1: The Entryway (The House)

He’d confessed everything that late October night before walking out for good.  Now here it was April already, and this woman had arrived at the very same door he had walked out. Dressed to the nine’s in her designer high heels, pencil skirt, and fashionable pink, sleeveless top, I had to wonder if perhaps she had just Read More

2: The Bedroom (The House)

It took nearly 2 weeks to move all of her belongings into the house.  I thought it would never end. Everything had a place and everything had to be handled with the utmost care.  At least that is one thing I like about her. But right now, right this moment, I despise her. Peeking through Read More
