All I Need (Anna's Story) Ch. 04

The epic conclusion.

I bought a gun small enough to hide under the skirt of my sundress- and a lot of ammo for practice since I'd never actually fired a gun before. I had tried to go back to school after the attempt on my life, only to find that my "uncle" had been looking for me. Somehow Demetri knew I was still alive. So I took what little money I had and made plans to stay in a cheap roadside motel. But...

All I Need (Anna's Story) Ch. 03

The lovers visit NYC, before everything goes horribly wrong.

For Alexi's choice of activity, he took me to New York, a place I had only ever read about. Even with my brother attending NYU I had never even been through the Lincoln tunnel. But here I was, on the back of Alexi's motorcycle. My middle-aged, mafia connected boyfriend was not much of a sugar daddy, but he the first thing he wanted to do was buy me a new dress. Alexi confessed he wanted me...

All I Need (Anna's Story) Ch. 02

Date night; it's tough being 18 in Atlantic City.

Alexi called me the next day, to meet at a certain bench on the boardwalk at noon. He said would wait there for fifteen minutes past noon but if I was late he would be gone. He said this in a school principal-like tone, appropriate for his fifty-seven years but I just assumed he was nervous. I was eighteen, I could easily think of an excuse to not show. But I didn't bail on him. He was my...

Ocean Prince Ch. 04

The final chapter of the modern day fairytale.

In the light of the morning sun, Elena opened her eyes. Isaiah with his sexy tan Hawaiian skin, long hair and child-like innocence was looking at her with eyes filled with wonder. "I want you to come flying with me." His silky surfer voice made Elena's heart flutter. "Yeah, definitely." She cuddled close to his chest as she laid naked in Isaiah's loving embrace. "I would go anywhere with...

All I Need (Anna's Story) Ch. 01

A story of love between a mafia hitman and a college girl.

The rain hit hard through the grim death of fog. The highways of Pennsylvania were known for their treacherous turns and near blinding fog. And in rain, it was all so much worse. The giant droplets were soothing like a rhythm of refreshing cold. Over and over until the end of time; in that moment that would have been perfectly acceptable. Deeper in the fog lay the scene of a gruesome crash;...

Ocean Prince Ch. 03

Isaiah is enjoying life as a human and all that entails.

"Do you have something against humans?" Elena asked as she walked with Kaylinani on her shoulder. The little plush-turtle still looked adorable even if it was just a disguise for the immortal turtle goddess. "Only the propaganda that your kind represents," the turtle replied telepathically as to not break character on the crowded beach. "Propaganda?" Elena walked as quickly as possible...

Ocean Prince Ch. 02

Elena must journey to the ocean to save her love.

Two weeks later Elena laid in bed stroking Isaiah's hand. They were now living out of a hotel. "Tell me about your husband, was he a pilot? I've met a few pilots in my time." His voice still sounded sweet like honey. "No," Elena replied. Isaiah had been getting sick. At first, Elena assumed it was his diet. Whenever he didn't adhere to a strictly vegan diet he became violently ill....

Ocean Prince Ch. 01

This fairytale was inspired by a workplace crush.

Elena had cried herself to sleep every night for the past month. Her husband and best friend from high school had been in the Air Force. He enlisted to earn money for college. Sadly, that was a dream that would never come to pass. He had been a cook (under the job title: services.) Unfortunately, the services department got deployed almost as much as pilots and security forces. Her husband had...

Rain Down Temple Ch. 05

Diego's body is on the mend but his soul is still lost.

Diego awoke to the sunlight tricking through the beaded blinds. Rain Down Temple was so beautiful in the early morning. It had been nearly a month since he first arrived, he had never felt better. Gazing at his reflection in the window, Diego stroked his salt and pepper beard. His facial hair had grown out, revealing his age. He, admittedly, would dye his hair when at home, if only to appear...

Rain Down Temple Ch. 04

Remy reveals his past and now Diego must help him heal.

Diego awoke in Rain Down Temple. The place was a holistic clinic, but at that moment he prayed for a pharmaceutical miracle. His lover, Remy, got out of bed, pulling his long dark hair into a ponytail as he left the room. When the young doctor returned he started Diego on IV antibiotics as well as morphine for the pain. This allowed the older man to fall back to sleep, as Remy then he left to...

Rain Down Temple Ch. 03

Diego comes home to his evil wife and is in need of a rescue.

Diego had driven himself home, but it was well into the afternoon when he finally arrived. His wife, Suzanna, met him at the door. "You know I was about to call the police." The light-skinned Hispanic woman was holding a cup of coffee while wearing a bathrobe. She stood at nearly the same height as her husband, staring down the former Master Sergeant. "I'm sure." Suzanna threw her...

Rain Down Temple Ch. 02

The love story of a middle-aged father and a healer.

Diego met with Sara at the library to work on her grant application. He enjoyed using his passion for advanced mathematical theories to help with his student's proposals. But Sara's attention seemed to be elsewhere. "You never told me, how did your appointment with Johnny's cousin go?" the energetic blonde asked as Diego looked through the PowerPoint slides on her laptop. "We're here to...

Rain Down Temple Ch. 01

War veteran father finds love with new-age, holistic doctor.

Diego stepped through the automatic doors of Rain Down Temple; what passed for a holistic temple in rural North Dakota. He leaned on his cane, the pain in his back was always worse after a long drive. As he looked around he noticed the retail space was primarily a marijuana dispensary. For a Catholic man in his late forties, it was not a place he ever thought he would be setting foot. He...
