Ghosts of the rainforest

A lone scientist seeks out a species thought by many to be extinct

Gnarled roots snare my ankles; protruding rocks scrape my shins and bruise my weary toes. I struggle upwards through dense vegetation, skirting stinging trees, hacking through vines, my eyes peering ever high into the canopy, fervently following the bright swathe cut by the torch strapped to my forehead. Leeches cling in vain; insects bite for no return. I brush them away with mild...Read On

Don't Drop Anchor Here (Part VI)

Veronica and Robert share their last few weeks before the Vietnam War rips them apart.

Veronica felt her son’s arms wrapped around her comforting her in her grief. Robert slowly released his hug and stepped back two steps. Ronnie smiled and pressed her wizened cheek into the black marble wall. She closed her eyes. It all rushed back so easily. The Malibu wind, the sunset, the way he had held her hand; the tears began to gush forth. Ronnie remembered so many silly...Read On

Solarium in Winter (3 of 3)

For the first time in months, Jackie was staying home Sunday night. She needed to be alone. Sipping her beer, she pointed the remote at the television and turned the sound up. Cheers filled her apartment, over scored only by the announcers’ halting sentences. Cam had been a great fuck and the addition of his little girlfriend or whatever she was to him was interesting. Dramatic and...Read On

Biker Babe, Chapter Two

Please read The Biker Babe : It's chapter one on my dear friend Jonathans_Fantasies page.

Leah Marshall was busy in the office of the motorcycle shop one Thursday afternoon, catching up with some paperwork. She would much rather have been in the back turning wrenches on one of the bikes, but sometimes paperwork takes precedence over preference! Leah had always had a love of motorcycles and started working part time at another motorcycle shop while she was in high school. Then...Read On

Apocalypse

We rioted. We fucked. In a tailored suit and an evening gown.

There had seldom been couples as striking as you both looked that evening. He wore a tailored black suit and an anthracite tie in a Windsor knot. You had tried your new evening dress. It had a famous name and evanescent laces of black and white, diving in an indecent décolleté. Your beautiful, slender neck, held high by antique jewelry. You were young and brilliant; sexy, and you knew it. ...Read On

Serendipity Two: Destiny

Life is what happens to you while your busy making oher plans~

Twenty four hours previously… ooOoo “Good day, sunshine,” Pete sang the Beatles song to Tara in a slight whisper, gently waking her up in the late hours of the morning. The marine layer kept the beach city overcast, and the breeze of the cool September air felt good on her tired body. “Hey beautiful,” he said softly, as she rubbed the sleep from her eyes. “Eggs, bacon, toast or yogurt?”...Read On

The first encounter

He stands there waiting in anticipation for the long awaited encounter. He doesn’t know what he is feeling or even how to describe it. He wonders what it will be like, what she will be like. He hopes he is able to recognise her; he starts to worry about not knowing who she is. His head is looking down and she can see that he looks nervous. She thinks she might be but her happiness won’t...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

Roll the Die

An excerpt from the ebook...

The girl was gone. Rolling the plastic die in the crook of his hand, Jesse’s gaze rested on the cocoa skinned beauty tending bar in Roxanne’s absence. Her deltoids flexed as she shook the ice and liquid in the shaker. She uncapped it to pour the watermelon colored liquid in a dainty martini glass and glanced across the bar at him. Jesse focused on his book. A discussion of poetry and...Read On

Strip Football

Snowed in couple decide to spice up the afternoon football game.

“How’s it look outside?” you ask. “Eh, there’s still snow, and it’s cold probably not worth trying to go out,” I reply. “Stuck inside again today, what would you like to do today?” A bit of annoyance slipping into your tone. “Steelers are on.” “Fine. I guess,”  you reply as you flop onto the couch. My feelings reflect your obvious annoyance, cabin fever is starting to set in a bit...Read On

They Photograph

If it hadn't been for the miracle of the Internet and social media, Anne and Kevin would never have known each other. Even today they have only ever met online, although their relationship is as real to them as it would be between two people who live in the same place and time. Neither are in the first flush of youth; in fact, they are both well into what some describe as their twilight...Read On

THD: Melinda Chevalier - Entry 5

Another diary entry from Melinda Chevalier...

Dear Diary,  We are beginning to talk less and less now, it seems. My heart still yearns for his attention and I still find myself wishing things were different. My thoughts still gravitate towards him and they flood my mind every time I get a moment alone. I still continue to dream of him at night but recently my dreams have become more of nightmares where he is involved. I have also begun...Read On

On My Way

Love knows nothing of time nor space.

Dear Derek, I have not stopped thinking about you since you left—I hate to be apart from you. The time we spent together was euphoric and being without you now seems positively ordinary. You are the kindest, most generous, most wonderful person I have met in all my life and, while it pained me to watch you go, I am grateful every day that you came into my life. I’ve never been a believer...Read On

Rhythm and the Blue Line Ch 17

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 22

Almost show time.

Ryan's phone beeped as she and Brody walked to the club. She checked the screen and touched the icon to see Evan's text message. I had to promise to come to dinner with Mom and Dad next week. You owe me. "Smart ass." Ryan shook her head with a smile and put her phone back in her pocket. "Who is?" Brody asked. "Evan. Oh, hey, I guess we're officially official, since you'll be meeting...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

My Waitress

We both got what we needed.

