Marlys was a different woman every day.
“Don’t ever leave me,” she’d say. He promised to stay.
“I’ll never feel normal again. You should just go.”
He still promised to stay.
I’m delighted to share that my new story “Bleed” is up on the Pen of the Damned website. “Bleed” is a very dark tale that is, tragically, based on something that happened to a wonderful woman and mother that I know. This short story helped me work my way through it. It is always easier to study something horrendous under the lens of literature, and isn’t that one of the reasons we write? Please stop by and read “Bleed” here.
Be kind to each other, dear ones, and know you are loved.
