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, …

Trishan Proposes to Rehema

"Any regrets?" I asked Rehema. We had just finished making love for the first time. It was more mind blowing and explosive than I could ever have imagined. All the love and desire for her which I had bottled up inside poured out like a raging flood. And now that it was over, I wanted …

A Funeral, a Divorce & Cheating

I was sitting listlessly in my living-room. I had just come home from visiting Aunt Savitri after we went to church. The sermon, Compassion Like Christ was very interesting and it held my attention from beginning to end. After the service, we mingled with the minister and other church members before we left. As we …

Tanner and Melania Have Lunch

Tanner was waiting downstairs in the lobby for her. Melania smiled when she saw him and they hugged. "Hello," she said when they drew apart. He looked and smelled good. "No jacket?" "It's in the car." His gaze traveled over her. "Aren't you cold with your legs bare like that?" he asked. His eyes darkened …

Tadeas Goes to Briony

He stood in the shower, letting the water beat down on his back. His mind was still spinning from the realization that until he had made love to her earlier that day, Velma had been a virgin all along. That meant she had never slept with either Akello or Karl or any man for that …

Abi’s Look at Life

"I've been thinking about life a lot lately," Abi said to Mats. "What exactly about life have you been thinking about?" "How it's like terrible traffic and peaceful pathways." "Huh?" "You know, life's ups and downs. The terrible traffic are the downs and bad times and the peaceful pathways the ups and good times." "Oh." …

Elna’s Secret

I'm Elna, a Catholic school-girl and sexually active. My grandmother doesn't know and none of my friends do either. When they talk about losing their virginity or abstaining until they get married, I keep quiet. I don't say anything. The other day when one of them asked me, "So, are you going to wait until …

Parting

She's on my lap. We are facing each other. "So, this is goodbye." I nod. Her eyes fill with tears. She puts her arms around my neck. I hug her tightly. My heart's breaking. We tried so hard to make our relationship work but we just couldn't seem to go back to the way things …

The Last Session

He glanced at his watch.  She was late.  Sighing, he got up from the chair and walked over to the window where he stood gazing out at the street below.  Where was she?  She was supposed to be there ten minutes ago.  Was she with him again?  The last time she was late, she had …

Worth Fighting For

If love is great, then it is worth fighting for - Cassandra Clare As we walked down the cobbled streets of Rome, holding hands, no one looking at our smiling faces had an inkling of what we have been through to be together.   We felt like Romeo and Juliet although our families' conflict had to …
