were worlds apart.  The thought of never seeing him again was unbearable.  They had known each other since she …
