Hell is where the heart is

Talking about rape, abortion, adoptions - also the last 20 years of my life. Don't read it if you don't want to read about yucky stuff. Go anywhere else on my blog, there's plenty.

The New Girl

"Do you know who I am??" Anna expectantly asked a man in an impeccable suit.  The man looked at her with mild distaste, thinking her ego was a bit much.  Anna glanced at unfamiliar cubes and faces.  The man shook his head as he shook her hands from his arm.  "No, but get to work." he...
