Home Sweet Home
The New York City pavement was so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. Bells from bicycles dinged as children road through the streets.

How Did We Get There?
The bed might as well have been a block of ice. With her back to Russell, Shauntell stared straight ahead at the blank wall. She didn’t say anything and honestly, she didn’t need to; her position in the bed, back to Russell, knees curled into her chest, did all the talking for her.

We’ve Got Some Catching Up To Do
For months after Mikey and Paula’s mom took Mikey and up and left him, all Pauly did was cry his eyes out. In the mornings before he started his days, anytime he got a moment to himself, and late at night after he put Paula to bed, all Pauly did was cry. He’d lost the one thing that was most important to him, his family; well at least to third of it anyways. After those few months, Pauly reminded himself that he still had a daughter to look after and provide for. So Pauly dried his eyes and kept it moving. Soon the pain of his wife’s betrayal became dull and didn’t affect him as much, but not a day went by when he didn’t think about his baby boy.

Despite… Continue reading Never Thought I’d See You Again
