wintertrip

Winter Trip It is winter time and I am on a short vacation in the States. I have booked a lovely lodge in the mountains, far away from any city or village to get some time to relax. It’s my time to find some rest after a long year of working. My only plans are to enjoy the surrounding mountains and forest. And also take some walks and read some books that I have brought with me. This...Read On

Rhythm and the Blue Line Ch 19

More stress means more stress relief.

Ryan sat at her desk, willing the time to pass. It was Friday and she was itching to get out of the office. She'd been distracted all day, thinking about the gig the following night. Plus, she wanted to see Brody. She hadn't seen him since Sunday and smiled at the memory. They had eventually worked off enough stress that she had slept until after ten in the morning. Brody had been gone...Read On

A little bit of stress release

Ryan laughed to herself as she hung up the phone. She did feel a little guilty about conning Brody into bringing her food, but she reminded herself that they had had plans, and he likely would have made dinner anyway. This was a simple matter of timing and location. She sat for a minute with her eyes closed until she heard a knock on the door. With a groan, she dragged herself off the couch...Read On

A Gilded Cage

Can a bird still fly in a gilded cage?

‘He held her, arms captive behind her back, her naked breasts pressed against his chest. Her nipples hard as stone, was that from the cool water or his hot body? It didn’t matter, he would take her here…’ “There is Cayo Lobos, just up ahead.” Brian’s voice squawked in my headset. I closed my tablet where I had been writing and looked ahead. I could see the small island with...Read On

Brody can handle it.

Brody tromped into the dressing room after practice. It had been a good day so far, he thought. He'd talked with his parents and they were coming East for Christmas, along with a couple of his siblings. He hoped Ryan would have a chance to meet them. They hadn't talked much about it yet, but he assumed she'd be spending the day with her family. Still, with his family staying for a few days...Read On

Rhythm and the Blue Line Ch 16

Trouble with the band.

Ryan gave herself a mental shake as she got her guitar out. It was Saturday, and in seven days, they'd be headlining at the 9:30 Club. She thought she must be excited; she kept telling herself the butterflies in her stomach meant she was excited. She chatted with Lara and Mitch as they got ready. Nate came in a few minutes later, and Ryan was surprised not to see Jason with him. Mitch...Read On

Third Wheel Blues

A skiing holiday with your best friends sounds great, unless you end up the third wheel

Snow crunched under the tyres of the four by four as Tim pulled up onto the driveway outside the chalet. “Here we go,” he said. He leaned over to Fiona in the passenger seat and kissed her on the cheek before they both giggled and flung the doors open. In the back seat Lilly pulled her shawl closer around her shoulders. Why had she even bothered to come? She was selfish, that’s what it was....Read On

Horses in the City Ch 07

A new Christmas for Luke and Emma

Her puzzlement grew as they walked closer to her apartment. She'd expected that he might call a cab to go to his place after his words about sitting by a tree. Yet he continued walking down the sidewalk, turning onto her street, and saying nothing. Well, if his idea of a tree is a spider plant, then I guess we'll go to my place. Luke opened the door to her building and as they went up...Read On

Tuscan Break

The first meeting of an on-line lover.

The warm Tuscan sun had finally moved gracefully on her way leaving the air to freshen with the onset of evening. I knew that you would be here soon from your arduous flight from New York and my heart skipped a beat in anticipation. I had already been here for a day and a half to acclimatise to the weather, glad that I had left the English rain and wind behind. I had been shopping in the...Read On

Horses in the City Ch 06

Christmas is coming.

As Christmas approached, Emma found herself ever busier at the diner. One of the waitresses slipped and fractured her leg, and Millie couldn't find anyone to cover, so everyone worked extra hours. Luke was deep in his novel when he wasn't driving the carriage, and their time was limited, although he made a point of walking her home after her shift. It wasn't much, but Luke would come up and...Read On

The Power Of The Moon ch.7

The end to a begining...

