A Love Story by Trista Daniell

I asked her,  "How much do you love me?"... She replied,  "I love you, unconditionally." My heart sank. A sigh of sadness escaped my lips. I realized, she was just like the rest - a liar.
 A delusional liar at that! Because, NO MAN (or woman) has mastered  the art of love without  condition. EnTheosTR … Continue reading A Love Story by Trista Daniell

The Unexpected Proposition Pt. IX

I should’ve listened to Sidney. I shouldn’t have come here. I tapped my first pair of ‘Red Bottoms’, courtesy of you-know-who, against the carpet. My eyes surveyed the dimly lit room, different hues of purple linens draped the walls, over-sized arm chairs sat next to small tables in the four corners. A few matching couches … Continue reading The Unexpected Proposition Pt. IX

The Unexpected Proposition Pt VIII

Read Pt I, Pt II, Pt III, Pt IV, Pt V, Pt VI, Pt VII It’d been seven-and-a-half months since I made up with Sidney.

Unexpected Proposition pt. II

Read Part I Here. I expected us to lock eyes once I arrived at the hotel. Instead, I was directed upstairs by the concierge. When I arrived at the room a young woman in all white, with a long black ponytail, greeted me at the door. “Welcome, Ms. Roberts. It’s a pleasure to make your … Continue reading Unexpected Proposition pt. II

The Unexpected Proposition Pt V

Read First: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. I woke up as Sidney struggled to pull me in the house. She was crying and ranting incoherently.

The Attacker I Know – Pt II – Pre-Consciousness By Trista Daniell

Death is hard on the living, but I think it comes to remind us just how fragile life is; and, it urges us to love fiercely and with everything we have. It also serves as a constant reminder that at any moment, our time here can end, and we’d better damn well be prepared to face whatever…Whomever…is on the … Continue reading The Attacker I Know – Pt II – Pre-Consciousness By Trista Daniell

The Attacker I Knew #ShortStory by #TristaDaniell

I thought it was just a bad dream. I didn’t realize it would become a total nightmare. The pain startled me out of my sleep. My face stung from a hard blow and I couldn’t figure out if I was dreaming or awake. WHAP! Backwards I fell onto the floor. Blood spewed as my nose cracked against the … Continue reading The Attacker I Knew #ShortStory by #TristaDaniell
