  • Speak with Authority

    “Watch your pretty mouth,” the stranger said as he stuck his finger into my face as I tried to back away.  I’m not even sure where this man had come from or why he was so upset.  I hadn’t even said or done anything but try and cross the street.  As he continued to yell and shake his…

  • Vanishing Act

    “You’re the only one who hasn’t let me down,” I whispered.  “Why do you have to leave me now?”  “I have to go,” Sarah whispered back.  “I can’t stay here any longer.  If I don’t go back to college they are not going to let me back in with my scholarships.  I’ll be back as much as…

  • The Diamond Necklace

    “You messed everything up!” she screamed.  I backed up as she balled her hands into fists.  I knew Jordan could fight with the best of them and I didn’t want to be on the receiving end of her punches.  Especially since I’m not quite sure of that I have supposedly messed up for her.  I…

  • Mother Nature

    I thought everything was going fine until I was told that I couldn’t eat for the entire weekend.  All I could have was water or tea for the next forty-eight hours.  As soon as the morning meeting was over, I headed out for my daily walk and listened to my stomach rumble for the entire ninety minutes.  I had…
