Candy Crush

This one started as an entry to the Feb 2016 Crush Mini-Competition. The name came from the game (a former, temporary addiction) but the game has nothing to do with the story. As happens on occasions, the story kept growing, and I was only half way through when the competition deadline went whistling past. I persevered though.

I actually thought I hadn’t finished it, so it was a little surprise, when I dug it out earlier today, to find that it was complete, albeit that most of it seemed to have been written on my phone, which meant that parts were all but unreadable, thanks to the Autokorrect Nazis in my former piece of junk. For that, and many other reasons, I will never be tempted to buy a Widows phone again.

Anyway, I’ve spent an enjoyable day reacquainting myself with this little piece, and fixing (I hope) most if not all of the buggerups. I hope you all find it just as enjoyable. Please share your thoughts and feelings at the end. Remember, it takes twenty-six muscles to frown, four to smile, and only one to click on that comment button (then maybe one or two more to add some text). I really love hearing from you. Private messages are good if you want to stay anonymous.

Becoming Sarah Part 3

It was Saturday and James woke up and got out of bed before the alarm went off. It was only a quarter of hour before it was scheduled to go off, but him beating the rooster was unusual. Plus when he did, he usually just stayed in bed. Not today, James did not do his normal routine of take his time getting ready to start his day. The man who was greeting the day head on was ready to go out the door before the alarm went off.

11th Sun: Chapter 14: [XXX] Empowerment

I’ve been on the station nearly a week. It’s taking this long for Bob’s Gun’s to get their money together, and I’m beginning to think they’re jerking me around.

But that’s not why I’m staying.

I’ve been sleeping in that weird bed for three nights. Well we do a lot less than sleep. That is, very little sleep goes on in the bed. Sort of.

For three days I’ve slept in, while Lia goes off to work her ten hours. Hard is the kind of place that stay open at her convenience, and the regulars know when to come. The non-regulars find somewhere soft to drink.

Day 86

Hiya Pink Diva

So anything new with you, me not really. You know the same old same old. Had a bunch of people over for a party and it went better than I could had imagined. Yes, I am so happy the party went great.

Dana and I were nervous at the beginning, for we wanted our friends to get along. Stacy was also a little nervous but I think that was more for she helped with the food. By the way she looked stunning tonight.

Why Haven't You

Author's Notes: This is a stand alone story which use some of the characters from Why Not. You do not need to read Why Not to enjoy this story. While enjoy it as much as someone can enjoy what I write.

Why Not

Author's Note: I am trying something different in my style of story telling.

Feeling exacerbated by yet again hearing the same question from another worried friend, Lizzy demanded to know. “Why Not!?”

Elizabeth Potter was sick of having to explain and justify why she was going out with who was the perfect man for her. The lady was sick of defending her choice. From now on she was going to make the people who asked defend the question. It was a stupid question which people used just to show their disapproval of who she was with.

The Pink Diva Chronicles Day 77-84

Day 78

This is how life should be Pink Diva; the feeling of contentment, happiness and belonging I have right now as I write in you. I never felt as happy doing nothing in my life as I am at this moment. I am just curled up on the couch next to my man who is enjoying playing a video game.

The old shop they go to has more than just a corset as they are transported to an alternate world. He slowly learns about the world and that her future husband is there to meet her for the first time and something strange happens.

Dreams Are Fulfilled by Me, Desires by You

Dreams are fulfilled by me, the desires by you.

It was a dreary Saturday afternoon as Daniel Samuelsson walked under a dreary sky to enter a dreary mall, to just be around dreary people while he tries to find something bright at one of the dreary stores filled with dreary goods to lighten his dreary mood from him having a dreary life. Daniel did not really believe his life was really that dull, lifeless and depressing. It was just February, the worse month of the year for him.

The Cauldron

In a world where magic is dispensed to everyone on their eighteenth birthday people look forward to the day they stand beneath the Cauldron that gives out magic. That is everyone but Jaden as he’s not like everyone else. What will happen when he is called?

The Cauldron

Footprints in the Sea Vol 3 49 and 50

Having completed her operation in England, Charlotte and Will return to their island in the South Pacific. There is a rush to familiarise themselves with the progress made in their absence, make new friends and renew old acquaintances.
Whilst Charlotte is doing this, she makes her first of a chain of discoveries, a hoard of laundered currency and packages of uncut heroin!
Then a trip to the scientific laboratories on the south side of Charlotte Island leads to the second discovery; over twelve thousand miles away from where they should be, evidence of an early settlement is discovered with Anglo Celtic Iron Age roundhouses, altar stones and jewellery dating back to a time before the first Roman invasion of Britain!
Shortly after this and whilst on her honeymoon with Will, Charlotte finds a letter written by the settlers who built their original house and two or three days later a hidden casket with more connections to the past!
But there are other discoveries to come. Is there a touch of magic involved? Charlotte becomes suspicious that this might be connected to her meeting in Berkshire with Penelopeia, ancient wife of Odysseus, the Greek hero of Troy and are the water sprite Undine and Goddess Artemis figments of her imagination, the early signs of a mental breakdown or visitors from another dimension?
Perhaps it is a reaction to the events of the past eight months, shipwrecked, marooned, her sexuality confused? Then a battle for her life on the high seas and the biggest shock of all; discovering that all her life she had been intersexed, a male and female sharing the same brain and body and all of this followed by the recent string of astonishing discoveries. Is that too much to ask of a person with XXY chromosomes?

