43. it doesn’t make any sense

Becca froze. She was afraid the little girl would run if she made any sound or any movement. The two stared at each other, until Cora entered the room and began rubbing up against Becca’s legs. Becca jumped when she felt the fur touch her and when she looked back up, the girl was gone.…

42. if this is normal…

Becca woke to the sounds of little girl’s laughter. Andrew was still sleeping peacefully next to her, arms above his head. The light from the window laid across his body making his dark skin even more intoxicating. The laughter echoed through the air again. Becca sat up with a sense of curiosity. She slowly stepped…

41. how do we go back to normal?

“Why didn’t you call me?” Andrew asked when Becca answered.  She paused before answering how she really felt. That she was getting too close for a guy who seemed to only see her for a convenience. “I don’t know,” she answered. “I guess I thought you would be busy. I know Jenny is taking some…

40. goodbye

Becca woke to the sounds of sirens and slowly sat up to the fogginess of the room. There was a bustling as she watched two men rush up to Morgan. Leena sat back from her and leaned on her knees as they dropped their bags and approached.  “What about that one?” she heard from one…

39. enter the darkness

Before Becca had a chance to ask what that meant, her phone rang. She looked down to see Bo’s name. He never called, usually texted, and with what she had done, the words she had spilled out of her stupid mouth, she wanted to avoid him at all costs. “Don’t answer that,” Leena said.  Becca…

37. was it a mistake?

Becca finally got a chance to look at what Bo was doing for repairs when the morning light filtered into the room. It looked good, even if it was sad to see the old, the vintage, disappear.  The kitchen was mildly functionable, with a microwave and refrigerator. She had told him to save what he…

36. get out

The long drive was a bit surreal. It had been awhile since she had driven it. Not to mention she was still running on very little sleep. For whatever reason, she had placed Cora in a basket next to her. The silly cat must have a sixth sense and was weaving in and out of…

35. now

She didn’t remember having slept, so she forced herself into her bed, wet hair against a cold pillow. The sounds of the room, the traffic outside, were all soothing, but the feeling in her stomach was not one she could ignore. She turned the tv on, to make more noise and drown out her emotions.…
