“I tried, but I don’t love you. I hate hurting you. I’m sorry I cheated.”

“Are you? How do you switch your emotions off like that? Like a light-switch?” Jen’s voice was shrill.

Michael met her eyes but refused to answer. She stumbled into the living-room deaf to his begging. The back door slammed and his admissions ravaged her heart. These new wounds bled, sucking the life from her body. He’d hung her out to dry.

Dizziness overcame her and Jen lay on the couch, head buried in a pillow. She tried to absorb her ex-fiancés words, but her stomach was queasy and a strange ache grew inside her. It clenched and tightened, a fist squeezing her heart. Michael’s insidious behavior, shocked her. Her thoughts circled and her conscience hammered until she couldn’t stop them from revealing missed clues.

Jen was overcome with a sense of hollowness. Tears stung, traveling down the plains of her face as she peered into the fireplace mirror eyes flared-red, swollen with flat-gray irises; she felt emotionless and weary. There would be no more sunrises in life, not now, not ever.

Her heart ached, and the tangible throbbing pulsed and amplified until she couldn’t hide. Sobs wracked Jen’s body. She shivered, even when she pulled over a thick throw. Michael’s festering splinter of betrayal infected her heart and savaged her; nothing could ease Jen’s suffering.

Cyranny's Cove

We’ve just turned the calendar’s page again, and following January and February parties’ success, I think it is time we give it another round!

Some of you might have noticed that I have been pretty quiet lately. I appologize for that… I know I’ve missed a lot of good posts, and haven’t been the most creative. I guess winter is starting to kick in, and my energy is running low. What better way to crank that up, than by throwing a party, right??

Trina suggested a sleepover theme, and I think that’s a great idea! No fussing around getting all prepped up, and preparing fancy foods and drinks. I’m throwing a couple of logs in the fire place, I’ll prepare hot chocolate, coffee and lots of yummy cookies, and you just bring your smile and stories to tell!
