Nine short chapters, 3,827 words(ish) and no mushrooms.

Early morning, okay, afternoon. Door bell will not let him sleep, knocking on the window makes it harder and the shouting of his name through the letter box makes it impossible. So he answers the door naked, apart from socks, and an old, maybe unknown, woman hands him a book. An old book, a heavy book, a fluffy kitten embossed book. Where will this lead? To be honest, I have no idea...

This is a great short-story. Mysterious, humorous: I actually laughed out loud a couple of times!

Congrats!

Biography 


Still alive, or so it seems... Trying very hard to finish my novel - 70,000 words after three months, 71,000 words after 5 years. So for now I shall stick to attempts at short stories to relieve the pressure on my over-active imagination... It is not my job to make sense, but it is your job to pretend to understand me... Love you all... PETE
