The Chocolate Was Sweet

In my quest for chocolate, I stumbled across a small lane, hidden away between buildings so tall I couldn’t see their roofs.  I stumbled into it, having been lost among a sea of similar shop signs claiming sales, and discounted goods.

Miss Hannah and her fear of the Ocean

Dismemberment

I’m not sure I’ll get away with this I thought to myself as I went to get the knife. I had been planning this for weeks but it’s easy to forget the minutae… I knew that, if I could just get the parts through customs without any suspicion, then I could get away with it. […]

The Gardener

Julia sat in the park on the same bench every day. She liked to come here and watch people walking through, or having their outside lunch, to take her mind of her own loneliness. She knew some of them now. The young girl with the rosy face who blushed every time a lad smiled at […]
