The Former Student: Alana returned to her old high school seven years after graduating. She took the open English teachers position. When she walked through the doors on her first day of work, she could not believe it looked the same. There was one classroom she was particularly interested in, his room. She wanted to know if he was still working here. She walked up the flight of stairs and turned left. Two doors down, she peaked in the room on the left side of the hallway. There he was writing his name on the board in preparation for the first class. She smiled. He still looked the same with a bit of gray peppered throughout his hair. She knocked on the door. He turned and smiled that same innocent smile she seen every day of her senior year.
The Stolen Child: Louise ran all the way home with Jenny in her arms. By the time they got home, the rain fall had increased and they were soaking wet. Louise placed Jenny on the porch, sandwiched between her and the front door. Looking around, she made sure that the woman had not followed them home. She unlocked the door and ushered Jenny on the house. Securely locking the door behind her, she turned to Jenny.
My Death: I felt him slip one of his muscular arms around my waist. The other one wrapped around my shoulders, his hand covered my mouth. I could smell the soap he used to wash his hands. My heart and mind were racing. I did not know what was going on. I began to panic. I squeezed my eyes shut, trying to fight back the tears. I began to weep. He cinched his grip tighter..
Dancing the Night Away: I spotted her as I walked in the door; she was with a bunch of her friends. The girls were all out on the dance floor, with their purses in a pile in between them. They had their drinks in one hand, and their bodies all moved in a cohesive rhythm. She was wearing a knee length, cobalt blue dress with a pair of black pumps. Her copper red hair was wet with sweat, and her fair skin had a glistening sheen.

My Review of Two Romantic, Two Suspenseful:
Amazon verified purchase! I decided to purchase this book after signing up for the book feature. These stories are actually very neat. They are completely different from each other, with very different scenarios. In a way, they have a Twilight Zone kind of feel to them, which I really enjoyed. The stories hop right into the action, so you won’t find any unneeded fillers in the pages. I ended up reading it straight through, it’s intriguing enough to keep you interested. The author’s description is very, very, accurate of what you will find within the pages. If you’re looking for an interesting afternoon read, you’ll like Two Romantic, Two Suspenseful!
