Life Changes

She stared at the doctor. "I'm pregnant?" "Yes." She had suspected after she had missed her period and experienced symptoms such as headache, fatigue and breast tenderness. She had taken a pregnancy test which showed a positive result but she wanted to be absolutely sure so she made an appointment with her doctor who gave …

Judging Jasmine

Jasmine rolled her eyes.  “Really, Mom?  You’re playing that video again.  This is the third time.  How many times are we going to have to listen to the sounds of the alphabet?” “It’s the same video you used to love when you were Bobby’s age.  You couldn’t get enough of it.” “I find that very …

Adina and Asriel Hook Up

Adina was walking down the sidewalk when she spotted Asriel coming in her direction. It was the first time she was seeing him since his break up with Linda. "Are you going to preach to me about forgiveness?" he asked dryly. "I know you're bitter towards your father and that's understandable." "It's good to know …

Health Over Glamour

Growing up, I used to think that smoking a cigarette, especially, the long, slender variety was glamourous. I mean, Bette Davis looked so sophisticated in Now Voyage when she smoked and countless of other Hollywood great ladies. They were always lighting one up in every single movie they were in. I watched them and promised …

Robbed

In a haze of smoke, she appeared unexpectedly, like a thief in the night, beautiful, exotic and mysterious. She came towards me as in a dream. I stood there, helpless, unable to resist. I wanted to run away but I couldn't move.   Closer she came, her thick dark hair flowing about her exquisite face. …

Moving Out

She stood there, suitcases packed in the small flat she had called home for eight years. Memories flooded her mind as she stepped to the window and gazed across at the park.   They had been so happy when they moved in.  After dating each other for two years, they decided that they would take big …

At the Mountain

Imagine standing at the foot of Mount Sinai and there were thunder and lightning and a thick cloud on the mountain and the sound of the trumpet fills the air.  In fact, the trumpet was so loud that that you tremble.  You come out of the camp to meet with God at the foot of …

South Asian Kitchen

I'm so used to having a nice, big kitchen with lots of natural light and a window that it's hard to imagine preparing meals for my family inside a South Asian Kitchen.  A South Asian kitchen is very basic yet this is where a mother prepares delicious food for her family. I read that in …
