‘On a cold and grey Chicago mornin, a poor little baby child is born… in the ghetto"
That child is me and now, here I am.
I dabble in writing though I have no clue what I’m doing. But when I read, it’s like a movie in my head. And sometimes, while reading your ficly, the movie continues in my head and then I write it down, ie. sequel.
I like to write from other POVs, mainly due to my inability to focus on one character but at least it makes it interesting. Just like me.

Stories

  1. Slipping Away

    The nurse led him into the garden room and he walked to where his wife sat drawing. He peered over her shoulder. Another horse. A wave of sadness filled his heart. She had been obsessed with them since the accident. “Hello, Rene.” He choked back th...

  2. Wicked Love

    He smiled as he twisted the knife; the one plunged into her heart. She winced at the pain, as the tears ran down her face. She pressed against her shackles, unable to escape, unable to run away. “Does that hurt, my dear?” Her tormentor asked wicked...

  3. This is the life

    He walked slowly through the grass, gazing at the rolling fields around him. This was all his now. What the hell was he going to do with it? He was a city boy, born and raised, the son of a hard-working single mom. He had never known his father, had ne...

  4. Sunday Morning Break Up

    “I think we should break up.” She looked at him, not sure if she had heard him correctly. “What did you say?” “You heard me.” He said, turning to look her in the eyes. “I think we should see other people.” She studied his face. “Are y...

  5. What do you want from me?

    She sat crying on the couch, mascara running down her cheeks as he slammed the door on his way out. She picked up the nearest object, the T.V. remote, and hurled it after him; it bounced off the wall and broke into 3 pieces as it landed. She wanted to ...

  6. It's okay to start again

    She heard the loud music flowing from the other room and almost turned around. She didn’t want to be here but her friends had insisted she needed a distraction from the pining and crying and eating ice cream. She knew they meant well and she had ...

  7. Things that need to be done

    “You are my sweetest downfall.” His words startled her and she looked up to see him standing in the doorway. “What does that even me?” she asked him, a smile playing at the corners of her mouth. He walked and sat down on the floor across from h...

  8. The Coyote

    In the window stood a figure, tall, dark and focused. His hands were clenched in tight fists by his side, an angry snarl on his protruding snout. He stared out at the large expanse of desert and wasteland below him but concentrated on the sight of his ...

  9. Priorities

    Joe stared out his office window at the magnificent view of the lake. He would lose this along with everything, his job, his condo, his friends, everything. Someone in accounting would catch his error, check, double-check, and then report that he had l...

  10. Jumpin' for Love

    “No one can do that, it’s too far!" exclaimed Renee Twist. Vincent liked the sound of her voice. And with her freckles and long brown hair, he thought she was the prettiest girl he had ever seen. “I’ll go do it for you right no...

  11. For My Jeff

    I watched him come down the stairs, all 71 inches. When did my little brother become so tall? I chuckled to myself, until I saw the look on his face, a mixture of determination and pride and fear and sadness. My breath stopped and I could feel the hard...

  12. In the beginning

    Temptation. She watched as it shook lightly in the morning breeze. “Evie!” The petite woman turned at the sound of her name to see her lover rushing towards her. Evie smiled as she watched his muscular figure jogging towards her. He was a g...

  13. Lyrics of the Heart

    She floats onto the stage, a vision in antique lace and pearls, her flame red hair flowing around her petite frame. She stares at the audience and holds up her finger in a silencing gesture as a hush falls over the crowded room. The people wait as the ...

  14. Indifference

    “I have lost my ability to write.” She stated quite dramatically as she collapsed onto the desk. “I will never be able to write another word again!” Vince, quite used to Zia’s rants, ignored her and continued reading. “Don’t you even care...

  15. Doubt

    ‘Please.. Please.." she repeated that one word over and over in her head. Tears ran down her cheeks as she sat on the bed in the dark room. She knew he’d come home, she just knew it, but still her brain played a cruel trick on her. ...

  16. Just one night

    “The stars are exceptionally bright tonight.” he whispered gently into her hair. He inhaled her scent: a mixture of oranges and happiness. She smiled as her head gently rested on his chest, softly rising and lowering with each breath he took. &...

  17. Sleepless Nights

    I sat up in bed, covered in sweat. Another nightmare. How long will those two girls haunt me? Sadly, I knew the answer was ‘forever’. I stared at the neon green numbers of my clock. 05:52 I had over an hour until the official start of my da...

  18. Into the Stars...

    “Sweetie, why are you out here naked?” It wasn’t unusual to find Lydia outside staring at the stars but this time she was naked and that was definitely odd. She turned her head from the expanse above and looked at me. “Oh, hi, h...

  19. The Meaning of Hope (Mature)

  20. Baby-Broccoli Dinner for Two

    “Waaa-Waaaaa!” “For the love of all that is unholy, will you shut that damned baby up!” Esme yelled at her younger sister. Samara looked up, frightened. “I.. I.. I don’t know how.” She stammered, scared by her ...

  21. The Curse of Blue Eyes (Mature)

  22. Coming Home

    The stars were extra bright as I walked away from the church. I was wearing my best suit and tie, which were now filthy and covered in dirt. Then the hunger hit me, starting in my stomach and expanding through my whole body, until the only thing I coul...

  23. The innocence of youth

    Officer Watson drove down the quiet street, with it’s well manicured lawns and white picket fences, when she saw a little girl walking alone. She pulled the vehicle over, got out and hurried over to the crying girl. “Hi, sweetie. Why are yo...

  24. The Freedom!

    It was the big day, I was going to college. I was finally going to be an adult and do whatever I wanted. I would no longer have to follow my mother’s rules. I could stay up all night and sleep all day. I could eat a huge meal and go swim right af...

  25. Empty

    December 26th is the day I killed my baby. My parents had gone to visit relatives down in Charlotte for the holidays. They wanted me to go with them but I begged and pleaded and cried until I got out of it. I couldn’t sleep at all the night before, ...

  26. The dark land

    I awoke from my deep slumber to the sounds of men shouting. I walked to the window and looked out into the eternal darkness and saw the outline of men fighting. Our walls were breached and the enemy was upon us. Just then my lady in waiting rushed in. ...

  27. Party of one

    The doorbell rang. I looked up from my book. Strange, I wasn’t expecting anyone. I made my way to the front door to see two police officers standing on the porch. My heart dropped as I opened the door. “Hello ma’am, are you Mrs. Keller?” I nodd...

  28. Black gold

    The days were long, the work hard, the conditions brutal but the pay was good. Enough to send back home for my ex and kids to have a good life, better than mine. Maybe it was good I wasn’t around. She did the right thing by divorcing my sorry ass...

  29. Thru the woods...

    I didn’t know what to think. I just knew that now was our time to run, as the two men were screaming and rolling about, trying to put out he flames that had consumed them. I grabbed my little sister’s hand and together we ran out of the ca...

  30. Forever without

    As I sit on a bench in the garden, the summer sun beating down and warming my skin, I pretend that I don’t have a care in the world but even now, months later, I still think about him. My beloved, taken from my bosom, stolen right out from under ...
