Laced

Simon lowered his head, hunched his broad shoulders, and stepped up through the back of the tuk-tuk.  For many years, he dreamed and saved for this trip.  His camera swung around his neck as he duck-walked down the center aisle.  A young woman reached out to steady him.  His grin matched her radiant smile when…

Beloved

Madelyn passed after a lifetime together and Alfred’s grief threatened to devour him. Josh’s father abandoned them.  He and his mother were forced to sell nearly everything, including his beloved piano, and move away from all he knew. Alfred sold the house and their belongings, but he couldn’t bear to part with Madelyn’s piano.  He…

Jars

Jars lined up along the sink.  Waiting their turn to be emptied and washed.  Cleaning out the refrigerator was the worst job. They recently wed and she moved into his bachelor pad.  The place was a wreck.  He told her not to touch the fridge.  He would take care of it when he had time.  But,…

Incognito

The afternoon light faded.  Nicky paced from his mother’s sewing machine to the kitchen and back. “Are you done?” Nicky asked his mother, not for the first time. Sighing, she said, “Nearly so, dear one.” Once finished, she draped the costume over the table for his inspection.  Nicky clapped his hands with joy.  He would…
