Pretty Mama

Jimmy was flat on his back with his head under the front end of the Fairmont. He was trying to loosen a rusty bolt at an odd angle. “ Fuck .” As soon as he spat the word he spotted a small pair of lime green sneakers in front of the car. Lime green sneakers, white socks and the sapling-like shins of a child. A ratty looking teddy bear was hanging down beside the shins. He put down...Read On

A Night Away for Rob and Jen

A second honeymoon in a never ending love story

It was a beautiful day when I left the house that morning. We had celebrated our fifteenth wedding anniversary the week before. My parents were away and this was the first time Jen’s mother could find time to sit for the children, and then for only one night. Yes, a beautiful day for Jen and I to have a night to ourselves. The sky was blue. It would be warm in the sun but cool in the shade....Read On

Diavolo Ch 03

Eating amongst the wolves...

Paulina couldn’t keep her eyes off him, though he could tell she tried to be discreet. Her face looked wooden, pale, but her eyes…those black orbs glittered full of poison, hatred…there was so much malice in those eyes. During dinner, Daniel regaled them with tales of his many trips around the world, searching for budding new musicians and singers. North Star Records dealt mainly...Read On

Diavolo Ch 02

Gabriel comes to claim what's his.

Pop Tart was a little fluff of nothing. When the windblown blonde had stalked out barefoot from Ariel’s house, muttering under her breath and fighting with the Vera Wang knock off, Gabriel had reluctantly felt intrigued. He hadn’t recognized her right away in the dark until she’d turned and widened those baby-blues at him in fright. There had been a number of pictures of Daniel...Read On

Diavolo Ch 01

Pop Tart

Four months later… Abigail rubbed her temples, her headache growing by leaps and bounds the closer the car drew to the Montenegro estate. Thankfully, the chauffer didn’t try to strike up any conversation. She had much to contemplate. Her sister Mikayla had done it again; disgraced the family with her ungodly behavior. It wasn’t enough she’d taken Abigail’s childhood boyfriend away,...Read On

All I Want - Chapter 7

“Oh my God! This is so exciting! How does it feel to know that you’re gonna be Mrs. Cameron Joseph?” Olivia’s friend Jeanine asked while eyeing her ring. Tatiana had invited a few of their closest friends out to lunch to break the news about her sister’s engagement. “It feels amazing. Cam and I haven’t known each other that long at all, but we know each other like we’ve been there...Read On

Made To Order

It was an ordinary day. Ordinary-being the keyword. It was Thursday, and I was at the local deli ordering my usual - a turkey sandwich with cheese and lettuce, a treat for myself since it was payday. "No tomato or mayo, JD?" I looked at Chuck, the owner, who always teased me. I smiled at him. "No, thank you." He finished my order, and I paid him. I sat down and unwrapped heaven....Read On

Universal Constance

Penetrated by her peerless professor, a young mathematician experiences a tantalising revelation

'Connie! Connie! Come in. You won't believe...' As the old man turned away and scuttled back into his study, his voice faded to nothing. From the bright, cold hard corridor, I stepped into a dull homely warmth, from echoes and cleaning fluid, into an anechoic cocktail of pipe smoke and coffee. The floor was tessellating redwood blocks, the furniture time-worn leather and mahogany, and the...Read On

Loving the Unexpected

The sun was shining through the windows as I opened my eyes. This was going to be a perfect day, I just knew it! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping and I was in love with the most incredible man ever. Not to mention, today was my 30th birthday! Thomas had to work today but promised an incredible birthday celebration when he got home this evening. I pressed him for details but he...Read On

Diavolo Prologue

Dirty family secrets and lies

Prologue Gabriel entered the dimly lit room. Machinery whirred and blipped. His sweet grandmother lay in a nest of wires and tubes, her silver hair a frothy halo around her head. She looked so frail, this woman who’d raised him with an iron fist. She’d wiped his nose, swatted his behind when he misbehaved, and soothed his fears when the nightmares had threatened to overwhelm him. ...Read On

Two Blocks From the Edge

Just when he thought life couldn't get any worse, she showed him how wrong he could be.

