“Mrs. Powers, what would make you happy?”

Just like that, her hopes came crashing down. Lena thought it was too good to be true when she saw the ad in the Talon Tribune. Looking for a maker of miracles and master of your own universe for call center position. Great pay and benefits on hire. It was a strange recruitment line, but it wasn’t hard to read between the lines. Maker of Miracles was a superficial and sly way of saying that the business wasn’t going well so they were looking for fresh blood willing to accept minimum wage.… Read More

“You’re pining.” He murmured, gaze set to the starry sky but seeming to look through the celestial masterpiece. He’d been doing that a lot lately.

“I know.” She shifted her head in his lap to wipe a few damp strands of hair from her face. If he asked, she would deny it but even he knew better than to address the reason for her puffy eyes. “You too.”

“I’m not.” He grunted and shifted his glare down to the back of her head.… Read More

“This is a bad idea.” He muttered, unlocking the door and letting her inside. As she slid past him into the house, he glanced out at the night sky and could have sworn that the stars were dimmer than when he saw them last. He was still in a dark mood at that was only one of many reasons that letting her in wasn’t smart.

“It can’t be the worst.” She countered, stepping over the empty beer cans and pizza boxes.… Read More

“What is this?” He muttered, blue eyes narrowed at the surprise that his ridiculous twin left on his bed.

“I would think that’s rather obvious.” Seong Mi yawned and looked down at her cherry pink nails as if she were bored, even if it was impossible to hide how absolutely proud she was of herself.

Obvious indeed. In his bed, fucking Shibari-tied with a baby blue ribbon was a man. Probably. Well, most certainly. She was fucking crazy, but not a criminal.… Read More

It took months to get here, even though it was clear now that all the other options were never going to work from the start. Like a drowning man, he had to cling to all the buoys before admitting that there was nothing left to do but sink into the abyss.

And make no mistake about it. It was a deep chasm to fall into, but there was no better place to fall so far. Some people said love was like jumping off a cliff or drowning in the ocean.… Read More

January 20, 2025 – 0900 

Sometimes when driving over the Springstand Dam, Megan imagined jerking the wheel to the right and plunging over the side of the bridge into the turbulent water. She just imagined. Would the impact of the guard rail be hard or would she go right through? How long would she have before she hit the water? Would it feel like flying? Would the car sink right away or bob for a while?… Read More

“Can I buy you a drink?”

Normally, it wouldn’t have taken Roman so long to ask such a simple question. It required an easy yes or no and if Roman took a decline with a soft smile and wish for a good day, he could generally come out of the encounter relatively unscathed.

But normally, Roman wouldn’t be in Wonderland. He wouldn’t be surrounded by strangers in a strange land where he wasn’t sure whether men were allowed to pick up other men in a bar…or tavern, as they call it here.… Read More

“Why?” He asked with a slight frown on his face. The crease between his eyebrows something that I knew rarely happened unless he was confronted with something that just didn’t make logical sense.

Not for the first time, I paused before answering because his confusion made me doubt my own answer. Why indeed. The pause wasn’t in agreement. Frankly, there were a lot of reasons. All of which I was likely about to explain, but the pause was for clarity.… Read More

At first, I had every intention of doing the right thing. I was not a religious woman but even if I had been, it wasn’t like there was a commandment that said, “Thou shalt return what thou find.” But I was a simple woman and there was a feeling inside me that demanded I return him to his owner. It was his fault that I didn’t, really.
In the summer of 2055, I found him lying on the sidewalk baking under the sun-filled sky.… Read More

You know those tags attached to appliances that warn against shock, ingestion, or absorption? Some tags even say external use only. Yeah, you know the ones. They make those tags for really stupid people without a shred of common sense- like me.
It so happened that I moved into a new house with my family a few weeks ago and I fell in love with the bathroom. Somehow in the middle of a 1940s style cottage, someone installed a luxury bathroom.… Read More
