EULEGY FOR A FRIEND'S PASSINGThank you for being such a good friend to my family. It seems so unfair that your life was cut short but I should have guessed when we nearly lost you four years ago that you were already living on borrowed time.
Though I was never that close to you these last two decades, the ones I'll always remember is the 80's and early 90's when we we're both still in the service and raising our children. Your children were older than mine and it was a blessing to have them sit my own very young ones. I know they treasure the memories of your gentle nature and kindness and the pool at your house. I'll never forget the 25th Anniversary party you helped my sister set up for my husband and I. I was so very thoughtful and beautiful.
Our children shared many events together; birthdays, anniversaries, summer pool parties, bowling, and later, the graduation of our children. You were ever thoughtful and kind, never forgetting a birthd
THE PURPLE ROSE MYSTERYChapter 1: Rose on the Bed
It had been left on my bed, a perfect rose the color of purple. I stared at it in confused shock. How had it come to be there? Certainly my partner wouldn't have done it....would he?
Confused and worried, I left the thing there and went to my partner's room.
"Jake, come here...I need to show you something," I say to his questioning face when he opens his door.
He follows me to my bedroom, I stand to the side so he can get a clear look at my made bed (yes I make it, the military trained me well).
Frowning, Jake stares a moment then walked toward the flower and touches it gently. "It's fresh not fake," he comments. Well, obviously he hadn't left it as he was just as puzzled as I was.
"Yeah, it usually was."
He swivels his head to stare at me, frowning even harder. "Usually?"
I rub my neck in nervous embarrassment. "It was something an old flame had a habit of doing when we were together."
I DON'T WANT A MATE, CH 26Chapter 26: Secret Meetings and Plans
Two weeks passed before Feral contacted her for a meet at his home. She sighed in relief when her lover called her by their comm unit to pass the message. She'd been on pins and needles waiting to talk with them about her intentions to run for Mayor. Continuing to keep it a secret from Jake had been really difficult as she wanted to tell someone but didn't dare. Too much was at stake.
Before getting the call, she continued to work as if everything was normal and didn't let on she knew anything was amiss, playing the semi-dumb blonde some people thought she was. And regularly, without fail, she checked for bugs whenever she left her office for more than fifteen minutes.
It wasn't surprising to her to find at least two to three of the things a day. She destroyed the most obvious ones and left the more hidden ones alone, not bothering to shut them off as she had decided to never deal with sensitive information in her office at all, choosing to go into
The Healing Gift -Synopsis-
In a world where the main classes are all about summoning, fortune-telling, and magic; where a letter in your name can mean the difference between success and failure and healing is considered the greatest gift amongst all the pain, some fight to survive.
Zan, a girl in her 12th year, struggles to live. People around her hate her just because of her name and title. Her powerful gift does nothing to help that, but gives nothing to defend herself with. And with her power, a mysterious force is at work, plaguing her conscience, forcing her to the brink.
She has to succeed, her life depends on it. But how can she when everything seems set against her?
NaNoWriMo Synopsis: Iris Sunset
Iris Sunset represents the story of Iris' inner struggle to stay sane and live a normal life after a series of unfortunate events. She's a troubled teenager whose life is more than what a 17 years old can normally handle.
The story begins when she meets with a mysterious school mate, Aeneas, but the true trial for her sanity starts when she witnesses the death of Andreas, her ex-boyfriend who still was a strong presence in her life. She is tormented by the guilt of not saving him and she blames herself for his death.
Things will get even more complicated when she starts realizing she's falling in love with Aeneas, the one who protected her after Andreas' death. The inner struggle gets so intense that she's on the edge of losing contact with the real world.
She has her best
