Chapter 8

A first and a question.

We’d parked the station wagon, and walked separately to the student union. I was getting nervous. I had the feeling that if I talked to Al, that what I’d say wouldn’t come out right. But I’d promised Maria that I’d do this, so ...

The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane - Part 13

The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane – Part s3
By Barbara Lynn Terry

Chapter 1 – The extradition hearing is expedited.

Steve Hastings left the jail. He went out to his squad to resume his patrol.

“463 resuming patrol.”

“10-4, 463.”

TG Techie: Chapter 2: Waking Up

Waking Up

I woke up, opened my eyes, and closed them again because it hurt to keep them open. Not that tired-eyes-hurt, but just like they couldn’t focus. I took stock of my surroundings eyes shut.

The first thing I noticed was that my mouth tasted like shit. So bad it had pulled me awake.

Who the hell am I? Book 2 Chapter 3

Chapter 3

I hadn't really got my breath back, but I had managed to turn around and face the guy. I was standing on some grass that was bordering the path. 100 metres behind him there was a dog walker with one of those tiny almost toy dogs. He carried on jogging whilst giving me a top to toe look over, slowing down as he went past me.

Becoming Sarah Part 10

Chapter 10

How the sun shined through the window and onto the bright yellow plastic children play table made it pop out even more in Sally’s room. The only things in the room brighter than the table were the two little girls playing afternoon tea. How could they not be the brightest things in the room, those two had so much fun together.

Becoming Sarah Part 9

Lexie was uncomfortable with her friend not making any comment about how James, as Sarah, had acted towards her and The Gord. It was effortless for her to see the interaction between James and The Gord. How her man retold it, how she heard it from him was how a third party should agree as well. But as each moment of Audrey’s silence on the update passed, Lexie was losing her conviction about how her and her other half viewed James’ actions. Maybe James had taken The Gord’s good-natured humor the wrong way.

Hi All,

I hope everyone is still enjoying the interlude!

This is the second-to-last chapter. I will post the last one some time next week. There is minimal discussion/reference to suicide as a continuation of last chapter--but it is minimal.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Chapter 7

A roomer and more Tammy.

The next morning I stopped by Amy’s dorm to pick her up for breakfast at my house, and I received a sweet kiss. But after that, she was very quiet. So, I asked, “Amy. What’s wrong?”

“Nothing.”, she replied.

“Amy. Something’s wrong. What?”

It Started On A Rainy Afternoon - Part 3

I wore a dark-green cocktail dress which emphasized the feminine curves which I was developing. My father wore an angry expression; angry that my Mother and Emma had practically forced him to be there, angry at me for the way I looked and acted, angry at Gloria, who he didn’t like, and otherwise just plain angry.

Jacinta, part 11

“God, I always feel so out of place every time I come here…” I moan as I step into the vast dance studio, surrounded by my friends.

“I really hope that’s NOT because you feel uncomfortable wearing THAT!” Lauren teases, making me giggle as I stare down at the short-sleeved black leotard and baby pink tights that are covering my body.

“Hell no!” I reply, making my friends giggle and cheer. “It’s just- you know? You girls are all so good at ballet, and I’m still just a beginner… Not to mention the fact that everyone here is, like, famous!”

Chapter 6

Oh, my God! No!

Amy had moved away four years ago, and somehow I’d survived those years of high school. My Cousin Mary helped me by bringing more of Tammy out. Mary and I even had a talk that made me realize how I felt about Amy.

It was a Saturday morning, and my classes at the university started next Wednesday. And I was off on my usual Saturday morning walk. I headed for my favorite park, and it's many trails. And for some reason, I decided to take the trail that went past the lake. I haven't walked this trail since that day, four years ago, when Amy moved away. What drew me to it today? I don't know.

Giving Thanks

So many things have changed over the last two years and a bit. The biggest change, to be honest, has been me, inside and out.

At that time, I was just about to graduate from high school. I did all right, I guess, mostly As and Bs. I got along with others for the most part, but I never really got close to anyone because I had a deep, dark secret I didn't want to tell anyone: I wished that I had been born female.

Phallic morning

I stare at the phallus and its package between my legs. It’s tiny and weird. It doesn’t belong between a girl’s legs, yet it’s there. I poke and prod at it. Like it was about to explode.

I take a knife and gently stab the phallus’s package just enough to cause some pain. I stop before the knife breaks the skin. I hate pain as much as I hate my disgusting testosterone balls. I wish I didn’t feel pain. I wish I could just be numb. I also wish I had a scalpel. I could give myself an orchidectomy.

You Can Call Me Queen Bee Chapter 1: White Teeth Teens (starter)

I have a love/hate relationship with my yearbook.
On page forty eight of the Sentinel High School yearbook, in big bold letters, beneath my senior picture, it says: Monica Preston: Most likely to Succeed.

Gun Princess Royale - Book 3 - Ch6. (Part1)

Chapter 6.

– I –

Was I at risk of losing everything?

Had I gained nothing after winning my fight against the Gun Queen?

