new Devo Diary

Hi everyone, here is the latest chapter of Devo Diary! I know you are all wondering what happened to Sean. Since there was a part 1, there must be a part 2, right? I did hear from him again but not for several months, and so much happened before that. So please be patient for part 2--like how it happened in real life, it will turn up when you least expect it.

But don't worry, he was not the only hot para I met around this time. Next up:
Devo Diary Chapter 54: Wheelchair Basketball

More basketball practice with The Mantis, more early days of Paradevo, plus the theatrical release of the movie Murderball.

And as always, the Table of Contents

New Release! My Perfect Fiance

For those of you who loved reading Noah and Bailey's story in My Perfect Ex-Boyfriend, but were frustrated because you didn't get to see enough of them being a couple... well, I listened to your feedback.  And I wrote a sequel that has a ton more of Noah and Bailey, even chapters from Noah's point of view.  It's one of my favorite things I've written:




Get it on Amazon, available NOW!  Here's the blurb:

My fiancé is the greatest guy ever.

Noah is sweet, he’s ridiculously sexy, he’s teaching my headstrong first grader how to read, and even his snoring is at an acceptable level of loudness. I can’t wait to marry this man. There’s only one thing that can stop us from living happily ever after:

My ex-husband, Theo.

Theo was a terrible husband and worse father. But now he’s back in my life, and no matter what I say, he can’t accept the fact that I’m marrying another man. Theo is desperate to get his family back.

And he’s not going down without a fight.


Get it on Amazon, available NOW!

Update to Love is Blind!

Here is this week's update to Love is Blind.  As usual, I would love any feedback because it is a work in progress.  But FYI, there are some deleted and reorganized scenes, so that could explain some discrepancies:

Chapter 4

And I finally made a Table of Contents!

Also, I have a surprise for you guys that I'll post later today!  Some of you might have figured out what it is, but for those who haven't, will post again soon!

In/Exhale Continues


I'll keep this short and sweet today!

Previously on In/Exhale: David goes to his job interview with the Deafie he met at the Jonesville Deaf Club meeting, and it doesn't go the way he'd expected. Kai has some time with Renee in which they seem to be getting closer, only for the bubble to burst, breaking her heart. David discovers keeping Kai safe is a lot harder than he anticipated.

This Week on In/Exhale: David catches up with Kai, who's struggling with everything that's going on in his life. Kai apologizes to Renee, but lashes out at Jon as the day concludes.

Coming Up on In/Exhale: Kai and Renee finally get to celebrate Valentine's Day together. Although Kai's day gets off to a rough start, he's determined to make the day as special for Renee as possible. The two grow closer, but a late-night phone call threatens to derail everything. . . .

February 12, 2001 - Part III



Unfortunately, the past few weeks have been pretty rough for me and I haven't been able to be as productive as I would have liked. As a result, as of this writing, February 13, 2001 isn't finished. However, I'd say it's about 90% complete, and since I was able to get my last dose of specialized medication on time this past Saturday, I'm hoping I'll be feeling well enough to post the first episode of the likely four-part season finale starting February 6, 2019. I'm very excited that the first couple episodes will actually happen around Valentine's Day, which I think is the first time that I've ever been able to coincide what's happening in In/Exhale with real-life holidays.

I'm slowly catching up with posting full days/chapters on my site, http://chiealeman.com/, so if you prefer to read them that way instead of in episode form, they post every Sunday. Once the season concludes, I will format the entire season into an ebook as I have in the past, and offer it for free download on my site. Additionally, I will take a break before Season 4 begins to re-start (and hopefully) finish my story Love UnSeen. If I'm lucky, I'll try to work on both that and S4 at the same time.

Thank you again for your support and feedback despite my long absence from the site. It really means a lot!

-CA

PS - As always, you can catch up with In/Exhale at any time via the Table of Contents - you can even find summaries of major story arcs at the bottom of the page.