Two Blocks From the Edge Dark days. Things could have been worse, but at the time, you'd have had a hell of a time explaining how. Boredom had already settled in after only three months in a job that I had hoped would launch my career. My new boss was an ex-Nazi SS officer, still playing the role to perfection. He didn't like any of his reports much, but I was special. My day always ended...Read On

Lover's Beach

Finally, Jessica had all the answers for her cold, dead marriage.

The temperature was perfect! My hand leisurely slid over my not-so-flat stomach as I began to coat my body with sunscreen. The breeze lightly blew warm tendrils all over my body, increasing the electric pulse that I could feel building deep within me. For the third time that morning I stole a glance at him. He lay on a lounge chair, face up, with a straw hat covering his face. His body...Read On

Horoscopes

I am not the type of person to believe what I read about my horoscope, but I just recently came across one in the newspaper, and I was drawn to it. I can't explain it, but I got a deep feeling in the pit of my stomach. I don't remember the exact words, but the part that stood out was- something will happen to you, and there is no turning back. What was this thing that was going to happen? I...Read On

Reaching Her

A warm light shines brightly through the cold and shadow

Tomasz is cold. He shouldn’t be. It’s mid-morning, summer, and the city is in the middle of what the voice on the radio had described as a heat wave. On top of that, the air conditioner mounted on the bedroom window had conked out two weeks earlier. Yet. a creeping chill trickles like icy fingers up and down his back. Despite how cold he feels, he wishes that he had been able to fix...Read On

Mercury Rising

Orbiting high above Mercury's searing surface, two secret lovers turn up the heat.

Mercury once resembled our Moon, atmosphere-free and heavily cratered. Now, a thickening orange fog shields it from the dazzling daytime sun and insulates it during the freezing night. The peelers create immense plumes of dust behind them, which, over the seven Earth years of their operation, have completely changed the planet's appearance. Mercury's gravity is so insignificant, it will...Read On

Her name is Rosie

Her lips were rosy and out of this world, and freckles and dimples.

When I was twenty-four, I was a well-paid mechanic at a gas station. It was summer, and a great summer it was. Back then, we used to pump the gas, and needless to say, hot chicks wearing mini-skirts always drove away with squeaky-clean windows. Life was fantastic! This summer, a gorgeous young redhead often walked past the station. I couldn’t tell how old she was, but she was gorgeous. Her...Read On

Sally, The Girl Next Door

Picked on girl finds her protector and lover lives next door.

I was four-years-old when the neighbors had a baby. I only vaguely remember them bringing her home for the first time. They had named their baby girl Sally. I remember being taken by my parents to the neighbor's house to meet Sally. Her mom called my mom on the phone and asked us to come see their new baby. I remember lagging behind my mom as we went in their door. Sally's mother called out...Read On

Love is Blind

Sarah is in love with Lee and he with her. All is as it should be in a romantic love made in heaven.

Sarah awoke to the warmth of the morning sun on her dozing face, bright enough for her to know it was daylight. This was one of those mornings Sarah especially liked. There was nothing she needed to do and no appointment she had to keep. She could rest in bed for just as long as she liked. Or not just rest. She could hear Lee breathing beside her, soft and steady as he slept on his back,...Read On

Measuring Up: Fourth And Final Part

At last, the measuring begins, but will Sally be able to handle it?

The Monday morning meeting had been a blur. The real work started today and the realisation was almost too much. I was shaking. Doubt was nibbling me. Apprehension was chewing me. Insecurity was ripping chunks off me and swallowing them whole. 'What do you think?' Pam held up a hanger. Dangling from its black plastic shoulders was a dazzling white uniform of sorts. My big blue eyes...Read On

When He Plays Piano in the Dark

When you love an artist, you are taken beyond whatever you were before he claimed you.

When you love an artist, sometimes you feel as if you are loving alone. The love they have for their art wells up inside of them, expands and nothing else can remain. That is what makes them what they are, extraordinary, with gifts that only God can hand out. Then there are times when the love they have for you becomes focused. It is overwhelmingly beautiful and beyond the imagination. When...Read On

Measuring Up: Part 3 of four

Already flexible, Sally's job description becomes even more so. And what is Geoff's secret?

