Fatal Obsession: The Black Widows Series #2
Fatal Obsession: The Black Widows Series #2 After a hot weekend with a mysterious woman, Damien Chan did not expect to get a frightened phone call from her, begging him to save–what? who? The call is cut before she says it. The next thing he knows, he’s become obsessed with finding her and saving her from the man that had led to their first meeting. But he never expected to find her in his cousin Dale Carson’s house… as his wife! She finds out her nightmares are actually memories of her past life… the life of a murderer. Could she truly be the deranged Ellsa Jabari who'd almost added her own sister Ellie to the list of people she’s killed? Amnesia can be a real bitch! *************** Chapter One Summer 2006 Damien Chan pushed his sunglasses to the tip of his nose to give his eyes a clear view of the beauty that had just crossed in front of him on the other side of the pool. He hadn’t expected—well it was Miami and seeing beauties pool side was the norm of each day but this one... there was something special about this one. He could tell by the way she walked in her six inch strapped sandals that exposed perfectly pedicured toes and sturdy ankles. There had to be a secret to balancing in those neck breaking heels and look so mouth watering doing so. He never understood why women tortured themselves trying to look taller, but he gained a whole new appreciation for the neck breakers. His eyes travelled up from the silver charm anklet that sat seductively around her ankle, up her caramel stiff shaped calf that spoke of how fit she was. Damien loved a woman who kept fit. Nothing jiggled and she had a combination of tight and soft in all the right places. His eyes journeyed up to her thighs—Damien smiled to himself—toned and jiggle free. Just the way he liked them wrapped around his waist. Her thighs rounded up into a perfect ass partially exposed by the white swimsuit she had on, but tastefully covered by the see through thigh high robe that rode slapdash on her shoulders. The bottom of her swimsuit had golden circular hoops at both sides of her waist bone, clearly the only things holding the bottom pieces together. Very Victoria Secret like. Damien shifted uncomfortably on his lounge chair. The bottom half of her had him so hard already, he had to raise his knee to hide the evidence. She turned around, giving him a back view of her body. He wished she would— “Yes!” he whispered with a discreet air punch. The flimsy robe slide down her arms so fluidly, like a gentle caress and pulled at her waist before she tagged it completely off and tossed it on the lounge chair. Damien had never felt so jealous of a piece of clothing before. What he would give to be that robe! Her back was exposed, except for the thin straps that tied behind her neck and across her back to hold up the swimsuit. She had what looked like a delicate back, the outlines of her shoulder blades were visible and so was the hollow deep between that led to the round curve of
Top-Notch & Unruly
Top-Notch & Unruly *************** In Riverdale District, the doors of a prison slowly opened. Bradley Jackson waved goodbye to his friends in the prison before walking outside in large strides. After he lifted his head, he narrowed his eyes as he allowed the bright sunlight to shine on his face. Feeling as though centuries had passed in the prison, Bradley looked excited and agitated. “I’m finally free.” Five years ago, when he just graduated high school, he was accepted into a famous university. However, at a class gathering, a drunken Jeff Sulley wanted to rape his girlfriend. Initially, Bradley merely wanted to stop him, but Jeff smacked him with a beer bottle and attacked him with a knife, leaving a few wounds on his body. Under those urgent circumstances, he had stabbed Jeff in order to defend himself. However, none of his classmates would testify for him after that. Even his girlfriend, Natalie Tucker, also lied, saying that he was fully responsible for the fight. Why? It’s just because I’m a poor bloke who came from the countryside! It’s because Jeff’s family is rich! Natalie Tucker, Jeff Sulley, just you wait! I will never let you go! Bradley silently swore to himself. However, no one would have imagined that he had received a lot of knowledge transfer in the prison, from Cultivation methods, medicinal knowledge, to Feng Shui and charts. He had learned a lot. Throughout the five years in the prison, he had already assimilated all the knowledge he learned, and he even successfully introduced Qi into his body. He believed that he would definitely lead a glorious life through the knowledge that he received. At this moment, two different voices reached his ear. “Brad.” “Bradley!” With a jolt of his body, Bradley looked into the distance and saw his mother and younger sister waiting for him on their family’s old trishaw. At that instant, tears welled up his eyes as he immediately kneeled before his mother. “Mom.” The longing and guilt he had for them immediately turned into tears. “My son.” His mother, Janice Carlson, also couldn’t stop wiping tears off her cheeks. “Brad, let’s go home.” His sister, Emily Jackson, helped him up. “Alright. Let’s go home.” With that, Bradley went into the old trishaw with his mother and sister. Seeing his aged mother and plain sister, he swore once again to let his family live a good life. “Brad, what’s on your mind?” Emily’s voice interrupted Bradley’s train of thoughts. Bradley merely smiled. “Nothing. Just slightly wistful that you have grown into a beautiful young woman.” Just as what he said, the eighteen-year-old Emily had a slim waist and a beautiful figure, looking quite attractive indeed. She had small lips and a straight nose. With her hair tied up into a ponytail, she looked quite innocent with her clear, wide eyes. “Gee, thanks, Brad!” Emily blushed, looking shy. “You’re now in your senior year, right?” Bradley asked. With that, both his mother and his sister looked slightly unc