Two Years Ago ***** Lisa was sitting across from me eating Paige's steak while we talked. When she laid her fork down and took a sip of wine, I heard a soft sound, a thunk. When I felt her bare foot touch my right knee I knew it had been her shoe. She wiggled her toes and pushed her foot up, stroking my leg and making me very hard as she moved it under my kilt. I've worn nothing but a...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

Small Moments

Sometimes I don't know how to say things. It's always been a problem of mine, meaning the people who get close to me think that I can see the outsides of things and never the mysterious textures beneath. I can see them, the countless shapes of things inside that spiral and collide with one another and constantly form anew. I can see them and feel the energies they are made from. But the...Read On

The Blue Guitar

A modern telling of the Orpheus-Eurydice legend

While sweeping the hallway, or emptying the trash cans, or making sure the bathrooms had paper towels and toilet paper, Orrin thought about Emily. So what if I’m the janitor and she’s a lawyer’s personal assistant, I’m just as good as anyone who works at Ainsworth and Thelin…she'll see. Orin was determined to get up the nerve to ask her out. He believed that if she got to know him, she...Read On

Journey's End (Two)

There always has to be an end.

Memories. That's what I could give to him. I thought about it all night. He needed to have memories to hug to his heart. Life is so unfair. I know, that's what all younger people are moaning about. At least, my parents have told me that. And I've heard it from other people too. It's just part of growing up to see that you can't always have what you want. And no matter how good or kind or...Read On

The Fairy Ring

Where exactly does magic happen?

In the L&D Suite, at the Winter Solstice “She’s dilated to 8 cm and mostly effaced. Contractions are strong, about 3 minutes apart,” said the nurse. “She seems delirious.” “She's into transition now. She’s likely to be a little out of it. Or a lot. Did she bring a focal point? Where’s her labor coach?” asked the charge nurse. “Oh, you’d better notify Dr. Weems that she’s in transition.” ...Read On

Ella

At fifty-three, I found the best sex of my life with a much older woman.

Ella was a well-respected member of the parish. She was secretary of the Mother's Union, treasurer of the church restoration fund, worked in an animal charity shop and stood in all weathers outside the village post office at the cake stall on fundraising days for the local primary school. I was fifty-three at the time and had known Ella as my daughter's piano teacher for several years. We...Read On

Shania, Epilogue

The truth according to Shania.

A year after I helped Shania bury her husband (we always referred to him as the ex), Shania and I were married, in a church, no less. Shania’s vision had a spiritual aspect that I hadn’t anticipated. While I had some trepidation about this facet and the effect it would have on our relationship, my wife, my brilliant, intelligent, and incredibly beautiful wife proceeded to educated me. ...Read On

Ellen battles with her feelings. Can she let James into her heart?

For the build-up to this passionate meeting, check out Part 1. The sirens wailed out over the District. Ellen stood by the entrance to the Tube, her heart in her mouth, surrounded by crowds of purposeful Londoners swarming into the underground station. She had spent untold minutes fretting over her appearance; would she seem like another person to him if she wore lipstick, or changed...Read On

Meeting Cindy

"Please return your seat backs and tray tables to their full upright and locked position; we will be landing shortly," the flight attendant announces over the intercom, waking me with a startle. I had drifted off to sleep, if anyone can sleep on an airplane. As I rub my eyes, the plane banks left and I hear the landing gear lower and the flaps come down. Lower we glide toward the runway....Read On

Oh, Wicked Wanda!

My first love, a true story...

“Jones… JONES…” Huh?? After six beers and half as many shots, I guess I had started to drift off. As the topless strip club came back into full view and the sounds of the room filled my ears, I realized that the Chief had asked me a question. “Jones, do you like her?” “Her” was a five-foot-ten-ish redhead who maybe weighed a buck twenty. She had a gorgeous ass and magnificent 34D tits...Read On

Token Honeymoon — episode 12

June organises one more extravaganza.

Dan cooked supper while June sat and watched. She had little choice with the chain on her collar anchored to the table and her hands cuffed behind her back. Dan enjoyed glancing at her as he worked, aware of his growing erection underneath the apron he had donned to avoid spitting fat. When he was ready he poured two glasses of wine and served the results of his work, seared fish with pan...Read On

Oh, Mr. Patterson

Jenna Marks has her eyes set on the prize. Now it's time to claim it.

Love at first sight can be a beautiful thing for some people, when it's the right person that is. Cupid struck me with his arrows and I had fallen head over heels for someone. He was perfect, just my type. His jet black hair, with the odd spots of aging silver was always neatly trimmed and slicked back. His eyes were a steel blue-gray colour which made me melt each time I gazed into them,...Read On

Crystal learns who her mysterious lover really is.

Daniel slid off the bed and walked to the bathroom. I decided needed to stretch my legs, so I climbed off the bed and wandered to the dresser to look at the pictures. It was then I saw something that shocked me. I grabbed a picture of my ex-husband Robert and his younger brother Edward. It was the last picture taken of them before they had their falling out in college. Daniel walked in...Read On
