Her fingers brushed a stray lock of hair and tucked it behind my ear. She said, “Pink is a pretty colour, Lass.” A simple gesture yet profoundly intimate. I’d forgotten. It’s been so long  since I felt my mother’s touch. ~ The Stranger

If only I could bring you back, start you over.   I’d tell you: ‘worth’ isn’t a tailored suit, a fancy car, or the next big deal.   It’s about the ones who sit with you in the dark, count stars, and hear you in your silence.   It’s about the ones who find you, dust you off, and blast the radio in your car. … Read More

She was so close. Amber specks haloed the inky pupils of her eyes, glimmered, blind siding him. What was it about her face? Symmetrical yet one calculation off as if  a sculptor’s cautious touch, slipped and pressed her left brow. This slight lent her a curious look, a spark of perpetual surprise.
