Your words have power

Today, I thought I’d talk about the power our words carry when we speak to people that maybe we know very well or maybe we don’t know at all. Whoever’s heard a rumour at school about themselves which was not true and has experienced the glares and smirks of people passing by them, will probably…

Mistakes are for learning, not repeating…

Mistakes are for learning, not repeating or at least that’s what they say. Still, for some reason we tend to make the same mistake more than once. Sometimes twice and even ten times until we’re certain the outcome won’t be any different. More often than not we don’t want to seem like we’re quitters, people…

Where I would stay forever… (MB #24)

I hear a beeping sound in the distance, scratching my brain as it seems to come closer when I woke up from my sleep. Everything around me looks hazy and bright, blinding my vision from being held in the dark for so many days in a row. I’d forgotten how bright it could get during…

I didn’t even get to hold her… (MB #23)

I expected joy and a happy ending, once we found Mia in what appeared to be an abandoned warehouse. I anticipated a feeling of relief washing over me as Thompson and his agents brought her out, or at least a sense of accomplishment that we had won. Yet, I didn’t feel any of that, not…

You’re lucky to be loved

When you spend most of your teenage years dreaming of movie stars and singers you would secretly love to marry, you end up with high expectations of love. You want someone this tall and that rich with a type of car and a certain job, which you yourself sometimes cannot achieve but expect your perfect…

Our last hope (MB #22)

The clock ticked by in slow motions ready to hit 6 o’clock and I stretched my arms over my head to ease the numbness of my body. The intensive care unit was empty with the exception of two of John’s deputies and a nurse. I shifted against the uncomfortable chair that had hosted me for…

Let me say goodbye to her… (MB #21)

It’s late at night when a loud noise startles me and wakes me up from my sleep. A powerful bang on my door jolts me from my nightmares and makes me run to the window in nothing but a pair of boxers, searching for anyone that might be in on my front porch. Grams… Hurrying…

Are you going to kill him? (MB #20)

I arched my back slightly, hoping to ease some of the tension from my muscles as a result of sitting in the same position for hours and hours every single day. Tied to a chair in a dark room where I could never tell if it was day or night, I sat in silence sometimes…

Grandma’s wisdom…(MB #18)

Days went by in a haze and my hopes of ever finding Mia went with them. Sleepless nights and mediocre days slipped through my fingers as the chances of ever seeing the one I loved disappeared. I couldn’t understand how no one could tell me anything of her whereabouts, how no one could shed some…

Find me… (MB #17)

‘All I want is for you to do your job, Sheriff! I yelled in exasperation, seeing red everytime he addressed her as a criminal that didn’t deserve the benefit of the doubt. ‘Hunter, no one forced their entry in your home, there’s no signs of a struggle. There’s little I can do, since all you’ve…

A grandmother’s love (MB #15)

I woke up with a startle, confused by my surroundings but immediately comforted by the scent of Hunter’ pillow next to my head, reminding me exactly of who I’d slept next to the night before. I could hear muffled voices coming from downstairs and as the exchanges got louder I got the impression the conversation…

Because I love you… (MB #14)

I clocked in earlier and instead of having dinner with Hunter, I sulked in the guest room he had assigned me to, all alone, fighting my stomach’s protest at the smell of what I could only assume was roast. Loki had abandoned me to sleep by Hunter’s fireplace in an adorable furry ball and I…
