(Previously) You could say we have some kind of ‘relationship’, but it’s not enough and it’s certainly flawed. You could say I’m always there for her when she needs me; you could say she’s using me. All I can think is that I want to see more of her and, as if she can hear [...]
(Previously) The third time he saw her, it was because something told him to take a detour and after, he wasn’t sure if he was happy about it or not. Why did he only see her when she was upset? He didn’t mind comforting her, but he longed to see her smile or hear her [...]
(Previously) The next time he saw her was at the mall. All around him, mindless souls wandered; zombies hunting for bargains instead of brains. In amongst that sea of bodies, he saw her: she was sitting in the middle of the food court, a burger forgotten on the chipped table in front her. Her head [...]
(Previously) It started how it always does, though never how it happens in the movies: I bumped into her in the university cafeteria line. We looked at each other with shy smiles, said ‘excuse me’ at the same time, and danced awkwardly around each other before we finally orbited out of each other’s gravity field. [...]

(Previously) He closed the door behind them and turned to find her smiling as she looked up at him. “You seem, I don’t know,” she started, trailing off as if she couldn’t find the right words or was worried she might ruin the moment. “Happy?” he finished for her, because he was happy, and she [...]
(Previously) Together, they unpacked the groceries and prepared supper, chatting and laughing while they worked. When they were finished, they brought their food out to the patio to eat while they watched the sun set. The trees were vibrant with fall colours – greens and browns and reds and oranges and golds – there wouldn’t [...]
(Previously) He’d been leaning on the rail and staring at nothing for he didn’t know how long before the whir of wings broke the silence and his thoughts. He looked up to see crows fleeing from their perches as a car creep up the driveway. Crossing the verandah toward her, he watched as she stepped [...]
(Previous) It was so long ago, but the memories hadn’t faded. Some days they ran wild in his head, taking over so he couldn’t think of anything else; leaving his mind feeling foggy the scar on his chest throbbing. He wondered if he would ever be able to completely move past that experience; if he [...]
(Previously) For some reason, through a storm of emotions, another memory floated into his mind and it calmed him. He remembered that he loved cars – racing them; fixing them up; running his hands over the smooth, candy-apple red hood, cool mirrored chrome and supple leather. The memory faded and he was back in the [...]
