"Scott?" I looked up to see him climbing in bed. "What's up, Buttercup" he whispered. He had called me that since the first day we met."What would you be doing now, if we had never met?" I asked as seriously as I could while snuggling up close to him."Well, let's see. I think I would be riding my Harley, looking around at the beauty around me on the trip im taking with the guys." He looked serious but then laughed.&...
“After All These Years?” by Courtney C
~ June 23, 2005 ~ “To thirty years of marriage,” Ginger toasted, holding up her teacup full of whisky to Jamie. “To thirty years,” Jamie echoed, his expression pure happiness. His eyes never left her face as he drained his cup.As Ginger drank, she thought to herself that Jamie didn’t look a day over fifty. That set her off giggling, but it was true. His tanned skin made her a little self conscious about her own wrinkled pallor, but Jamie never seemed to mind. She wasn’t...

When...
“Moments of Synchronicity” by Harken Void
The goddamned, blasted old piece of shriveled wood creaked so damn loud that Bartholomeus half believed it would start a fire under his ass. That would be something. A rocking chair, starting a fire and burning an old man to death because he couldn’t get up and leave in time. Well, it didn’t sound that Lucilda’s chair was any better. The damned old thing was creaking just as loud, horribly out of sync with his own...

“The End of the Hall” by Holly Fister
My feet sink as I wiggle them side to side, deeper and deeper, the salty water and a myriad of quartz crystals sucking them under. I plop my bottom down with a splat on what feels like liquid concrete, but again it welcomes me, and I shift down into the sand until it molds around my whole body.The waves roar incessantly, massaging my waterlogged eardrums, stretching themselves thin to reach me, and swirling my hair in a giant arc as they loop back toward the sea. Something wiggles and pushes against my calf, tickling me ...
“memories this house holds” by Kiki Abbi
Margret looked around her. She stared at her mustard colored walls, the white tiled floor. She couldn't believe that she spent 65 in this house, she felt as if it was yesterday when they moved in. She made her way to the kitchen, a smile creeps on her face. "Edward, do you remember when Katie slipped in here and she had gotten a cut on her head?", she laughs as that memory takes place in her brai...
“Love Story” by Carole Cobos
Jason came bursting into the house, face flushed and grinning ecstatically. Eduardo smiled, Jax greatly resembled his grandpa, Jonathan. Same sharp blue-green eyes and all American features. But instead of smugness, there was humility. Instead of glittering charisma, there was sincerity. Instead of laughter, there was calm. Suppose, and Eduardo wasn’t tryin...
“Pottering” by Deborah Mercer
“I’m just going for a potter round the garden, love,” Jack said. “Fine,” Delia said, with a smile. But though she hoped it didn’t show, the smile was forced and actually no, it wasn’t fine.