But as it turns out, the case is not easy to solve, even for such a talented detective as her. The list of suspects is getting longer and evidence does not clearly indicate any of them. *************** [ IMPORTANT: This story is entirely fictional, just like its characters. Any resemblance to real people or events is purely coincidental. ] (*Oppa - a Korean word that younger female uses towards an older male, usually when they're close) She woke up suddenly in a large room illuminated in white light. At first Ye Eun thought she was in the hospital, but soon found out that it was a completely different place. In one moment Ye Eun remembered what had happened before she suddenly lost consciousness. Ye Eun was going back on foot from the party, at which she quarreled with her boyfriend, felt cold because did not take anything warmer, since she came to the party with him in his car... Then a familiar car drove past her but then stopped nearby and Ye Eun was glad to see a familiar face, but then she began to feel uncomfortable and at some point lost consciousness. Ye Eun felt that she shouldn't be here now. Danger - this word was unbearably pounding in her head all the time. Ye Eun didn't know why she agreed to go to him. From the very beginning she felt that something is wrong with him. So why did she agree? That was a very good question... Nevertheless, Ye Eun didn't trust him at all, even though they had known each other for some time. Ah, if she only could go back to that unfortunate moment... Ye Eun would definitely make a different decision - instead of getting into his car, she would take a taxi or the bus. Unfortunately, it was too late now for that kind of thoughts now. Ye Eun didn't know exactly what awaited ahead, but something told her that she was in a huge trouble. The very appearance of this room did not bode well. Right now Ye Eun was lying down on the cold table, strapped tightly. She still felt a little dizzy in her head, probably because of the weird-smelling liquid in which had been soaked the cloth that he had suddenly put on her lips, after suddenly stopping the car halfway in some remote area. Ye Eun looked around the room to see everything better and maybe come up with some escape route. This place was empty and cold like a morgue, with only few metal cabinets, a trolley table like the one found in the opera

