The 27 Club

I always had a feeling that my amazing brother would one day be listed among the great artistic minds of our generation. I just never thought that Zachary Flowers would be listed among the gifted artists who left far too young.

I used to be the calm and perfect one, but I’ve lost direction ever since Zachary died right after his 27th birthday.

I felt like the time to face my destiny was edging closer, until I crossed paths with Nate, Zachary’s best friend.

Nate glued my broken pieces together, and in him I felt awakened.

It was now my responsibility to convince him that he was brought into my life for a purpose.

Come A Little Closer

Sarah and I met at the airport.

She seemed shy and gorgeous, and so I offered her my seat, seeing how she looked uncomfortable in her oversized heels.

My flight had been delayed, which made me assume that hers had too.

We started talking over drinks. She had just lost her job while I had just attended my ex-fiancée's wedding.

First it was one drink. Then three. Then five. Let’s just say things got a bit heated after that.

I woke up the following morning alone and penniless.

It turns out that Sarah wasn’t who she claimed she was.

But as fate would have it, "Sarah" and I so happen to have chosen the same tropical island to escape.
