    You kissed me then and I was soon tasting the sweet strawberries on your lips. You opened your mouth and I stifled a groan. You were almost too good at this.

    I was bitten, changed. Blood rust raged in my body and I resisted the urge to sink my teeth into Calvin’s neck. He sat beside me, oblivious to my mental battles. Turning he smiled at me. “Come on,” he said, […]

    My wellingtons splashed through the puddle and I was glad that it was no longer raining. Ahead a rainbow shone and I regretted not bringing my camera with me, today of all days.

    The pins scattered to the floor as I ripped the half sewn dress from the machine and tossed it to the ground. What was the use? No one was ever going to ask me to the dance anyway. I’d be better off knitting a […]

    The branches didn’t waver as I used them to pull myself up the leafy tree. Finally, I heaved myself up onto the platform you were sitting on, waiting for me. As I watched the sunset you took a penknife from your […]

    My shoes were ruby red. The colour of jellies and passionate sunsets. The summer sun filtered through the trees as we lay in the bed of your truck talking about nothing and everything at the same time.

    “Why are you always so stubborn?” he asked as we tried to restart the truck.

    “I’m not stubborn. I’m just willful. Besdies, why would I want a new truck? This one is full of memories!” Jet rolled his […]

    The attendant handed me a towel to dry my face with and then disappeared without a sound.

    “What’s going on?” I demanded of the slight woman in front of me. She removed her spectacles and polished them on a […]

    His eyes seemed to blaze as he looked at me.

    “We’re going to get through this you know,” he said and I couldn’t help but laugh.

    “John,” I said, “We are tied up in the cellar of the old Mason place and it’s […]

    “I was saving this for a rainy day,” he said running his hand over the glass jar that was brimming with small change. The light caught on the shiny pennies.

    “Well it’s not exactly sunny today,” I said.

    “I […]

  • april93 commented on the post, splash 7 years, 6 months ago

    “Don’t you dare splash me,” I threatened. You just laughed and flicked more water at me. I squealed and splashed you back. Water cascaded down your shoulders and you slicked you hair back from your forehead. […]

    “Hey Catcher,” I said as I sunk down on the grass beside him. “What’s up?” He looked at me and smiled.

    “Nothing much,” he answered. “But I missed you,” he reached over and entwined his fingers with […]

    He held the torch aloft and slowly everything came into focus. Around us gold glimmered on every available inch of floorspace. There was cups, plates, jewellery, furniture. A King’s ransom. Literally.

  • april93 commented on the post, pattern 7 years, 7 months ago

    The rug was covered in a crazy pattern and I knew that i had to have it. Yellow zig zags intersecting with blue and green. It would look perfect on the hardwood floor in the beach house.

  • april93 commented on the post, gourmet 7 years, 7 months ago

    The meal was gourmet but Shell couldn’t eat it. The greasy looking caviar and the unidentified brown substance made her crave a hamburger. With cheese. “Are you suitably impressed?” Johnson asked and Shell […]

    We met for brunch. “So,” he said biting into a croissant. “Are you seeing anyone these days?” I looked around the restaurant so that I wouldn’t have to meet his eyes. “You lost the right to ask me that a long […]

  • “Was that demonstation really necessary Catarina?” he asked his tone dripping with derision. I refused to answer, merely glaring at the wall behind his head. “Come on,” he implored. “Stop acting like a child.”

  • april93 commented on the post, swing 7 years, 7 months ago

    The swing rocked backward and forward as I sat there. He smiled at me and raised an eyebrow. ‘You got a problem?’ he asked good naturedly and I shook my head as I walked over and took the swing beside him. ‘Not […]

  • april93 commented on the post, professional 7 years, 7 months ago

    I’m a professional. I can’t show emotion. I have to kill. I have no choice. Life isn’t always fair but we’ve got make of it what we can so I try not to feel guilty. It isn’t like I asked for this job. Is it?

  • april93 commented on the post, town 7 years, 7 months ago

    The town was bustling as I slipped through. It was busy but not the good kind of busy. Today, more so than any other day in the year, people clustered around in sad, morose bunches. Some looked angry. Some […]
