“They won’t talk to you.” I look around, trying to pinpoint the voice offering that insight. I spot her in the window. A tiny face with giant eyes and bouncy dark pigtails. She has a stuffed elephant clutched tightly in her arms. “They don’t like cops,” she says solemnly. I look down at myself, confirming… Continue reading Dylan


“You’re back.” I grin agreeing to the obvious. “I’m back. I brought a friend with me.” I turn and pull my little sister forward for introductions. “Logan, this is Skylar. Skye, meet Logan.” Skylar is predictably star struck. I swear, the fact that I’m a professional baseball player – and a damn good one –… Continue reading Connor


“Who is that?” At my question my best friend cranes her neck around, not at all subtle. But then neither am I, so who cares? “The guy that just walked in? That’s Dylan.” “That’s Dylan? The cop that’s in love with you?” Predictably, she rolls her eyes at me. “He’s not in love with me.… Continue reading Blake


Today is going to be great. Or at least not awful. I will strive for not awful. Quite the pep talk, Ash. Aim high. Honestly though not awful would in fact be awesome. Lucas and I are spending the afternoon at his uncle’s annual July 4th barbecue. On paper it sounds like a delightful way… Continue reading Ash

I hate this part. The fake smiles and obligatory laughs and handshakes supposedly promising something. How many of these people actually believe in my father? Believe in what he says he stands for? How many of them are just here for potential future favors? But this is why I’m here, I remind myself. This is… Continue reading Zane #AtoZChallenge

God, I am so tired. I adjust the shoulder strap of my canvass knapsack across my body. Everything I still own is in this bag and while it’s not much, it still gets pretty heavy after hours of lugging it around. But I’ve finally reached my destination so hopefully I’ll have some relief soon. Relief… Continue reading Wren #AtoZChallenge

I hop onto a stool and watch my sister whip together some heavenly smelling chocolate concoction. I grab a chocolate off the tray and pop it into my mouth, humming appreciatively. “Hey! Those are for tomorrow.” I grin at her scolding. My sister is an amazing pastry chef. She recently reopened the bakery our Grandma… Continue reading Vaughn #AtoZChallenge

“Get fancy. We’re going out.” My best friend sighs on the other end of the line. “I don’t really feel like it, T. I just want to put some comfy clothes on, curl up and watch a movie.” I was prepared for this response. “Ilyssa! Riley and Daniel just broke up. She needs us right… Continue reading Teagan #AtoZChallenge

Sloane #AtoZChallenge

I am trying desperately to ignore the fact that Josh Garrison is standing only twenty feet away, looking sexier than any man has a right to in a tuxedo, and staring right at me. Focus, Sloane. Focus on your job. I smile seamlessly at the guests, calmly assign tasks to the staff and volunteers, and… Continue reading Sloane #AtoZChallenge
