• She examined him with relative coldness, not letting him too close, but not keeping him so distant that he lost all interest. She kept her attention elsewhere for most of the evening, occasionally passing him and brushing against him.

  • She’s different, that’s for sure. Out of the ordinary. Not the norm.
    I hope that’s not insulting.

    She saved it, changing the name by adding a “2.0.” This was gonna be better. This was going to be the one that got her in.

    She huddled against him for warmth. The blinding cold was almost too much to handle. She inhaled and held her breath, hoping the air would warm in her chest. When she exhaled into her scarf, the heat of her breath warmed her face for a moment before dissipating into the chill.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, vet 1 week ago

    She watched the vet stretch Snowflake out, rubbing between his little cat shoulders. Snowflake looked at her with those big yellow eyes and purred, in one of those ways where he might have been saying, “You never make me feel like this.”

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, history 1 week, 1 day ago

    She blew dust off the book like they did in movies and she felt a pang of adventure in her chest. “Let’s take a look.”
    “Sure.”
    “Aren’t you excited?”
    He ran a hand through his hair, “Honestly, it’s not that exciting.”
    “You’ve changed.”
    “I have?”
    “You used to find stuff like this fun.”

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, agent 1 week, 2 days ago

    She snapped her phone shut and looked at Wes, annoyed. “Yes?”
    “You have an appointment.”
    “I’m aware. I was in the middle of a call.”
    “You were supposed to be there 20 minutes ago.”
    Evangeline sighed and lifted her eyes to the sky.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, supposed 1 week, 3 days ago

    I was supposed to get up earlier. I was supposed to have time to do all of this. I was supposed to be perfect.
    But laying next to you was so delicious, how was I supposed to leave the bed?

    She stirred the water, begging it to boil faster. “Instant potatoes, my ass.” Her stomach grumbled angrily.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, cloudy 1 week, 5 days ago

    The sky was overcast, but she still felt like skipping. She rushed down the street in a daze, trying to contain her excitement. Her mood didn’t match the weather. And as much as mood dictates content, sometimes they just aren’t the same.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, tedious 1 week, 6 days ago

    She slung her backpack over her shoulder and blew her hair out of her face. “Great. See ya.”
    “Oh, come on.” His footsteps approached her rapidly from behind, “I was kidding.”
    “Your jokes are becoming monotonous.”
    “Hey, hey, Whit.”
    “No. Stop it.”

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, gameplan 2 weeks ago

    Okay. Here’s the plan. You’ll stay over there and I’ll stay over here and nothing is going to happen between us, okay? Just stay on your side of the line and don’t talk to me. In fact, don’t look at me. That’ll be best. If we just stay completely away from each other.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, league 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    “You are way out of his league.”
    “I’m not. I’m definitely not.”
    “Hey, hey, hey, stop talking like that.”
    “I can’t. I’m depressed.”
    “Well, don’t be.”

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, cellular 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Her signal died. “Damnit. Damnit damnit.” She tried not to throw her phone across the room. She buried her face in her hands. Now what?
    She sat up with her hands on her knees. Okay. New plan.

  • She clicked to the next slide and nervously scanned the room. Most eyes were on her. A few were taking notes. A few more on their cellphones. At least one was clearly dozing off. Okay. You can’t expect to please everyone.

  • She heard the cheers in the distance, the chants and the cadence of rhyming, but she walked in the opposite direction. She had work to do. Now was the perfect time.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, mop 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    She slopped the mop onto the floor, purposefully spreading the grimy water around and close to Jacob’s feet. “Watch it!”
    “Oh, SO SORRY,” she trilled sarcastically.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, bucket 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    The drip echoed through the house, making my eye twitch. I tried to focus on my book, but the drip was my tell-tale heart, my slowly ticking clock in the belly of a crocodile. Alligator? Which was it? My focus was GONE.

  • Bridget Grace commented on the post, broom 3 weeks ago

    She swept furiously, knocking dust everywhere. “Hey, hey, slow down.”
    He took the broom from her hand and she walked to the opposite side of the room and placed her palms on the wall. “Sorry.”
    “What’s going on?”
    “It’s just this fucking day.”

  • She crossed items of the list in a hurry, already running behind. It was 99% preparation, right? And 1% waking up on time…
