(Fall 2014) We waited a few more excruciating minutes for our server to return Jackson’s credit card, and I gathered up my purse, clutching it my shaking hands as he signed and left a tip on the receipt. This had been such a wonderful night.  Gorgeous restaurant, great food, and great company— Jackson was always great company. Well, that was usually the case, but then he had go and ruin it by asking me something he had no business asking me. He had a lot of damned nerve. I nearly choked on my own tongue in disbelief when he dropped the slip...

“If you stare at her any harder, she’s gonna call the cops on you. Contrary to popular belief, most women don’t like being stared at by strange men.” My friend — and former almost-victim— Tori lowered the dessert menu, peering at me over the top with a raised eyebrow.  It hid most of her face, but I could tell that behind it, she was laughing at me.  I could see that shit in her eyes, and I wasn’t amused. “I’m not staring, so you can wipe that little smirk off your face.” “Smirk?” she said innocently, snapping the leather-bound menu closed. “Me...

This time next week, the Jones family will be embarking on the hellish fun adventure of a 17-hour drive to Miami to board the ship for our second family cruise.  We're doing Eastern Caribbean this time, with stops in the Bahamas, St.Thomas, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. Did I mention that we haven't done anything yet?  Well, not exactly nothing.  I've made sure that the entire family has bathing suits, and we've thought about what we're going to eat, but that's about it. But, that's part of the fun of cruising, right?  You don't really have to think about it. Seriously though, it's...

Thinking about one more thing your dad told me.” “Okay… what?” I asked, cocking my head to the side. Avery pushed away from the door, and stepped towards me, prompting me to take a step back. “He said you were ticklish. Like… really, really ticklish… but only in one very particular spot.” He gave me a wicked grin as he came forward another step, and I lifted a finger in warning as I took one more — the last one I could— back. “Don’t you dare, Avery. I hated getting tickled,...

I watched Des and Drew deliver their toasts, but didn’t bother with the garter toss. Tori apparently had the same idea about the throwing of the bouquet, because while two of Drew’s cousins were fighting over it, I found her tucked into a quiet balcony, looking at the last rays of the sun reflected over the water. “You know… this view is better from my villa,” I said as I approached, stopping to stand  beside her at the railing. She looked up at me with a smile, even though it didn’t quite reach her eyes. “You’re not staying in one of those,”...

— Tori — Just breathe, Tori. Breathe, breathe, breathe. I took a deep breath as I stood back from the mirror to inspect the third reapplication of my makeup.  There was nothing I could do about the tear induced redness that rimmed my eyes, but at least the rest of my face was flawless. Briefly— very briefly— I considered sneaking out of the resort and catching a cab back the airport.  I could hop on a plane back to Dallas, or straight to wherever the hell Rafael was, and try to convince him that my drastic decision had just been a big...
