The Bees

It was the first week into her second trimester, and here she was, smoking a cigarette and filling her stomach with bees.


She opened her legs for him. There was something there, he thought, something red and purple. But it was tiny and fast, and it disappeared immediately...


I was twenty-one and had only ever been on one first date before (my boyfriend), so I can’t explain how wonderful it was to have a woman order me a bottle of wine.
