Closing my eyes, I drifted off to my happy place of being with Sabrina.
“Bella, I miss kissing your lips,” I said.
“I miss you too baby.”
“When are you coming home?” I inquired.
“I’m not sure, it’s pretty busy at work today. We just closed a big deal.” Sabrina replied.
“What are you wearing?”
“Antonio is that why you called me. Not to say hi, good afternoon, how’s your day, like any
normal boyfriend. ” Sabrina joked.
“Babe, I haven’t touched you in over 8hrs, I need my fix.”
“You are so spoiled,” Sabrina replied.
“That goes both way’s baby. Are you alone in your office?” I asked.
“Yes.”
“Touch yourself for me. I want to hear you scream my name.” I demanded.
“I’m at my place of business Tony. What if someone walks in or hears me.”
“Get up and lock the door.”
“You owe me for this mister. I want three orgasms and a foot massage later today.”
Sabrina informed.
I burst into laughter at the other end of the phone.
CENSORED
“Tony, did you hear me? Tony…,” Carlo snapped me out of my thoughts, nudging me in the
arm.
“Sorry, what did you say?” I asked.
“Are you paying attention, or are you daydreaming about that Sabrina?”
Carlo walked up to our family home and opened the door. I walked in behind him.
“Focus on your own love life and let me worry about mine.”

“Destria Waves”
Excerpt
Slowly, he perched the violin on his shoulder and raised his bow. There was a wave of whispers going around the room, but that all stopped when he began to play. The piece was slow,
but didn’t lack depth. I found my head swimming with emotion as the music took over my mind.
I lost sight of his fingers moving and the crescendo of sounds buckled down over my ears until every note reverberated twice fold.
Then I smelled the flowers. Why now? Mason was still on stage, his arm perfectly bent, his dark Japanese hair framed around his face. But the pale haired woman with the beautiful
wings stood beside him, her lithe fingers inches from his strands of hair. Holding my breath, I
tried to move forward to push her away from him, but she only chuckled.
In my head, her words were like air. “I would not harm your shikisha. You would not manage without.”
Then there was applause so loud my ears were deaf to everything else. I closed my eyes
and when I looked up, she was gone. Finding my feeling in my hands, I clapped until my skin felt raw.
There were many more auditions before mine. Dance solos that were both lively and
solemn, violin, flute, and piano pieces. And drama monologues of all kinds. After four hours, it
was my turn, and with weary legs from sitting for so long, I trudged up the stairs.
It was courteous to stay after you’d auditioned, so there were still a lot of students
remaining in the hot auditorium. I could only hope they would turn the air on for the actual
concert.
Behind the stage was a darkened narrow space with stairs leading down to where I
assumed the dressing rooms were. The layout seemed common enough for a large stage.
In a daze, I brushed against a guy standing near the curtain. I muttered an apology, but I
could feel his eyes on me as I made my way to the end of the line.
My hand was warm where I’d grazed his arm, but when I tried to look at him, I saw he
was already on stage. He was tall, so I could see he had light brown hair tinged with golden
streaks. He kept his back to me as he crossed over to the piano and clumsily sat down. He looked
more nervous than Nora had.
I’d always thought Mason was the best teenage musician I’d ever heard. But the sounds
that came from the brunette’s fingers drove me into a whole new state of appreciation.
If they did a duet, they would be able to bring people to tears.

As Jed and the Navajo boy make their way north to Smith Junction, a sudden sandstorm diverts them to the small town of Hope’s End. They take refuge from the storm in the saloon with some of the townspeople.

Ordering Bobby to move toward the wall, Chad set his end of the heavy hutch
down and eased it into standing position. “This thing weighs a ton,” he groaned, rubbing
his back.
Bobby flopped back against the wall, his chest heaving and eyes bugging.
Glancing back and forth between the kitchen and the hutch, Julia frowned. “Do
you think this will work?”
Chad brushed his hands together. “Will what work?”
Reluctant but with no one to ask, Julia waved for him to follow and wandered into
the kitchen, Ringo at her feet. “I bought those two hutches to put on either side of the
sink,” she said over her shoulder, “but the sink needs to be moved under the window.”
Trailing behind her, Chad stopped in the center of the kitchen. She continued
toward the old sink and ratty broken cabinets. He glanced from the sink to the window.
“You’re not going to put in new cabinets and counter tops?”
“I don’t think so…” Julia answered, deep in thought, purposely keeping her gaze
from Chad as much as possible.
He walked in a circle, critically surveying the sink, then stared at the wall with a
window. “I’m not sure the sink and both those hutches will fit along this wall.”
Julia winced, her eyes finally settling on his face. “Yeah, I should have measured
before I bought them.”
“Don’t panic yet,” Chad muttered as he unclipped the tape measure off his belt.
With an efficient whir and a click, the tape spread along the floor from wall to wall.

