Some Vacation

PHOTO PROMPT © Fleur Lind “It’s lovely, isn’t it?” Lindsay remarked. “What is?” Jock asked, distracted. “The sunset.  Look at the colors.  It reminds me of a painting.” Jock didn’t answer.  “What’s the matter, Jock?” “Nothing.” “You’ve been moody ever since we left New York.” “I haven’t been moody.” “Yes, you have.  Is it because …

A Week Later…

"I finished typing the manuscript," Alexandra told Gerhardt. She had stopped by to drop it off. Gerhardt studied her closely. It was the first time since they made love that they were seeing each other. The Monday after that night, he had to go away on business for a week. "Do you have any regrets, …

The Past, Present & Future

"So, are you nervous?" Melania asked Tanner. They were at his place. She was lying on the rug with her head propped up by her hand. In the background soft music played. It was Friday evening.

Sarifina and Maxime Reunite

Sarifina couldn't believe that she was in Maxime's London flat. It seemed like ages since that awful day last summer when they said goodbye at Kennedy Airport. It had been the worse day of her entire life, watching the man she loved walk away, not knowing when she would see him again. Weeks went by …

Melania Goes to Tanner

Melania stood there in her room, still reeling from her run in with Gina yesterday. She had come very, very close to punching her in the face. Marry Tanner? She must be out of her mind. Why on earth would Tanner marry her? The idea seemed so ridiculous and yet, it nagged at her. After …

Melania Comes Clean With Matt

Melania and Matt were in her apartment. It was early Friday evening and he had come to see her. Cameron was with Gina. Since the child was now living with him, Gina had him for the weekends. She picked him up from the daycare on Fridays after leaving work. Matt had called Melania that afternoon …

Gina Visits Natalie

After leaving Matt's place, instead of going home, Gina went straight over to Natalie's and Graham's house. Her cousin seemed surprised to see her. "I didn't expect to see you until Tuesday." she asked. "What brings you here tonight?" "I had to talk to you. Are you alone?" "Yes. Graham's still at the hospital. This …
