“Oh, I understand; I understand completely. You are an idiot.” “What are you talking—” I started as my hands, that had been scrubbing the supper dishes harder than necessary, stilled in the cooling water of the kitchen sink. “I’m talking about you and your screwed up ideas; and everything else that comes out of your [...]
Take a moment to just stand there. Close your eyes and savour the moment. Take a deep breath. Your mouth waters at the smells. Cinnamon and nutmeg; roasting chestnuts and bratwürst; incense and licorice. The crowd swirls around you – laughing, chatting in several different languages, bustling to get their shopping done. The night air [...]
He woke from slumber, angry that he’d drifted off. He hadn’t meant to fall asleep. He’d wanted to spend the night watching her sleep in his arms. He’d wanted to watch her sleep while he thought back on their invigorating night; earlier in the day. He wanted to remember every moment he’d spent with her, [...]

My hands wrap around his throat as he struggles. This isn’t what I’m supposed to be here for. I volunteered for service so I could use my hands to save people. Now I’m using them for a more sinister purpose. They squeeze life out of him. I see in his eyes the moment he realizes [...]
I should be writing my NaNoWriMo story and not working on this blog post. I’ve written exactly 500 words in the last week. That is, until now. I used Velvet’s prompt to get out another 500 words just now… which I’ve of course had to cut to 100 so forgive me if it’s a bit [...]
Been away a month. My bad! Some weeks I was swamped. Others, I didn’t know what to write. But here we go! Quiet. Must keep quiet. Don’t make a sound. Don’t breathe. Hidden. Must stay hidden. Stick to the shadows. Don’t move. Home. Think of home. Family, friends, food, fun. Return soon. Listen. Must listen [...]
You grin as if you’re keeping the most delicious secret. You kinda are. From the moment he rescued you from that line, he’s occupied your every thought. His intense blue eyes make you feel you’re the only thing on the planet; neither of you seemed to be able to look away. You were his, whether [...]
