Waiting

Waiting By Lorne McMillan People around town called him Bobby, but this was not his name. He wasn’t sure from where the name had come, or who had first called him by it. He even thought of himself as Bobby whenever he visited Brooksfield. He came out of the Ultra-Mart store and sat on the bench, placing his shopping bag on the seat beside him. Here, he would wait for his ride to arrive. He hoped it wouldn’t be long; there was no greater waste of time than waiting, as far as he was concerned. He’d rather be forced...

Fated or Mated

  Fated or Mated By Tom Snethen Based on the Novel Do You Have a Marriageable Mother?  Aurora Wolf Journal will be publishing a series of stories based on the above novel in the near future. Coming Soon: “Break-In to a Heart Break” – December First 2017 “Death By Fork” – December Fifteenth 2017 “Shut Out” – January First 2018     I faced a gauntlet through a purgatory of my own making. Ryan Hogue, fifty, unready for whatever awaited. “Wassamatter, honey? Lose your spunk in the lingerie store?” Janet—my wife’s ghost. “You never bought anything that sexy for me.” I’d bought gowns and intimates ten minutes ago on speculation I’d meet a woman soon. The local widower was almost ready to meet someone and totally unfit for romance afterward. I slinked to the concourse wall and removed my jacket, revealing my shirt’s message: Do You Have a Marriageable Mother? I stepped away and bumped a woman I knew. I stumbled but didn’t fall, trying to smile. Her lips moved as she read my shirt. She lifted her cell and clicked. Whoop-tee-do, another Facebook moment. “Buck up, booby, and don’t wet yourself.” My ever-vigilant companion—married for life and beyond. My idea had sounded brilliant yesterday—waltz into the mall’s food court wearing this shirt and engineer a courtship’s beginning. Now I wanted to hide behind the hair I’d surrendered this morning—my...

Baggins

  Baggins By Lorne McMIllan   If Yvonne’s passing was like the ship sinking, then Baggins’ dying was like losing my lifeboat as well. When I was sick, Yvonne had been my rock, my nurse, my love that I depended upon for everything. She kept me afloat through everything. She put me before herself and she paid for that in the long haul. Without her I probably wouldn’t be alive and without me, she might not be dead. Ignoring her own failing health had been her undoing. The doctor said there would have been warning signs that the aneurism...

  Steps Saga Part 5 – All The Ascendant’s Sons By Thomas J. Lauser Letherious’ carriage stopped outside of his home, a villa in the hills outside Minthera. Aside from two lights—one in the atrium, and another in Martin’s bedroom, the building was completely dark. “How about a tip, sir? It’s rather late.” the driver asked as the Senator climbed out of the carriage and approached the villa’s front gate. “For doing your job? Not a chance,” Letherious replied without looking back. The guards opened the front gate, and the Senator walked up the path, through the door and...

Sudden Light

Sudden Light   By Regina Clarke   Aaron walked around the corner of the house and came toward her. Behind him rose the hills of Morongo Valley, dry sand hills spotted with brush that made Cassie think of pale leopards. He had chosen to stay with her. What did that feel like, Cassie wondered, letting go of everything you cared about and loved the way he had done? For her it had been easy. Leaving what she had back in Phoenix had been a blessing, escaping the dull job and the desperate heat and the eternal air conditioning, and...
