The Russian Connection (11): Sparring Partners

Year: 2042 Month: July Day: 25 Location:  Castella Residence – Richmond, Virginia Time seemed to thicken into a viscous liquid, idly slopping along, prolonging the agony Meghan felt in her heart.  She stared into the darkness of the gun’s nuzzle.  It’s black hollow, ever reminiscent of the death it promised.  Sirens could be heard in … Continue reading The Russian Connection (11): Sparring Partners


Finding Tiwa (3)

She … Continue reading Udin’s grouse….Episode 3

My Wedding Night Blues (2)

“Is that what you think? That I took a loan to pay for our wedding?” Raffe asked. “Yes! Where else could you have got the money you plan to spend that is way beyond our budget?” I countered. He had arrived home a short while before from work and I had confronted him immediately on … Continue reading My Wedding Night Blues (2)
