Gina’s Mother and Tanner

Gina's mother was still in the powder room when she got there. They were the only ones in there. They hugged and then went to an area where they could talk. "How are you doing, Gina?" her mother asked, looking her over. "I'm fine, Mom. How are you?" She hadn't seen her since New Year's …

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 …

Matt Confronts Gina

“What are you talking about?  Gina hasn’t lost the baby.” Anna stared at him in horror.  “Oh, no.  She didn’t tell you!” Matt's face turned pale. "Gina lost the baby?" Anna stared at him, mortified.

Mirror, Mirror

I'm tired of people walking up to me and asking for my autograph. For some crazy reason, they think I'm Halle Berry. When I tell them I'm not her, they look at me and then walk off miffed. They probably think Halle is one of those celebrities who fancy they're too big to waste time …

Rest, My Beloved/Shade #writephoto
