Mindy’s Secret

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.

Faithful Spare Tire

“Fucking bastard,” I said, kicking the tire. “Ouch. That fucking hurt.” We were on our way to Hannah’s Mom’s house for Thanksgiving. The distance from here to Seattle was 100 miles.

I Came To Tell Her Husband, She’s Pregnant—With My Baby!

“You can’t be here!” Gina says, tucking her bangs back behind her ear. “I’m not leavin’ until we tell him,” I say. I’m not the assertive type, never have been until now. “I can’t wait another day.” I’m not a drinker, but I’ve been drinking every day because she’s a liar. “It’s his baby, notContinue reading “I Came To Tell Her Husband, She’s Pregnant—With My Baby!”
