A compilation of six short stories, most of which are on the darker side, but also containing a lighter piece.
The first story, The Locket, is a mysterious tale that ends up being a bit creepy, but in all of the right ways. To immediately off-set the tone of the first tale, I picked The Wishing Rock as my next story to show that I can write in a lighter, sweeter way. It's centered mostly around a young girl and a decision she comes to realize she has to make, with her mother and grandmother around for support. The last four short stories are all a bit more morbid than the first two, but in different ways. Clarisse's Undoing is the third story, focused around young, true love, and loss. I made a sequel to this story because I felt there was a little more left to be told. A Lifetime of Sorrow, (the sequel), follows Clarisse's Undoing, and is as peaceful as it is tragic. The King is the fifth short story, and while it starts off slow and innocent enough, the ending has a surprising twist. I ended with The Snake, as it was my most recent short story that I had finished. It concerns a certain drug, but there is also a surprise.
