“Waiting…Part 2”

It had been a week since her housewarming party at her new home, and these days she was feeling pretty good about her investment and decision to be a homeowner, except that she loathed the idea of living alone. She had been on a few dates and although Reid seemed like a promising mate, Tee continued to rummage through her thoughts. She hadn’t seen Reid since the evening of her housewarming gathering and well, Tee, well that was another story in itself as he had been MIA for quite some time. She decided it was time to experience a few...

“The Forecast for Lust”

Sansa sat in the coffee shop and while she drank her latte, she decided to check her email, and suddenly, she smiled. She had received the email that she was waiting for from Eve. Sansa met Eve a few months ago while she attended a black-tie event, except that Sansa was on work duty so she knew she had a short time to shoot her shot with Eve. Eve was beautiful that evening as she wore a short black dress with red stilettos and all Sansa could think about was what she’d love to do to Eve as she wore...

“Daddy’s Girl”

I remember when I was a little girl, you used to teach me things. I remember that you were so “into” your plants and how you’d teach me how to care for them, water them, nurture them, and respect their growth. I remember you used to hold onto my bunny and imitate different voices as I craved to hear you make those funny voices with it as if on a puppet stage. I remember you taught me about the aloe plant and how it was so vital to help heal cuts and wounds. I remember when you used to have...

“Messages”

He tried to check his voicemail but there was something wrong with his phone. He started to become frustrated, so he decided he’d set his phone aside before he wound up throwing it against his bedroom wall. All he wanted to do was listen her voice, but the damn phone just wouldn’t work. He’d have to settle on seeing her that evening at the Platinum Lounge as she went there every Friday to read her poetry. He had showered and made sure he looked decent as he wanted her to notice him. As he left out of his building, he...

“Rotation”

He thought he had it all figured out, but he was wrong. She had a special kind of hold on him and he knew it. He tried to pretend he was stronger than his feelings but sometimes cupid wanted to intervene…at least that’s what he thought. He watched her for a few months and never said a word as he resented rejection and couldn’t handle it well. As he continued to watch her from afar, he realized he had quite a bit of competition and he was ready for it. He changed his entire demeanor to fit her and she...

“HER”

She decided to relax before attending black light party and realized that she would prefer to stay in her room except that her roommate decided to have company. She packed her things and went to her other friend’s room which was two doors down. When she entered her friend’s room, she could sense that things were different in that her friend preferred to be with the guys that evening. She settled on a few drinks and decided to open her laptop and scroll although her thoughts were all over the place. She heard that he…yes, he, was on campus but...

“Moving too Fast”

It was a cold fall season and while the season offered the notion that snow would arrive soon, Sam decided it was time to move on with her life and so she found her way…she met someone…he seemed nice and knowledgeable and for the first time, she decided to get onto a plane and visit him. She was extremely nervous, but she figured, “we only live once so what the hell.” When she arrived at the airport and successfully went through security checkpoint, she found her gate. Just as she was about to sit down with her carry on nearby,...

“Waiting…”

She just purchased her first home and decided to plan a housewarming party and it was held the next weekend after she moved into her home. Friends, associates, and a few family members attended, and she was proud to show off her home. “Everyone please make yourselves at home and I thank you all in advance for coming,” she said as she placed a catered platter of hor d’oeuvres on the nearest coffee table. Everyone mingled and she decided to take a moment to relish in her happiness as she had finally closed on her first home. She was so...

“2 am”

“So, are you going to tell me about the surprise you have for me? You know I hate surprises,” she said. He was quiet for a few seconds and decided to choose his words wisely before answering her. He’d been feeling some type of way about her for a very long time and although they had remained good friends, he preferred to be her lover…possibly her husband but he didn’t want to go “that far” just yet. The last thing he wanted was to scare her away. “If I tell you then it’s no longer a surprise,” he replied. “Well…fine,...

“Brother’s Keeper”

She hadn’t spoken to her brother in months since he married that lady…that woman…or whatever you wanted to call her, but she knew her brother was suffering by not speaking with her as well. There were too many times that she almost dialed his number but then she remembered her brother’s wife, S would be a nuisance and would be nothing but an exaggerated problem, so she decided to fall back. Their parents mentioned that they recognized that things had changed between her and her brother, and often times she said nothing. She loved her brother unconditionally, or at least...