New Chapter "Will Love Prevail"

Hi friends,
happy Monday! I was just watching the Super Blood Wolf Moon through binoculars on my balcony, it looked very awesome.🌘
Well, I was a little worried about last week's chapter and I hope I didn't shock you too much with the turn of events and somewhat explicit scene.🖤
In my original story Chiara wasn't going to be with Mark yet for a while and remember I rewrote the story to give you some close moments between the two so you wouldn't have to wait too long. 💑 Yes, I took Chiara away again and I'm coming around to some of the original story plot again. I hope you are still going to stick with the story and I hope you're still going to enjoy the following chapters.
Comments are always welcome and I thank you so much for reading.
Here is Chapter 13 of "Will Love Prevail".
Hugs, Dani🌜

Chapter 1 - Forever First Love

Forever First Love


Chapter 1




Chloe





I remember the first time that I met Matthew Hopkins so clearly. My parents had decided to have a BBQ in the garden, and Ben’s mum had recently started working with my mum at the bank. The Hopkins were new to the area so mum thought it would be nice to invite them. Mr and Mrs Hopkins arrived with 3 children behind them, twins Sarah and Emma and their younger brother Matthew. My sister Nicola was playing in the Wendy house at the bottom of the garden so the twins quickly vanished into there. I was practising my kick ups in the middle of the lawn and Matt confidently approached me and asked, “fancy a game of heads and volleys?”




For the rest of the night I played football with Matt. We practiced penalties, kick ups and had a game of cuppy. followed by playing Mario Kart on the Nintendo for what felt like hours. When it was finally time for the Hopkins to leave, I was gutted. I had found a new friend and was hoping that it wouldn’t be the last time that I saw him however, our mums promised we would do something the following weekend which both myself and Matt were very happy about.

New Chapter "Will Love Prevail"

Hi friends,
another week gone by and I have been so busy starting the new year and life stuff....
But here is Chapter 12 of "Will Love Prevail".
It's not as long as usual but I hope you are okay with that. I have been working a lot last week and just trying to at least get something posted for you. More next week.
Thanks for reading and commenting, very much appreciated,
Hugs, Dani

Chapter 2 - Forever First Love

Chapter 2

 

Chloe


 

I can’t believe how quick the last 3 years had gone. One more exam and I was a fully-fledged nurse and Matt would have his degree in business and finance. We could then finally begin our lives together for real.

 

“Good luck babes, you go and knock them dead,” Matt stated as he placed a firm kiss on my lips. “I can’t wait until you are qualified and you can be my very own dirty nurse.”

“One more exam and this nurse will show you how good her bedside manner is,” I replied whilst giving his bum a firm squeeze.

 

Update to Love is Blind

Hi, everyone!  Thanks so much for the feedback on my new story!  As I said, writing about a blind character is new to me, and especially writing from that guy's perspective.  So I appreciate your thoughts and telling me if I'm on target!

Chapter 2

And for those of you who haven't read it yet, here is Chapter 1.

Chapter 3 - Forever First Love


Chapter 3

 

Chloe

When Mr and Mrs Hopkins returned it was my turn. I slowly walked down the hall and froze outside the ICU door. Carly grabbed hold of my hand and gave it a little squeeze. Quietly and slowly I pushed the heavy grey door open, and before me lay Matt, hooked up to that many machines it was hard to make him out. I pulled up beside him and carefully picked up his hand and brought it towards my lips. “Don’t you worry about this. I need you to rest now because when you wake up we have a hell of a fight on our hands,” I sobbed whilst kissing his hand. “It’s going to be hard work, but I’m with you every step of the way. We’ll beat this, just you wait and see.” After a couple more minutes the doctor told us we needed to leave because Matt needed rest.

Update to He's Not Mr.Perfect

Hey!

First of all, sorry about missing last week. I got stranded at the beach, no internet to speak of, so I couldn't update, sorry about that. Now I hope you like this (redemption? lol) chapter, because it wasn't going to be today's update at all, I wrote it this week as a bonus thanks to the spare time I had and I thought it was a pretty nice addition. Not as long as the last chapter, but I think it's nice enough to make up for it. Tell me what you think, I really appreciate it.
About the story Anita, I liked some of your suggestions of alternating between the stories and I think I might! Let's see how it goes.

Without further ado:

Chapter V - Cappuccinos & Croissants

Enjoy!

Oh, and I have finally put together a Table of Contents to make your life easier.

Chapter 4 - Forever First Love


Chapter 4

 


Matt



I didn’t sleep well that night, my mind was constantly going over whether I could make Chloe go through the torment of living her life with a useless cripple. I loved her more than I could imagine ever loving anyone else. If I decided to let her go, it would break my heart, but I knew I needed to make a decision sooner rather than later, and not for me, but for Chloe.


