The Riley Boy IV: Remuneration

“My God, this is gorgeous, Patrick!” Marissa said, as they pulled up to the secluded lake house. Late afternoon sunlight trickled through the thick canopy above, lending the entire lot a sense of serenity and complete isolation. The house stood tall and grand, native stone covering its exterior from the ground to the slate topped roofs. Large timbers were used as lintel accents over windows...Read On

The Riley Boy III: Changes

A hot, relentless Atlanta summer sun beat down on the cultured stone and marble paving surrounding the azure depths of the pool. The lush greenery at the outskirts cast dense shadow, promising relief from the nearly triple digit temperatures, but Marissa wasn't interested. She was lying on one of the luxury padded chaise lounges, letting the golden god sear her already honey toned skin; her...Read On

Fall

This poem only available on Lush Stories. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Break me in your arms Where the darkness licks our skin, Where the fire flays desire From my soul and breaks the silence, Where it turns the longing into hope And twists the lightning, rolls the thunder Across the trickles of shining sweat, The kiss of salt in trembling night, Devouring flesh where...Read On

Midnight’s Embrace

A rewrite of one of my first stories. My thanks to Jwren for his excellent editing efforts.

In the darkest hours of a moonless night, she quietly awakens, not stirring, somehow sensing she is no longer alone. Her limpid eyes peer through the veil, searching wearily, hopefully, for he who has visited only in her dreams. Seeing nothing, she sighs deeply, and lays back into her pillow, resigned to another long and lonely night. Only then, as she gives up hope, does she discern...Read On

Our Turn

And every time I hear that same old tired music I see her face again Lit by whatever screams light In a crowded southside club Everyone was dancing and beautiful Because everyone dancing is beautiful Songs about whatever lasts forever Because something always does – Be it heartbreak or love – And I had to lean in close and whisper Something about love and fucking Just...Read On

East Coast, West Coast - Part Four

Sunday morning was grey and cold. I woke early, forcing myself out of bed and into the shower. Midway through feeling guilty for wasting so much hot water, I remembered Scott. Had he been serious about everything he’d said? Surely, he didn’t expect me to really do everything he wanted. After all, he’d left in a less than gentlemanly fashion. I took a cab to my parents’ house on the edge of...Read On

In the Pale Moonlight

I came to realize that the beast that had awaken wasn’t him but, me.

It’s been many years since I stepped foot inside a church, yet, there I found myself standing in the aisle of St. Louis Cathedral with hundreds of others. My faith had always been deeply tied with my family, especially considering my father was a preacher while I was growing up. Later, under circumstances unknown to me, my father turned his back to his faith. One day he was up in the...Read On

Grace

You move with a grace I could never possess, the hem of a skirt caught in a faint breeze, bare legs revealed as the wind rose in its almost silent seasonal symphony. And as where my heart is fitful, drawing restless thunder, yours is the calm before every storm I long to know. You can summon hardness from the soft, find smoothness along stubble with delicate wandering fingertips...Read On

The Letter

Little girls write letters, a woman lets you read her body and reply.

I wrote you once When we were new While my body still trembled From the first feel of you Your essence  And mine Still creeping Down my inner thigh A short letter  Of words meant to explain What I could not The weaknesses you created Immortalized By the stain of blue ink on white paper I wrote it in my most decorative script Scented with the pheromones  Of my sex Sprinkled with...Read On

Jesus Died For Somebody's Sins, But Not Mine

A short story about one congregation's oratory confession practice

God does not cast fallen angels to hell and deliver them into chains of darkness, reserving them for judgment, but instead spares his angels from their sins. Her years of observation and ordinance had trained Grace well. ~ ~ ~ “Bless me Father, for I have sinned.” The lingering stench of old wood and confessed transgression comforted Grace. This was a familiar space. She knew it...Read On

East Coast, West Coast – Part Two

Everything was dark. The light was off and I was lying face down and naked on the hotel bed. Scott had placed the pillows from the bed beneath my lower stomach, in order to raise my ass up. I had never felt more vulnerable. The air-conditioning was on and the cool breeze made me more aware of my nudity. My legs were open. I knew he’d be able to see my wet snatch and worse, the tight knot of...Read On

