There’s been a bit of speculation—will they or won’t they. If you read Counterpoint,  you know the answer:   I turned to the mantle and pretended to look at the family pictures on display there—anything to take the attention off the topic at hand. Everyone who formed my world was accounted for in small, silver […]

About the End…

I went back and forth on if I should include a translation of the Latin at the end. I decided not to, because I didn’t want to write a long-winded end note, but also because it was already included in an earlier chapter: Though I’m still having difficulty believing he’s gone, I believe without question […]

“You were just shy of a year old at your first P-Rade,” Jack said. “Carlisle dressed you up as a tiger. You weren’t walking yet, so we took turns carrying you.” “You and Dad?” I asked my mom. She shook her head. “No, your father and me,” he explained. “It’s very special to have three […]

As part of education week and in honor of Father’s Day, the lovely Mrs. White of PIC’s FanFic Corner interviewed me as part of a feature on Counterpoint. You can read the interview here.

“Please don’t make fun of me; I cherish every second I have with you.” She pressed her face into the palm of my hand and closed her eyes. “It wasn’t all that long ago when your touch topped the list of things I thought I’d never again experience.” I wondered what she was thinking—if non-sexual […]

“I want to penetrate you in every way possible, to finally make you belong to me in the way that I’ve always belonged to you.” Her breathing deepened, and she let out a quiet moan. I knew I needed to stop. I’d given her a lot of information to process, and for the first time […]

“My father always insisted on slicing the meat for holiday dinners; he taught me. He used to joke it was the only thing he knew how to do in the kitchen without my mother’s help.” She nodded, seemingly deep in thought. “I’m not sure I’ve told you yet how much what you’ve done today means […]

I want to apologize to readers who read Chapter 45 when it was first posted. I’m not sure what happened in Microsoft Word when I accepted the changes suggested by my beta, but almost none of them were reflected in the document. It erased them, but then didn’t actually make them. Anyway, I’ve gone back […]