Around 10am two members of the nursing staff walked in and told me they were going to give me a bed wash and generally clean me up. So far other than my bowel management this was by far the most degrading aspect of my disability and one that I was in no rush for anyone else to witness.


The curtain had been half pulled around me to prevent anyone who walked into my room from seeing me immediately. I was laid naked on the bed whilst one of the nurses was emptying my catheter and the other one was cleaning around my penis.


Just at that minute I heard a rustling at the curtains and very quietly Chloe appeared around the side. “It’s only me,” she said quietly in a very hesitant voice.

“Great, good timing,” replied one of the nurses. “You can watch what we do so you can help him in the future.”

“Er… erm, ok,” stuttered Chloe.

Chapter 5 - Forever First Love


Chapter 5

2 years later

Chloe

I’d finally got into the swing of reality as I returned from my world trip. After I’d returned I couldn’t face returning to live in my own town, because the likelihood would be that I’d bump into Matt on a daily basis and I still wasn’t quite ready for that. The last thing I had heard about Matt was from my mum around 11 months ago when he had been discharged from rehab and had moved home with his mum and dad around the corner from my parents. My mum felt the need to fill me in with way too many details and at that point I told her I no longer wanted to hear about Matt until it was something serious to do with his health. So now I was living around 30 minutes away just outside Leeds city centre with my good friend Carly.

Chaper 6 - Forever First Love


Chapter 6

Matt
I rolled into my old bedroom at my parents’ house and sighed. The room reminded me of so many happy times as a kid and I couldn’t help but smile. On my wall there was a collage of photos throughout my school and college years and Chloe was on nearly every single one. I rolled closer and took a closer look. One photo that brought back strong memories was a photo of a group of us camping in Chloe’s back garden. Instantly I was thrown back to that night.

Three tents were pitched around the outside of the garden and in the middle we all sat on the cold, damp ground with a bottle in the middle ready to play spin the bottle. We’d played the game for a little while, but now the cider we had been discretely drinking was starting to reach our heads and we were all feeling over confident. “Ok, next two people it lands on need to have a full blown snog that lasts for a minute,” said Anthony, a lad from school, in a cocky voice.
“Ok, it’s my turn to spin the bottle,” demanded Carly. She spun the bottle and before I knew it, it had landed on me.
“Ok big lad, your turn to spin it to find out who you are going to snog,” stated Chloe’s cousin Darryl. I looked around and I knew instantly where I wanted it to land. I was known as one of the popular lads in my year and all the girls sat around were posing waiting for it to land on one of them. However, not one of those is where I wanted it to land. Laid on her belly next to me was Chloe who was resting her face in her hands. She was wearing a football T-shirt and shorts and had her hair scraped back into a pony. “Come on Matt,” Chloe moaned. “We haven’t got all day.”

In/Exhale Continues

Welcome back, everyone! This week is an emotional roller coaster for Kai, Renee, and David...

Previously On In/Exhale: David found Kai naked and confused at Nikki's new apartment. Concerned he may have tried to overdose the night before, he tells Dr. Miller about it, who drills Kai. Kai denies it; he's more concerned that he may have had sex with Nikki and cheated on Renee, though his memory of the previous night after he left Frankie's house is sketchy. Dr. Miller decides it would be best if Kai moved up his admission to Harbinger to Valentine's Day, and celebrated the holiday tomorrow instead. David has to go to a job interview, so he encourages Renee not to leave Kai unattended, though he won't say why.

This Week On In/Exhale: David goes to his job interview with the Deafie he met at the Jonesville Deaf Club meeting, and it doesn't go the way he'd expected. Kai has some time with Renee in which they seem to be getting closer, only for the bubble to burst, breaking her heart. David discovers keeping Kai safe is a lot harder than he anticipated.

Next Time On In/Exhale: David catches up with Kai, who's struggling with everything that's going on in his life. Kai apologizes to Renee, but lashes out at Jon.


February 12, 2001 - Part II



The final episode of Feb 12 will be the week after next, or January 23. I'm doing my best to finish up the last day of the season, but it's been tough. I *might* have to take an extra week off after next week to finish. I'll do my best NOT to, but heads up in advance.

