I was bitten, changed. Blood rust raged in my body and I resisted the urge to sink my teeth into Calvin’s neck. He sat beside me, oblivious to my mental battles. Turning he smiled at me. “Come on,” he said, “lets go get something to eat.” I laughed shakily and nodded. If only he knew how hungry I was…Posted By april93 On 04.12.2012 @ 3:54 am
The pins scattered to the floor as I ripped the half sewn dress from the machine and tossed it to the ground. What was the use? No one was ever going to ask me to the dance anyway. I’d be better off knitting a pair of seat pants for the rest of lonely existence.Posted By april93 On 04.10.2012 @ 2:28 am
The branches didn’t waver as I used them to pull myself up the leafy tree. Finally, I heaved myself up onto the platform you were sitting on, waiting for me. As I watched the sunset you took a penknife from your jeans pocket and began carving our initals into one of the brances. I was so in love with you that day.Posted By april93 On 04.07.2012 @ 12:13 pm
The attendant handed me a towel to dry my face with and then disappeared without a sound.
“What’s going on?” I demanded of the slight woman in front of me. She removed her spectacles and polished them on a small rag she took from her pocket.
“All in good time, dear,” she answeresd.Posted By april93 On 04.02.2012 @ 1:30 pm
His eyes seemed to blaze as he looked at me.
“We’re going to get through this you know,” he said and I couldn’t help but laugh.
“John,” I said, “We are tied up in the cellar of the old Mason place and it’s about to be set on fire. What the hell makes you think that we are going to be okay?”Posted By april93 On 04.02.2012 @ 3:30 am
“I was saving this for a rainy day,” he said running his hand over the glass jar that was brimming with small change. The light caught on the shiny pennies.
“Well it’s not exactly sunny today,” I said.
“I don’t know how many more rainy days I’m going to get,” he answered and raised the jar to smash it.Posted By april93 On 03.30.2012 @ 4:40 pm
“Don’t you dare splash me,” I threatened. You just laughed and flicked more water at me. I squealed and splashed you back. Water cascaded down your shoulders and you slicked you hair back from your forehead.
“Just you wait,” you said through laughter and I attempted to swim away.Posted By april93 On 03.30.2012 @ 8:58 am
“Hey Catcher,” I said as I sunk down on the grass beside him. “What’s up?” He looked at me and smiled.
“Nothing much,” he answered. “But I missed you,” he reached over and entwined his fingers with mine.
“I only went to get a glass of water. I was gone like five minutes,” I said.
“Exactly,” he said and raised our joined hands to press a faint kiss to my knuckle.Posted By april93 On 03.28.2012 @ 2:40 am
The meal was gourmet but Shell couldn’t eat it. The greasy looking caviar and the unidentified brown substance made her crave a hamburger. With cheese. “Are you suitably impressed?” Johnson asked and Shell attempted to smile back at him. “Of course,” she answered and braved a bite of passion fruit.Posted By april93 On 03.10.2012 @ 1:55 pm
We met for brunch. “So,” he said biting into a croissant. “Are you seeing anyone these days?” I looked around the restaurant so that I wouldn’t have to meet his eyes. “You lost the right to ask me that a long time ago Jackson.” I said, my tone as hard as my eyes.Posted By april93 On 03.08.2012 @ 6:21 pm
The town was bustling as I slipped through. It was busy but not the good kind of busy. Today, more so than any other day in the year, people clustered around in sad, morose bunches. Some looked angry. Some looked sad. Ahead of me I could see him. He was with the others from outside the town and he didn’t notice me watching. He never did. We weren’t from the same place.Posted By april93 On 03.04.2012 @ 1:58 pm
‘You need medical assistance?’ The fireman asked gesturing towards the ambulance where the others were crowded around. I shook my head.
‘I think that I’m fine,’ I answered. My throat felt sore from the exposure to the smoke but I definetly didn’t want to have to face the others just yet.Posted By april93 On 02.22.2012 @ 4:31 pm