Just what had I achieved? What had I earned for myself?

As my questioning thoughts slowly drifted through my mind, the empty, hollow feeling in my chest returned, making it hard to breathe as though my lungs were being distended by the vacuum within me.

I swallowed hard a few times, and tried to regain control of my breathing.

Topiary Genetics: Part 13

The Big Day

Saturday morning everyone was buzzing with excitement as they returned from their morning run. On Saturday the run was not required but most of the girls continued with their normal daily routine anyway. To say that everyone was highly motivated to keep their bodies healthy would have been an understatement. Having grown older and much too heavy the first time around Kelli had no desire to repeat the experience. With all of the high calorie foods that would be easily available today she wanted to be able to sample them without feeling guilty.

Sentenced to Life

This is a tale of revenge and justice. There is no sex or violence except by reference..

Sentenced to Life

Special Agent in Charge Rhonda Peters tried to hide her distaste as she looked at the agent in front of her. She was sure he felt the same though he didn't show it. It was a long time from when they had been fellow rookies at the academy.

Other people wear dresses too!

Other people wear dresses too !!!!!

There’s some surprises in life that you don’t expect. And other surprises that you really don’t want. I thought I was alone. No – I knew I was alone, I knew that there was nobody else exactly like me. Nobody who thought like I did or did what I did. Nobody. How could there be?

Here’s a nicer story. Less harsh, less uncomfortable than ‘Hate, Hell, Hope’. That had some good ideas but quite reasonably vote-wise readers don’t like nasty pieces (or, it seems, multi-parts).

Chapter 5

She’s really gone.

Amy was really moving away!

The next two weeks went much faster then I, and I think even Amy, wanted them to. Amy and I walked to and from school together every day. We all graduated from junior high school on that last Friday. And there was a big party planned for Saturday to celebrate all of our friends making it to high school. Plus, it was going to be a surprise going away party for Amy and her family.

New Shoes, New Life, New Horizons and a New World?

I punched the speed dial on my Mobile.
It was a Friday afternoon in early March and I needed some entertainment.

“Hello Jen. What’s up? Your Boss still trying to feel you up then?”

“Hi Kylie. No. He’s not. I’ve threatened to tell his wife if he tries it again.”

They both laughed.

“As it’s the last Friday of the month and I’m assuming that you’ve been paid so how about some fun tonight?”

“I don’t know Jen,” she said with a big Sigh.

“Come on K. It’s been nearly nine months now.”

When You "Lose" Someone

When You “Lose” Someone
By: Jayde

How should you respond when you “lose” someone in your family? Should you stop talking to them and just don’t acknowledge their existence, well that’s what I did now I just feel like an utter dickhead.

To be a girl

“BOOM!” Goes the snub nose revolver I test fired making my ears ring. The smell of gunpowder permutated from the gun. I never shot a revolver before, but this is the first and last day I fire one. My body was jittering as I pull back the hammer of the revolver.

I walk into my garage. I was dark and warm. A nice place to end it all. I sit down in a chair and put the revolver in my mouth. I slide my thumb in the trigger guard. I close my eyes and slowly squeeze the trigger.

It's Love

December 2017 Christmas Dreams Story Contest Entry

Noel’s “big girl bed” was my old unfinished futon bed from New York. Splashes of food, drinks, and who-knew-what that had soaked into the bare wood at its foot, ensuring the need for an oversized throw to cover it.

“Read Daddy!” she excitedly urged without whining or offering anything but love for our time together.

Secondhand Life - Part 51

I tried to take my 'grounding' with grace. I tried to think of myself not as a prisoner of my hotel – which seemed to be crawling with security people... I wasn't sure whether they were from our corporate parent, the local authorities or the hotel's management, none of whom I presumed, would want a violent tragedy associated with their brands. I tried to pretend we were 'ultra-VIPs', so important that the world came to us and we merely 'held court'. That was how I tried to frame this, to keep myself from going stir crazy. It wasn't terribly effective.

Thanksgiving En Femme, Part III: Thursday

First things first: Lacey owed Maddie an apology. When she arose on the chilly morning of Thanksgiving, she immediately sought out her cousin. Not finding her downstairs, she instead opened her bedroom door. Maddie was doing squats.

“So this is the secret behind the cutest butt in Pennsylvania?” Lacey quipped. Maddie chuckled, and the girls hugged.

“Sorry I made you clean up last night,” Lacey said. “Lily’s right - I really am turning into a bitch.”

“That’s the cheerleader in you,” Maddie joked. “Now let’s go watch the parade!”

Author’s Note:
 
Hi All,

I know this is entered into the Christmas Contest, but it is not specially written for it. It is penned as a part of the ongoing saga of Day’s circle and life. This chapter, unfortunately has some dark elements in it. I know that not everyone likes that type of content, but it is an important part of the overall evolving story.

I just wanted to warn everyone that there is discussion of suicide. I played with ways of trying to signal the content for people to skip over, if so desired. But it seemed to mess with the story, too much.