Fatal Jealousy: The Black Widow Series #1
Fatal Jealousy: The Black Widow Series #1 Twins Ellsa and Ellie are completely different in character, personality, taste and interests. Apart from the striking resemblance to each other, they share the one thing siblings shouldn’t. The same taste in men. Carson is interested in only one of them. He is pulled by Ellie’s passion for love and art, and most importantly, him. What starts as a sexual chase, ends with his permanent retirement from bachelorhood. But their love story is not a smooth one. Ellie is implicated in the brutal murders of her ex-boyfriends, and Carson is faced with the horror of arresting the love of his life. *************** Chapter One As they looked into the interrogating room through the one way mirror. “I’m glad this is over.” Richard said to Carson, with a sad tone in his voice. Carson turned and looked at his boss with a poignant look on his face. The distress in his voice was hard to miss, he felt the same way; he always did after cases like this, which was practically every case. They never came out as winners, just satisfied to have put a stop to it. The Behavioral Science Unit was an arm of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that dealt with serial killers and psychopathic behavior. They knew nightmares came true, the boogie man did exist, Halloween tricks or treats could be the death of the partier, and they lived realities that others wouldn’t be able to bear. “It never gets easier.” Carson turned back to the serial killer wishing he had the power to do more than just arrest the shit head. “If only there was a way to stop them before the act.” He had killed six families in the most gruesome of ways, leaving their bodies bloody and in pieces. It’s the kids that hit Carson hard; he hated it when the victims were children. “You know, they put you through all this training. Telling you what to expect and training you to expect the unexpected, how to read people and how to think like psychopaths but they never teach you how to handle how bad it screws you up.” “It’s like throwing a child in the deep end of a pool and watching him struggle to swim,” Doran said as he joined the duo, “but the parents aren’t too far away just in case the child hasn’t found his fins yet.” Carson chuckled, stepping back to give the old man some room, “So you and Richard are the parents?” Running his hands over the sides of his jet black hair Richard protested, “Hey! I’m not that old!” Carson knew he wasn’t, but the job had aged him beyond his years. Richard was taller than Doran but a few inches shorter than Carson. His light pink skin was the contrast color to his everyday dark suits. His dressing was ill influenced by the James Bond movies, the complete opposite of who he was, unlike Carson who stayed true to himself. He was always in jeans, a tee and a leather jacket. He believed in being comfortable if he was going to chase a suspect down, and a suit wasn’t comfortable. He kept his kinky hair cut short and had a finely cut bear

Darkness attracts her, she's drawn to it like a moth to a burning fire. Which path will she choose? *************** The Dark Side Chapter One. "Thank you for walking me home. " I smile up at my boyfriend, Justin. He looks down at me, bright eyes connecting with mine. His eyebrows knit together, arm wrapped around my waist securely - "There's still a way to go. Are you sure you want me to leave you here? " I smile at how over-protective he is. It's one of the things I adore about him. I nod my head, my dark curls bobbing around my shoulders. "Of course, it's like a two minute walk up this road. It's late, you should go. " I lean up and wrap my arms around his neck, pushing the back of his head so that his lips meet mine. He kisses me slowly, his hands resting against the waistband of my shorts. I pull back and rest my forehead against his, looking into his blue eyes. "Happy one year anniversary," I murmur, the smile permanently fixed on my face. Justin traces the skin that's exposed around my stomach, his fingers causing me to shiver in the dark night. "Happy one year baby," he whispers, pulling away from me. He kisses two of his fingers before reaching over and placing them on my lips . . . just like he does every time we say goodbye. "Catch you later. " He smiles before turning around and sauntering off down the street. I watch him go for a few minutes, admiring his beauty from afar. I turn back around, my thoughts spinning with the memories we created tonight. My lips are set into a permanent smile as I continue the rest of the short walk home. It's past midnight, the tree's lining the street swaying softly to and fro from the light summer breeze. I can still smell the heat in the air and I inhale deeply, loving the scent. I'm only a few doors away from home, I can see my little red car parked in front. The curtains are drawn and I know Mum and Dad would be sleeping. There's was a little spring in my step as I hum to myself, bending down to tie my shoelace. It had become undone and I didn't fancy face planting the floor. The low rumble of a car engine ...
DARK ROMANCE! My back hit the wall, I was trembling in fear because of his close proximity. He was so angry that his veins were popping out from his neck, his jaw was clenched. I didn't dare to look at his eyes. Andrew: look at me! I didn't muster the courage to look at his evil eyes so i kept my head low, squeezing myself in the wall. His hot and raged breath was fanning my face. In an instance he moved closer flushing his body against mine.

My butt hurts like hell. When I opened my eyes I saw brown timberland boots, ( oh God... Its not a wall but a man... ughh. ) I slowly craned my neck up to see the person, and a low gasp left my mouth by seeing the guy. He was strikingly handsome. Tall, muscular built, silky ,smooth,Black hair falling on his forehead. He was wearing a ripped black jeans and a black leather jacket. But when my eyes met his, I froze cause his irises were black completely black, pitch dark. His face was expression less. And the intensity by which he was looking at me was so intense that it made me glued to my spot. Some how I got dangerous vibes from him. When he looked at some one behind me, and he passed by me. That's when I got out of my trance. And stood up. I straighten my self up. And turned around but to my astonishment he was no where to be seen. ( Strange, he didn't even said sorry... weirdo) When I reached home, Mom greeted me and asked me about my day.. Dad joined us on the table, I told them everything about my day,except that I bumped into a weirdo... After dinner. I went to room and drifted to deep slumber.

