Part 2 - He Says

I hurry out of the carpark and down the passageway to the office. My heart is thumping in my chest. I'm probably late, but it isn't that that is causing my anxiety. Today is going to be an important day. Pushing open the door, I force myself to smile at my colleagues. They respond to my greeting;... Sign in to see full entry.

Part 1 - She Says

I can feel my stomach clenching as his footsteps come closer. It's always hard to relinquish that inner calm that is only present in his absence. I grit my teeth as the door swings open. His bustling gate reminds me of a victorian spinster; an unfulfilled school teacher, perhaps. Lips pursed... Sign in to see full entry.

'NO!' Sam lay there in the dark, his heart thumping. A sheen of perspiration covered his chest as it rose and fell in jerky, uneven gasps. Glancing over, he tried to force himself to relax. Annie hadn't woken, thank goodness. She so desperately needed her sleep. It was that same dream. It pulled him... Sign in to see full entry.

Generations

Stretching her arms langorously towards the sky, she lay for a minute, letting the sun work its magic on her tired bones. What a week it had been: dragging herself laboriously from task to task, she had prayed for it to end. She sighed. What could she expect; the years were passing; slowly, steadily...

I Met Her on the Stairs

I met her on the stairs; she saw me and stopped; or was it I who saw her first? Anyway, it doesn't really matter. To the intense surprise of us both, there we found ourselves. Face to face. Nowhere to hide. Impossible to turn our heads, whistling as we continued out separate ways, safe in the... Sign in to see full entry.
