Wicked Wednesday #289 — Neighbors

Eliza hoped their neighbors—well the other people on their hotel room floor did not hear everything that had happened in their room. Oscar held her hand, as they walked down the hall and she felt like a teenager. It was such a sweet gesture for him to hold her hand, but everything that had happened […]

Wicked Wednesday #288 — Whispers

There had been whispers, but it was face to face with Oscar that it was confirmed. “So Polly and I have broken up again.” he stated. Eliza looked at him with soft eyes across from the table, while she sipped a glass of Barolo. “How do you feel about it?” she queried. He ran his […]

Wicked Wednesday #287 — Muse

Today is the last day of NaNoWriMo, and I am following my muse. So here is a retro post of when Eliza and Terrence first got together… Eliza pressed her hand to her head. Life was wilder than fiction…she could not have made any of this up. She rolled from side to side on the […]

Wicked Wednesday #283 — Memory Lane

Rafe was asleep beside Eliza, and she could not keep her eyes off of him. She had not been this close to him for awhile. They slept together every night, but this night, she felt closer to him. What they had done together on the highway earlier… She kissed his shoulder, and closed her eyes. […]

Wicked Wednesday #274 — Celebrity

There was a bit of celebrity that Eliza dealt with being involved with Rafe. He was a high roller, and very well off otherwise so being in a relationship with him meant that people noticed her. Sometimes alone, but this time she was with Terrence and the gossip columnist who depicted her inquired as to […]

Wicked Wednesday #270 — Bond

“Who was he?” Terrence had asked when he saw the look Eliza and Oscar exchanged in the stairwell, and now Eliza looked at Oscar. They were at their favorite bar, and Josephine was still there when they got there. “Long time no see,” she had mused while pouring them straight Laphroaig, the smokiness stayed in […]

Wicked Wednesday #269 — Titanic

Eliza did not even bother to turn around, she felt Terrence so close and could smell his scent. She backed away from the painting, and into his hard chest. He put his hands about her shoulders, to brace her.Something in her resisted, and accepted his embrace at the same time.“Don’t resist…” he whispered.Commanded.And she could […]

Wicked Wednesday #268 — Vintage Art

Eliza looked at her face in the mirror, she had tucked into the bathroom because instead of focusing on the vintage artwork she had come to see, she was hiding in the bathroom. She knew that she might have seen Polly at the sale because it was art that Polly sold. She knew that she […]
