A New Years WishIt was still early in the night of the last day of 2013 and Violet swirled the wine in her glass reminiscing her past new years.
Every year she’d been alone, by choice, of course. Though thinking back, 2008 seemed to have been the most memorable since it had popped back into her head. She could always give Scott a call... They had a good night together back then.
Reaching for her phone, she stumbled in anticipation of Scott’s response to a question she had yet to ask. A text came in as she fingered through the menus. It was from Kevin – someone she had not thought of since at least a year ago when she “dated” him briefly.
‘Hey Girlie, what’s going on tonight?’
She texted him back that she didn’t know yet and had an instantaneous response.
‘Want to come over?’
She examined the question, as it was followed up with a winking emoticon and answered with a simple, ‘Ok.’
She thought to herself once the message was s
Christmas NightTrudging through the snow
In a carriage made for three
Through the town we go
Sebastian, listen to me
Yes my lord, you say
Without a word or plea
On the my lady’s word I go
Guard dog on the way
The Queen needs my help
With a letter sent for me
Through the town we go
Sebastian, we must hurry
Zombies on the ship
Demon dog put to sleep
All the problems are averted
Now it’s time to eat
Yum, Yum, Yum
Sip, Sip, Sip
This one is my favorite
Sebastian I need
Sebastian I want
Yes my lord, you make it
The snow is now falling
Innocent white flakes
Peaceful and selfless
Dreamland must wait
It’s still early
A quarter past ten
I will wait to meet this man
Who wears a hat and suit in red
The town is quiet
Santa is no where to be found
Sebastian – Yes my lord
Christmas is safe and sound
Another awakes as I rest my eyes
He is a man dressed in black
And loves a surprise
Not a creature stirred
As the town fell silent
Upon this night
Nothing was violent
All the demons were gone
First KissSo this is how it went down…
I ended up staying over longer than I anticipated I would. My thoughts were racing as we sat next to once another on the bed. I wanted to make the first move, but what was the first move? I’ve never done this before…
“Are you cold?” He asked me.
I nodded, unable to speak. He smiled gently. My heart began to melt. I could look at that smile all day long. I smiled back and watched as he grabbed the nearest fleece throw and place it around my shoulders.
It’s so big… two of us could easily share this…
He continued to sit next to me, enthralled by the television. I glanced subtly to my left at him and he didn’t even seem to notice. I smiled to myself coincidentally, which may have seemed like I was smiling at what we were watching, because he was smiling too.
Now, the rest of this may have been a blur in the moment, but I remember it distinctively now:
Our laughter engulfed the room, and we ended up looki
Pin-Up DareCain could still not fathom why he agreed to such a preposterous request, but there he stood on a table in the middle of the room, in front of his comrades, with nothing but a skirt, matching garter and high-heels on. His expression was that of embarrassment, but he remained stern throughout everyone’s amusement. I don’t turn down a dare, he thought to himself.
“That garter suits you, Sweetheart!” One of his comrades yelled sarcastically from the crowd.
“Yea, it goes great with your eyes, Cain!” Another one called out in response.
Cain’s eyes searched through the crowd, expecting to see someone out of place, but everyone seemed to blend together in a sea of black fighters.
Suddenly a familiar voice shouted from the group, “Let’s see you spin around, Princess…show off those curves!”
Everyone laughed as Cain spun around hesitantly, thinking of whose voice that comment belonged to. A complete three-sixty and it came to him