Another Monday. Another revelation. As per usual, I was the first to speak 'When do the appointments start?' Their faces were inexplicably blank. 'You know? The guys I've been luring here for the last four weeks? When do they start turning up?' I didn't think the question overly contentious though was about to learn otherwise. Pam's wan smile stayed fixed, while her eyes rolled from me...Read On

Part I January 31, 1512 Casa di Venuccio de Lambra, Rome Italy It is a particularly cold mid-winter afternoon. A man is sitting by a crackling fire and is fashioning a small figure from soapstone. The light shows that it is nearer supper than lunch. He looks up as his young wife enters the house . “You are late Vittoria.” “Pardon, Venuccio, he made me sit a long time today.” ...Read On

Animalistic Expectations Chapter #1: Realization

A story of a man's sexual experiences and his determniation to reach the highest sexual euphoria.

Why do some people morph and evolve into such incredibly free sexual creatures who demand absolute euphoria in their sexual lives?  He continued to soap up his body. The water beaded up on his skin as he looked it over. Years ago, he would never even care to notice his own body, let alone, judge it or contemplate how he could improve it further. Now, every time he had any clothes off, no...Read On

Still thousands in the red, recently graduated Sally has to make further compromises to keep her job

10 a.m. Tuesday morning, clipboard in hand, I was boarding the Tube at Belsize Park. How did they get me to agree to this? And what were they doing meanwhile, back in our snug little set up? Fucking on the cold glass desk? Using up the free samples? The way Pam had looked at Geoff over their first morning coffee, I was almost certain they had recently become lovers. I was only grateful I'd had...Read On

Out Of The Woods

Can true love live through the harshest adversity.

It's all my fault. No matter how much I blame the GPS it was still my mistake. Trusting technology over common sense got us into this situation. Damn! I can call it a situation, but it's more serious than that would ever convey. We're lost. Stranded and freezing. We could soon die, if we don't do something. If I don't do something. It's all my fault. The sandy surface of the California...Read On

Snowblind

Dedicated to unlikely love - even in the most extreme circumstances.

I screamed desperately into the white veil, thrashing at the blank landscape with the least convincing punches I’d thrown in my life. The cold numbed and bit into my skin, forbidding me from forming feasible fists while my stiff, unwilling arms couldn’t wait to hug me once more. My club-like mittens uselessly tucked under my armpits, seeking any modicum of warmth. Turning back towards...Read On

Fresh out of uni and thousands in the red, Sally appears to land on her feet with her first ever job

The rule's coldness was reflected in its steely-grey prismatic perfection. Engraved meticulously along its length, black incremental notches numbered in unerring sequence, offered me simple yet particularly mind-boggling data. 9. No more; no less. Of course, I had heard rumour of such prodigious appendages, though this was the first I had personally encountered. I stared at the markings on...Read On

Just A Tiny Spark

When a new librarian shows up, college student Molly's life is turned upside down.

I hadn’t seen her before, and like always when meeting someone I wasn’t familiar with, I became tongue-tied. Though today, for some unfathomable reason, my awkward shyness was even worse. I had decided to come first thing in the morning before the big rush to the library started, but that meant that we were the only two people here and there was no crowd to hide in. Her green eyes roamed up...Read On

Slow Burning Fire

A writer spends Christmas Eve in a secluded cabin during a blizzard.

Soaked! Nothing could be more disappointing than crawling into bed and laying in an icy wet spot. I jump out and pull the heavy brown quilt down to discover the cause of the wetness. I don't drink in my bed, it can't be anything I've spilled on the bed. I haven't wet the bed, I hope it's not from an animal that came inside the cabin to escape the snow. Snow. Of course it's snow, I look up...Read On

My Step Brother Fulfills My Fantasy Again

They are in love, but have one giant speed bump in front of them.

I stood right behind my closed bedroom door naked with a racing heart as the clock struck noon on a Saturday afternoon. I bit my bottom lip as my right hand grabbed the door knob. I opened the door calmly and stepped out. Sweat flowed down every part of my body as I tip toed to the bathroom through the hallway. "Fuck, that's no foul!" my dad yelled. My dad and step mom were a mere twenty...Read On
