Happy Place

I was asleep, and in my happy place. I’m not sure where that is, but it is a place where I finally relax. It is a place where everything is ok. Where there are no problems. I was there, and I was happy; until suddenly I was pounced on. I was literally pounced on byContinue reading “Happy Place”

Beating Her

I was working at my desk in the morning.When I heard some banging and pounding,from below me. The neighbors were fighting again.But, this was different.This was screaming.
