Third Person

Reflecting on the past he could not remember how or why he had been invited the party. His immediate group of work mates were there, and a few additional guy who probably got invited to all the parties. They had the confidence and the cars to match, they were also five or six years older, […]

Let The Wind Blow

It was upon us before we had time evacuate. The call had gone out on local radio that it was heading across our part of the country. I now felt I had wasted time fitting the storm shutters as I could see only a mile away the tight knit black clouds linked to the earth […]

Please Don’t Be Alarmed

It took me time to find the bar initially, Glasgow was as an unknown to me then, as it is now.  It was my 7th visit to the same place as I only had a reference point of location, not time. Money was going to be a problem as cash looked different in 1981. Although […]

I was originally going to post this under the recent mental health meme for SB4MH, however, a collaboration post with May More placed this in the drafts box.

Apologise

It wasn’t guilt that that caused this revelation, or being caught, it just felt that I should, you know, ‘do the right thing.’  Although, I really didn’t give a fuck if I was honest. The charge that ran through my body was far too strong to worry about apologises. We had been invited round to […]

The Red Assassin

The morning mist still clung to the hills and spilled down to the lake. The sun was rising and as the chill started to depart from the air, he shivered. Inside the hut another man traced the curves of the woman lying next to him with his eyes. The world was silent and cool from […]

Angry Voice

If he had been at home he would have heard the front door slam with the effect of a gunshot, and through the broken glass panel the sound of an angry voice. “Fuuuck you arsehole!” But he wasn’t at home, he was at work, and by the time he did make to his flat the […]
