Jean stood in her mother’s living room back straight as broomstick and temper under a tight grip. “Mother, why are we still arguing over this?” She asked, pacing to the fireplace and back.

Nightmares of Adventure

The trees crowded the road as Ari walked along the darkening street. She fiddled with the flashlight she carried, her thoughts drifting on the chilly wind blowing.

In The Lantern Light

The sunset was beautiful as always while Liam sat in the sand a few feet from the water’s edge, an unlit lantern by his side.
