Weekend Plans & A Possible Trip

I glanced at my watch. It was near mid-night. Time to leave. I gently extricated myself from Sarika and sat up in the bed. "What's wrong, Trishan?" she asked. "Nothing." The truth was, I wished that I hadn't had sex with her. I should have made up some excuse but it was her birthday and …

Making Decisions & Future Plans

The test had come back negative. She wasn't pregnant. She had hoped she was because of her late period and the metallic taste in mouth which turned out to as a result of the over-the-counter multi-vitamins she was taking. Bitter disappointment had filled her when she saw the one horizontal line on the display of …
