Pretending Ch. 06

Trying to sort out just what happened.

Pretending Ch. 02 © 2009 All Rights Reserved Sunlight peeked through the blinds and prodded Connie awake. She took a moment to orient herself. I don’t have piles of books on top of my computer , she thought. Then she remembered where she was and turned her head. Simon lay behind her, his hand on her waist, sleeping like a log. Her first instinct was to jump out of the bed, but...Read On

Pretending Ch. 05

Comfort begins to lead to more.

Pretending Ch. 05 © 2009 All Rights Reserved "Rachel! Rachel, look out!" Connie was shouting and pointing, but nothing was coming out. The SUV loomed larger and larger as it approached from behind. Connie had seen it in the side mirror and watched in horror as it grew and grew, until the grille filled the little glass. Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear , she thought...Read On

Pretending Ch. 04

The line blurs a little more.

Pretending Ch. 04 © 2009 All Rights Reserved Neither of them mentioned the kiss after that. They did agree to Simon's idea of going on dates and acting like a "real" couple. Connie found she couldn't keep her guard up all the time. More than once she realized she had forgotten the "pretend" part of the whole thing, and she gave up on trying to keep a mental buffer. She rationalized...Read On

Connie has an idea, and Simon agrees.

Pretending Ch. 03 © 2009 All Rights Reserved Dinner and a movie did wonders for both Connie and Simon. Connie felt much better that she'd told him, and Simon was relieved to find he hadn't done anything to offend or scare her. The weekend was too cold to do much, although they did get out for groceries. Simon teased her and said she should cook for the next week to make up for him having...Read On

Simon won't let her avoid him anymore.

Pretending Ch. 2 © 2009 All Rights Reserved Simon was frustrated over the next few days. Connie went to lengths to avoid him, although since they lived together, she couldn't avoid him all the time. After three days, frustration turned to a strange sort of admiration. It was impressive how she managed to see him for the barest minimum of time every day. She left early, came home late,...Read On

My Best Friend 22 - Homecoming Pt. 3

The conclusion to Jeanette's party

Author’s Note: Last we saw of the love infatuated couple, they were at a party with Jay’s cousin Moira. A party that was being held by Jeanette and just as we left off looks like there was going to be some games at this party. Jay didn’t know what these games were until he was cornered into saying yes. Does this new twist mean this is the beginning of the end of the relationship between Jay...Read On

Pretending Ch. 01

Connie and Simon are best friends.

Pretending Chapter 1 © 2009 All rights reserved "Simon, would you get that?" Connie called from her bedroom after she heard the knock on the door. Her date was probably here and she wasn't quite ready. "No problem," came the reply. She turned back to the mirror and decided this was the best she could do. Her black hair was swept back into a braid, and she wore dangly...Read On

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 13

The game is winding down.

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 13 © 2009 All rights reserved I will not cry, Lani told herself. I will not. She wiped at any tears that dared escape her eyes. So Dom blamed her, just like Jason did. Well, she'd had it. Let them blame her. It wasn't her fault the defense had faltered tonight and allowed a season-high number of shots, any more than it was her fault that Jason had been hit...Read On

Love Chooses You

Ani gets kicked out of her house and moves in with her friend since childhood.

Ian and I sit in his living room listening to Panic At The Disco. That was one of his favorite bands along with Hollywood Undead, 3OH!3, Boys Like Girls, and a few countless others. So far that's all he listened to I've noticed since moving in his home three weeks ago. I had nowhere else to go since my parents were in Hawaii on vacation and my friends were all in college. Either way, Ian...Read On

Another apology is in order.

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 12 © 2009 All rights reserved "Hey." Lani looked up from her laptop, blinking as her eyes adjusted from the LCD display to the real world. She focused on Dom standing in front of her. "Hi." Her mouth went suddenly dry. "Mind if I sit?" Dom gestured at the empty chair. She shook her head. Dom sat and studied her. She was still beautiful, but she looked tired and...Read On

Just how serious are things between Dom and Lani?

