Her smile saying everything. Everything as in, Yeah, he’s cute!



My mother used to say that she thought the doctors had dropped me on my head after I had been born and never told her about it. Most days I agreed.



As if she had stepped back thirty, no forty years, Jackie stood in the kitchen and rested her hands on her hips.



For Pete’s sake, she sounded like her grandmother.



“You mean you’re descended from a pirate and a voodoo witch? Should I be nervous?”



The pills might ease the aching, but they’d also have her drooling all over the reports on her desk.



Jill started her jeep and took off down the highway.  When people said, there’s no place like home, she would laugh and just appease them.

She didn’t have the look of a cougar, but Jaiden was more familiar with the nature of the four-legged ones than the two-legged ones.

"Are you two queer?" David asked as soon as Charlotte and Andrew were out of hearing range.

Placing the photo back into the diary I over carefully turned the pages. After all, this little book was almost twice as old as me.

Jackie stared back and forth from one to the other. She recognized a physical resemblance but had no memory of them

“My plan? I had no plans, nor any thoughts of what might happen. Reanna said ‘Let’s go’ and I followed her.”

She halted mid-stride.

She visualized getting to know Paul, in the biblical sense, in every room of the house, and almost died at his next words.

“Wow, we really did spend hours with these things, didn’t we?”
