Stranded with Mr. Snow

Part 5 They started with Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer snuggled under a thick corded blanket sitting on opposite sides of the couch with Clover resting in her bed near the tree and the fireplace ablaze sipping on a fresh batch of hot cocoa. The bowl of buttery popcorn that claimed the spot between Savoy and…

Stranded with Mr. Snow

Part 4 “Are you okay?” Hudson inquired, leaning over her motionless body while Clover claimed the spot on her other side. The cool wintry wind howled over Savoy as she lied flatly against the blanket of snow. Flakes had stopped half an hour ago, which was how long it took him to lead her to…

Stranded with Mr. Snow

Part 3 Savoy didn’t burn the chili but she did burn the tip of her tongue trying to sneak a taste while Hudson was rummaging around in the basement storage. Sue her. She was hungry. There was only so much hunger that could be abated with snickerdoodles and two mocha lattes. Her taste buds yearned…

Love’s Residue

The flowers had welted The vase was bone dry Although her eyes weren’t Empty tissue boxes filled her trash can Her appetite had vanished The pain was too strong She was evaporating in despair Wasn’t she enough She gave her all Tried her best To be the partner he’d truly admire Even though her friends…

An Unbalanced Apology

She cradled them Delicate bulbs resting in the crook of her elbow Seemed to weigh a ton Probably costed him a pretty coin If it was any other day, She’d be happy If the bouquet was for another reason She’d be smiling But this wasn’t any other day And it wasn’t for another reason He…
