A Long Way to Fall – SHORT STORY

“Why didn’t he just kill himself?” They raised a knowing eyebrow, concentrating on the ‘road’ as the headlights shot the dark until it bled halogen. “Well?” “Honour.” That one word killed the noise of the car as they flew away from Osaka into the mountains, a myriad of searching lights behind them spat from the… Continue reading A Long Way to Fall – SHORT STORY

The Big Lonely – SHORT STORY
