N (A to Z Challenge)

Jennifer had been a naughty child, not mean, cruel indifferent, just incorrigible and adventurous.  As she looked back through the years, she realized she’d probably given her parents near heart-attacks with her antics. A tomboy of the first order, there was no risk, no adventure she wouldn’t undertake.  Often playing by the forbidden railroad tracks […]

K (A to Z Challenge)

  Jessy and Franklin had been kindred spirits since their formative years. They’d clicked, no need to try, it was there.  They spoke the same language in everything except romance going their separate ways but remained close though lovers had come and gone over the years.
