endless

The hills stretched out before my eyes; an endless ocean of varying shades of green. The aroma of freshly cut grass, lavender, and fresh air wafted towards me as I dropped my bike to the dirt, closed my my eyes, and collapsed onto the soft earth.

pan

My roommate does the dishes more often than I do. It’s a constant source of aggravation and conflict in our house. Who’s going to wash that pan? Who’s going to clean up all the glasses you left on the floor. I haven’t cooked food for myself in over two weeks.

shaken

There was a boy with ginger hair curled up against the brick wall of the alley. His knees were tucked up to his chest and his body was littered with bruises.

encounter

There was a saying, that if a girl went down to the old willow tree wearing only a white nightgown, she would encounter the love of her life within the next week.

I started crying.

value

When we got to the diner, my boss ordered the fried chicken. It was something he’d been wanting to order since he came to this small town several years ago. Amber was sitting across the table looking skeptically at his plate. When he offered her a taste, she proclaimed that the wings at the local fast food place were better. He defended his meal by its low cost. Her rebuttal was only to say, “quality over quantity.”

calories

I’d been struggling ever since I was 14 years old and my grandpa told me, quite calmly from his swivel chair, that my ass was fat. I started keeping a journal in which I recorded my daily calorie intake. I suddenly became much better at math and by the end of the summer I had lost 20 pounds.
