My stories

Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Twenty-One)

'I've got nothing left to lose,' I told him. 'You haven't asked about your sister,' he said.
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Twenty)

Face to face with the man I had been searching for, the man I grew up with, the man who betrayed me. The man who was either dead or had never existed.
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Nineteen)

Living on my home world disturbs me. Spider webs disturb me though I've never seen a spider. We learn to live with disturbance, with always being disturbed
Cherry

The Net Caster (Part Eighteen)

Not all blight survivors survive intact. 'You kept me drugged for a week?'

Such a sad and courageous story - what a brave little girl and now a very brave woman.  However hard it is, please do keep going with telling your story.  You're in charge of this story now, not that horrible man.

And don't forget that there's mini plastic, or whatever it's called, in bottled water.  It's probably in tap water too, but at least you're not paying extra for it.

Really interesting question. 

Posted on Sun, 25 Mar 2018

The way you use both the words and the flowers as signifiers, and then indicate that it was language that finished the relationship, is very effective.  Memory is preserved in all sorts of vessels, in all sorts of ways.  I enjoyed reading this....

Orion keeps watch in the sky above our garage.  When my kids were small I pointed him out and told them this, and they were staggered when they found out they could see him elsewhere.  He remains their 'special' piece of the sky, and I hope they...
