I'm not sure how I can explain how it feels to finish a story like this. I love these characters. I love their story. I love the secondary characters and their stories. In other words, these are friends, and saying goodbye is hard. Epilogue A gradually building roar caught their attention first. Th...

Continued from previous post ****** The dance floor of the rustic park pavilion was filled with couples. The buffet dinner had been cleared away and a friend of Kyle’s was spinning a nice mix of music. Alex and Svea slow danced to every song, no matter how fast the beat, swaying together in each ot...

Part 27 "Where's Liz?" Roused from distant thoughts, Kyle turned from the sliding doors of Max's patio and frowned at Jesse. "What do you mean 'Where's Liz?' She supposed to be with you guys." "I know! And it's almost time for her hair appointment. I can’t find her and we've only got 6 hours before...

Part 26 It was good to be home. The weeks since Max left—even before, actually—had been a roller coaster of emotional lows and highs, but something about coming back, together, had life cruising on an even keel. Of course, most people wouldn’t have considered planning for a wedding and a baby to be...

A moment of personal reflection, if you'll indulge me: ILLINOIS just came back to beat Arizona in overtime in one of the most amazing basketball games ever played!!! :shock: :D :!: As fans, we despaired, then almost accepted what seemed inevitable. But the players never did. I'm completely drained!...

Part 24 The kiss brought him layer by dreamy layer from the depths of sleep. He dreamt at first it was Liz, blossoming with their first child and more beautiful with it every day. She was murmuring something against his mouth, but he couldn’t quite make it out. Something about “late.” Too late? Wha...

Part 23 Dr. Pratt realized his mistake immediately. He had assumed that a woman like Liz—apparently intelligent, self-aware, and in a committed relationship—who was about 10 weeks into her pregnancy would have known, or at least strongly suspected, that she was pregnant. It should have occurred to ...

Continued from last post ***** Max heard them leave, feigning sleep so he would be left alone to think. Hearing Mrs. Parker whip off that quote had reminded him of Liz’s little habit. How many times had she tossed out one of those pearls of wisdom, just off the cuff like she had a million of them? ...

Part 22 Jeff swore under his breath when the phone rang. They’d hardly had any sleep in two days, and now that they were finally in bed, the damn phone was ringing. Didn’t anyone respect civilized hours anymore? “What!” “Mr. Parker?” “Yes. What do you want?” “It’s Dr. Pratt. I’m not quite sure how ...

Part 21 It was like trading one prison for another. The guards in this one were nicer, of course—they were solicitous of his condition, fed him at regular intervals, and dripped with sympathetic smiles. At least that’s how it was between the poke of needles, constant blood pressure checks, and test...
