Unfaithfulness to God

“If a man divorces his wife, and she goes from him and she goes from him and becomes another man’s, shall he return to her again? Shall not that land be greatly polluted? But you have played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to Me, says the Lord” (Jeremiah 3:1). God saw His …

Complicated

My name is Marguerite. I am living with a man who is my guardian, sponsor and lover. We met two years ago when I was still in high-school and living with my grandmother who passed away shortly after. I was in Barnes & Nobel and browsing in the Religion section when I sensed that someone …

The Marcelus Inquisition

When Prunella walked into the living-room, Marcelus was in there, sitting in his favorite chair by the fireplace. He scowled at her. "Where have you been?" he demanded. "I'm sorry I'm late." "You didn't answer my question." "I was at the library." "Dressed like that?" "No. I was wearing my denim jacket." "What were you …

Lunch With Shandra

Shandra looked at him. "Are you serious?" she demanded in a low voice. "Your girlfriend thinks that you and I have something going on?" "Yes, she does. I tried to tell her that there isn't anything going on between us but she doesn't believe me." "Well, maybe we should stop spending time together if it …

Elna’s Secret

Kissing Friends

Faith and I have been friends since high-school. The funny thing is that my then girlfriend, Delores didn't like her. She once told me, "I can't shake the feeling that she has a thing for you and will convince you to break up with me so that you two could become more than friends." I …

Arlene’s Job

As Arlene approached her house, she saw Hadrian’s car in the driveway.  He had gotten home before her.  Lately, things had gotten a bit strained between them.  Last night they had had a row because he wanted to make love but she was too tired.  He ended up sleeping on the sofa.  And, she didn't …

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 …
