The Bet; Part One

Prologue The three ladies laughter filled the air. Giving the warm spring day and even more dreamy air to it. They sat on the restaurant’s private veranda. It was only used for the very important guests. Today that happened to Be Yvaine and her fellow co-workers and best friends Dior and Echo. Yvaine was 5’7 with long white hair. She had beautiful creamy caramel skin perfect almond shaped eyes, a small nose and luscious natural pouty lips. She was a knockout by anyone’s standards. Today she wore a simple white tank top with black skinny jeans and black timberland stiletto boots. Tennis bracelets adorned both her wrists. A vintage Chanel gold link belt and matching gold Chanel earrings put a touch of urban class to the outfit and she wore her shoulder length hair up in a ponytail. Yes, Yvaine was sexy, smart and getting paid to do just that….

Problem? No, just a writer…

Have you ever been caught staring at someone? Come on, you know you have. I’m a people watcher. It’s part of being a writer. I’ve been sitting in a crowded room before and noticed someone doing something out of sync with everyone else. Of course then my overactive imagination stitches a story regarding why they’re acting different. I’ve actually written stories based on people watching. It’s really fun to sit back and watch a couple in love. You wonder what their story is and then you piece it together with your own spin. Maybe they met by chance or have been friends for years and turned the tables. What’s really fun is you don’t know their true story, but your imagination can expand on what the eye sees. If they’re holding hands and giving those cute lovey looks, you can expand on the romance side of the story. Maybe they’re…

A Curse of the Heart

Chapter 1 Rebecca Linwood sat up in bed, her wide eyes scouring the shadows, flitting between the bedroom door, the window and the armoire, searching for the source of the mysterious noise. She thought she saw a shadow, a dark faceless figure forming before her, but she knew that her mind was playing its tricks. The key to the door still hung on its black ribbon around her neck, the metal pressed flat against her skin as a comforting reminder. The thought did not stop her heart from racing, as this thing she feared was not bound by the usual laws of nature. It was not a physical being; it was not something that could be touched or reasoned with. It was nothing more than a whisper carried on a gentle breeze, a curse from the lips of those foolish enough to question its power and doubt its credibility. Even…

Annie.. “Men Fake it, Women Take it”

Another typical Wednesday night. Annie and Teddy were watching a reality show about a couple having a baby with the man putting on a pregnancy suit and gaining weight along with his wife. The husband said it was the hardest nine months of his life. By the sixth month he wanted to scale back his fluid input to stop urinating so much, but he couldn’t, he had to match his wife intake. Teddy said “it’s not as bad as the husband made it out to be.” Annie gave Teddy the look, yes, that look women give when they “Know” men are from outer space and said “you have no ideal how much pain you men put us women through.” Teddy asked “what pain?” “What pain! Pain from the beginning of a relation through childbirth, that’s what pain Mister” Annie replied. Teddy asked what pain did he put her through at…

Oscar 2015 Makeup Artist Winners: Who Are They?

As much as the success of a movie depends on direction, acting and costumes, makeup and hairstyling also plays an important role in making it a hit and bagging awards. Indeed, it requires a lot of research, study and ingenuity to understand makeup requirements of the cast of a film and do justice with their characters, and there are only few people who are able to do it. Frances Hannon and Mark Coulier are two of those talented and creative makeup artists who surprised the audience, film fraternity and other nominated makeup artists by winning the Best Makeup and Hair styling Award for ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ movie during 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA on 22 Feb 15. However, while their work was appreciated and lauded, their achievement was followed by diatribe by some critics who thought Foxcatcher’s Bill Corso and Dennins Liddiard would…

The Station (Part of Chapter 7)

“Put down your weapons!” he yelled. Valerie looked to her mother in fear. She returned her frightened expression. The people around them gasped and whispered to one another, frantically. “Stay where you are!” he shouted for a second time. The tension was as thick as butter and the only thing that could cut through it was the hot knife of revelation. The crowd was dying to know who was on the other side of that wall. They wanted to know why they were here, how many there were, and what they wanted. And they wanted to know now. With staggering anxiety, the people impatiently waited for the gate to lift and reveal the answers. A minute or two passed before her father handed his gun off to a colleague and motioned for him to raise the gate. Then he climbed down the ladder, hastily. When he reached the ground, he…

Annie…”Birthday, don’t blow candles, you have a Husband”

It hit Teddy all of a sudden, he hasn’t seen Annie in ten minutes and it’s quiet. Annie is always heard or seen, Teddy got up and when looking for his wife. He found her in the kitchen sitting at the pleasure bar, she never sits there, she calls it her Saturday morning Teddy pleasure table. Teddy walked up behind her, put his arms around her neck and began to fondle her breast. Teddy asked “what’s on your mind honey?” “Teddy would you like to have my breast bigger” she responded in an excited voice. Whoa, where did that come from! I love your breast the size they are, can’t you tell by how much I play with them. Annie turned to face Teddy and replied, “I know, that’s why I thought you might want them bigger.” Teddy laughed and told her these 36 A, D, Z or whatever letter…
