I didn't expect to feel this way. Letting a character go, 'finishing' their story and moving on to the next is usually every easy for me. By the time I kick them out of my head and write 'THE END' I'm a little bit glad to see them go. Like a parent sending their kid… Continue reading Evolution & Completion
From 'MOTHER': Watching as she scooped up her hair and fastened it at her nape while opening the container of Singapore rice noodles, Jay smiled at his wife’s perfect double-cantaloupe ass. Wife.
