Blood on the Snow

Blood on the Snow

Joe looked forward to his cup of tea in the beautiful surrounds; the Retirement Village he now called home was a good place to live. He hoped that the new owners of the house he had shared with Joy for the last sixty years appreciated their garden.  After Joy’s death the sale had been inevitable. […]

Moonflower

Moonflower

Well, that was hard work! Pushing through the hard earth is tiring enough, but then there was the snow to contend with. The powdery fluff on top isn’t the problem; it’s the impacted icy layer underneath that I had to push through first. I don’t have sword-shaped leaves for nothing, but they are rather thin […]

Not Mine to Keep

Not Mine to Keep

Beautiful. The crocus, its velvety violet petals curling toward the sky, gleaming. Kneeling next to it, the boy, pale-faced and dark-haired, with eyes so blue they look violet. Amidst the snow, bathed in moonlight, both are beautiful. I stand a few feet away, not daring to move. It seems like a crime to disrupt them. […]

Wild Bill

Wild Bill

Bill was so tired he could hardly sit upright in the saddle. He knew his horse was exhausted as well, but they had to keep going. They had to get to the railway station before midnight. Sweet Sue was there with the money and clean bandages. He’d lost a lot of blood, could barely see, […]

Persian Carpet

Persian Carpet

Kendra sank into the thick burgundy cushions, watching the console with anticipation. What has darling Zoë prepared for breakfast today? The console shutter lifted and there it was – an organic blueberry smoothie accompanied by gluten-free bread lightly toasted with herbs and orgo-butter. Scrumptious! She scanned today’s reading selection, also prepared by Zoë. “Fragments of […]

The Legacy

The Legacy

Melrose was astonished when his rich uncle Bertie died and left him an envelope containing a brief note, a hand-written, gilt-edged voucher, and a personal telephone number marked “call to confirm”. “Train tickets?” Cathy scoffed.  “The guy was a millionaire. Why not leave you money, or a house?  What could we possible want with train […]

Walking Holiday

Walking Holiday

“I’m here now.” “I didn’t send for you.” “I thought you did.”  I lightly touch the picture in my pocket, the fragile connection that held the first ray of hope for many months. “I love this place.” Her voice was strong and clean, confident, a far cry from the slightly dazzled little girl voice I […]

Ticket To Ride

Ticket To Ride

My first ride on the S bus happened by accident. Literally. An ugly fender bender landed my brand new car in the shop, three days after I paid a fortune for it. I stomped out of the garage, wondering how I would get to work. Just then, a city bus came rumbling by. The destination […]

The Memory Seat

The Memory Seat

The old rocking chair under the ornamental pear was her memory seat; she loved all seasons in that chair. Spring and Summer were beautiful, but nothing compared to the beauty of watching the leaves of the Red Spire pear fall at her feet as the cool winds increased. They had shared a blanket and their […]

Bearing Fruit

Bearing Fruit

The tree would never bear fruit again. It once provided the whole neighbourhood with crisp tasty apples. Harry delighted in handing one to each child passing on the way to school and bagfuls to their mothers for pies and crumbles, cobblers and dumplings. The leaves shrivelled and branches drooped when Harry battled the insidious cancer […]

A Magical Tour

A Magical Tour

“Grandpa, we are going to the magic show tomorrow, aren’t we?” exclaimed Drake. Grandpa looked at the earnestness in the eyes of his 8-year-old grandson. He didn’t have the heart to say no, but he had no means to say yes either. “Get ready tomorrow,” he said nonetheless. The next day an excited Drake was […]
