Winter seemed reluctant to release its hold. The faint suggestion of a reprieve could be seen in the tiny buds on the stunted shrubs in the yard, but the cut of the wind was as fearsome as it had been since Jim had set out for the mainland in late October. Shona had received two packages from him, but nothing since the New Year. She wondered if he would come back in time for the birth.

Gaunt and bitter she struggled out to the shed, the child inside her belly…

Inheritance

There are some things I would rather not know, such as that my mom killed my dad. I mean, he was a bastard, but still. What was I supposed to do with that knowledge? She shouldn't have told me.

I don't remember him clearly, but I do remember the fights. He would come home drunk and start yelling, crashing around the house, throwing things and hitting out at anyone who got in his way. I mostly stayed in my room when he was around. Maybe that's why I can't picture him now.

Premonition

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
