Episode 27

The next morning, Deborah was woken from a deep sleep by her phone ringing loudly.

“Oh, blast,” she groaned drowsily while trying to grab it. She missed, sweeping it off the bedside cabinet and on to the floor. Reluctantly, she got out of bed, but it was too late. The moment she got hold of the phone to answer the call, it stopped ringing. As she rubbed the sleep from her eyes with one hand, she swiped the screen with her thumb to see who had tried to contact her.

Father by Lorraine Cormier


Gavin’s heart grew heavier with every step he took in the silent forest. The looming darkness of night seemed to reflect his gloomy thoughts. Thoughts and memories of his early childhood when he had taken a walk in the same forest with his late father.

The other camp felt it was better to wait until one of the mothers fully recovered after breaking her leg while foraging for yams.

Episode 26

“So, what was that stupid mistake you were talking about?” Deborah asked Jenny curiously, when they had finished talking to Norm on the footpath just outside the beach house.

The question made Jenny blush with shame. At the same time, Jenny knew it was better for both her and Deborah to get it off her chest. So, she cleared her throat and began to tell Deborah about the mistake that was troubling her.

“You mentioned stalking back there and that’s when I realized who could be stalking you.”

Deborah’s eyes opened wide as she listened closely to her sister’s words.

“Let’s go inside,” she suggested.

“Good idea,” Jenny replied, and they went inside through the front door.

Sun Rays by Robert Michie


Sunlight burst through the enormous windows and flooded the church where the young boy’s father preached. The boy stood there, unable to move, and gazed up in awe to where the light entered. It was then that he understood that in the same way light now reached into the darkest corners of the church, so would light reach into the darkest of hearts.
