Phoenix: The Time Keeper
I reached into the glove compartment and found a pack of cigarettes and a lighter. I wasn’t a smoker, but I thought “What the hell.” I lit up a stick and pushed it between my lips taking a long drag. I coughed as my virgin lungs rejected the smoke.Though I knew Garnet was gone, my mind kept reeling over the night before. Her silky violet sheets and our bodies pressed between them. The heat between us made my mouth water. I could remember her breath against my sweaty chest, all warm and peaceful as she slept.
Sorry it's been a few weeks since I've done an update. I just wasn't feeling it. I've just been trying to relax a lot this summer. I guess that last semester burnt me out more than I thought. I'm finally starting to get back into the swing of things. I got a few books I need to read this summer to get ahead on my fall literature reading. So far, I've completed 0 reads, but almost completed 1...that being the Scarlet Letter. I wish we were reading more Noir. I feel I could use more exposure to help me continue with this story. Hope you like the update!
