It Just Hit Me

We're in the park on a Sunday afternoon. There is a hint of rain but the sun is shining. I watch as it gently kisses her lovely face. I stop suddenly and stare at her because it just hit me. I'm in love with this amazing woman. How do I know that? Simple. Without her …

Witnessing/Within #writephoto

Hidden in the shadows Secure in my fortress I survey the world outside It looks hostile, frightening, intimidating. Dare I venture out? What will I encounter this time? Opposition?  Ridicule?

The Girl Least Likely…

When he came into the library, I panicked.  I was afraid that if he saw me, he would come over and say hi and I was petrified that I wouldn’t be able to hide my feelings from him.  He was the most popular guy on campus and I was—well, the girl least likely to attract …

The Ball

The Age Difference

"I wish you were going with me," Michelle sighed, looking at Connie as she lay on the sofa with her injured leg elevated on a couple of cushions. "Even if I weren't laid up here with a bad leg, I wouldn't go with you," she told her. Michelle's eyes widened in surprise.  "Why not?" "You're …

Resistance is Futile

After a few moments into the movie, she switched off the television.  No use in wasting time watching a film that didn't synchronize with the sound.  Besides, she was distracted. She couldn't stop thinking about Jude Beresford. When they first met, she couldn't stand him.  He oozed a sensuality that was palpable. While it got …

Picky Eaters

"Come on, doesn't this look yummy?" It was a mixture of vegetables. He covered his nose and mouth, making it clear that he didn't agree with Mommy that the yucky orange thing she was holding out to him on the spoon was edible.   "Just try one spoonful, Carson" she begged. Carson shook his head. She …
