Anneewakee: One Boy's Journey

by Steve Salem Evans

BullShit: This is not a love Story

Cedric loves me, I know he does. He loves me. So believes Chloe, so much so that this mantra becomes a way of surviving. A way of denying Cedric’s sometimes cruel behavior. Because when he takes her in his arms, she is close to understanding love, is sure she will never again feel abandoned. Never mind the insults and screams, never mind a few small bruises or unsettling sexual requests. Eventually Cedric’s sexual abuse becomes more tolerable than his verbal scorn and emotional instability. Chloe forgets how to use the word “no”, learning quickly that “yes” will grant her respite, and even sometimes the love for which she yearns.Like the bull in a bullfight, Chloe is blinded by Cedric’s manipulative game. Like the doomed animal, Chloe lowers her head and surrenders. Following...

Yuri: Greek. Biker. Billionaire.

by Marian Tee

His name was Yuri Athanas.
They called him the golden boy of the Afxisi, a college org during the day and an underground racing club at night.
Like his brothers, Yuri was rich, powerful, gorgeous, and devastatingly sexy.
Unlike his brothers, Yuri did not leave a trail of broken hearts behind him.
Yuri was the angel amidst all the other Greek devils, they said.
I liked hearing that about him. It gave me hope that when we do meet again, he would remember his promise, and he would keep it.
He would take one look at me and he wouldn’t mind that I wasn’t…okay.
He wouldn’t mind I wasn’t…normal.
If he was everything I prayed he would be, he’d take one look at me and love me, like he had promised....
