    Death ends a life, but it does not end a relationship......................... mired in memories, regrets , hopes and lost dreams. Tomorrow comes anew....with a brand new chance at setting the bar higher and following through with kindness and compassion. Today is the day to start.



    new line...To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black.





    ps. i am horrible at this but never the less i shall make a small attempt. Peace all. mimsy

    mimsy, really liked it. keep posting. please!

    carol, your writing draws me into each and every piece you do. i can see, touch and smell whatever you describe. thought the ending was fantastic, what a surprise. this story needs to be told. sounds like a novel needs to be written.

    Eloquent as always, Mims. Keep the faith and please - keep writing. You are an untapped well of wisdom. Besides, I just like your company!

    Jean, you do a girl good. I won't even pretend to be nonchalant and say something cool like, "danke." Thank you for ALL your encouragement, both on and off the boards.

    Shecrab is conspicuously missing. Hope all is well, Christin. You too, Nodon - this is right up your alley, no?

    So the new first line is still Mimsy's, right? I look forward to reading the posted response.

    To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black as Eve Lewt moves slowly to the car. She kept herself busy trying to remember when the sky didn't have clouds. It's been too long.

    The only thing she could hear was the soft gritty sound of her shoes crunching the sandy street. As she approached the curb that led into the parking lot she fished for her keys that nestled inside her trench coat. Before she could grasp them her car alarm shrieked out. As she shot a glance towards the car she thought she saw a shadow of a form duck down quickly behind the front bumper.

    Now what! Was she imagining seeing something? All she could hear was her own breath, short and fast. She was too far away from the cafe she had just left, her heels were too high to run....

    Wa...? Oh no.....

    She could hear the sound of fast walking, was it towards her, was it away, she decided to turn and run, kicking off her heels, leaving them behind. She ran as fast as the ground would allow her, seeing nothing but the last light in the cafe still on. Was the door locked by now? Could Sam see her if she pounded loudly? Would he still be within earshot of the pounding?

    As she approached the cafe she could see her reflection in the door and windows. And. Could see someone behind her in that reflection!

    Instead of going to the door she veered her way around the side of the building hoping to see Sam in the alleyway or catch the back door open with him ready to finally close up.

    She fell. Scraping her knees and sliding in the alley towards the back of the building. As she rolled over someone was standing over her starting to bend over. She screamed.

    Diplomat, me? Nuh uh. To be honest, you kind of freaked me out with "mired" and "nevertheless I shall make a small attempt." You channeling for lucynymph over there? If so, glad to see you both back on the boards!

    I'm not sure how this works - does Jean post a new line for us?
