Carolyn Brady smoothed down the front of her skirt and checked the seams of her stockings. Then with a deep sigh she knocked tentatively on the door to Wentworth’s office. A rather strained muffled voice answered and although Carolyn couldn’t quite work out what was said she guessed it was alright to go in. She […]


Mercy Cosby blew the ghost of a length of long since shorn brown-black hair from her nose and then ran her fingers through the tousled remnants that sat unkempt on her head. The heat of the region was such that she did not have time for vanities, or anything much else she realised. Time was […]

John Haskins crossed the yard with a sigh. The weather had been clement of late and the light breeze from the woods and beyond it the sea should have put him a good humour. The sea, he almost forgot his duty as he looked eagerly towards the woods. The Sussex coast was so wild in […]

Previously someone had written that they did not know what was worse cornertime when you were the centre of attention of standing int the corner and being completely ignored. […]


The car made a slow turn at the bend and began to climb the hill. It was steep enough and the car laboured for a moment before the engine caught.
