Hey!! What's the story?
Patrick was a roguish lad, alone in the world but for his mother. Come winter, he fuelled their fire with palings stolen from neighbour’s fences.
The drunkard, Beavis, almost caught him yesterday, but Patrick was undeterred. He tore loose another paling and saw through the gap, Beavis, pounding his wife with gnarly fists. Patrick remembered then; another angry man, another frightened woman. He landed that paling not in his mother’s hearth but to Beavis’ head.
As he helped the battered lady to her feet, he fancied he’d meted out justice and thought he’d like to see his father again.
