Critical Error 75

Christina stepped back wiping tears from her cheeks.  “Don’t tell mom!  She’ll worry if she knows I’m upset.” Paul smiled, ‘like mother like daughter’. “I think the telling should be yours, Christina.  She needs to know that her life matters to you and perhaps she’ll be less inclined to take unnecessary risks.” “I know, that […]

Christina snagged Paul early the following morning.  “Can we talk for a minute?” “Sure, Christina, what’s up?” “I thought I’d check into the mind-set if that’s possible of the perp.  I don’t get it.” “Ok, go on,” Paul urged. “According to what I’ve found, there are four types of stalkers.

Unsettled #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Tolerant #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Tolerant, thoughtful, tender.  The words on her headstone.  She’d lived up to those words and they’d served her well until that final day when tolerance had been her undoing. Greta hadn’t suspected he was anything other than what he purported to be. Standing over her grave masked in an expensive auburn real hair wig, blue-tinted […]

Sensitive #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Zoe was sensitive by nature.  She’d grown a hard shell of protection.  Advertising wasn’t for the feint of heart.  It took guts, stamina, intelligence, wit and knowing the difference and awareness regarding the current climate. The banner across the stage was for her. Extolling excellence.  She’d earned it, every step of the way. Dogged pursuit […]
