Chapter 8

When Denise woke, Anne, Melanie and Ralph were there along with Andy. Denise smiled and greeted the newcomers warmly. “It’s so great to see you all. I’m hoping the doctor will let me go soon.” She wrinkled up her nose. “I really hate it here. The beds suck,” she giggled. “It’s nice to see you in... Sign in to see full entry.

I plan to start a more lighthearted work soon, if I can come up with something, lol. I need time to finish the healing process before I... Sign in to see full entry.

Memories of Fear

I’ve never been comfortable talking about this – even now. Sixteen years later, I still have nightmares. Thankfully, those are few and far between. I’m happily married with two handsome sons. Yet, from time to time, I still look over my shoulder to see if he ’s there, lurking in the shadows. Those... Sign in to see full entry.
