She's late
It is 6:00 pm and crowds arriving home from their activities to their families, pets, and that special someone disturbed the roads. Doors kept opening with people entering their residences. You could hear the loud noises of emotions, arguments, and conversations from every angle of the streets. Far west of Brooklyn, where the streets gleam and never fall asleep, stood a house near the Harper family bakeshop. Its owner appears to be lonesome, yet he is a kind married guy who endured being devoted to his spouse. The door of his yellow-painted home opened, and he stepped in, with his hands occupied with Jennie's fa

Broken words
A stiff breeze carried a quiver down Jackson's spinal cord. And outside the snow was thick on the footway. The snow had sheltered the trees and presented them sparkling at first sight. The delivery guy had a thick sweater concealing his uniform. His hair was messy from the snow."You are Mr. David, right?" He inquired while he shivered from the chill."That's correct, although I did not request flowers. I purchased mine this afternoon. Is there a possibility you got the order wrong?" Jackson answered while the delivery man laid the bouquet in his hands.

Uncomfortable
The next morning the sun had awakened, and the Lenovo smart clock on the desk next to the bed ticks. Jackson tossed on the mattress to avoid the irritating noise from his alarm clock. He did not want to wake up from the bed. His heart still hurts from last night's incident. And what he desires is to stay in bed and not have to go out. He did not want to explain himself to his best friend. Who always notices when he's depressed. However, what he is experiencing is worse than depression. It is a heartbreak without the breakup part. Who could have guessed that he would spend his anniversary mobbing and alone in bed

She's special
"Honk..." Jackson signals the car ahead of him to ride faster, except his effort was of no use. The driver kept driving beneath the speed limit on a road that barely had traffic. Eventually, the policeman pulled him o

She's home
The powerful wind blew through the yellow house when the door opened, and an À la mode woman stepped in. She turned on the light and felt disgusted by how dirty the living and dining room appeared. Empty alcohol bottles and dirty dishes with food in them were on the dining table. Burn out candles, rose petals, and daisies scattered on the floor. Jennie became upset. The one thing she despises the most is littering, and Jackson knew that. He had never been this sloppy since they lived together because he understood it offended her. "What has changed about him over these past months?" She questions herself when she enters the kitchen and notices stains, empty whiskey bottles, and spilled food spots on her white marble counter. However, what alarmed her the most were the several bloodstains on the table. Jennie felt anxious, and her mind when wild. She thought something severe had happened to her husband, but she cou

What's happening to us?
"Hey Steven, is that invitation still open? I believe Jennie loves to bandage and reopen my wounds! She left me a voicemail while I drove home, saying it is unlikely for her to arrive home tonight because the airline delayed her flight. I just reached home, and I need to drink my frustration." He told his best friend.   The other end of the line remained mute. Steven knew that Jackson felt hurt, and when he got heartbroken, alcohol usually became his best friend.   After a few seconds, Steven replied, "I got a date, plus she is a Hermosa Mujer. I apologize, brother. However, I will book you a ticket. If you can arrange a lady in time, then you can come over. Although, that is impossible because Jennie is the only woman you have eternally accepted. Anyway, I envy you, dude, and I got to hang up cause this party is legit."   As the call ended, Ja

That was mine
Steve POV Staring solely at Julie's lips, I realized that I had fallen in love with her smile. It’s the first time I thought of words like that for anyone other than Chloe, and I don't mean it as a simple statement of truth, but rather as an honest expression of my love for how they pulled upward in the perfect shape. "So…" Julie whispered, staring down at her heels. It should be easy to talk to her, but it felt difficult because she had the same effect that Chloe had on me… they both captured my heart in a way that made me nervous. From how Jackson had looked at me earlier, I knew he was shocked that I attended the club with Chloe, and honestly, I am surprised that she was the one I settled for. Even though the way he acted was damn rude, it was understandable because he has tried several times to break off our toxic relationship. But a six-year bond isn't easily broken because both partners agreed to end the relationship. It has nothing to do with time healing all wounds

She's home
Jackson POV "Is this seat taking?" a masculine voice asked me. At this point, I was moderately wasted with alcohol, and I turned my head to the right to gaze at a built dark skin guy standing over me whose outfit looked superior and deluxe. "Brother, your suit makes you seem stuck up, and it's ruining my pleasant mood.“ I mumbled, judging if I needed someone next to me right now. “ Haha,” a laugh slipped from his lips, and he didn't seem offended by my words. “You can sit near me since you are handsome, and if you are sitting next to me, it is in my favor.“ “Why?“ “Did you notice how those ladies' eyes immediately rolled off me and on you? You are everything I need to make my night perfect." I mumbled, picking up my shot glass. The stare I was getting from the girls from the other table was annoying, and their constant whispering to each other was screwing with me. "I am Chris." The fellow said as he seized the seat next to me. "David, Jackson David," I told him, ignoring th

Tough questions and hurtful answers.
Jackson POV Last night we both barely slept, and never in a million years did I think that this would be us after she finally came home. But I know my wife inside and out, and something was different about her… and I feel shitty that I can not move past that. Her cries kept me up last night, and I could feel the pain she was going through, but I couldn't do anything to help her, not when she wouldn't be honest with me. All I could think about is what this must be like for her right now because we had never gone through something like this before… not once in our love life. Sighing out my frustration, I sat up, resting my feet on the cold tiles, and shut my eyes when I felt the bed move beneath me. Even though Jennie was awake, she said nothing, and I woke from the bed, headed into the bathroom, and locked the door behind me. When I got into the shower, the noise of the doorknob turning a bit aggressively caught my attention, but I turned on the showerhead with a heavy heart.

It's a date. It's not!
Julie POV The sound of a knock echoed in my room before my mother walked inside with a breakfast tray and hangover pills. As she approached my bed, I hastily shut my eyes. But when she kissed my head, I couldn't help but smile at her sweet gesture, even though she does that more than often. Yet, I didn't raise my eyelids since I was pretending to sleep because I couldn't sleep last night. It's hard when I'm trying not to think about Steven. All night, I could not stop thinking about him even though we just met. I kept remembering the sparkle in his eyes, hearing his voice, and the way he smiled when he spoke to me. It was no secret that he was so captivating, and it took my breath away, and my poor heart felt drawn to him as an arrow stuck in its target. "Jul, wake up and have breakfast." My mother's voice flowed in my ear. When she hit me gently, I still didn't want to wake up because it felt nice to be in bed, and that's what I wanted today… to stay in my room. "Do you nee
