New Year’s Eve with Ruth

Nigel watched Ruth as she mingled and laughed with the other guests. She looked amazing. She had called him that morning to ask him if he wanted to go with her to a New Year's Eve bash one of her colleagues was throwing. "What about Uncle Gideon and Chelsey?" he had asked. "I thought the …

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 …

Ruth Goes to Dushan

After spending such a wonderful time in Buenos Aires and Montevideo with Chioma, it was tough going back to work. Right now, he wished that they were relaxing on the beach in Montevideo after a swim. It had been a beautiful day and the beach was almost deserted. They spent the entire day there and …

Ringing in the New Year

It was New Year's Eve and Dushan and Chioma were at his friend's party. It was after ten and the party was in full swing. His friend, Jeffrey and his long time girlfriend, Lynn lived in an industrial style loft three bedroom apartment in Camden. It was modern and beautifully decorated for the holidays. A …

The Dances and the Kiss

The moment she went into the hall where the party was in full swing, her eyes scanned the sea of faces for Daxon. She spotted him with a group of people. Erin was standing beside him. "Is he here?" Daryl asked. She glanced up at him. "Who?" "Who else?" "Yes, he's over there." Daryl followed …

Alecia’s New Year’s Eve Date

"I'm not trying to impress anybody." "Are you sure about that?" "Ok. Whom do you think I'm trying to impress?" …

Jerome Calls Juliette

"Are you all right?" Jemma asked Jerome as they posed for their post wedding photos. "Yes, I'm fine. Why do you ask?" "No reason. I'm just happy that the ceremony went off without a hitch." "Were you afraid that something would happen?" "Yes. When the priest said, 'If anyone sees any reason why these two …

The Slow Dance

The sun was still shining and I was feeling really good. I knew I was looking sharp in my fancy new suit. I wanted to impress Jully. I left my place and got in my car, anxious to be on my way. I couldn't wait to see her. It was all I could think about. …

Joe Goes Clubbing

I must be out of my mind, Joe thought to himself. I'm actually going to a nightclub which I have never done in my entire life. I'll probably be the oldest person there. Love certainly makes us do crazy things sometimes. "You look so adorable," Kalisha said. "Adorable?" She laughed. "Adorable and sexy." "Sexy is …

The Gala

As the guests trickled in, he greeted them with smiles and handshakes. The women were dressed to the hilt in their exquisite gowns and adorned with Opals and onyx while the men sported tuxedos. Every now and then, his gaze drifted over to where the cars were, expecting to see her alight from one of …