Thanks for all your comments last week. It's good to be back on the blog. I wish I was able to be more productive so I could guarantee more consistent content in the weeks to come, but I am grateful for those of you who waited for me and Kai to return.

After the wedding I’d received one or two text messages off Matt but that was all. I’d hoped our friendship would rekindle into best friends again, but that didn’t seem to be happening anytime soon.

What It Was - Table Of Contents

Hi friends,

Hi,
welcome to "What It Was", another one of my stories here on the Blog.
I have enjoyed posting my stories here and am happy people have enjoyed reading them and commenting.

"This is the story of Shay and Jordan, two very different people who meet by coincidence. Jordan catches Shay's attention because he is in a wheelchair and she really wants to meet him and get to know him. Jordan lives in a very different world than Shay and seemingly there is no overlapping of their two very different lifestyles.
The wheelchair is the link though and Jordan invades Shay's thoughts and also her heart with full force. As they near each other it becomes obvious that Shay needs a lot more of Jordan and she does anything to get to know him.
They find each other again under difficult circumstances and from then on nothing will be easy. Jordan comes with a whole load of heavy baggage. Shay is confronted with how much she can endure with Jordan in her life. Love and hope is what Shay holds on to and Jordan realizes Shay may be his last straw but also a light in a life full of pain and suffering."

Chloe
Since the football game, Matt and I had become inseparable again and I was over the moon. We texted and spoke on the phone constantly and made sure we met at least once a week for tea. Earlier on in the week we had met up in my local pub for our tea and to play the quiz, when Matt let it slip that he’d been playing wheelchair rugby for the last six months. I pestered him to let me go watch him so tonight I was meeting him at the local sports centre to watch him play and then we were going out for food.

New chapter "Will Love Prevail"

I wanted to mention that for anyone who reads my books on Kindle Unlimited, I just put my box series about Dean and Callie (Santa's Girl) on KU for the first time.

New Story from Annabelle: Love is Blind

So due to majority rules, the new story I'm posting is about the Iraq War veteran who was blinded in service. This is my FIRST blindness story, so I'm a little nervous about it, but Devogirl told me it was devvy, so I've got my fingers crossed you like it. 

Love is Blind

Summer, 2011


Colin

Where is my goddamn toothbrush?

I don’t get it.  My toothbrush was right on the ledge of the sink when I knocked it off in my attempt to pick it up.  I didn’t karate kick it off the ledge—I just knocked it off with the back of my hand and heard a clattering noise as it landed.  Which means the toothbrush should presumably be on the floor, within a one-foot radius around the sink.

Except it isn’t.  I have gotten down on my hands and knees and felt every single inch of the floor in a two-foot radius around the sink, and that toothbrush is nowhere to be found.  It has disappeared into a toothbrush vortex, entering an Evil Parallel Toothbrush Universe in which, I don’t know, toothbrushes are used to clean people’s toes instead of their mouths.

But that’s my life these days. 

My fingers hit the porcelain of the bathtub and I contemplate feeling around inside the bathtub.  It couldn’t have gone in there, could it?

Shit.

Chapter 9 - Forever First Love


Chloe


 

It had been two days since the rugby match and Matt had been the model patient. I was surprised how patient he was, but then again I’m guessing that came from learning to live with his disability and having to rely on carers.

 

I called around after work on Wednesday, which was nearly 48 hours later and Matt was sat up in bed watching television. As soon as I walked into his bedroom he pulled the quilt up to his chest. I didn’t react and sat myself down in his chair. I instantly wondered if he minded, so I asked, “you don’t mind if I sit here do you?”

“No make yourself at home,” he replied.

“So how are you feeling now? I asked. “I must say you are looking rough,” I laughed whilst giving his beard a little rub. “In need of a trim as well I’d say.”

“Thanks for the compliment,” Matt replied in a sarcastic tone. “Truthfully though, I’m not 100% yet but I’m in a hell of a lot less pain. I’m going to venture out of bed later, but not without Gemma watching me.”

“Can I have a look?” I asked.

“Sure knock yourself out,” he said.

I stood up from the chair and pulled the quilt down a little bit and stopped once I realised Matt wasn’t wearing a top. I knew that pulling it further down would only torture him and that was the last thing I wanted to do. I hoped it wouldn’t take long for Matt to become comfortable with me again like he did in the past.