Dawn Of No Return: The Secret's Night Mist
Chapter 55 The Dome Of Truth 3
Dawn Of No Return: The Secret's Night Mist book online reading This is a love story between an assassin and a lady *************** The bell's clang came with dawn. Sunrays crept into Grey's shadowy room, the unusual wooden clock made a click, he started with his face pressed to the pillow mumbling something like 'Bevilwoodwarming,' then aimed for the plastic table by the window, going on his knees. "Open thou my eyes oh Lord, that I may behold wondrous things, out of Thy word, for Christ's sake. Amen." Grey rose, took his seat rubbing his eyes—ready to begin his morning ritual with his Bible. He was raised in a strict Christian family with high standards, the kind that don't accept fiddles to pure moral behaviour. Grey was the first of three children, and a graduate of the University of Port City, the very one his younger brother had applied to, while his younger sister was in her Junior secondary class three, preparing for her Junior West African Examination (JWAE). Grey was a fair, healthy twenty-five-year-old with small brown eyes, black hair, a lean muscular build, and a beard. "Thank you for the illumination of Your word. Guide my path that I may know Thy precepts. Keep me safe from harm." His prayers had shortened with each passing day since the dawn of reality. He rose with a sober face, not for this day being a Sunday, but for the next—he would begin his mad walk through the busy streets of Port City, job hunting under the glaring hot sun and sweat-soaked suit with the angry face of a persistent, worrisome landlord screaming in his mind, "I'm not running a charity here. Pay your rent." He undressed, had his bath, walked to his cloth hanger, picked out a lace material he donned on. He didn't care so much for his looks these days, that was the least of his concerns—a miracle was all he needed. Grey walked over to his table to find his Bible study manual. And in his search, a leaflet slid from the table to the floor—his eyes followed it. The search for the manual ceased, he picked up the fiery coloured leaflet reading the contents: The Fiery Serpent Church No. 34 Beryl Avenue, Port City, Rivers, Nigeria. Such an unusual name for a Nigerian Church, he thought. Grey spotted the red faded serpent on a cross with the reading: Numbers 21:8 And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. Have you been bitten by the reality of life? Worship with us today at the Fiery Serpent Church. Grey jerked his head to recollect how he had gotten this, then it clicked. On the joyous day of his convocation, a lady (he couldn't vividly picture with the day's celebration) passed several of these to him and his colleagues. Grey stared at it wondering, not so far from my place. At least he would miss the tiring festival fated to end by two in the afternoon, he thought, for he was a devoted Anglican. He picked u
The Billionaire's Wife
They never did fall into love. They were forced to marry each other for the sake of their companies. He hated her impulsive and silly ways. She hated his principles and the way acted so authoritarian with his moods shifting uncontrollably. But all these last only for two years; many things can happen in that span of time and there's nothing that can prepare them. With the divorce papers blocking their view, his hectic office schedules, her raging hormones and not to mention, a vengeful ex-girlfriend, how would Elle and Gabriel survive the odds? Is Elle going to agree to end the contract and leave Gabe so she can live her dreams? Or is she going to fight for her right and stay as "THE BILLIONAIRE's WIFE" *************** The Billionaire's Wife Prologue PROLOGUE "Stop. " But I didn't dare to. From the moment I hear his plead for me to stop, I continued further unto my plan. Besides that, my position is rather comfortable and beneficial for my part. I won't trade something so sweet because of a word . "Elle, NOT TODAY... " His words made me stare at him for a moment before smirking. "Elle. Not now... " I stared back at him before sighing. Now I have to deal with the snappy old Gabe, again. I get off his desk and strut around his chair, earning another groan from him. "Elle--" "Okay, Okay. I'm going out now. " I stated in a nonchalant tone but before I completely went out, I gave him something to remember. I lean down on his seat. I grabbed his cheek using both of my hands and kiss him. I pulled his lower lip with my teeth, hearing him groan, “El-" "Elleana Cassidy! " Oops, almost full name. Oh, well. I still won't stop, Mr. West. It was all a misunderstanding. People thought he was heartless and I thought so too when I married him. It's not like we marry because we fell in love. It was all just a partnership. A partnership which results to a very powerful company, the Greene-West Holdings Inc. It all happened a year ago. When my father called me from Paris to get my ass back here in New York right at that very moment, I know something's up. I am worried sick because he won't tell me the reason. I thought it was my mom or something that concerns my past but as I step down from the cab, I know; I know that the reason why I'm here has nothing to do with my family. Or even me. It was for the freaking company. The memory was so vivid that I have to smile every time I reminisce that day. The day that me and my husband met back at his father's office. We both have gone mad when they announce the agreement but we did nothing to stop it. We are born to comply. The craziest thing is that we even have to marry before the end of the month. Not to mention that fact ...

