Go

The end. It came sooner than we expected. We had hoped that with our wedding, a new phase of our lives would begin. We hoped that the best part of our lives lay in that union called marriage. Where Zach would call me wife, and I would call him husband. We didn’t know that our love story was slated to […]

Knock, Knock

It’s time. Time to knock on that door. The other side of the door has a woman who doesn’t like me very much right now. You wouldn’t too if I left you hanging on our wedding day. The other side of the door is also full of chaos in the form of unanswered questions and wounded feelings. There is a […]

Hold Me

So many things that shouldn’t have happened, happened. I went to see Suzzie. I shouldn’t have done it, but I did it anyway. Her sister told me where to find her. She was in the hotel room. It was fully paid for. She wanted to be alone. She might as well spend the night in what would have been the […]

A few clouds are scattered here and there, but nothing threatens to come out of them. The air, well, it is the air. Who […]

I Cheated On You

Tonight, a man and a woman are holding a rendezvous in one of the hotels in the city. If you happen to intrude on them, maybe get your hands on their room keys, happen to open the door noiselessly, if you’re careful to step into the room on tiptoe, careful not to make a sound or tip the tray of […]

The F word

Pretty soon, she will look to us and seek some advice on how to forge ahead, then we will be forced to step up. This young girl who is constantly thinking about her dream wedding. She pictures herself in that white flowing dress, veil intact, walking towards this breathtaking hunk of a guy (the ultimate prince charming in her young […]
