It’s Over

I had to do what I've been dreading. It was time to end my four plus year relationship with Sarika. There was no easy way to do it. She was going to be hurt and badly, something which I never wanted. Maybe that was why I stayed in the relationship even though I would have …

Sarika and Jahaira Exchange Words

"So, has he proposed as yet?" Jahaira asked her younger sister. "You know very well that he hasn't or I'd be wearing an engagement ring, wouldn't I?" Sarika replied irritably. "There's not need to get snippy with me. It's not my fault that he hasn't asked you as yet--if he ever asks you." "What do …

Brody’s Resolve

The sun felt good in his face as he jogged on the bridge overlooking the river. He was in a really bad mood. Last night he hardly slept a wink. After leaving his mother's place and got home, he called Natalia to invite her to come over to his place later. He had tried her …

Breaking Up With Mandy

Rasik Levels With Vajra

He was on his way to his car after dropping off shirts and suits at the laundry when he bumped into Vajra. Sighing heavily, he stopped and leaned against the post. She was the last person he wanted to see at the moment. "Hello, Rasik," she said. "Hello, Vajra." "How are you?" "Fine." He didn't …

Shaniqua’s Story

I used to be a prostitute.  And then, one night, I met a Catholic priest who changed my life forever. Father Ramirez didn't preach at me like most religious people do.  Instead, he asked me about myself and what got me into prostitution.  He sat and listened as I shared my story and not once …

The Football Game

To say that I was excited about seeing Jully would be a huge understatement. I hardly slept last night and this morning, I was anxious for the hours to go by quickly and for the time to come when I would head out to meet her in front of French Quarter restaurant. On the way, …

Bryson Confronts Tessa

"What are you doing here?" she demanded when she opened the door. He walked past her, his expression dour. "You know bloody well why I'm here," he retorted. "Well, make it snappy," she replied, slamming the door shut and preceding him into the living-room. "As you can see, I'm dressed to go out." "Exactly when …

Melania Approaches Matt

Melania went into Home Depot and saw Matt in the section with the lamps. Taking a deep breath, she walked up to him. "Hello, Matt," she said quietly. He turned and his expression became guarded. "Hello, Mel." "What are you doing here?" "Looking for shady lamps." "Oh. Is Gina with you?" "No. The lamps are …
