by Keith It’s 2 a.m. and he’s sitting in the dim light of the bedside lamp. The love of his life lying beside him. Maybe it’s the day, or maybe it’s just because, but he can’t stop thinking of the life they’ve shared together. The day they met and how within a few short hours … Continue reading Love’s Life
by Adam I rest your little head on the stuffed monkey’s lap on top of the changing table. I keep your wobbly head elevated, because it helps keep acid reflux from bubbling to your throat. You hate the hygiene ritual about to happen. I’m not sure why - is it the cool air touching your … Continue reading What Does Love Mean to You?

by Kirk What does love mean to me? That is truly an important question, but I'm afraid I can't answer it right now. You see adventurer, there is an evil king who usurped the throne using forbidden blood magic. This tyrant of terror was once the fool, but he had ambitions. That's what caused him … Continue reading On a Quest
