I grabbed a handful of the sodden earth and sniffed it."I don't think ma would've liked to see you do that," Warren objected. I flicked him off and took another huge whiff of the scent.I heard grunting and after a few pants, felt a touch on my shoulder. His straight face came into view and the orange light behind him created a halo around his head. "You ready?""I'm sure this is what ma would've wanted." I breathed in and tried to relax my stiff shoulders when Warren picked up the ceramic vase.After he settled into the same kneeling position beside me and we just sat in silence. My mind strayed and I felt he did the same.I would never get over what she did. Not fully but I had that mutual understanding that she felt she was protecting us anyway she could. Admittedly not the best decision as this is where it had led us to; her on the other side and both of us hurting and shattered.
Wriggling my toes in the wet sand, I smiled up at the sun feeling like a kid at Christmas. My shades flipped over my eyes and I smiled at the redhead beside me. "You know, you don't have to be so grumpy on the beach.""Uh, yes I do," she said. "Someone has to be the adult here."I smirked and wrapped my hands around her, stopping further movement and eliciting a yelp from her. "Oh yeah?""Yeah." She bent her head to the side. An open invitation and how could I resist? I lowered my head and dropped a kiss on the curve where her neck met her shoulder earning a shiver in return."No need to get all touchy, people!" The shout made Val jerk in my grip and our heads collided at the sudden movement. "Let's try to keep what goes on in the bedroom, in the bedroom please!""Yeah, we have children in our midst so keep it light and PG." Devin backed her up and I could hear them snicker behind us.After our initial shyness after the graduation cere
*ONE MONTH LATER*Wild cheers tore through the field and caps flew in the air as our graduating set hugged each other with wide smiles plastered on their faces."Congratulations!" Warren crushed me into a hug threatening to cut off my blood circulation but I wouldn't have it any other way. "Told you we'd make it."The huge eagle of happiness and pure joy in my heart only allowed me to nod, smiling widely. Before I could say, Jack, Val snatched me away from his side and right into her tight hug. "Omg, we made it, Rowa!""Yes." I squealed with her as we both jumped multiple times while holding hands. "Now you can give my baby brother the kiss he's been dying for.""Shhh." She covered my mouth with her hands, her eyes wide. After peering over my shoulder, she tried to conceal the vivid blush on her cheeks. "Remember I'm taking things slow.""Slow, shmlow," I scoffed waving my hand as if throwing the idea away. "It's just one k
Deep and varying shades of the sun set set the dark brown of his eyes off , the warmth of his palm over mine a silent reassurance he didn't plan in going anywhere anytime soon. His silence said it all while he waited for me to sift through and try to solve the puzzle of emotions clashing against each other, demanding my attention in my mind."Who would've guessed it?"Even with my eyes concentrated on the miniature view of the city below us and the cars, lights, people, movements seemed to take slow motions but I knew they hurried but it made no difference from this distance, I noticed his head tip back and he drew in an audible breath.He didn't give me a response, silently urging me to continue. I sigh and found his hand giving it a small squeeze."Who would've thought my creep would turn out to be this annoying being beside me."That drew a silent chuckle from him and he tightened his hold in my hand. "True." He
Glistening and bouncing light off each other, both rectangular caskets stood beside each other. People gathered around a few feet away from them as we all bowed our heads waiting for the Reverend to say the final prayers.My eyes felt ran out of tears as I held unto my new brother's arm like a life line cause I felt the earth would shift from under me if I let go.I just met her and we hadn't even connected the way a mother and daughter should and this happened. Her eyes, similar to mine, shone in my mind as she smiled up, warding off the chill of the world around me."I'm so sorry.""My deepest condolences.""She was such a strong woman, unfortunate really.""Are you sure they're even really twins, what if the boy was adopted?""What an unusual pair."All whispers, good and bad were directed at us even as we paid our homage to our mother. Hard to believe that she really laid insi
Ariana's voice came out loud in the void silence of my room as I searched for the blasted phone with my eyes closed, raining curses on the person calling me at this time of the night."Warren speaking." I rubbed my eyes still facing the ceiling."Hey son, your mother is having an episode of coughing and is spitting out her guts and we're in the way to the hospital right now, please meet us there beca—." He literally yelled threatening to destroy my ear drums while an engine revved in the background followed by coughs."Dario, the road!" Her warning drowned his voice before a the line dropped with silence."Dario!" The phone bug into my face where I breathed down the mouthpiece praying nothing bad had happened.My hands dailed his number again, my fingers slipping in the wet screen from my sweaty palm. Nothing added up. Zhurah coughing and the line cutting off abruptly?
Different fragrances and colognes mingled and mixed together with the movements of men in suits and women in long or short evening gowns and huge bonnets perched on their heads.At the top of the stairs, her eyes searched the room hoping to meet the only people that mattered to her at the moment. A hand on her shoulder distracted her sight from the massive double doors left ajar with guest spilling in to the vast room to stare into his concerned gaze."They'll be here."Easier to say and harder to believe."I don't know, I'm not worried about Kovu, it's Kara." She glanced at the door again."You still haven't told then their real names have you?""They're not ready."He stepped behind her, nuzzling her before placing a kiss on it. She relaxed into the huge, warm man with a sigh.His head still lowered, he slid his hands over her hips pulling her into him to feel his ha
His head rested against my lap, a comfortable weight while I ran my singers through his thick locks. Who would've thought my creep would be this guy. This intelligent, beautiful, caring guy with the most enchanting eyes."Why are you looking at me like that?""Like how?""Intense." He sat up and faced me on the large couch. "Like I'm gonna vanish into thin air.""What if you do?"His laughter filled the room and I breathed in concentrating on the sound. He didn't get it. Everything that had happened up took this point and he still stood beside me laughing at my question. Might sound cheesy but I couldn't imagine another day without him. Like a drug, he became addictive. My addiction."I won't," he said with conviction. "And even if I did, I'd hold you so I won't disappear alone." "Great plan."We laughed at our little inside joke and I attempted to braid his hair but only came ha
Mary decided to throw a little party to celebrate her united family and maybe bring her children closer to her.No mater how much she demanded their attention, they always acted aloof around her. Of course they paid her the due respect she needed but she wanted more than that.Dario's hands twirled one thick strand of her hair while she was drowned in her thoughts."What is it Amour?" He asked after noticing her absentminded state. "If you don't want to throw the party, it's fine, we can cancel it.""No," she rushed out and bit on her lip. "That's not the case."He changed his position so he could squat in front of her. "Then what is it?"Mary sighed. She wasn't planning on spoiling his mood or anything but it was chewing in her insides and threatening to reduce hey to nothing is she didn't speak."It's just I can't help but feel like my children don't want to get closer to me."His wor
