Do Not Suffer A Witch…

We tended to do most of our shared work after the sun had fallen. Old Leather seems to like it that way. It’s amazing what can evade notice in such a place as this. Imagine, if you will, a corpse strolling along any major high-street in any town or city in the UK, and then... Continue Reading →

Surprises. The boy was a surprise; he really was. My last recollection of him was as I was falling and he was falling too, but on top of me.

Lost Christmas…8
