Nothing to Regret

Trip waits to learn his fate – he’s alone. No skipper; no dig tree.

He could have done anything that night – Natalie loved pole dancing amateur nights. Aqua aerobics. She was a cyclist, and was statuesque in Lycra. A romantic walk on Fisherman’s Wharf…

But he’d gone to Fusion, never suspecting a lovely Vulcan trap whose name he didn’t even know. If he could have seen the future; how that ill-fated Date Night would get him in trouble with authority, would he have decided to do something else, far away from the Vulcan Consulate?

He smiles. Nope, nothing to regret.

Will Trip change his mind about having regrets?

What happened on that ill-fated Date Night?

Who is Natalie?

Will he ever learn the name of the lovely Vulcan trap?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. Yup. Pretty much. He figured out pretty fast that she was worth some trouble. Although, if he knew then that there was so much trouble ahead….maybe he would have thought about it a bit more…..


Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
