The Wedding, a Family Barbecue and…Rehema

So, it's Saturday afternoon and we had arrived half-hour to the wedding which was to begin at 4pm. It was to be held at an impressive Georgian mansion nestled in enchanting 18th-century gardens. I stood there, feeling as if I were on the set of a period drama and I half expected to see the wedding …

Jason’s Announcement

Jason was in his living-room, sitting on the floor, looking over a music sheet while having a cup of hot Kenyan yellow tea. It was 7:15 so it was too late to call his father. It was after mid-night there. He would have to call in the morning. He had exciting news to tell him …

Their Wedding Night

Finally, it was their wedding night. The wedding ceremony had been a truly wonderful experience and after they had exchanged their vows and he had stepped on the glass, the congregation erupted in cheers and applause after shouting, "Mazal Tov!" The reception was very special, with sumptuous food, all kosher, and mocktails. The best part …

Laird’s and Martina’s Big Day

It was finally here--the big day and he was both nervous and excited. As he sat there in the living room of his flat, he thought about his life before he met Martina. How could he have existed for so long without her? She was the most beautiful and exciting woman he had ever met …

The Marcelus Inquisition

When Prunella walked into the living-room, Marcelus was in there, sitting in his favorite chair by the fireplace. He scowled at her. "Where have you been?" he demanded. "I'm sorry I'm late."

I Don’t Feel…

Image by Unsplash I lean against one of the pillars of the past. The sun hits my face. I close my eyes and bask in its warmth. I'm having my photo taken before the wedding ceremony. I don't feel nervous at all. I don't feel anything. My eyes open. I don't feel like a bride. …

Misinformed/Summit #writephoto

  Emily's face turned ashen.  "That cannot be true," she exclaimed.  "You must be mistaken, Charlotte." Charlotte's expression was one of great concern when she saw her cousin's reaction to the news.  She took her hand and led her over to the sofa. After, she gently pushed her onto the seat, she sat beside her.  …

The Cabin

Bethany lay there, thinking about Lysander and his winsome smile.  Groaning, she turned over in the bed, burying her face in the pillow.  She was mad at him yet, she missed him so much.  She knew that if she weren't laid up here in bed, her body covered in hives, she would be driving up …
