To Odhis, it sounded like the last kicks of a dying man, a final attempt to epitomize a moment that refused to transcend time. If only he could be her knight in shining… Continue reading NIGHT IN SHINNING HAMA
Coloring the black shades with her queen, in the game she thought she was playing, she didn't realize, until her heart broke into twenty-nine pieces of silver, one shy of Judas, zero dignity, reduced to less than Hosea's wife, because hers came with no title, that she was only for hire, that she was only… Continue reading WIFE FOR HIRE!