“Let’s see, looks like twelve-foot, one and a half clearance from base board to base
board,” he mumbled, rewinding half the tape.
He moved to the sink and Julia scuttled out of his way, as if to avoid the
masculine force field he emanated into the room. He stretched the tape across the length
of the ancient piece of porcelain and bent to get a closer look. “Almost thirty-six inches.”
The tape retracted with a snap. He crossed his arms across his chest and stared at
the stained grooves of the drain board. One calloused hand reached out to test the old
fashioned hot and cold taps with X-shaped handles. “You really want to keep this dirty
old thing? I’m sure you could get a good deal on a nice new one…”
Julia wandered back to the sink, her eyes riveted on Chad’s hand, but she ran her
fingers along the curved front edge.“ Well, not the broken cupboards but I’m keeping the
sink. Becky says it will clean up and I like it; it fits the house.”
His brows rose. “Okay then,” he said with a shrug, “let’s see how wide that hutch
is.” He turned and strode back to the living room, Ringo following at his heels.
Her steps dragging, enjoying the help far more than she should and lost in
confusing notions about Chad, Julia followed behind him. Giving herself a mental shake,
she told herself to pull it together because she required his strength, knowledge, and no-
nonsense approach to the project. After all, she certainly had no idea where to start the
kitchen reno.
Pulling out the tape, Chad measured across the width then the height of the hutch,
then walked past Julia toward the kitchen. She followed, forcing herself to focus only on
the furniture.
When she got back to the kitchen, Chad held the tape propped in front of him at

hip level with one hand, the yellow steel kinked out and extended to measure along the
wall.
His stance was purely male, bringing a completely different visual to Julia’s mind,
and it didn’t involve a tape measure.
He glanced up at her then did a double take at her expression. His eyebrows rose a
fraction of an inch in question, as if he could hear her hormones screaming.
Embarrassed to be caught with her hand in the proverbial cookie jar, Julia
straightened her spine and met his gaze, her chin high, her eyes cool.
As if slapped, the tape measure crinkled to the floor with a clatter and Chad tore
his bewildered gaze away from Julia. Shifting his feet to get back on track, he gave the
tape a few expert flips and kinks and measured from floor to ceiling and then from the
corner of the room to the center of the window.
Feeling surprisingly wretched over dousing the warmth in his eyes when he was
just trying to help, Julia retreated a step, rubbing her forehead with her fingertips.
Holding the tape in place again with his hip cocked, trying to explain further, Chad
turned to Julia. “As you can see, it’s five-foot six to the center of the window and the sink
is thirty-six inches wide. If you divide the sink by half, then the hutch can’t be wider than
forty-eight inches or your sink won’t be centered under the window. Problem is, that
hutch is just over four foot four.” He gazed at her expectantly, waiting, the tape extending
from his hip to the wall, twitching slightly, his expression one of concentration.
Silence filled the room as Julia struggled to focus on Chad’s words, not the stiff
steel tape extending across the room from his crotch.
Embarrassed and flustered, Julia licked her lips, then shook her head, once again

reining herself in.
His brow lifted, as if he knew she was sexually addled, but had no idea what her
problem was.
Awkwardly, she glanced toward the window, then back to Chad. Withdrawing
mentally and scolding herself, she attempting to break the spell, but failed miserably. A
spark of surprised interest glittered in his eye when their gaze clashed, and that catalyst
pushed Julia over the edge. She raised her chin, shuttering her expression once again.
Chad’s presence darkened at her blatant dismissal and the tape measure whirred
and clattered back up into the roll in his hand; the connection between them abruptly
severed.