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 11 © 2009 All rights reserved "So how was it?" Dee asked. Lani sighed. "Great, so long as Jason and I weren’t in the same room." "Are you serious?" Dee asked. She shook her head as she cut up some cheese. The game would start soon, and she and Lani were prepping their snacks. The ice cream would stay in the freezer until it was necessary. Somehow, it was...Read On

Three-day Stand Part I

Ruby and Ron get together one more time

The phone rings and is answered. “Concierge, Hotel Royale, how may I help you?” The voice on the other end of the line is the Bell Captain. “He’s here.” “Are you sure?” asks the Concierge. “Think so. Gray brown hair and not much of that. Glasses. One white bag and one black plastic bag,” says the Captain. “Hmmmm, sounds right,” says the Concierge. “Thanks. And make sure he gets in...Read On

Choices: Part 1

Dan tries to confess his deep love, and gets beaten to it.

My brother Zan always got what he wanted in life. Most outgoing people do. He’s the lead singer in our successful university band, cracks funny jokes, has a positive outlook on everything. Not to mention his style; vintage shirts, multiple wrist bands on each wrist (gifts from adoring fans), tattered jeans. I’m not particularly jealous of him, because where he lacks, I definitely pick up...Read On

High School Reunion

I have found that there aren't very many stories here for women....

Jesse was a bad-ass. Not just because he was a very attractive man, but because of his occupation. He'd risked his life every single day since he was six-teen years old and volunteering as a fire fighter. Now, all Grace knew about him was that he was a ruthless business owner and still pursuing his child hood dream of being a Navy SEAL. She still couldn't believe he had actually made it....Read On

Dom realizes how close Lani's letting him get.

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 10 © 2009 All Rights Reserved Lani curled up on the couch as she waited for Dom to come back with the wine. It was five days before Christmas, and the team's schedule was going to get hectic. Lani was flying back to Hawaii the next day, and so they had decided to have a small Christmas celebration early. It was a good idea, Lani decided. By trading gifts early,...Read On

Time for an apology

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 09 © 2009 All rights reserved "Lani, it wasn't your fault," Dee told her. They were in the makeshift break room at the office. Their non-profit was doing well, but hadn't risen to the level of organizations like the Make a Wish foundation, so the break room had been carved out from a former storage area. "I know, Dee," Lani said as she sipped her water. "I...Read On

A surprise doesn't go over so well.

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 08 © 2009 All rights reserved Lani sat at her desk, eyes half-glazed as she scrolled through the table on the monitor. The numbers were stupor-inducing and she thought how handy an intravenous caffeine drip would be. As the numbers moved up and off the screen, her thoughts wandered to Dom. Why hasn't he called? she wondered, then chided herself, Why haven't...Read On

A Day With My Wife

Shopping trip with the woman I love ends nicely

I love everything about autumn; it excites all my senses: The feel of the cool, crispness against my face Taking in slow, deep breaths of clean air The sound of leaves crunching underfoot as I run in the park The wonderful colors of the freshly painted trees The crackle of a fireplace, the smell of cooked apples The taste of pumpkin-spice latte My lady prefers the heat of summer: ...Read On

Dom debates a phone call

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 07 © 2009 All Rights Reserved "Oh, wow," said Dee, throwing her head back on the sofa. "That was great. I'm so glad they won." Lani grinned. It was Monday night and Dee had invited her over to watch the first game of the road trip. They'd won, four to two. Even over the television, they could see Dom's frustration. He had been screened on the first goal, but...Read On

Dear ex-hubby

I am aware that you don’t really want us to get back together.

"As you may or may not know I am about to be divorced. This is a way I thought of getting back at hubby.........hell no we are not getting back together. LOL!" Dear ex-hubby, I hate it here, living with my sister. Don’t get me wrong, I am glad she offered me a place to stay, but she is just too nosy and bossy. All she does is lecture me oh how you were so wrong for me, pointing out every...Read On

A Prom Night to Cherish Forever

A sensual story about two teens, who are passionately in love, on their prom night.

