    Just Two Friends And The Queen Of The Dessert

    The music was blaring as the camaro came to a stop at the end of the driveway. The kid leaned over the passenger seat to roll the window almost all the way up, then his own window up before turning the engine off. He steps out with a bag of groceries and heads up to the front...

    Not on here though. I do enjoy telling my

    girlfriend short stories though :) Either about my past or just fictional stuff off the top of my head. I think I get too into it sometimes and make them super long though. I try not to drag the story on longer than it has to be but I always do. Idk I like detail :P

    Hiroshima

    The days continue to get harder. My mother is trying to provide for her and me, but things have gotten more difficult since my father left. They’d always fight. Sometimes I’d come home to the sound of my mother getting bashed against a wall. Or the sight of her fragile head...

    Bloodshed On The Streets

    I love the drama at home. It makes me forget all about the war that is going on outside our houses. Many of my friends and family have been shot and killed in the streets. This place is no longer safe. Nothing is sacred to these soldiers. They march around intimidatingly and...

    Just Two Friends And The Kids Too

    It was mid-morning when he pulled up to her house, the day set to be warm but not too hot, a perfect day to get the bricks unloaded and set up around the new flowerbed she just put in toward the back of the yard. She was piddling around the front yard as he pulled up, glancing...

    Motivation

    The Black Death

    The misery is everlasting. The streets are filled with a bloody stench that is vulgar. You try to hide away your face, but to no avail. The effects of The Black Death are tragic. Bodies piling up on the streets like waste. My child and I are trying to stray away from the Black...

    Just Two Friends At A Backyard Bbq

    It wasn’t often he found himself at a social gathering at her and her man’s house, but this was just a simple barbeque, just a few friends, perhaps nothing too major that she’d be embarrassed to have him be at amongst the bulk of their friends and family. At least that’s...

    Just Two Friends And Back Again

    He pulled up in his old camaro, parked at the end of the driveway and got out. His tee-shirt hanging from the back pocket of his jeans, his hair cut and face shaven, looking better than he had in quite a few weeks. He walked up to her front door, not knowing what to expect, if...
