Lunch, the World Cup, Admirers & Surrey Hills

A week ago, Gideon was on his way to Oxford to pick up Chelsey and bring her back to London. He had called her yesterday after he finished watching the third place play-off match of the World Cup. When she answered, he asked, "How would you like to watch the World Cup Quarter Finals between …

Dover, White Cliffs, Deal, Shakespeare & Sunscreen

"You know, it's a good thing you don't have a girlfriend?" "Why do you say that?" "She might have a problem with you spending so much time with me." "I'm glad I don't have a girlfriend either but if I did, I would just explain to her that my aunt is all alone while her …

The New Secret Room

Father Kiesler had decided that he was going to spend Christmas with his parents and that he was going to take Monifa with him. He called his mother at lunch time that morning to tell her. She sounded happy and told him that she and the rest of the family couldn't wait to see him. …

Down in the Dumps

Deandre was playing basketball with a couple of friends. They didn't notice her. Kalisa watched as he made an impressive slam dunk. How she ached for him.

Music Lessons, Reading & Swimming Naked

She had the book open but she wasn't really reading it. She was too busy sneaking glances at him as he took long, leisure laps in the pool. It felt strange being out there. Usually, they would be inside in the music room where she would be seated at the piano, playing. Her lessons were …

After the Rain

Ronan stood at his bedroom, looking out. It was hard to tell there had been a thunderstorm if it weren't for the wet spots here and there. The sun was shining, giving the place a clean and pristine feel. The day promised to be a beautiful one. He hadn't slept well, though and felt tired …