Quinn and the other guy exachage words and he smirks as the waitress takes a step back. The quite guy in the group looks up to the waitress and says something to her and her poise eases. By following Quinn around, I assume he is his best friend. They spend a lot of time together. Andre confirmed his name is Ryan, the only thing that makes Quinn look good. To the waitress relieve she manages to get away from the awful privilege creatures that think they can have anything or anyone and the world revolves around them. I hate them! I despise them and everything they represent. They are takers, take, take! without a care of who they hurt in the process. I will make sure the table will turn, The Nickels will have their share of it. I will take something they value like they did to me. My phone vibrates, it is Oliver. Am supposed to pick him from school. High school has not been easy for him with the bullies everywhere. His text reminds me of the pain of never going to high school. I dropped out to take care of Oliver and I. A sacrifice worth. I can't hear what they are talking about, they are several tables away. I decide to pretend to walk to the wash room, when I walk out I walk to the booth next the group with my coffee. They are immersed into their talks to notice me. "Heard Courtney is back." Ryan says. "How long has it been?" The other guy asks. "Ten years." Quinn answers. "She is back for good, she will start college with us." Ryan says. "Have you decide which college you will be joining, Lee?" Quinn asks. Ah, the third guy is Lee. "Primeton University, I have decide to join you pussies." Lee says. "The only pussy here is you." Quinn teases. "Am not." Lee hisses back. "I dare you to bang that hot waitress." Quinn dares him. "A grand says you can't." I can't hate him more. He is trash. "Nah." Lee says. "Think of what a grand is worth. You can get you your next fix." Quinn tries to persuade him. So Lee does drugs. "Think of also those sweet tits it can buy at XXX Chix too." Quinn adds. At the mention of XXX Chix, I remember am supposed to be there in the next hour and also pick my brother. I take a sip of my coffee as I pack my stuff. My coffee is still hot, I push my glasses back and slightly brush my nose. Am unrecognizable. Thick rimmed glasses and a hat. I spit into my coffee and stand. I tip the waitress and walk towards Quinn's table. He looks up our eyes lock but he loses interest immediately and goes b