"Matty, I am going to miss you so much!" Grace said a tear rolling down her face as she held him close to her. "Don't worry; as long as you look at the moon each and every night I am sure we will be just fine!" Matty said trying not to let her see him cry. Grace just nodded and stepped away letting him pick up his bag. She stood there looking at him hugging herself. All Matty could do was...Read On

Horses in the City Ch 05

Emma and Luke share their stories.

Emma was too busy to reflect on her day with Luke, although she wanted to. Those kisses, she thought, bore particular reflecting. She smiled at herself. What's gotten into you? Even she knew the answer: Luke. The bulk of the shift flew by as Emma, Millie, and the other two waitresses dealt with the crowd. When things calmed down, one of the other girls begged Millie to go home, and...Read On

A new start. The love story of a sub pt7

Kelly sets her new life with her love

********** Thank again for the priceless help of NaughtyAnn. I suggest to read the previous parts before this. ********** I was standing there in the slave position and I had taken her request as a test on my will power. Also I was strong in my determination to stay there without making a move. The time passed and, after several hours, my legs began to go numb. Thinking to myself that...Read On

Ryan's turn to go to a game.

The next night, Ryan was sitting with her guitar, deep into a song when she heard Lara come in. "So, how's it going with the boyfriend?" Ryan looked up to see her friend leaning against the wall, a gleam in her eyes. "It's going fine, thanks." Ryan went back to her song and hid a grin, knowing the neutral response would drive Lara crazy. "Oh, come on. There must be more than that." ...Read On

One Night of Passion

We had been staring at each other all night. The looks were driving me insane. He was tall, tanned and had the nicest smile I had ever seen. I was in my favourite bar with some of the ladies from work as we normally did on a Friday night, and I had seen him a few times but for some reason this one was different. The waitress brought over our drinks and placed them on the table. She handed me...Read On

Rhythm and the Blue Line Ch 14

Brody's friend questions his motives.

Three days later, on a game-free Tuesday night, Brody whistled as he flipped a zucchini pancake over. Mark eyed the contents of the pan warily. "What is that?" "A zucchini pancake with angel hair pasta and a few other things. It's like a frittata." Brody sprinkled some salt and pepper on it, flipped it again. "How the hell do you come up with stuff like that?" "Saw it in a...Read On

Horses in the City Ch 04

Emma tells Luke her story.

The next day, Luke arrived early at the stable and began hitching up the horses. He'd done it so often that he was able to let his thoughts wander, and they wandered to Emma. What would she say, he wondered. What would he tell her about himself? He'd been distracted ever since he'd proposed they talk, and hadn't slept well. Writing had been an exercise in futility. None of it had been helped...Read On

Sister Celeste: Angel of Mercy -- Chapters 4 - End

Celeste and Mr. B find happiness in Camp Paradise.

Chapter 4 When I returned on Thursday evening, I found a troubled man. He had stayed motivated through Wednesday morning, but had spent the past day in a funk. "This isn't bad," I said as we ate another excellent dinner of venison tenderloins marinated in Teriyaki sauce and served over a bed of noodles with asparagus on the side. This time dinner was accompanied by a Cabernet...Read On

Rhythm and the Blue Line Ch 13

Ryan finally tells someone about Brody.

A week later, Ryan was on the UMD campus. She walked over to the statue of the diamondback terrapin, symbol of the school's teams, and rubbed its head. The week had been hectic, including a tense dinner with her parents, and it felt like it was the first time in days she'd even been able to take a deep breath. "So, let's see." She patted the terrapin's head again. "In the last week, I've...Read On

Emma has to face her past.

A week later, the diner was busy and one of the other waitresses was sick, so Emma came in early to help. She hadn't minded; since her day with Luke, she'd been in a wonderful mood. They'd gone out for a little while before her shift today, and he'd kissed her before saying good-bye. A light, curious kiss that had made her feel dizzy with delight. Even the piano in her apartment didn't seem...Read On

Sister Celeste: Angel of Mercy -- Chapters 2 and 3

Celeste works her magic but gets charmed by Mr. B.

