This is the first installment of a book I plan to write just for my blog. Each week will be a new installment of Apparition. A story of a ghostly girl who is stuck and is looking for help to find out who she is and how she can be free. In the process can a ghost find love from a man who is helping her. A man that is flesh and bones? I hope you will come back each week to find out what happens next.
************************************************************************************* Apparition
By Dahlia Rose
She walks like the whisper of the wind. Her feet never touch the ground, not is she seen by day. But still she watches as the children play in the park. Their joyful laughter peals out at they ride the carousel in Central Park. At night the massive lawns are empty. In the winter the benches are clod and lonely. But it is only at night when all is silent except the distant sirens or who will brave the park at nigh that she can be free.

As much freedom as an apparition can have. She cannot touch, connect eat, only feel and be there in that time. Such is the existence of Josephine to live this way day in and day out, year after solitary year. She cannot even remember her last name or the circumstances that brought her to where she is now. She has been stuck in limbo that long. Some see her, while running in the park or taking a stroll through the small piece of paradise in a big concrete city. They will catch a smell of her light perfume or see the wisps of her misty blue dress. If they try to follow she disappears quickly. Sometimes it is out of fear or just a game to pass the time. What else is there to do when you are in between worlds?

But then there are the ones, the ones that she can sense will help. Then she shows herself, beckoning them with a outstretched hand and a plea in her soft brown eyes. No one has ever stayed long enough to find out what she needs. What keeps her on this earthy plain? What stops a lonely apparition from moving on? They run or choose not to believe what has appeared in front of them. So she walks the hiking paths and lonely roads of Central Park. Waiting for the day someone will help her escape. Waiting for the day that this person will be brave enough to help her answer the questions, she has long forgotten.

Dahlia Rose Bio

Hello to those who don’t know me I’m Kelly Ann King with the Alias of “BajanDahlia” or “Dahlia Rose”
I was born on the little island of Barbados, I grew up with the sand between my toes and the smell of fruits and the sea in my nose. My mother always said I was too intelligent for my own good and my dad, well I was daddy’s little girl until I became a teenager, then I became a rebel. I fell in love with romance and erotica at an early age, reading my aunts Loveswepts and Mills & Boons novels. Stories of dark dashing men who saves their women or love that conquers all filled my head and I began doing something I found I loved. I began to write, my friends read my little stories and some were anxious to see more, some said my head was filled with filth, but on a small island where church was a Sunday thing and most functions was built around the church what else could they think. I knew different I knew that the thought of a kiss that melts your bones and a love that could surpass time was something to look forward to. I wanted that prince on a white horse. My dreams of being a writer were put of for awhile when I became a mother at the early age of sixteen, my daughter Deanna 14 now and my biggest supporter) was never counted as a mistake in my life, Her and I braved a new world by moving to New York city. I loved her from the moment she was conceived and four kids later, (G’kar 9, Kaine 5 and Lillinah 3 none of them would ever think they were not wanted. But alas the other half of the parent unit was not to be.
My best friend whom I tell everyone is my sister was also always in my world she is my life line and when things became low she was always there to pick me up and keep me going. I have known her since she was five and I was seven. She has been there for the birth if every one of my kids. In a relationship that spans over twenty years I could not imagine my life with out her. Together we can be the goofiest of people laughing at things that adults would call childish, but keeps us young heart. Together me and Cathy can be immortal children but when either of us needs the other we are there and instant always having each other backs. So as a single mom of four of the brightest stars in my universe I began to write again but this time because of a love that found me in the strangest of ways, the internet.
He encourage me to write again from letters I sent him and because he showed me the love that I looked for was not just a fantasy but could be real in his arms. Coerced by a friend I put my profile on a love website and met my dream man, He was in Iraq at the time and my soldier took my breath away, we went from exchanging emails to him calling me from overseas every night. By the time he came home we were a year into our relationship and never even met but he knew all about me and I about him. Our first meeting he came to New York to see me, I was so nervous I almost threw up in the cab but from there we have not been apart since. He is my “Bid daddy” and without him in my life as well as my kids, and my best friend my world would be a bleak place. I want to bring the love I found to my readers through my words and show that erotica and love go hand in had, that sexuality is so much better when you find your soulmate. In love nothing is taboo, just talk listen, live and love.
My first book which has just been accepted to be published is based on him and our lives, he showed me how to dream again and to love again. So I hope you who I count as friends on the internet or otherwise will visit my page often and chat with me through emails IM or what ever means. Till we speak know that love can be found in the strangest of places and no one should never give up on true romance. My Motto is to “Live life in Love and Love the life you Live” I hope everyone could find a piece of that in life.
