Who Killed Hannah? – Andrew Cyr

Who Killed Hannah? by [Andrew Cyr]

I so have to figure out who killed, no, who murdered Hannah and why, Francis thought, staring eye-level into a half-empty wineglass as though it were her best friend, a day after Thanksgiving. Why didn’t she have the fucking Smith & Wesson I bought her last Christmas? Francis drew a syringe on an envelope. An uptick in Seattle suburbia murders had cops prioritizing a local politician’s killing over Francis’s wealthy aunt.

Buried Alive

Buried Alive by [Andrew  Cyr]

Shannon hated her mother. I didn’t care for the woman either, but I had no reason to see her dead, at least not at first. But Shannon, Shannon wanted the bitch dead as fuck. I couldn’t reconcile the sweet, long blonde-haired churchgoing girl with the vicious, spoiled brat. But here she was, and here I am, driving in a car with the woman I love right after I may or may not have killed Shannon’s mom.

Mindy’s Secret

Mindy's Secret by [Andrew Cyr]

Mindy’s father hated me, especially when he found out we were more than friends. I couldn’t help that I fell in love with his daughter, and she couldn’t help that she fell head-over-heels for me. She was white, and I was half-black. Mindy’s father, Jim, said people should stick to their own race. Mindy and I had to sneak away to spend time together. Her father threatened me he’d kill me a time or two. Mindy told him if he didn’t stop his threats, she’d leave.

The Uber Date – Kindle Edition

The Uber Date

Where is she? I glanced at my watch. She should be here by now. I folded my arms across my chest. It’s too cold to be waiting for an Uber. The December air whipped through my jacket and numbed my fingers. My first date in ten years, and I was going to be late. Screw my life. Another few minutes circled the clock, then a blonde woman in a Jeep approached the curb. “Ahh. You’re finally here,” I said as I slammed the door.

Sarah’s Choice : I’m Not Good Enough eBook: Cyr, Andrew : Kindle Store

Sarah's Choice : I'm Not Good Enough by [Andrew  Cyr]

I’d been with Sarah for five years, and she was getting anxious, anxious for me to pop the question or move on with her life. And rightly so. At thirty-five, I’d hoped to marry. We’d hoped to marry. But we both came from broken homes and had abandonment issues. The last thing Sarah wanted was for her mother to throw a potential divorce in her face and say I told you so.

Love at a Cemetery – Kindle edition by Cyr, Andrew.

Love at a Cemetery

It was the bone-chilling Northwest winter of 1994 when I stood with my shaky hands folded before Granddad’s grave. I stared at his name with a million things on my mind. His name was Shawn Black. Even during prayers with Mom, I didn’t close my eyes; I was always thinking, eyeing everyone else’s closed eyes, wondering what they were hiding from God.

Caught in the Act: Cyr, Andrew: Kindle Store

Caught in the Act by [Andrew Cyr]

It was the bone-chilling Seattle winter of 1994 when “Breakdown” by Mariah Carey played on Mary’s radio. Outside was a winter wonderland with five inches of snow pushed to either side of the steep road. I’d lived just three blocks away, so I tromped through the snow in boots and a stocking cap covering my ears. I stomped my feet before entering Mary’s two-story upper-middle-class house. We needed to finish our high school science project, and I needed to study her lips.

The Angelic Cheater – Kindle edition by Cyr, Andrew. 

The Angelic Cheater by [Andrew Cyr]

As I closed the door behind me, the scent of her naked body and cologne, someone else’s cologne, didn’t escape my attention. I raked my fingers through my thick brown hair. It had to be Hannah cheating again. I held my finger to my lips. “Wait here, Becca,” I told my sister. I climbed the stairs to my bedroom and kicked the door open.

The Stalker by [Andrew Cyr]

It was the winter of 1995, and Christmas was three weeks away. I was out with a couple of friends at Mojo’s sports bar. We’d meet up every few months to catch up. Our meetups were like a Facebook post, reminding me of how messed up my life had become.

Sammy: Cyr, Andrew: Kindle Store

Sammy by [Andrew  Cyr]

Becca’s eyes were cold and lifeless as she stared at me. We stood in a crowded hallway, but our eyes locked and all I heard was the screaming silence on her lips and everything I was sure she wanted to say. What I knew she had to tell me about how I’m such a horrible person for doing what I did. I still haven’t forgiven myself for it, and I doubt I ever will.

I Guess It’s Over?

You’d ask me what you wanted me to hate me hear. I’d tell you what you wanted me to think when you thought I didn’t think anything at all. You’d come home to your mud-splattered clothes strung on the lawn just before dawn. I come home to a barrel set ablaze, burning everything we owned.

Cougar At The Pool

Crisp golden-brown leaves from maple trees scattered the distance. Even so, she was suntanning by the pool, wrapped in a blanket, making me want her, making my mouth water with saltwater with her pale skin well enough for a suitor. She’s a cougar; even still, I hate that I’d date her. It’s not what you think, but I spiked her drink, hoping she’d drown in a swim, and then I’d save her.
