The next morning, I awoke with a small headache. It seemed years ago since I'd had my last hangover. I run my fingers through my hair and take a deep breath in, luckily, I took paracetamol before heading to bed as I could only imagine how worse the throbbing in my head if I hadn't … Continue reading Perfect Life – Part 2
I barely slept last night. The constant images of Vicky’s lips on my own replayed in my head disobediently whilst I tried to erase the memory. What was I doing? This was not the way I behaved with a man let alone a woman. The first time Jonathan and I were intimate, I had done … Continue reading New Woman – Chapter 2
I hadn't seen Elliot since our intimate moment on the balcony where we found ourselves confessing our love for each other one moment and then where I found myself being pulled away from him the next. I wasn't sure what mother planned to do with me as she dragged me closer to the hall that … Continue reading Elliot & I [Part 2]
The only thought that kept running through my mind was why did I come here? If Eileen hadn’t pestered me to come, I know I would have stayed at home and made up a lame excuse for my absence if people asked. But there I sat, amongst colleagues I barely knew and in a bar … Continue reading New Woman
It was the third night in a row. The third night they’d awoken me with their singing. The third night they’d awoken me with their unnecessary praises.

No matter how much I tried to block them out, emotionally and physically, … Continue reading The Howls of the Night

Have you ever felt crazy because you just can’t … Continue reading Have you ever?
With the presentation checked and completed, I was sure that the strategies I’d planned for Miss Woods would have her pleased. I smoothed the crease in my skirt and took a deep breath. It wasn’t as though I was nervous because I still failed to grasp the understanding of my dreams, it was the actual … Continue reading Our Secret [Part 2]
It was the cold air that woke me up. The slightly chilled wind that passed me was what had me blinking my eyes to darkness. I was sure I slept with the bed lamp on, so I was beyond confused when I awoke to utter darkness. All that filled my sight was dark shapes that … Continue reading His Eyes.
I think I loved him. No – I knew I loved him. The way he gazed at me like I was worth more than any soul to have walked this earth. The way he caressed my body when we were alone, and the way he stole precious touches when we weren’t alone was what had … Continue reading Elliot & I [Part 1]
My mind kept telling me I should turn away and run, but every muscle in my body refused to obey my command and instead, I stayed sat in her midst. She looked at me numerous amounts of times, biting her lip every so lightly every time she took a glimpse at me, but that wasn’t … Continue reading The Job Offer [Part 1]
