Good Narrative Principles

Character Flash: Keep the Home Fires Burning


I’ll tell you, when the phone rang, I nearly jumped straight out of my seat. I don’t get many calls since Lorraine was sent up river. It was Pete, our “kindly” local sheriff calling to tell me that Lorraine has gone missing. Since then, I haven’t slept much. Haven’t left the house either. As I’m not one for stocking a pantry, I’ve been living on cold pizza which is mostly fine since dread has taken up residence in the pit of my being. I miss Lorraine. That much is true. I’d give anything to wrap my arms around her and hold her tight. But if she comes home now, they’ll shoot her dead for sure cuz that’s how they do it in the movies.
