All These Years…

"When can I see you again?" Darren asked after he pulled on his shirt. "Any time you want," Livia told him. She still couldn't believe that he was here in her bedroom and that they had just finished making love. Her body still tingled all over. She tried not to think about Judi and how …

Bernadette

I'm married to an older man. We met at his first wife's funeral. They never had any children. After 10 years of IVF cycles, they had to accept that their dreams of a family were not meant to be. They talked about adopting and had considered the orphanages in Africa and Asia but before those …

The Sauna

In the background soft, pulsating music was playing and rising in the semi-darkness was the soulful voice of a woman singing, "Ima tell ya how much I want ya, how much I need ya, how much I love ya..." Reyan had booked a private sauna for them. She had never been to one of these …

Livia and Darren were having dinner at an Indian restaurant. The ambiance was friendly and cozy. She wondered what Simone would say if she knew that she was having dinner with Darren.

Deisha and Griff

Deisha was doing her stretches before going for her morning jog, thinking about Griff Cunningham.  He was twice her age but that didn't matter to her.  He was easily the most gorgeous man she knew.  And she was madly in love with him. The fact that he was her Math teacher wasn't a problem, either, …

I Married For Love

The Lapel

"The interview will commence in ten minutes so you need to go over there and fix his lapel."  Rhea was mortified.  "I can't," she protested. "Don't be silly," Angela snapped.  "You're responsible for making sure that the guests look good in front of the camera.  Now get over there and fix the lapel or you …
