I have been writing for years, but this is the first time I have written any short stories. I have self-published a few books on Amazon, and have some WIPs. I hope you enjoy my short stories.
A Glass of Merlot
Jolene looked at herself in the mirror. Her big brown eyes were tinged with thick black lashes. Her full lips were painted in plum colored lipstick, and her dreadlocks were pulled up into a top bun. She wore a dress she bought on the way home. She saw in the window of the boutique and thought it would be perfect for tonight. She had not bought anything new in an age, and although she was nervous about tonight, she wanted it to go smoothly.
And So It Happens
Florida put her hands over her face. It was enough. It was too much. She could no longer pretend that everything was okay. It wasn’t. It had not been for a long time. She blew out a breath, or maybe she should be taking one in. Either way, she felt calmer. She almost broke down for a minute, and that would not do in front of her sixth-grade math class.
