A Readers Dream: The Shopping Trip
Alyssa wasn’t sure how long she had spent in the bathtub. She got out to find her toes were as wrinkly as her fingers. It was worth it, she felt better than she had all week. She towel dried and was surprised when her hair didn’t frizz up like normal, it stayed straight and smooth, just the way he fixed it. Alyssa wrapped her towel around her and opened the door. The first sight that greeted her was Gene laying on the bed staring at her, Alyssa jumped nearly losing her towel, she had forgotten he was there. She looked at him, then her dresser, she may have spent the night in his arms but she wasn’t ready to let him see her naked.
Hanging up the Headset
It’s been almost a year since I worked my last shift in dispatch. There are nights when I am still woken up in terror and think I have to go to work, or have nightmares about being called in. This year on the 4th of July was the first time in 10 years that I was truly able to enjoy the long holiday weekend. Yet somehow, I managed to have the most awful dream. Dispatch was short staffed so I went in on the holiday then they kept me for an extra day and I missed work at my new job. I woke up with my heart racing. I can tell you I didn’t have nightmares like that when I was working, but I didn’t get as much sleep either.
A Readers Dream
Alyssa opened her eyes, unaware of how much time had passed and found herself sitting on the side of the road in an unknown neighborhood. She stood, still feeling slightly dizzy and faltered when she attempted to walk. She looked around hoping to catch a glimpse of her mother’s car, or something that she recognized. Nothing, at this hour on the weekend everyone seemed to be tucked safely in their own homes or out on the town.
The Unexpected Ride
Jessie breathed hard, she felt cramped, her head was pounding. She opened her eyes and it was dark except for a small crack of light. She was in a box, a trunk of some sort as she felt around. The last thing she remembered was following Dr. Lance. He must have caught on. She knew he was a dangerous man, but it was her job. The Consortium hired her to find out what Dr. Lance was up to, and this is where she ended up.
5 Things Every Mom Should Tell Their Daughter
My 13 year old daughter told me that she compared herself to her cousins. She has a cousin only eight months younger than her. They are close in age but can’t be any more different. She told me she felt inadequate when she saw her cousins life. As a mom the most important thing for me was to reassure my daughter that she didn’t need to compare herself to anyone else.
A Readers Dream
Alyssa woke up groggy, she stared at the clock feeling like she had not slept at all, but the clock said differently. It was already ten in the morning, she had to be at her mom’s at four that afternoon. It gave her plenty of time to figure things out. She slipped into the shower and let the warm water wash over her body. She was tired of her life, she was almost 30 and she couldn’t seem to get anywhere. All the men in her life had been failures, now was her chance to turn it around.
A Readers Dream
It was the little black notebook that changed her life. Reading the book gave her power that she couldn’t understand but she was working on it. She could take any character out of a book. The things she could do, she thought it would be helpful when she had a family wedding to attend. She read a prince out of the book to be her date to a family wedding. He, however, turned out to be a bit too cavalier and she couldn’t even get him into a cab. There were still questions she didn’t know what her limits were. She found she could bring people out no problem, and it was easy wishing them back into the book when she tired of them. She found that where she picked them out of the book mattered. One of the princes she tried wasn’t such a great guy in the beginning of the book. He turned out to be a jerk.
