Excerpts from “Radiant Affection”

I began writing this story in 2012 as a replacement to and therefore repentance of writing the original version of, “The Textfile.” I still work on it from time to time. Also, The Twilight Saga was very popular at the time I began it and I did indeed draw some inspiration from there to write this, but probably only on the sub-conscious level. My main motive for writing this, of course, was to write a love story but my ulterior motive was to expose false religion. On this page are some excerpts from this story. Without further ado, here they are:

The first excerpt takes place on a Thursday afternoon in February of 2010, after being in love for almost four years, but not seeing each other, Logan Babies and Mila Gunther meet again: …It was a cold and dry Thursday afternoon on February 4, 2010. Logan had just clocked out of his work. He locked the building, then started up his truck and, as usual, drove to the library. Upon arrival, he retrieved his edc bag from behind the seat. This bag held his laptop and other personal gadgets. Logan then walked to the second floor and sat down. He connected his laptop through the library’s WiFi system and began to browse the Internet. He checked his email then looked at Myspace and Facebook for a while. When he saw there was no new activity; Logan pulled up the weather report. It indicated that the weather would be sunny and dry, but with near freezing temperatures. For the night it would be clear and dry but with a light freeze. After reading the weather report; he pulled up the secret web page. He read all of the stories that had been posted since April of 2006 and was focused on his computer screen. Logan wondered who would still be writing these since he was almost three years out of high school. He still assumed that this was a prank, so it shocked him that someone would still want to mess with him.

Mila drove to the library to upload a fantasy of her and Logan that she had just completed. Upon finishing with the computer, she walked upstairs to begin her schoolwork. Mila walked through the stairwell doors and entered the room.

Logan noticed that a new story had just been posted to the web page. He was about to read it when, suddenly, the stairwell door opened and in walked a beautiful girl in her uniform skirt. Immediately, he thought of Mila and his eyes were instantly fixated on her. After a few moments of staring, he realized it was indeed Mila. He stood up and watched in awestruck admiration, as she walked in. She noticed him and smiled sweetly. She took a second look at him and realized who he was. It was Logan, but with a more masculine look.

“It’s him!” Mila said with excitement. Immediately, she ran up to him, and said, “I know you! You’re Logan Baines.”

Nervously, but passionately he replied, “Oh Mila, I can’t believe you remember me!” He softly said as they tightly hugged each other.

She humbly replied to him, “Well, you sure are someone who is hard to forget.”

Awkwardly, they stared into each others eyes and simply smiled. Mila then said, “I had such strong feelings for you back when you went to school with me and I still do. Oh, if you only you knew.” Mila paused then continued, “I think you felt something for me, I always noticed how you would smile and blush.”
,
Logan’s whole body became flushed, but he caught himself and said, “Yes, it is true. I had feelings for you back then. I still have those feelings. They never left me.” He paused and then continued, “I would have sought you out back then, but I was afraid of the law and wanted to save you the humiliating scandal.”

Mila replied, “I am eighteen now, and that means I can be your girlfriend and we can do whatever we please.”

Logan swallowed hard and then said, “I would be honored to have you, but…” He paused, then continued, “It’s just I still see that same sweet and innocent girl from three years ago. I have a deep reverence for your beautiful body and soul. I don’t mean to sound like I am talking down to you and I definitely don’t want to repel you. Please understand!”

Mila replied “Oh Logan! Those are the sweetest words I have ever heard anyone say about me. And the fact that they came out of your mouth, fills my heart even more with ecstacy! If only you knew how much I want you.” She continued, “I just hope you are okay with this!”

Quickly she pecked him on the cheek.

Logan blushed and his whole body became warm once again. “Oh Mila, you are just as affectionate and sweet as I imagined. It’s perfectly okay that you kissed me. I would like to give you a kiss as well.”

“If you want to, you may,” Mila said as she smiled. Softly, Logan kissed her. Their lips mixed and became one set.

“This is so wonderful Mila!” Logan said.

The city policeman working a security detail in the library shouted, “Knock it off right now!”

Many people stared in shock.

“Sorry,” Logan said, sheepishly.

Then Mila continued, “Why don’t you come over to my house?”

“Sure, Mila, but what would your parents think?”

“My mom is probably drunk or full of pills and my dad left a year ago.”

“Well I guess,” Logan nervously said, then continued, “I don’t want you to make you do something you will regret.”

“Trust me, you won’t!”

“Well do you have a car or do you want me to drive you to your house?”

“My dad bought me a car; just before he left my mom. You can follow me home.”

“Very well Mila, I will follow you home.” He became filled with passion and nervousness.

They left the library, not realizing that several of Melody’s elite upper-class were conducting a meeting and that they saw and heard everything that went on between Logan and Mila…

The second excerpt takes place the following day with the corrupt catholic school president maliciously confronting Mila Gunther about her and Logan’s seemingly inappropriate public displays of affection: …She sat down alone, in the library, working on her current fantasy. She wrote with passion until the morning bell rang. Slowly, she headed to class, with Logan on her heart. It was her math class, so she knew she needed to try and pay attention.

Suddenly, the school president called Mila’s teacher over the intercom, “Please send Mila Gunther to my office.”

The teacher replied, “She’s on her way,” Then motioned for Mila to leave the classroom.

