Valentine’s Day Reunion part 4

Did you read part 3 first?

He heard Sienna talk to Tim in the kitchen then she was back, carrying a small bottle which he guessed contained that flavoured milk they were talking about. He was surprised when she sat down on the couch next to him, her lower leg pressing along his thigh as she presented him with the bottle with a flourish that made him smile.

“I present to you, the world’s most delicious flavoured milk in the history of flavoured milks,” she said with a smile that made him want to wrap his arms around her and kiss the daylights out of her.

He stopped himself, just, and instead took the offered drink.

“Oh God,” Tim said as he walked back into the lounge carrying three cans of Coke. “Please don’t make sex noises like she does when she drinks that stuff, I beg you.” Continue reading


Valentine’s Day Reunion part 3

Please make sure you’ve read part 1 and part 2 or this won’t make much sense…

“What the fuck was that about?” Tim asked as soon as the front door slammed shut. “I know it’s been a while but I really thought she’d been happy to see you.”

Mike shrugged. If Sienna had chosen to not tell her brother about what had happened five years ago, it was her decision, not his, so he’d keep his mouth shut.

Fuck, she looked good.

She’d looked good when she was twenty one, especially the night of her party, in that little black lacy dress with the plunging neckline but she looked even better now. Curves in all the right places, jeans hugging her figure, making his fingers itch to touch her. Continue reading

Drunk dialling isn’t always unwelcome… (Selina & Donovan part 1)

I randomly got inspired after seeing a photo on Instagram last night.

It ended up being something I’ve never written before, first person, present tense. But that’s what it needed to be written… Hope you enjoy!

When my phone rings at 2am I don’t even bother checking the caller ID, I know it’s Donovan.

“Hey you,” I say with a smile, because I love it when he rings me in the middle of the night. I don’t care if he wakes me up. People get shitty at other people for drunk-texting and drunk-calling them but to me it means that he was thinking about me and decided to do something about it.

“Heyyyy,” replies a rather-drunk sounding Donovan, the noise of the club behind him coming across rather loud in the quiet of my room. “Whatcha doin’?”

Oh boy… must have been a good night if he’s asking what I’m doing at 2am… Continue reading

Valentine’s Day Reunion part 2

In case you missed Part 1… Here is the link.

Their eyes met and she saw the moment he recognised her. Her cheeks were burning and she wished the floor would open and swallow her.

“Sis, you remember Mike, don’t ya?” Tim said with a grin that told her he knew she did, before he pulled her with him into the lounge. She had no choice but to follow.

“Of course I do,” she bit out as they stopped in front of Mike.
“Hi.” He was smiling. Oh god, he was smiling.
“Hi,” she replied, trying not to smile back but his gorgeous smile was infectious.

She removed Tim’s arm from around her, making sure to dig her nails in nice and deep to ensure he was aware of her displeasure. Tim winced but said nothing about it. Continue reading

Valentine’s Day Reunion part 1

This is the start of something I wrote on Valentine’s Day. Then I started my course and haven’t really written anything since. But I’m feeling writey again and I wanted to share this bit with you. A teaser of sorts.

Sienna checked the time again, for the tenth time in about as many minutes – not that it would make Tim appear any faster– and sighed.

Her brother was always late, even on Valentine’s Day, and at the age of twenty-eight, it was very unlikely to change.

It had become their tradition that, if they were both single on Valentine’s Day or their birthdays, they would go out for dinner at Mr Wong’s Chinese Palace.

Tim wasn’t actually single but his lovely girlfriend Sasha was in Thailand on a work assignment for a travel magazine so he’d decided, with Sasha’s blessing, to take Sienna out for dinner. Continue reading

Back at school & loving it **PICSPAM**

We are now in week 5 of term 1 of my course.

The whole thing is 4 terms, in 2 semesters, with 2 weeks holidays between term 1 & 2 and 3 weeks holiday between the 2 semester. Each term is 8 weeks and this time I have my 2 week break at the same time as the kids have theirs. Later in the year, not so much.

On Monday we have Design. There are too many of use for the Mac labs so they split us in two groups, Graphic Design and Fashion Design. Unsurprisingly I picked Fashion Design.

On Tuesday we have what they call ‘Intermedia’. We made a soft cover journal and learned how to do drypoint (scratches on plastic that is then inked and put onto paper in a press). We had to do a playing card from Game of Thrones as a practice and the main assignment is to Photoshop ourselves into a (A3) scene from LoTR or GoT or Vikings or Outlander, then drypoint and print.

On Wednesday we have drawing and have become rather acquainted with the class skeleton, Flexi Fred.

On Thursday we have Art History and as part of that class we went for an overnight trip to the local Marae where we did some scrimshaw (inked etchings on bone) and visited a carved church.

On Friday I spend the day with my wife. ^_^

Here some pics of my work so far! Continue reading