I proudly stood looking at myself in the mirror. I felt beautiful. My long straight brunette hair was styled to perfection, my makeup was flawless, and my body never looked quite as wonderful as it did that particular night. The sparkles on my dress danced in the dim light glowing from my lamp. The dress itself was a glamorous, aqua blue, strapless ball gown that extended all the way to...Read On

Dom and Lani the day after.

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 06 © 2009 All Rights Reserved Lani woke up and blinked. It was so quiet. That was a blessing; Cherie must have either worn herself out or gone somewhere else. It took a minute to realize it was quiet because she wasn't in her bedroom. She turned her head at the sound of rustling sheets and smiled when she saw Dom still sleeping. He looked a little younger,...Read On

3-Day Stand Part II

Ruby and Ron have their first go 'round

"So, how does this work?" Ruby asks, shucking off her black lace bra. While he stows her suitcase, Ron tosses over his shoulder, "Just lie down on your back, sort of diagonal on the bed. Stick a few pillows under your head so you can see. I'll be over as soon as this cocoa butter is melted." "It probably already is," she mumbles. "What?" he prompts. "IT PROBABLY ALREADY IS,"...Read On

Back at Dom's place...

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 05 © 2010 All rights reserved Dom had a quiet, neat apartment. There was very little decoration, and a bare minimum of furniture. That was all Lani got to observe before Dom took her coat, removed his own, and then pulled her into another searing kiss. He couldn’t remember at what point on the ride to his place he'd discovered he'd wanted her so much. After...Read On

My Best Friend 21 - Homecoming Pt. 2

Jay, Amanda, and Moira attend Jeanette's party and find out there will be games...can this be good?

We drove in my car towards Jeanette’s sister’s house in quiet. Well for the first few blocks it was quiet. Moira spoke first, “So who all is going to be at this party?” Amanda turned in her seat to face Moira, “Well actually there are six parties tonight. There’s the Varsity bonfire. Then there are little kick backs here and there. And then there’s Jeanette’s party.” I looked over...Read On

He talks her into spending more time together.

Nothing Gets Through Ch. 04 © 2010 All Rights Reserved They stayed at the restaurant a while longer, then split up to go home. Karl, obviously infatuated with Deanne, offered to see her home. Dee didn't hesitate to accept. "Looks like it's you and me, kid," Dom said to Lani as he helped her on with her coat. They stepped outside and Lani shivered at the cold. The wind was still light,...Read On

Getting together after the game.

Lani and Dee walked into the arena with about ten minutes to spare before the game started. "Wow, this place is huge!" Dee took in the all the seats with wide eyes. "They must fit a million people in here." "Oh, probably around eighteen thousand," Lani said as they walked through the portal. "I hope there's not a fire or anything," Deanne muttered. Lani laughed and her friend...Read On

Run up to game time.

"Don't touch me," Dom heard the woman say. Her voice was cold and matched the dark ice of her eyes. "I think you'd better do as she says," Dom suggested as he approached. His voice was calm and belied his anger. "Who the hell are you?" the man snarled, his eyes still on Lani. Karl tapped him on the shoulder from the other side and he spun around. "We're friends of hers." Karl smiled...Read On

A hockey player goes into a coffee shop...

Nothing Gets Through Ch 1 © 2009 All rights reserved. Thonk. Pahk. Clack. Dom moved smoothly from shot to shot, deflecting pucks with his blocker pad, his glove, his leg pads, his stick—whatever was in the right place. He ignored the ones that got through. He just gritted his teeth and tried harder to stop the rest. The bars of his facemask disappeared, and his teammates were...Read On

Dinner Was Served

To her, it felt good to get wet again.

In the twenty-five years that Ashlee and Greg had been married, never did Ashlee think their love could grow more. Ashlee was eighteen when she married Greg, and now that she was forty-two, going on forty-three, the love she felt for her husband had never changed. She loved him just as much as the day they got married. Greg was forty-five, still in the same physical shape as when Ashlee...Read On
