Payback’s a bitch

Jimmy stormed up the porch steps, rage like he’d never felt running through him. Just as he lifted his fist to pound unmercifully on the door, it swung open. Logan stood staring down at him like an imperious Czar confronting an infidel.

“I thought I’d be seeing you,” he said, looking both defiant and resolute.

His unflappable nature was something Jimmy was used to, but right now, at this moment? It only infuriated him more than he already was. His fist reared back slowly and plowed right into his mouth.

Wincing, Jimmy cradled his hand in the other. “Damn you!” he cursed loudly.

Friends Turned Lovers

Sitting on the sofa, watching another of her favorite chick-flicks with her head resting on Logan’s shoulder Claire felt utterly content.

“I love you, Logan,” she whispered.    

She cringed at her own stupidity. What had possessed her to say that to him? It would ruin everything. He would never want to see her again and he had been the only thing keeping her from swallowing the end of a rifle.

Had she looked at Logan just then she might have seen the goofy grin spread over his face, but it swiftly vanished. Surely she hadn’t meant it the way he’d hoped for so many years. She was just a friend and married to his best friend no less. No, she would never see him as she does Jimmy. They would always be just friends.

Now and Forever by Alexandra Heep

 Every once in a while, a friend will allow me to post one of their creative pieces, a sweet poem, thoughtful reflection or a chilling tale. This time I thank Alexandra Heep, who blogs at a Heep of Everything for the honor of hosting one of her many poems.

Now and Forever by Alexandra Heep

Now - it is here in the blink of an eye
It can stay and make a moment so still
Or float on like a cloud and pass you by
It can move quick as lightning if you will

Forever can't be without many now's
For some it is pain, for others it's joy
It's also part of many vain vows
Hard to keep, hard to hold, never a toy

Now and forever beginning or end?
More than words, more than time, they're destiny
Either can break, sustain, or even mend
They cause and affect, never cease to be

Use either wisely and pay them respect
Sages know they bring what you don't expect

Ch2 Insanely Eccentric

“You’re insane! You do realize that, don’t you?” Ben growled.

Jordan grinned at his older brother as he lazily folded his shirt before placing it carefully into his suitcase. “And I keep telling you when you’ve got enough money it’s called being eccentric,” he replied.

“Eccentric is showing up at a business meeting wearing a flowery bonnet and a loincloth. Going to Europe with a complete stranger is insane,” he retorted.

Jordan straightened up looking pensive. “I should do that. Would any of those sourpusses at our corporate meetings even crack a smile if I showed up wearing a loincloth and flowery bonnet? Be worth doing it just to see their reaction.”

Ben glared at him. “Will you be serious for a minute?”

 “I am. I’ve been working on my abs. I could get away with a loincloth. The flowery bonnet, though... not so sure about that,” Jordan said.

Ben made his typical growling sound and tossed a pillow at him. “What are you thinking, Jordan? This woman could be a psycho or worse. You don’t know her,” he said anxiously.
