A moment in time... circa 1943

I sighed softly to myself as I hand washed the dishes in the sink, trying to keep my mind occupied. Anton was away at work and I always enjoyed my time alone to myself. Whenever Anton was around, I felt on edge. It was not until he would leave for the day that I felt more myself. Even then, I hadn’t truly felt like myself since before the wedding. At first things were alright in the marriage. I chose to look past certain things and prayed that I would eventually love Anton. But…

The Hike

Four months ago...

Most of the time I can keep things in perspective, keep things sorted in my head, but  the trip Monday with the businessmen from Seattle nearly drove me crazy. I discovered that some people can be idiots yet think they know everything, but some can actually be nice and might just want to hear what you have to say. Funny how that works, isn’t it?

I told everyone that all the businessmen were jerks, but that wasn’t the case. There was one named Kent who…

That phone call home was a lot rougher than I expected. Bad news is never easy to give or to get. Though they would never come out and say it, my parents were really upset over it. I could hear the concern in my daddy’s voice and the tears Mama tried to hide in hers. The…

A moment in time.. later in 1942.

Later that year...

I lay in bed, my heart pounding in my chest. My hand covered my eyes as I tried to take deep breaths, still in shock at the event that took place earlier during the day. A whisper escaped my lips as the realization began to set in.

 

“I got married today.”

 

The day had gone by in a blur. My mother and…

With Friends like this....

Four Months Ago...

Have you ever had a person who claimed to be your friend but their actions didn’t show it? Yeah, I’ve had quite a few of those, especially when I was younger. Okay, let me explain. Her name is Samantha and we were the same age growing up on the Res. She was beautiful, perfect face, perfect hair, perfect body. Our classes were small, so of course we knew each other. She was one of my best friends for a while, then that changed when I started seeing Sam. She…

A moment in time... circa 1942

Have you ever dreamed of a future for yourself, one where you made all your own decisions and were perfectly content, only to realize that it would never happen? I certainly have.

 

It had been a couple of months since I met the boy my father wanted me to marry. I admit, at first I did carry a bit of a torch for the boy. There was something about him that intrigued me. As time went on and we began to go on…

A moment in time… circa 1941

“Makenna, come in here. There is someone we would like you to meet.” I made my way down the hallway of the house, humming softly to myself. As I entered the dimly lit living room, I was taken aback by a young man sitting amongst my family. I ran a hand through my hair, trying to smooth down the soft waves that cascaded down my back. As I entered, the young man and my father rose from their seats, greeting me. There was a moment of silence, then my father spoke.



“Makenna, we would… Continue
