Big round fire ball



             The sun had started to set.  I watched as the sun, like a big round fire ball, slowly sank into the ocean.  There was a small amount of haze, or smog, reflecting the light just so, to create a thin layer above the water all red and purple and orange.  It spread as far as you could see in both directions.
            “Pretty,” Mathew said coming up behind me.
            He was close enough I could feel the electricity between us, I breathed in deeply, smelling him.  Why did I never tire of that?        
            “Thank you,” I said.
            “I meant the sunset, but you too,” he chuckled.

Breakfast



Ryan took me out to breakfast the next morning at Mount Air Café, a diner that had been around forever.  We were up and showered before anyone else in the house was awake.  When we left I could see some of Pat’s friends were asleep on the couches, and the house was a mess.  I was sure Pat would question why Ryan’s van was at the house.  I sat picking at my undercooked eggs while Ryan ate his pancakes.  I felt like I needed to explain myself.  How I could crawl into bed with him when we both knew I was going back to Max.

Drama queen



            “Don’t be a fucking drama queen Morgan,” he said.
            I didn’t move.  I looked away from him staring instead at the ceiling. I felt hurt, angry, and prideful all at the same time.  I finally got up from the floor.
            “You can be the biggest asshole sometimes,” I said heading for the door.
            “Show me your tits,” he said.
            I froze and let his words register.  Without thinking I swung around lifting up my shirt and bra and flashed him.
            “There you go,” I said letting him get a good look at my boobs.

Girls night out

Went out on a 40th last night, drinking and dancing.  Girls out can be fun, still enjoy a quiet evening with my hubby though--he did get to watch sports while I was away, so all good.

Smell of change


She could still picture herself in the passenger seat next to her mother, barely able to look over the dashboard.  The smell of her mother’s perfume mixed with the smell of the leather seats filled her nostrils, the smell of change.  To this day she couldn’t imagine what her mother ever saw in her father.  She could not imagine them ever being happy together, enough to get married, enough for her mother to have sex with him and make a baby.  The thought made her shiver.

Spill it



“Spill it,” Ryan said.
I could tell he was tired of my pensive sadness.
            “I don’t want to,” I said.
            “Why?” he asked.
            “Cause it’s over.  It was over before, but now it’s really over,” I said.
            “If you love him, why is it over?” he asked.
            I watched the sun sink lower in the sky throwing a bright line of light across the ocean at us.  I didn’t answer him.