Haden Valentini was the son of a self-made billionaire. Travel, women, and fun were his main staples in life. That is until his father clips his wings. Now, he has to prove he’s the man his father always knew he could be, or risk losing his inheritance, but his father’s plans leave a lot to be desired. Kathleen Gage was the manager of Uptown Center in Encino California. Her life was ordinary, routine, and that was how she liked it until Haden became the store’s newest box boy. As if it wasn’t difficult enough to keep her mind on her work with Haden around, now she has to deal with one of her own employees being a possible murderer. Is it possible to keep the store functioning and her heart under control, while putting her life back in order? *************** Playboy Heir Chapter One Ronald Valentini removed his reading glasses and set them on his desk, rubbing his eyes with this thumb and forefinger. He drew a deep breath and leaned his head back against his leather chair, then closed his eyes. He was looking forward to the holiday. A few days relaxing on his boat sounded much better than board meetings, FDA deadlines, and confronting his son. Haden was his only child, and he loved him more than anything in this world, but Ronald was growing concerned about the way he was living his life. Haden had always been very popular, even as a boy. He made friends easily and had the face and charms that won him any girl he had eyes for. Fortunately, he was also very intelligent. He possessed his mother's photographic memory and his father's determination to win. He graduated high school at seventeen with a 4. 0 GPA and a scholarship to Harvard. In college, he was even on the Dean's List three years running. Ronald felt certain Haden had moved past his colorful youth when he graduated college with his degree in architecture. Instead of putting it to use, he returned to his flamboyant lifestyle, traveling around the globe with his best friend, Aaron Nielsen, partying every night, and entertaining a different woman in every country he visited. His son had everything a young man of twenty-five would ever want. He was suave, good-looking, tall, and had a father worth billions. Much to Ronald's disappointment, the only ambition the boy had was improving his tennis game and finding another young beauty to warm his sheets. Unbeknownst to Haden, however, all of that was about to come to an end. Ronald Valentini had come from an impoverished Italian-American family and was forced to drop out of school when he was fourteen. His father had been killed in the Vietnam War, leaving his wife and two young sons alone. As the eldest of the two and the new man of the house, Ronald was up to support his family.

Now that she finally met the man who defiled her - the father of her son, would she agree to his request, now that her life is at peace? *************** The Billionaire's Affair Family S City, 5:30 A. M. The sun slowly rose behind the skyscrapers, spreading light as its rays passed through the gaps between the infrastructures. The rays of the sun crawled through the areas where it struck, going through the closed window of a small apartment, then passed by it. Light seeped through the space between the window frame and the thick curtain and softly touched the fair and rosy cheek of a child sleeping, his back against the wall and his cute face facing a fair young man with a delicate face. The man’s brows are thin and his nose is tall. His thin lips curves as if he is always smiling. His eyelashes are long and curled, blanketing his slanted eyes. Someone who’ll see him can tell he has a gentle aura and a mild-temperament. The child sleeping beside him has a fair face with rose complexion, combined with his plump cheeks one can tell he is a healthy child. The child’s thick eyelashes quivered and his pouty red lips pursed as a sign of waking up. His eyes slowly opened and was met with the man’s face. “Dada~” the child called, his voice sounded milky and his small hands raised to touch the man’s face. The child’s small hands softly landed on the man’s smooth skin. “Ooo~” the child exclaimed, his eyes and mouth became ‘o’ and he giggled. The man, feeling the child’s touch, opened his eyes and was met with a cute face. The man’s heart melted like a block of chocolate exposed to a radiant sun. He smiled and softly pinched the child’s small hands and rubbed the child’s palm with his thumb. “Good morning, Wenwen. ” Ye Yixu greeted and planted a kiss on the child’s forehead. Then, he sat up the bed and picked up the child, then walked towards the door and opened it. He went outside with Ye Wenwen in his arms. Ye Yixu heard the clattering of the kitchen utensils. He and Ye Wenwen walked towards the kitchen and saw Sun Xinran cooking. She wore an apron with the dogs’ head imprinted, the smoke is billowing ...

" I abruptly waken up by my father's loud voice in my dreams. I looked around the moving car and sighed heavily. "We're not there yet? " The female driver looked back to me using the reared view mirror. "No Miss. 10 more minutes. " I sighed again and looked out of the windows. My name is Irina Audra, the daughter of Larion Audra, the chairman of the world's leading secret association for assassins. I was raised in a very dark situation where I'm always looking up to death. After the end of my older brother and sisters because of my own foolishness, my father chased me out and disowned me as his daughter. I am now just Irina. I sighed when I saw the vast building of the place I call home. It's a complete change from my old environment but, my mom is the only person who I can count on. "Madam Dasha will be very please miss. She's always been telling us the staff about you and your other siblings. And of course, my condolences for their passing. " "Staff? Is that mean your an assassin as well," she shook her head. "No, ma'am. I'm just one of the people who created the weapons used by the student. " It gained my attention. "You made guns? " She nodded. "Blades, axe, bows, you named it. I am also a part-time driver. " She smiled and entered the vast gated community. "So this is Volin? It's enormous. Larger than Audra. " The driver smiled. "It's the only higher education institution that has every course known to man. Only the best for our young ladies. " I wondered. "Do you have demonology? " The driver nodded.

