Fiction Samples

A Romance (First-Person Narrative)



This was it. The moment I’d long for ever since laying eyes on her. When I saw her bite that lip of hers, I knew I was the only one who should be doing it for her. She was mine from that moment on, even if she didn’t know it yet.
Those blue eyes of hers were so innocent and curious at the same time that I needed to be the one to show her what laid on the other side of innocence.
“Luke?” she asked. “Are you okay?”
Damn, I loved the way she said my name. It got to me each time. No one else made my blood run like her or filled me with a need so great I thought I’d go insane.
Even her smell was addictive, lilacs and strawberries. She was so close it was all I could do to keep from pouncing on her like a madman. No, Cassie deserved slow and intimate first. The dark part of me could come out later. Right then, I just wanted to kiss her the way she deserved to be kissed. By a real man who didn’t toss her away like a balled up tissue. Cassie deserved the world, and I was the man who could give it to her.
“What’s wrong, Luke?” she asked.
Before I knew it, I pulled her to me and crashed my mouth against hers.
She moaned in shock, but it didn’t take long for her to relax into me.
Cassie tasted better than I could ever imagine.


Action & Adventure/Thriller (Third-Person Narrative)



The alleyway was shrouded in darkness, but Jim ran harder than ever, not caring if he bumped into anything along the way. Most alleys in this block had an entrance to the next street over. Of course he had to choose the one that was a dead end.
“Damn it!” he muttered under his breath. He didn’t have to look behind him to know the stranger was still following him.
Jim’s eyes adjusted to the darkness and found a spot to hide in. Maybe if he waited he could get the upper hand on whoever this asshole was. It had been years since he wrestled in college, but he was pretty sure he could pull out some moves if it came down to life or death.
He stilled his body and worked on stabling his breaths so he could stay quiet and hidden. His grip on the convenience store bag tightened. Maybe the guy was trying to rob him.
All Jim had in his wallet was five bucks and some change. The bag held a loaf of bread, peanut butter, strawberry jam, and bananas for Sue. It was inconvenient for her to have cravings at three in the morning, but he’d do anything for his pregnant wife. Even go on crazy runs for odd food combinations.
It didn’t take long for the man to catch up. Although he stood at the end of the alley in the light, it kept his face in the shadows. He was twice the size of Jim but shorter.
If Jim angled it just right, he could probably get away with minimal damaged. Hopefully. The last thing he needed was to scare the hell out of his wife and endanger her and their unborn son.
The man looked around before entering the alleyway and allowing the shadows to swallow him into darkness.
Jim said a small prayer that this wouldn’t be the last night of his life.
