Christmas & Wedding Plans

"Are you still upset from your run in with Brody?" Joe asked Kalisha. "No, I'm not upset anymore. I just wish he and other people would mind their own business and leave us alone." "I guess they just can't accept our relationship." "Because of our age difference?" "Yes." "Why can't they just accept that we …

One Last Time

Derrick was waiting in the motel room when Cate got there. After they hugged and kissed, he announced, "My wife found out about us and she told my sister. My sister went to see your brother--" "Yes, I know. I saw him a little while ago. I was on my way here when I ran …

Roark

"So, what brings you here today?” he asked, looking amused. “Do I have to have a reason for coming over?” she quipped.  The truth was, she enjoyed spending time with him.  They had become close since the untimely and tragic death of Rebecca, her best friend two years ago.  Roark was Rebecca’s older brother.  He …

Lunch, Dinner and…

This morning, I read in Matthew 16:28 where Jesus said, “Verily, I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” I sat there wondering about it.  Was He talking about the Second Coming or something else?  It didn’t …

Waiting/Yearning #writephoto

I drift from memory to another, yearning for you.  Why did it have to end?  I thought we were so happy. You said that you loved being with me.  Being in my arms was where you longed to be.  You said it made you feel safe.  My kisses warmed your heart. My love was like …

Chalise

I've tried to get every single memory of you out of my mind but it is like trying not to breathe.  You are all I think about.  Yours is the only face I see or want to see.  You are my past but I still want you to be my present and my future.  This …

Danny

I stood before the shed where they found my friend, Danny. We used to hang out every day, daydreaming about how we were going to change the world.  He wanted to be a lawyer for the poor and disadvantaged while I dreamed of being a social worker. Danny was more than a friend to me.  …

Cat

Sheila stood at the window gazing at the city skyline illuminated in the setting sun.  Below the streets pulsated with life.  Behind her, she could hear Adam in the kitchen. She smiled.  He'd finally invited her for dinner.  They'd been partners for a year now.  When she first joined the force, she was determined not …

The Gazebo

When Aubrey got the job of photographer at Harper Magazine, she didn’t expect to meet Olivia Cromwell, the famous mystery writer or fall in love with her brother, Brent.  The way Brent and she met was quite unexpected.  It happened one afternoon when she had accompanied Susannah, her employer to the Cromwell estate in Yorkshire. …

The Plane Ride

He sat there on the plane, the open magazine on his lap, his head resting against the back of the seat and his face turned towards the window, watching the clouds and knowing that the distance between Natalie and him was getting wider.  He closed his eyes in despair.  Walking away from her was the …
