    Just one night part II

    Whatever you do, do not research the disease now bound and determined to kill you. It’s origins will leave you perplexed and hearing “scientists” deny it’s existence, while you are taking copious amounts of medication, daily, will create a fury inside that will scare, even you. It did me. I...

    Just one night

    Yesterday, I had a nurse give me an injection and upon pulling the needle from my arm a drop of blood oozed forth. The nurse pulled out an alcohol pad but only got half-way finished wiping the blood, now trickling down my arm from my shoulder, before saying, “You can handle it from here, can’t...

    Dominoes in the Sand (Part 7 of an adult journey)

    “Hey babe.” Cyndi said. “I just called...”Dillon began singing, “to say...I love you.” Laughing, “You goof ball.” Cyndi said. “The biggest.” Dillon said. “What’s up?” Cyndi said. “Can you come over?” Dillon asked. “After I take a shower.” Cyndi said, “and wash my hair.” “I want to go...

    Dominoes in the Sand (Part 6 of an adult journey)

    They both slept the whole day, Cyndi waking up to go to school. “Hey, Jen” Cyndi said walking across the living room in jean shorts and an airy cotton blouse. “There you are, again, really?” Jenny said. “Oh, shit!” Cyndi said putting her hand to her head, holding a white sweater. I...

    Dominoes in the sand (Part 5 of an adult journey)

    Dillon hit the sack hard, genuinely exhausted from their date. He woke a couple hours later, wanting Cyndi. She had infiltrated his heart and mind, he couldn’t get the vision of her in her bikini top and jean shorts running for the Ferris wheel, out of his head. Maybe it was her cute little...

    Dominoes in the Sand (Part 4 of an adult journey)

    “Don’t worry, this is on me.” Cyndi said excitedly. “I just don’t know if I will make it back to your place, I’m tired, exhausted.” “Are you sure you don’t want to split it?” Dillon said. “I said this is on me, if I wanted to split it, I would say it.” Cyndi said. “Can’t you allow a woman to...

    Dominoes in the Sand (Part 3 of an adult journey)

    Cyndi descended the stairs rapidly. Arriving at the bottom, she pranced over the sand to a spot suitable for two that might be kissing and getting to know each other, away from the crowd. The brim of her large white hat was bending up from the strong breeze. Her oversized sunglasses looked like...

    Dominoes in the Sand (Part 2 of an adult journey)

    Ever since he got home from the hospital, Dillon has not been able to let his mind idle. Afraid to dwell on that night with the nurse and all he didn’t do. What followed was predictable. Self-loathing, beating up on himself and the inability to forgive. But he had Cynthia to talk to now. And...

    Dominoes in the Sand

    Part 1 of an adult journey His breath was lost, his knees were weak and he knew that he would never be the same again. She only said two words, “Bye, Dillon.” And she was gone before he knew what happened. He didn’t catch his oversight until it was too late. When he did, all the times she spoke...
