Love or lust

Shout out to Mirriam Smyth....you got it! http://mirriamsmyth.wordpress.com


Is it love or lust? Is it meant to be or just a teenage crush?
From adolescence to adulthood, those were two questions I kept asking myself as I read Morgan and Mathew’s story. At times, it felt like love more than lust. Other times, it was the opposite. Sometimes I wondered how their attraction survived their younger years, how it thrived in their adult years when they were so different from each other. And sometimes I wanted their attraction to grow into a love that was shared and felt by both.
Told from Morgan’s POV, all I could see and feel was what she did. More than once I questioned her reasoning for continuously going to Mathew. I wondered what her best friend Gayle did: what kind of hold did he have over her?
Truthfully, it was first love. For Morgan, Mathew wasn’t just a teenage crush or some guy she slept with or the bad boy she couldn’t have. It was first love. She lost her heart to him as a young girl and, unfortunately, never received the same from him.
This wasn’t a love story I’d normally decide to read. The on-again/off-again dynamic of any relationship doesn’t appeal to me at all. But here… It was more than that. I can’t explain it. I can only hope you read it to find out for yourself, to experience first love and lost the way Morgan did, to discover what it means to let someone else love you when the one you gave your heart to doesn’t.
Ms. Loomis, you’ve written a well-detailed story that I promise I will read again. It’s a story worth sharing and a story worth savoring. Well done.

Hey little guy

Roni woke early as usual. The tiny lizard that had come in and out of her room for the last month was on the ceiling in the corner. Hey, little guy, you coming to send me off? she said to herself. The lizard did a couple of pushups almost as if he were answering her, making Roni smile. She had emailed Mack late last night, reminding him of her flight information. They had quit trying to Skype some time ago due to bad timing and not reaching one another; email had become the communication of choice. She’d typed long ones about what was going on. His were mostly very short, typical Mack. She was looking forward to seeing him and nervous at the same time.
            The air conditioning unit kicked on as she threw the sheet back. Jenny was still asleep; her blonde hair spread across the pillow. Roni pulled the tie from her hair and fixed her ponytail before she walked out to the kitchen to make coffee. As she filled the pot from the kitchen faucet, she thought about the frogs. She realized their sound had become a part of her world. She hardly heard them anymore. Wondering how long it would take her to readjust to the sounds of a New York night, she filled the coffeemaker and scooped in the coffee.