Mila walked down to the office, wondering what she could have possibly done to warrant her being called down.

She opened the door to the president’s office and he spoke with graveness, “Mila, I have a serious problem with you.” He paused and then said with a confrontational anger, “You want to tell me why you were carrying on in a lewd manner while in uniform?” Mila began to shake. The president continued, “You have tarnished this school’s reputation and we have it on video from the library security camera.”

Mila shook more as she replied, “All I did was kiss him. There are so many others who get away with doing much worse than me.”

The president then replied with even more anger, “It’s the fact that you had attention called yourself by also talking out loud and and kissing Logan Baines while in uniform, then having that policeman correct you. There were several civic leaders and local business owners there having a meeting. This disgusting incident is now the impression that everyone in the community will have of a student at our school. You’ve seriously misrepresented us.” The president continued “I am giving you two Saturday schools because of this. Consider yourself lucky, because I could have easily expelled you.” He paused then continued “However, I want you to break up with Logan Baines. If not, you will, indeed, be expelled.”

Mila began to cry as she said, “I cannot break up with him-we love each other deeply and we’ve been in love for almost four years.”

Koresh replied, “I don’t care, so save it for your counselor.”

Mila asked, “Why do you want me to leave him?”

Koresh replied, “Among other reasons; it is part of your punishment for carrying on like a whore and making our school look bad,” He paused, then angrily said “Now get back to class and don’t you dare step out of line!”

Mila sulked as she walked back into the classroom. She was by no means going to break up with Logan, whom she had been in love with for so long. However, she knew that if anyone found out that they were still together she would be expelled and unable to graduate. The remainder of the day went by very slowly. As soon as school let out, Mila called Logan and explained the situation to him.

Logan replied, “That damn Keith Koresh has gone too far this time. I thought after I graduated he would no longer have power over me.” He paused, then asked her “Well I hope you still want us to be together.”

Mila said, “Yes, of course, but we will have to keep it covert. I am not about to give up on you and me, after all we share.”…

Here is the third and, for now, final excerpt from this story. It is probably the most controversial, but I feel it teaches a good lesson and exposes the hypocrisy that is embroiled in false religion:

…As Logan was about to leave the store, he saw Kieth Koresh was placing beer and whiskey on the conveyor belt in the lane next to his. Quickly he grabbed his smartphone and took a picture of him purchasing the alcoholic beverages. Logan knew that this picture could be used against that hateful school president. He then sent the picture to Mila’s phone.

Suddenly, Kieth Koresh confronted him, “Logan Baines, what do you think you are doing?”

“I think I should ask you the same question.”

“I’m a grown adult and I can drink alcohol if I so choose. In fact, I need to drink after dealing with some of the students I have to deal with.”

“But what would your students think if they saw you purchasing alcohol, yet you suspend or expell them for doing the same? They would see a total hypocrite. They would lose the little bit of respect they have for you. I now have pictures of it as proof.”

“How dare you!”

“Well, let’s just say it’s payback for intefering with Mila and me.”

“You are messing with forces more powerful than you think, so I suggest you quit now.”

“And you are sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong not to mention you stalk your students.”

“I have a job to do and that job is make my school appear respectable to the community.”

Logan was now angered and said, “Okay mister catholic school president, I’m going to quote Jesus Christ, Someone Whom you claim to follow: ‘For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.’ That is in the Bible, Matthew Chapter 23 verse 27, and it perfectly describes what you and your school are truly like!”

The two female cashiers on duty covered their mouths and giggled.

Kieth Koresh said “Keep this subversive behavior up and you will be dreadfully sorry. I can be your worst nightmare.”

“I don’t think so; I graduated already.”

“But I have connections who can make your life a living hell.”

“Are you threatening me? Because I can go to the police.”

“They’ll just laugh at you. Now I suggest you stop this or it will get ugly for you.”

Kieth Koresh then left the store.

Logan was speechless.

He was about to leave, when the two cashiers approached him. They were twins named Amber and Alexis Stewart.

Amber said to him, “I think it is brave what you are doing.”

Alexis added in, “We were expelled by him last year for getting drunk at a party. It’s all because someone took our pictures taken while we were plastered.”

Logan replied, “He’s trying to make my girlfriend break up with me, simply because she kissed me in the public library and it was caught on camera. It breaks my heart because I love her with all that I am and I have been in love with her for a long time. I was a senior and she was an eighth grader when we first met, but now she is a senior and she is the only girl I ever wanted. I had known no other and she had known no other.”

“Ohh. That’s so sweet,” Amber said with a smile.

“I think you and her are meant to be, no matter what that idiot tries to do,” Alexis added in.

“Thanks. That’s very encouraging.”

“If something does happen to you, we can testify about his threat that we both saw,” Amber said.

“So yes, go ahead and post that picture. Show it to as many people as you can. We’ll back you up and say he threatened you anyway,” Alexis continued.

“Make it go viral,” Amber finally said.

“Will do. Now I have to go home and make dinner.” Logan said.

Amber said, “Have a nice evening.”

Alexis ended with, “Thank you for shopping with us.”

Logan walked to his truck and started it up. He drove back to his condominium, parked in the garage and began walking to his unit…

That’s all I have for now. I know this is very controversial, but I hope you, the reader have enjoyed it anyway!