Chapter 2 For the next visit, I arrived a little earlier, hoping to see the place with some daylight remaining, but of course, the sun also set a little earlier, so I caught the tail end of twilight. The place still looked gloomy and then my headlights fell on a gutted deer hanging from a crossbeam between two poles. I had neighbors that hunted when I was growing up and I had seen their...Read On

Emma takes a chance.

"What'd you tell him?" Millie jerked her head in Sol's direction. "Looked like he might jump over the table for that salt." Emma reached for the coffee carafe. "I told him you put extra salt in the hash browns." "Good one!" Millie laughed, almost a cackle, and patted Emma's arm. "And he believed you!" Emma shrugged. "This time, anyway." "And did I see you smile over there?" Millie...Read On

The Power of The Moon ch.6

What could happen next?

Matty sat on the kitchen counter staring down at his feet. It was the day after the incident between him and Grace. He heard Landon wake up and walk down the hall and into the kitchen. "Hey man, wanna play some videogames? I bought the new Assassin Creed game." Landon looked at him. His face showed he was pissed off at someone. And he was not in the mood to play any game what so ever. ...Read On

Luke wonders about Emma.

Horses in the City © 2010 All rights reserved Prologue "Emma, what are you talking about?" Lila Hutchins stared at her sister, unable to comprehend what she'd just heard. They were at a Christmas party but Lila barely registered the lights, the decorations, or the songs. Emma's words had blocked everything else out. "Just what I said, Lila. I don't think it will work with the two of...Read On

No Love to Make

When a flame dies, another one is lit.

Steve and I just had a massive row and now I'm sitting in this bar alone, drowning my anger and sorrow in Vodka. We fight a lot these days. It's kind of become a habit, but this time was different. This time we both threw our hands up after a while and gave up. He tearfully went to bed and I ended up here. I look around and my heart sinks. Look at everyone. They're all out with their...Read On

Sister Celeste: Angel of Mercy -- Ch. 1

Sister Celeste surrenders to the beast.

This is a love story, so it's long and not full of sex. But this is a prequel to Sister Celeste: Snake Charmer. You will have a better understanding of Celeste's career if you read that first. I'm writing from the POV of a woman, which I don't feel particularly comfortable with, but you can be the judge of whether she is plausible. Chapter 1 I hadn't been practicing long when Dr. F showed...Read On

Almost...

Matty ran quickly after Grace meeting her right outside his door. She was laughing hard, tears rolling down her cheeks. "What is so funny?" He asked pushing her up against the door and moving his face very close to hers. "I tried to open the door and it was locked. I thought that it would open so I took a step and I ran into the door!" Grace said laughing more which forced Matty to laugh....Read On

Rhythm and the Blue Line Ch 12

Negotiations pay off.

Brody debated what they might do now that the gig was over. It was fall, so a lot of places closed early. On the other hand, the weather was still decent, so he suggested they go to Old Town Alexandria. Ryan agreed, and he waited while she changed, musing over what Mark, Hilary and even Bax had been saying for the last few days. True, he wouldn't mind being more than friends with Ryan....Read On

Matty and Grace become closer...

Sorry it has been so long since I have written about these two but Holidays are crazy! Grace and Matty's date had been perfect. He had been standing right outside her office building, with two cups of hot coco with way too many marshmallows on the top. They had walked through the park that was between her apartment and her office. It started to rain, and quickly turned into snow. Matty...Read On

Showtime!

Brody waited for Mark and Hilary near the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro station. He was looking forward to the show and seeing Ryan perform. When he thought about growing up, he always remembered music in the background. Classical, rock, blues, even some punk—his parents had played a little bit of everything, and he and his siblings had all added their contributions as they'd grown up. He'd tried...Read On
