Dawn

I sit down on the snow when the night has just reached its darkest hour. There are barely any stars visible in the sky anymore and the moon is just a thin sliver about to be extinguished altogether. Tomorrow it will again be on its way back to full. Not that I’ll see...

Stop that wedding

“Don’t say yes” I say just as Lana is about to say “I do”.My heart is trying to burst out of the very expensive bridesmaid’s dress Lana got for me. Behind me, Carrie is groaning and muttering how she should have been the maid of honor, because she...