The fall of Eden

Tired of being a good girl, Eden decides to be bad

Eden was a good girl. Everyone said so: her parents, teachers, friends, even parents of friends. She worked so hard, achieved the best grades, kept steady boyfriends; Eden was a good girl and she was sick of it. After three long months of hard, relentless study for her final exams, she was ready to cut loose, to be someone else, to be bad. She applied a smear of scarlet lipstick and...Read On

Dirty Laundry

A secret revealed is darker than he thought

When I went downstairs that morning, I knew that today was the day. I couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. I had to say something. Lisa and Ellie were sitting at the kitchen table drinking herbal tea – fennel I guessed, from the aroma – and chatting idly. Both were already dressed, while I was wearing a dark green bathrobe. I’ve never been good at mornings – few musicians are – and...Read On

Open Late

A young fast food worker is seduced by his dream girl, a robot coworker.

In the future, robotics and advanced A.I. become a ubiquitous part of society, aiding mankind in all facets of everyday life. However, they still retained the cold impersonal look of a machine until a new development rocketed over the uncanny valley. Grown rather than built, this new kind of being was made possible by hacking the human genome and combining biology with nanomachines: cyborgs...Read On

East Coast, West Coast (Part 1)

Ally meets her father's friend.

It was a wet, windy New York evening when I first met Scott. I was supposed to be having dinner with my parents that evening but in usual style, my mother had another most important thing to attend to, and so it was to be my father and I. I didn’t mind. To be honest, the only time I could really have an easy conversation with Dad was when we were making fun of my mother. But that evening,...Read On

The Trouble She Was In

A follow up and Sequel to Simplicity's Story, I knew I Was In Trouble

Twilight was descending as I pulled up the gravel drive. Turning the key, I settled into the evening silence until I could almost hear the increasing beat of my heart. A distinct tingle was pulsing through me and I sat there for a long moment, savoring the anticipation as thoughts of my beautiful, golden-haired pet filled my mind. Simmie had just recently come to live with me. Although...Read On

Touch

No one can breathe. Only the moon is touching them now. Someone's dog barks. Then nothing. Maybe some quick animal cutting through the night behind someone's house. Everything is dark but the skin of the pond and their skin, their shapes highlighted in pale gold, as if the moon were sculpting them into being, as if they were brand new creatures born with invented memories of each other. ...Read On

Psychedelic Pussycat Dreams - Kiss

So many lights. Like the entire galaxy had crashed the party and flung stars over every single surface, living and non-living, bathing the entire room in warm starlight. I turned in place, more of a slow spin, drinking in as much as I could handle without falling to my knees, overwhelmed. Beautiful. Too beautiful, really. It almost hurt. I vaguely recognized the music. Hendrix. I think. It...Read On

Hot Tub Confessions - Let's Just Fuck Already!

Prelude I had already taken two long soaks in the hot tub, but I would have been lying if I said I'd found any relaxation there. In actuality, it had been anything but relaxing. It wouldn't have been fair to blame the tub. The culprit had definitely been the company that I keep. Sure, we'd all had some fun in the hot tub.

Psychedelic Pussycat Dreams - Cream

Finally, Jenny gets hers.

A thick cloud of hashish smoke hung in the room, partially obscuring my girlfriend’s naked body, the scent cloying, overwhelming the senses until it began to dissipate. To either side of me, I could hear the scratchy sound of a needle as it endlessly traveled around the inside ring of July’s eponymous recording, spiraling inwards and then outwards again, masking Jenny’s soft moans.

Obsession

Nate pursues his ex-girlfriend.

Her hair was shorter. Way shorter. I’d always remembered her the way the photos in my phone did; long dark hair hanging down, pinned up, braided, lying in tangles across white pillowcases. But those days were over. It had been a year. A year and two months, in fact. What was it she’d said? Something about not feeling safe, secure, something about me being the bad guy, about magnets attracting...Read On

A Soldier's Memory

He lay stretched out on the narrow iron framed bed, Idly staring at the cracked and blotchy ceiling, Its surface resembling a map of no man's land, A senseless wilderness of craters and barbed wire. Unthinking, his mind was empty of all feeling, Other than a sense of utter futility, A weariness that had seeped into his marrow, Like the water bleeding from the walls of the trench ...Read On

Tonight he would be the man enjoying her body while I was only allowed to watch. As I...Read On

Ruby chased a tennis ball that Allison was throwing for her, and I enjoyed the sight of my two favorite girls taking advantage of the nice evening as they played together.
