Wishing and Hoping

“Why is Johnny sitting outside in the cold?” Connie asked her friend, Elena. Elena sighed.  “He’s waiting for his Dad to come home.” Connie was startled.  “Didn’t you tell him about the divorce?” “Yes.  Jack and I told him before we separated.  We explained that we wouldn’t be living together as a family anymore.” “If …

Joel Tells Kira the News

"Guess what?" Joel said to Kira. "What?" she asked, looking at him. "Gina has agreed to give Matt a divorce." Kira's eyes widened. "She has?" she exclaimed. "I thought she was going to fight him tooth and nail." "I thought so too but Matt called me this morning at the office to tell me that …

Matt Talks to His Parents

Mr. and Mrs. Tremblay were looking through the photo album. They chuckled when they came across the one of them riding their bikes. Joel had taken it three years ago when he and Kira had visited them. The four of them had gone riding. It was a beautiful day in May. The weather had just …

Matt’s Canada Day

It was Canada Day. Usually, he spent it either with Gina and Cam or sometimes with the rest of the family but this year he decided that he was going to spend it alone. He would go for a ride and then, spend the rest of the day reading or watching television. When he felt …

Our Substitute

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, having …

A Very Tough Decision

"You look bored," Tiffany said to her friend, Fiona. "I'm not bored," Fiona replied. She wasn't bored but she was anxious to leave. It was near six o'clock and she was supposed to be going over to Darth's place. Her heart skipped a beat at the mere thought of him. No one knew about their …

The Separation

Father O'Reilly had just returned from his visit to the orphanage when Sister Hughes rushed  over to him.  She looked very distressed. "Oh, Father O'Reilly, thank Heaven's you're back." He looked at her, concerned.  "What is the matter, Sister Hughes?" "It's Zendaya." He stiffened at once.  "What about her?" "She's gone." His face went pale.  …

Love in the Open

Armand and I are spending the afternoon in a beautiful French rural idyll. It's nice not worrying about running into someone we know. We can hold hands in public, something we can’t do in London because none of our friends or family suspect that we’re involved. We’re forced to hide our love. Armand and his …

The New Year’s Eve Visit

I was sitting at my desk when she walked into my office, dressed in a sleeveless, low cut black dress that hugged her snugly.  I tried not to give away the fact that I was turned on.  What was she doing here?  I wondered.  She knew better than to come to my office.  Fortunately, no …