Female (Fem-A-Lee) was as unusual as her name indicated. She was young and beautiful with enough ambition to supply three women her age. As a police photographer, she was the best there was, but she wasn't content to stay in her office and wait for action to call her; she wanted more.

She knew this was coming. It’s been like this her whole life. Even when she tried to open her first bank account. The look on the teller’s face was a mixture of amusement and horror, but it was worse whenever she applied for a new job. Always the same thing; Is that a real name? or What were your parents smoking when they named you that? “It is,” she answered. What else could she say? Her name was Female. “There has to be a story behind this one. ” He reached for the stump of an unlit cigar and tucked it between his teeth as he waited patiently for the explanation of a lifetime. “My parents couldn’t agree on a name when I was born so the hospital just put Female on my birth certificate,” she began explaining with the usual nonchalant shrug. It was an old story and one she had told a million times. “The hospital told them how to change it once they thought of a name, but they never did. My grandmother changed the pronunciation to Fem-A-Lee and nicknamed me Emalee, so that’s what I go by. ” “Are you an only child? ” he asked her with a smirk that promised a full-blown breakdown before the interview was over. “No, I have four siblings. ” She was sure she was blushing, she always did. How did a person explain a family with names while you had a title? Emalee could see the humor in his eyes growing stronger and silently vowed if he didn’t wipe that expression of wait until I tell the boys this one off his face, she was going to punch him. “Do they have names or did your parents just number them? ” She found herself gripping the arms of the chair a bit tighter. If he laughed she was definitely going to thump him a good one, but she had to contain her anger, she needed this job. “No, they all have names. It’s just me my folks couldn’t decide on. ” “Okay,” he finished, putting the cigar back into the overflowing ashtray as he leaned forward again. He was amused...

Melanie Kent was a simple girl from a small town in Utah. Six years ago, she thought her life was perfect, with the husband of her dreams and a bright future in front of her. That was until her husband decided he wanted more. And she wasn’t it. Jordan James was on a secret mission to bring in an embezzler and murderer to justice. Hiding under the persona of a reporter, he finds himself back in the life of the girl who has haunted his dreams for years. He volunteered for the case, just so he could reacquaint himself with the beautiful Melanie Kent. Is it possible for Jordan to find a killer and save Melanie from a life of dismal existence before her ex-husband can steal her away from him? *************** Familiar Lovers Chapter One The hour was growing late, but Melanie continued to look interested in the subject occupying the apartment. Thoughts of a hot bath haunted her mind, while the leftovers of her mother’s strawberry cheesecake occupied her flowered plate. The day had seemed like one endless activity after another. It had proven to be a long conclusion to an exhausting week. She worked later than normal so she could organize her classroom for Monday and submit her final grades on time. She stopped by a small drive-in on the way home and found herself finishing out her Friday with a greasy burger and cold fries. As if that wasn’t bad enough, her old Camry stalled on the freeway during rush hour. After waiting an hour for AAA to come out and help her replace her battery and alternator, she finally got home, shortly after eight o’clock, to find herself the unwilling victim to a surprise visit from her parents and little sister, Stephanie. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to see them, it was just that her sister was getting married in a few weeks and her excitement was a bit overwhelming. Her mother insisted on having Melanie involved in the plans, though her daughter could really care less what color the flowers were, or which of the nieces and nephews were old enough to be in the procession. It really didn’t matter anyway, Melanie thought. It was the same way with her own wedding. Regardless of the choices the bride made, it was up to their mother if she acted on them or not. Where Stephanie wanted a bouquet of carnations and daisies, Vera insisted that it had to be roses. Stephanie argued on having a reception at the family farm, with a large barbeque and loads of fun, while Vera assured her that a catered dinner would be preferable. Vera had already put a deposit on the chicken and salmon for the reception, along with a spread of assorted cakes, chocolate fountain, ice cream, and eclairs, but opted into saving money by providing the side dishes....