I hope that fans of the storyline can bring themselves to go ahead and read the chapter—it will make the happier chapters that are coming (I promise!) that much sweeter.

HUGS!

Chapter 4

Amy meet Tammy.

Amy had talked me into letting her meet Tammy, and we’d talked to my mother about it. My mother had left us in the kitchen for a minute and had just walked back in, and she said, “Kids. I don’t want you to be mad at me, but we need to talk. And I invited Amy’s mother to join us.”

“A talk?”, I asked.

“Yes.”

“About what?”

It was before breakfast the second day when I was summoned for the mandatory check-up. The bright hues of the office were an affront to my senses, with flowers and paintings that probably made it friendlier. That didn’t stop me from flirting with sleep again as I slumped in the chair.

A blond woman with her hair in a bun stepped into the waiting room and chirped. “Elijah?”

An Angel Among Us #5

Lucinda Rebecca Adams was out riding her old gelding Comanche King, she had needed to do a tour of the back of the ranch for some time now. The ranch was pretty big, just over 105,000 acres total, located in northern Texas not too far from the Texas - Oklahoma state line.

The ranch was home to over nine thousand longhorn cattle, most of them roaming where they willed across the ranch's broad expanse. There were over a dozen small to medium sized creeks on the ranch's land, so the cattle had plenty of places to go if they needed water.

Chapter 3

Never lie to a friend.

Like I'd said, I’d started walking every day, that I could, after the cast was off, trying to build up strength in my leg before school started. At first, it was short walks, but they became longer and longer. I worked up to the point that I'd walk to the local park and walk the trails. It's a big park and has a number of hiking trails. And on rainy days, when I was at home, I was dressing as a girl.

Then one day as I was leaving home to go for my walk, Amy saw me, and yelled, “Hey Tommy. Wait up.”

I stopped, looked at her, she ran over to me, and asked, “Where you goin'?”

“For a walk.”, I replied. “I’m trying to build up the strength in my broken leg.”

“Oh. Can I go with you?”

Penny's World pt 13

“Daleks. A big Dalek. We got to hide. It’ll kill us.”
Em was really frightened. But then when I was seven I hid behind the sofa when the Daleks came on a 19 inch tv screen during Dr Who. And I liked the Daleks. I turned and dropped down wrapping her in my arms in a big hug.

Everybody Struggles

Everybody struggles with life, even at the simplest times. My life just got flipped on its head, I had the choice to flip it or not, so I didn’t lose a family member or something like that… Well, I wish everyone in my family saw it like me.

Z.3 - 'Hope'

'Hopeluiah’ – there can be hope

In this third segment, I was aiming at something better than the spreading of hate and nastiness. Maybe I am naïve but I do believe that people can be kind and generous. Well, some people, if not actually many,

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if some good came like Hope out of Pandora’s box. If out of the spew of unkindness that is so often and so willingly sent our way – that now and again there was unexpected decency and support - even niceness.

The Job 4

CHAPTER 4
He was a big man, and I thought I recognised him from somewhere, but my mind wasn’t working as he slid sideways in the car, pushing the door open and then reaching round it to take another handful of my hair.

I found myself almost spinning on the spot as he dragged me backwards through the now open car door. Something poked the back of my neck, and he was breathing hard, but his voice was under full control.

“Get your legs in and shut the fucking door. Do it now or I cut you”

The hospital and who’s Tammy?

I could hear strange noises, but couldn't make out what they were. And the last thing that I could remember was being on the way home with my mom, aunt, and cousin, and talking about our day at the museum, and some of the things that we’d seen.

I tried to open my eyes, but they wouldn't cooperate. Finally, I was able to get my eyes open, and the bright light hurt them. Everything was blurry. The first thing to come into focus was the ceiling. I don’t have white ceiling tiles in my room! What the heck. This isn’t my room. Where am I?

This is the story of Tommy, who, when we first meet him, is a very curious twelve-year-old. He has to know about everything, how it works, why does it feel like this, what happens if I do this, and so on. One day he asks his mother, what’s it like to dress in pretty things? And, as happens, once he starts dressing in pretty things there is no going back. But what’s behind this? Is he a cross-dresser, or is there something more behind it. Why does he want to do it more? Why does the girl next door like it when he dresses in pretty clothes? Why does he feel he is the girl that he’s dressed as? Why do all of his friends and family accept this part of him? Will a trip to New Mexico answer some of these questions, or will he have more questions than answers when he returns home? Will there be another girl, another spirit? Will he or she find himself or herself? Will he like what he finds?

“How you been, cuz?”

“Good, good! You?”

“I’m living the dream, and oh my God.” Rhonda stopped and looked over her cousin. “You look absolutely incredible!”

“Stop.” Lacey was modest but secretly relished Rhonda’s compliment.

Marcus sighed. There was no way he was going to manage to make his rent this month.

Women had it so easy. They just had to flutter their eyelashes and some asshole with more money than sense would throw cash at them.

He had come to a decision. He opened a dating site and created a new profile. “Marcia.”
