Write Her Story

Pieces of Love
by Elaine Pascale

“I am being torn in two,” he said sadly.  “A part of me wants to move forward with you, wants to plan a wedding and a life, but the other part–” he stopped when he saw how much he was hurting her.
She convinced him to stay.
After the wedding, she gave up her modeling career for him, gave up the celebrities that haunted Victoria’s Secret Angels, gave up her body to carry his child.
“I am being torn in two,” he said sadly.  “A part of me relishes the idea of being a father, but the other part—“ he stopped when he saw how much he was hurting her.
She convinced him to stay.
After the baby, she tattooed his name and symbols of their life together on her arm.  She created a permanent, artistic monument to their love.  He was finding love elsewhere.
“I am being torn in two,” he said sadly.  “A part of me really does still love you, still loves our family, but the other part of me loves her,” he barely stopped in time.
“You are being torn in two,” she said without much emotion.  She didn’t stop when she saw how much the hacksaw hurt him.
She no longer had to convince him of anything.

What happens when a kept woman refuses to take her ridatemp and begins thinking for herself? In If Nothing Else, Eve, We’ve Enjoyed the Fruit; she begins talking to bunches of grapes and cantaloupe that convince her to commit murder. Through her visitations with fruit, the woman learns that a gender war can be reversed by traveling back in time and eradicating the Tree of Knowledge and its villainous apples. The fruit persuade her by telling her four other stories:

Boys Will be Boys: A spa is turned into a concentration camp: just don’t ride the elevators!

Ripped to Shreds: Pregnant Jody Burkhoff’s body is changing rapidly, but not as quickly as the lupine metamorphosis of her husband. First the neighborhood animals are mutilated, then the neighbors are viciously murdered. Which proves to be more dangerous, a monstrous creature or a hormonal woman?

O: Khaki Barlow enters a pageant in which only one woman survives. She must complete tasks that are both mentally and physically daunting, all while trying to learn the meaning of the words left by the eliminated: I am here. Does she face incredible fears? Does a one-legged duck swim in a circle?

The Prison of a Man: Told as an ethnographical project, Lara Thomas researches the deaths of shoppers at a mall embedded in a small town, and encounters the legendary Goat Man.

If Nothing Else (Prologue): Readers learn the final decision in the gender war.
