Her Last First Date

This quick story came from a prompt that was supposed to be about the perfect first date. I decided to switch it up and put a little twist on it. It’s hard to talk about it without ruining it. You’ll see my intentions are pretty self-explanatory, so I’ll let the story do the talking. Her…

Jones Beach, Field 6

In honor of it being abnormally hot out for late-September, I’m going to post something quick I wrote over the summer while sitting on the beach. They were originally written in one giant paragraph, but I’m going to break it up where I see fit. Jones Beach, Field 6 I’m sitting on Jones Beach at…
