I love reading, being outdoors, and watching horror movies. I love anything scary or true crime. Sometimes it's the real monsters that are the scariest.
Duke: Volunteer Firefighter, Tutor, and Full-time Guard Dog
Hi! I'm Duke. I am a three-year old Harlequin Great Dane. I live at home with my parents, three brothers, a sister, a fluffy serial killer named Nora, and a large mouse-like creature named Daisy that my mom calls a Guinea Pig. I think she's cute, but I'm not allowed near her cage anymore because the last time I went to say "Hello" she bit my nose and I cried hysterically for 3 whole minutes.
Best Job In The World
I love my job because it is the most rewarding job in the world: being a parent. I also work as a nonprofit accountant, working for organizations whose mission it is to help others, but as rewarding as that job is, it is in no way a comparison to being a mother and Mimi. Motherhood was not in my original plans growing up. I had been told at sixteen that it was highly unlikely that I would even be able to have or carry children of my own. But at 21 I was shocked to find that I was pregnant with my first son.
Home The feel of your hair; dark, thick, coarser than mine, as it hung in loose curls far down your back. Home The richness in your skin that looked so beautiful and warm in all of its fawn-colored glory, an ode to your indigenous ancestors.
At the Pear Tree
The crackling of the fluorescent lights overhead were the only sound audible in the little room the hospital had labeled “the chapel”. Sara had fallen to her knees on the deep, red carpet and had begun praying to a God she wasn’t even sure she believed in anymore. Tears clouded her vision and she felt as though her heart would explode right from her chest.
Forbidden Love, Forbidden Fruit
Richmond Hill, Georgia 1939 The moonlight illuminated through the thick strands of Spanish moss that hung down from the oak trees, casting shadows upon the driveway. Anna walked slowly, her mind wandering as she made her way towards the large, Greek-Revival style home that loomed in the distance like a stoic beast. The beautiful trees created a sort of tunnel all the way down to the main part of the front garden. Anna’s dark, loose curls blew around her face as the warm Georgia breeze swept through wrapping her with scents of magnolia, lilac, and tobacco. She breathed deeply, closing her eyes for just a moment. She was beautiful, breathtaking really. But she didn’t know it, which made her even more lovely.
