The Call

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 …

Gina Visits Matt

Matt was looking out of the window. It was Wednesday night just after nine. He had put Cam to bed an hour earlier. He had just finished working out in the den which he had set up as a gym. He took a quick shower and fixed himself a cup of Chamomile Tea. As he …

The Photo

"Check this out." Elvira showed me a photo on her cell. I froze when I saw it. It was a photo of Markus and a young woman. "Do you recognize the man in the photo?" "It's-it's Mr. Adelmann." "Yes. Doesn't he look hot and much younger?" "Who's that with him?" "Madeline's friend, Eliška." Madeline was …

I Don’t Feel…

Finding Nata

Nata. Dakar. The date.  These were scrawled at the back of the photo I held in my hand.  I found it among my brother’s belongings.  An intrepid missionary, he had traveled to Senegal to share the Gospel.  He died shortly after his return.  Who was Nata?  Finding Nata soon became an obsession. 52 Words

The Lapel

"Don't be silly," Angela snapped.  "You're responsible for making sure that the guests look good in front of the camera.  Now get over there and fix the lapel or you …

Liz’s Mom

Liz was going through one of the boxes in the basement when she came across a photo of her mother playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey.  She was wearing a pretty pink dress with a white sash.  She smiled as she remembered her mother telling her how much she loved this game which existed …

Cute Talk

“I can’t believe that Luke Perry is dead.” “Who’s Luke Perry?” “He was before your time, Andrea.  Here’s a photo of him.” “He’s cute but not as cute as Shawn Mendes.” “Who’s he?” Andrea rolled her eyes.  “Really, Mom?  You don’t know who Shawn Mendes is?” “No.” Sigh.  “Here’s my wallpaper of him.” “He’s cute …
