    Back to Reality

    I was away
    To see my relatives.
    How hard it is
    To a set of parents
    Who constantly bicker;
    One constantly criticizes
    As the other is always yelling.
    At least there's an older
    Brother who's always there
    To bring peace as he
    Brings light as far as his
    Sweet son calls, sending
    Humor and love.
    Now I'm back
    To my writing,
    And my fellow writers.

    Thank you all.

    Moki's Story: Chpt. 4

    Carrie sat in bed, breastfeeding little Camille. When she saw that Nicholas was standing by her, she smiled.

    ‘It’s okay,’ She said. ‘You can sit beside us.’

    ‘Aren’t you still sore?’

    ‘A little. I’d like for us three to spend some time together. You spent most of your time working.’

    ‘I know. But once my name is called on the intercom, that means they need me.’

    Carrie nodded. ‘I understand. That’s just how it works.’ She looked down at Camille. ‘Dad and Mommy knows how things work.’

    Camille cooed as she looked at her new parents. Nicholas gently laughed at his daughter’s expression. ‘She definitely looks more like you.’

    ‘Oh, it’s too soon to say who she takes after.’

    ‘Nonsense! She’s beautiful like you!’

    ‘May we be the judge of that?’ Olav asked with a grin on his face, holding Rachel’s hand.

    Carrie let out a laugh as Nicholas’ smile widened. Then they saw Moki enter the room and they watched him bow to them.

    ‘Oh, please,’ Nicholas said. ‘We’re not of royalty. Stand up…Moki?’

    Moki nodded. ‘Yes. Olav told me he’s friends with you both.’

    Nicholas and Carrie nodded at one another before they turned back to Olav. ‘Yes, he is. He’s saved us many times over.’

    ‘I can believe that.’

    Nicholas pointed out his hand to an empty seat. ‘Please, sit down.’

    Moki nodded. ‘Thank you.’

    Rachel smiled as Camille cooed at her aunt. ‘Oh, she’s beautiful!’

    ‘Yes,’ Olav said, smiling at the young child.

    ‘It’s okay,’ Carrie said. ‘You guys can hold her.’

    ‘You don’t mind?’ Rachel asked.

    ‘No, you’re my sister, and I also trust your honey.’

    Olav smiled as Rachel gently took the newborn out of Carrie’s arms.

    Nicholas smiled as the couple looked longingly at the baby.

    Nicholas turned to Moki. ‘Would you mind stepping out in the hallway with me?’

    ‘No.’

    Carrie frowned. ‘Where are you guys going?’

    Nicholas leaned to kiss his wife. ‘We’ll just be out in the hall. I want to talk to him about that time the three of us met.’

    Carrie then nodded.

    Both Nicholas and Moki stepped out of the room. ‘I’m terribly sorry about our last meeting. I know I wasn’t honest.’

    Nicholas waved both his hands. ‘That’s not what I actually wanted to discuss. I told Carrie that…because she doesn’t need to worry about anything right now.’

    Moki frowned. ‘I don’t understand.’

    ‘A woman named Simone has been assaulted. She’s Carrie’s grandmother, but you wouldn’t guess that. She’s your kind.’

    Moki nodded. ‘I know what you mean.’

    Nicholas was silent for a moment before he said, ‘She was attacked last night, but she is better. But it’s who that assaulted her that I'm worried about.’ Nicholas looked around before he said, ‘It was Kang.’

    Olav and Moki turned to each other, looking stunned.

    Carrie smiled as Rachel. ‘She’s beautiful.’

    ‘You said that already.’

    ‘What? I can’t compliment my niece?’

    Carrie laughed as Camille quietly cooed. ‘Of course you can.’ She hesitated as her smile faded. ‘I told Dad he can see her.”

    Rachel shrugged. ‘Okay.’

    ‘You’re not mad?’

    ‘No. I knew you were going to at one point or another.’

    Carrie then smiled as Simone walked in.

    The Castle

    The castle in Romania
    was beautiful.
    What was once a home to a
    Historical figure was
    Now a large museum.
    The walls were covered in
    Antique swords and flags.

    December

    I stared at her
    As she looked back at me.
    She smiled as her eyes sparkled. 'What?'
    'Something about this month has brought something in you. You want to talk about it?'
    'Oh, two events: my birthday and Christmas.'
    I sat back and smiled, captivated by her beauty.

    Exclusion

    Learned the hard way
    That no one will keep me
    Longer than needed
    At any kind of position.

    To many, I'm just a pawn
    To be used which is why
    I've long since given up
    On true love

    I've lived in a fantasy world
    Since I was a child
    Because that's how I've always
    Felt so safe.

    Maybe that's how it will
    Always be.

    Cold emotions

    Frozen

    Freezing with passing time,
    While the day changes
    Into darkness.
    Joy gradually changes into sadness.
    How I pray
    For things to get better.

    Memories

    In the woodsy area where I grew,
    I helped my mom raise my
    niece and nephew.

    Now she's too much like her mother,
    And he's like hid father;
    At least he's more loveable
    Just as she once was.

    In the winter, where the snow
    Piled to literally five feet high,
    They enjoyed the Christmas season;
    And still do to this day.

    Chaotic World

    A bitter racist mother,
    Who rants about those
    outside her race
    Only to be put in her place.
    A group of people
    Witness a child sobbing
    In a store
    Because a parent
    Won't stop belittling
    This poor child.
    So many street people,
    Beg for food,
    Because they can't afford
    The cost of rent.
    Chaotic, cruel, and mad.
    How else can we describe
    This bitter world?

    Spring

    Leaves grow back on trees
    Which were wilted and bent.
    More and more flowers bloom
    As the sun soon warms
    Up the season,
    The days become colorful
    And lightens up the mood.
