The upside down of life


07 Dec, 2016 05:46 PM

I was young and afraid but as a fifteen year old, the last thing I expect to feel was despondence. Due to the fact I worked as a horse caretaker for an aristocrat and his family, the commoners took pity on me. At first, I thought I knew what went in their heads but never understood the depths of it until the storming of Bastille and when all of the aristocrats were taken captive. However, before some of the aristocrats were taken captive, a bunch of them were taken out from their comfy homes and shot in public. The ones responsible for their deaths were people randomly taken from the crowd and forced to hold a gun and shoot lives that were as equal as theirs. The day before my master, Lord Jacob, and his wife, Lady Maria, and two children were taken. I was in the stables having a... [Read More]

Letter to my Almost Lover


20 Mar, 2015 09:03 AM

I remember when I first saw you. I didn't see all of you at first, I just saw your eyes. They were a piercing blue that held me for what felt like a millennium. What followed was your laughter; it was the type of laughter that was contagious - everyone around you would laugh, or at least smile. You had an ability to light up a room. I first worked up the courage to talk to you in our P.E. class. You were a senior, I was a freshman. The difference alone made me nervous. I don't recall what we spoke about, but I felt an immediate connection with you. You began to give me rides to school; I always looked forward to those mornings.

Nothing like finding out 27 years later that you got torpedoed/robbed of what could've been. My brother married a girl many years ago.I was in my early 20's at the time. One of her life long friends was in the wedding as I was. This gal and I just hit it off. She was 4 years older then me but no problem. We pretty much fell for each other instantly I came home just for the wedding as the company I worked for was moving me way north. Emails/cell phones were non existent but her and I stayed in touch. I flew down to see her a few times and we just had no issues. I remember my then new sister in law making comments about her friend and me getting rather cozy with one another but it just went over my head. She didn't approve and I basically told...