Day 67

Hey there Pink

I am so going to be using you for the foreseeable future. Everytime I find out something new about myself it just leads to so many more questions about who I am. Having your answers about who you are just leading to more questions is one reason I think many people are not introspective.It is for it leads to people having to do more soul searching and finding out things about themselves which they do not like. Then they will have to make a huge decision- change what they do not like or ignore it.

In this and future episode’s of Book 2 I have borrowed very heavily from the excellent ‘Sharpe’ series of books by Bernard Cornwell which describe the times, the country and the life in the army perfectly.
I have avoided using any names in those novels but in a few places I have used Major Sharpe as a cameo character.

Xìngbié; part 13 (of 13): Dádào Xìngbié

Nat woke up feeling groggy. The potion had made him incredibly exhausted—

He bolted upright. The potion! He’d—

The empty vial was still on his bed table. He had tried to down it all at once, but a little bit of pink fluid still clung to the inside of the container.

It didn’t work.

Nat closed his eyes and curled his hands into fists.

It didn’t work.

It didn’t fucking work!

For all of that asshole’s promises, the potion hadn’t done anything!

The Pink Diva Chronicles Day 57-65

Day 57
I do not know where to start. First, I am not mad at Dana no not him, his actions, his action yes.I am mad at what he did. I am very confuse right now. I still cannot believe it happen. I am in shock, why did he do that? I mean what made he think I would like that? I hope he knows that what he did does not change how I feel about him It is actually hard for me to say what he did for I did not expect it. I cannot explain it but he kissed me. He thought that I was gay, I am not gay. Why would he think I am gay?

The Pink Diva Chronicles Day 31-43

Author's Notes: There were no journal entries for Day 31 and 32. Also I know I had not been putting this on each story, thank you all for the help. I had not for I did not want the thanks to come off as just being a pleasantry.

The Pink Diva Chronicles Day 11-17

Day 11
Dear Diary

Sometimes I think I am flighty. I want to write in you and then I don’t. I don’t know. It feels good but I do not think it is right. Even with it feeling natural to write in you I do not think it is right. I can keep a journal for my thoughts. I can keep a notebook even just lying around the house. No for some reason I do it in a book which I have hidden away in my sock drawer. Why do people hide things in a sock drawer? That is the first place people will look in a bedroom room if they wanted some dirt on someone. I know I will keep you under my pillow.

The Double Date

The Double Date

I could feel my stomach flip-flop. “No! Jacob, Why Me? Why does it have to be me?” I ask knowing that I would be disappointed in his answer. His plans always end up with the same result. He gets the girl and I get something broken. I’ve known the guy for 10 years. I was six when he and his family moved in next door. We both started out as average kids. He grew up handsome. I just grew… Kind-of.

Author's Notes: This is an very old attempt at writing in the first person. I am editing it but I want it to feel like a diary. I am also not putting it all out at once for I was up to day 60 something before I gave up on it. This is also a slow transformation. Thank to everyone

The Short Straw

Author's Note: Thank y'all for the help and support.

Rita Soto came into the living room in her little black dress ready for her double dinner date with Elmer Rice and his friend and his friend with benefits. The dress’ hemline was high and showed her her wonderful legs, it was tight to bring attention to her curves and the neckline plunged to highlight her cleavage. She asked her beau “How do I look in this dress dear?”

Elmer would had said she looked great in anything she wore.The man who adores her said “You look great in it my love.”

The Ballad of Natalie and Chloe(Andrew) Chapter 1&2

Author's Note: I hope everyone enjoy me trying to write more of a happy story and thank you all for the help and support.

Chapter one

Walking down the street Andrew could feel everyone was looking at him. He wished that looking was all that the strangers were doing. Everyone he walked by either was staring, leering, ogling , or even pointing and laughing at him. He hated the snickering the most but kept his head up as he made his way to keep his meeting.

Xìngbié; part 12 (of 13): Ultimatum

The inside of the restaurant was cool, even through Nathan’s (Tyler’s) sweatshirt, and dimly lit. There weren’t a lot of people about, possibly due to it still being nine in the morning. Nathan had made sure that the restaurant was open before he came, but it was only now occurring to him how odd it was for a Chinese restaurant to be open so darn early in the day.

Day 1 The Annual Ski Trip Begins
When their family was getting ready for their annual ski trip Chris’s mom had bought him a new pair of long underwear. When he tried them on he couldn’t help but notice how they clung to his legs. “Mom they make me look like I have chicken legs!” Chris had always had a small frame and had been teased for it in the past.
“It’s not as if anyone’s going to see your legs Chris. You’ll be wearing your ski pants. They’re just long johns.”
“But what about in the chalet?”

A Friend in Need is a Friend in Deed -- Chp. 23 Fleet of Foot

I got to know Doug so quickly in fact that it felt like I knew him my whole life. Nothing seemed out of bounds, except my dark secret. And even there Doug got to know me better than I know myself. The real me.
