Lunch, Exhibits & Dinner

"All set for Christmas?" Ruth asked Ben. They were in the smaller boardroom where they just had a conference call meeting. "Yes. We're all set to go fly off to Santorini for a warm Christmas although the weather here has been balmy the last couple of days. Very strange for this time of year." "Christmas …

In Washington

They were in Washington. They arrived Friday night and Shandra was relieved that she had her own room. After dumping her stuff off, she went to check out his suite which was massive. She had been worried that they would end up sharing it but there was a last minute cancellation and his agent, Mia …

Bumping into Karine

It was Wednesday evening. He had come home two hours ago, showered, changed and had dinner. He was on his chatting with his mother through What's App while checking his emails. His father wasn't at home. "He'll be sorry that he missed you," she said. "I'll call again over the weekend. How are you and …

Co-Workers Turned Couple

He glanced up from his computer and realized that Shantel and he were the only ones in the office.  Everyone else had left.  It was Friday.  Most people left either minutes before or exactly at five.  And it was summer.  People wanted to enjoy the nice weather. He wasn't in any rush to get home.  …

The Next Level

He sat in the dark living-room, watching as the rain fell, droplet by droplet down the windowpane.  He couldn't sleep.  All he could think about was her.  She was out there somewhere with another man.  Was she having a good time?  Did she have any idea of how much this was hurting him? It was …

Lunch with Marcia

I was so engrossed in the article I was reading on my laptop that I didn't even notice that Marcia had walked into my office.  I looked up when she tapped on the door frame.  She was smiling broadly.  "It's April 12 today," she said. I stared at her blankly.  She looked great as usual.  …

Expectant News

  "Where's Gary?" Maddie asked Karla. "He's in the shed hammering away on his laptop." Maddie looked surprised.  "Why the shed and not the study?" Karla shrugged.  "Who knows?  He's been acting strange lately." "Have you told him yet?" "That we're going to have another baby?  No." "Why not?" "We had agreed that after our …

Ben’s Vice

  Ruth was concerned about her marriage.  Ben and she hardly spent time together and he had become so withdrawn.  After ten years of marriage, they were growing apart and she couldn’t understand why. She finished getting dressed for church and went into the living-room where Ben was.  “Are you sure you don’t want to …

The Dinner

It was Monday morning and Lillian was still feeling tired from a very busy weekend.  Before going to the office, she stopped at Tim Horton's for a coffee.  She grabbed one for Kabir as well.  He was on a conference call so she quietly popped into his office, set the coffee down on his desk …

Love Stands No Doubts

Alisha stood at the window, looking out, her mind on what happened or almost happened between Fabian and her this afternoon in his office.  It was like any regular day or so she thought until she walked into his office. She went over to his desk to leave some papers for him to check over …