She laid her yoga mat and did (well.. try) a few crunches and squats before heading outside to make breakfast. As she walks thru her kitchen, she noticed her best friend, Alessa, passed out on her coach, she smells like a mixture of vodka and beer and.. cigarettes. She doesn't like people who smoke, she tolerates Alessa since she knew her for years and she wasn't really a smoker, it was peer pressure that actually made her do it but Florence just really hate people who smoke but since its Alessa she can tolerate it.

She knows everything about her and she definitely knows how she party hard. Alessa is always busy during the weekends. "What time is it?

He leaned close to her face but not close enough to kiss and looked into her eyes while giving her that sexy smirk. "What's this game?" She whispered breathlessly, not tearing her gaze from his. "We both share our sexual adventures or fantasies with each other, one by one, and then zip them up by a kiss, that way we won't ever share these with anyone but each other." ~~ 18 + ONLY Copyright © FastAndDeep 2021 All Rights Reserved. *************** Making Her Numb 18+ MHN 1 || Strange •~Nadia~• "Doctor Collins, your next appointment will be with you in ten. " Nadia, his receptionist informed through the intercom. "Hey, Nadia, can you shift the appointment by half an hour, if not much. " The Doctor loosened his tie, tired of the endless appointments. He hated Mondays, especially Mondays in the month of December. Everyone wanted to get their insurance benefits before the end of the year. He hated the patients who really had no specific problems as such but they chose to give a list of unrelated symptoms just to ensure that they were fine from the head to the toe. "I will try to reshuffle but this one seems persistent. " She whispered as if trying to hide the fact that she was talking. "Who isn't? When did she call last? " The Doctor was growing annoyed, he never really liked the impatient ones. "She didn't. " "She didn't call? Did you give her a same-day appointment? I don't pay you for this Nadia. " The Doctor didn't appreciate such mismanagement of his schedule. "She says it's urgent, Doctor. She is waiting right outside, should I ask her to come back later? " The receptionist felt humiliated for getting a scolding, it has been hardly a month since she got this job, she would like to keep it. "Yes, if you want your month's pay. " The Doctor hung up on her. She cringed at the monotonous tune that plays after the phone goes dead. "All right then," She whispered to herself, preparing herself to give an excuse for the absence of the doctor in polite terms. "Appointment number A192 is requested to report at the reception. I repeat, Appointment number A192 is requested to report at the reception.

It took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get to this moment, but as I look around, I am reassured it was well worth it. Twenty-two years ago, in a sleepy small town called Welch located in Northeastern Oklahoma, I met and married a man named Nelson Jackson. Oh, he was a smooth talker and made me feel like I was royalty, I never wanted for a thing in the beginning. We were just kids who thought we were adults and knew everything so when my friends and family came to me with their concerns I brushed it off as they were jealous or just not giving him a fair chance. I was caught up in his aura of stability and maturity. He made me promises that had me trusting his every word and I never questioned anything because he always seemed so sure. What I didn’t know was what monster lived beneath the surface, the one that lived for torture and the suffering of those he claimed to love. “Mom! ” Paige yelled bringing me out of my musings. “What baby girl? Why are you yelling at me? ” I asked. Rolling her big brown eyes Paige said, “God, I have only said your name six times trying to get your attention. Maybe you should……. ” “Maybe you should remember just who you are talking to young lady,” I interrupted her, “You best check your tone and let’s try this again. ” I arched an eyebrow at her. “Sorry momma,” Paige apologized, obvious to the warning in my tone, “Anyway, Bailey and Willow want to go to Cherry’s with me tonight; Is that ok? ’ I really did not know this Cherry kid very well, but she is Paige’s best friend, so I just go with it. “Yeah, that’s fine. You know the drill though…. ” “Yes momma,” she said with a smile, “Contact numbers for everyone, text or call to say goodnight and I love you and make sure our teeth are brushed before going to bed. ” She laughed at me, “Sometimes I wonder how you don’t fall apart from all the worrying you do. ” With...
