34: “This has been wild”

Iggy caught up with Jemima on the balcony outside. Dick was out there as well, smoking in his scandalously tight police officer uniform. He’d bought it at some sort of adult shop, which seemed evident by the fact that the pants were tearaways. They were made for very easy access. There was another person with […]

31: “What a dud”

Somehow, Jemima had managed not to realize that she would still be seeing Noel every day at work after they broke up, even though she had broken things off outside the men’s room while at work. It was unfortunate. She imagined it would be painful to continue seeing the other person every single weekday after […]

Jemima had come to the realization, very, very begrudgingly, that she and Noel were not as such working out.

7: “This is why we march!”

Jemima and Noel were dating for real and this time Jemima knew it was actually happening. It was lovely. They ate lunch together, sometimes alone and other times with her friends. They went on dates that she actually knew were dates. There weren’t any random strangers tagging along and she had yet to trip over […]

99: “Dave is gorgeous”

Jacklyn came over unexpectedly one night while Jemima was at home painting her toenails. She had chosen a sherbet orange colour that she wasn’t actually sure she liked very much, but she was trying to get in the summer mood. It was April, it was slightly less dreary than it had been for months, and […]
