CHAPTER 14 – CRACKS BETWEEN SHADOWS

March 4, 2011

Excerpt:

In hindsight, Angela thought, she should have just let the plate smash on the floor.  Cleaning it up would have been far less painful than listening to the boyfriend narrative.

Wade chuckled under his breath listening to Angela’s thoughts as he collected plastic containers and soft-drink bottles and shoved them into garbage bags.  Then thought, this is what garbage bags were meant for, trash, not human remains.

He hauled the rubbish bags outside, opened the lid to the bin and tossed them in.   It was hard to see garbage bags and not think about the ones that broken bodies had tumbled out of.  And the stench, from the decaying flesh – that had been putrid.

He watched as dark ominous clouds began to coagulate in the night sky.  A brisk breeze scuttled through his brown hair, coercing a stray tuft to fall across his corrugated brow.

Curtains billowed in the open windows; tree branches shushed as they stooped then rose.  Lose leaves fell aimlessly to the earth below.  A lone dog barked. Others joined in on the raucous chorus.  A silent cavalcade of flying foxes moved stealth-like overhead.

Wade paused for a moment listening, then he focused intently on the voices coming from inside the house.

“He does so Angela. I know it.  Can’t you tell by the way Josh looks at you? He can’t keep his eyes off you, and all that grinning, ugh. That’s a sure sign.”
