Still life: Wolf In Chalk

Clementine’s porcelain hand tightened around hers and pulled her down the hallway. Leona let the girl escort her up the stairs. Her cousin’s enthusiasm, like the radiance of the sun, was inescapable and warming. As they climbed up and up, Leona’s burdens felt further and further away. When they reached the landing, she desired only sleep.

Alone Again

Leona waited until she’d exited the office before wiping away a fat tear from her cheek. The heavy door closed with a thud behind her. Exhausted from the exchange, she leaned against the wall and sighed.

She was alone again.

Knitters Strive

“Yeah, maybe.  Let’s talk about something else.  Are you done with your swatch, Ainsling?”

Ainsling held up her square of knit work, the third attempt at reaching the correct gauge.  She laid it down and set a special ruler over it to count the stitches horizontally and vertically.  Finally, she got gauge!

 “Cool!  So, if I follow the instructions, it will be a perfect fit, right?”

Many of the knitters around them giggled. 

Ainsling looked at them quizzically.

“Well, that’s not always how it works out, but it’s the best way to aim for the goal.  Knitters strive to get gauge but—I know I’ve said it before and I will say it again—knitting keeps you humble,” Ellen chuckled.

Alone Again

Leona felt a wave of sadness. She had found her family. But
it was a family that only partially wanted her. Aunt Franny doted
on her, but Uncle Ezra would be relieved she was leaving.
Clementine usually acted loving toward her, but Leona feared
the girl’s fickleness. What would happen if she fell out of
Clementine’s favor?
It didn’t matter. Soon, Leona would be alone again.

Hustle and Bustle

Again, Clementine was thankful they lived in Boston. She
loved the sea air, the changing leaves on the trees lining the
streets, the hustle and bustle. She imagined she would grow quite
bored caring for sheep or tending to a field. Nothing could
change her mind.

Too Late

Fighting Werewolves was instinctual for Wardens. Yet, she’d
failed Justine, arriving too late to battle Luke. The guilt of this
pressured Leona to stop trying. What if I fail again?

St. Lucia “Wait for Love” | Sidewalk Sessions

I can’t believe what I saw yesterday
Too many people trying to walk away
Now I believe that you may disagree
That there’s a reason right in front of me

When are you going to start
Making up your heart?
It is never too late for love to come back
I don’t know where to go
I don’t know who to show
There’s nothing left but to wait for love…

Get St. Lucia!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Live On A Pig Farm

She felt quite strongly about him already. Is this love? Is this
what it feels like? Wonderful, light, as if she were floating on
air. Just the thought of his pretty eyes made her stomach flutter.
If he asked her to, she would live on a pig farm.
