Day 9 #28Letters – WHO’S BAD?

“Mommy, are all people bad?” “No, sweetie. Please don’t ever think that. Not all people are bad.

Day 5 #28Letters: Dementia

At first, it’s the little things. A name. Some place. A memory. Then it becomes a few names. A lot of places. Many memories.

Day 4 #28 Letters : Guilt

She’s gone. Cursing, his knees buckled. He slumped to the floor. It’s Gina’s fault! He’d told her he didn’t want to see her anymore. But when she opened her door to him naked and flung herself at him, he hadn’t been able to resist her. Afterward, he’d been disgusted at himself for breaking his promise… Continue reading Day 4 #28 Letters : Guilt

Coffee, Tea, or Me?

This is not a spin-off from the best-selling book. Rather, it's my own original version using the phrase, Coffee, Tea or Me? as prompt for this surprisingly different story.   I enter her room after a brief knock. It is pitch dark inside, with only the light of the full moon coming from the open… Continue reading Coffee, Tea, or Me?
