Summer: A Sense and Sensibility Fanfiction, Part III

Marianne and I didn’t speak often that summer. She was always with J.W., off together in his parents’ basement. He graduated with a full scholarship, in spite of his S.A.T. scores. I spent the summer working in the ice cream shop downtown. It was only a block away from Eddie’s dad’s HVAC shop. In the shimmering heat of June afternoons, I would meet Eddie halfway … Continue reading Summer: A Sense and Sensibility Fanfiction, Part III

It was a good thing she was wearing her boots. … Continue reading Outside: A Doll’s House Fanfiction

Eight AM – A Matilda Fanfiction

The girl was pretty in a quiet way, but Mark didn’t think it was just her prettiness that drew his eyes. She was captivating in a way he couldn’t explain, distracting his attention from the eight o’clock lecture on psychopathology in a way none of the other female students did. He’d never seen her anywhere on campus before. Come to think of it, he’d never … Continue reading Eight AM – A Matilda Fanfiction
