VB25 – Her Again

VB25 – Her Again by Xue Faith My mother thought she was too good for this world, so she left. As if that raspberry wasn’t enough, she thought it’d be “funny” as part of her exit to engage in a little human trafficking and auction ME off! After a couple of humiliating weeks of being […]

Black Swan

I have an adult body… and the mind of a child… No one whose physical appearance is as mature as mine, has actually experienced as little in this world as I have. Yes, I do have the “Vaneeesa Chip” somewhere in my cranium if I want to use it – it gives me an encyclopedic […]
