The Red Thread

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break."

In this story 'Red' is actually a border collie, the ghost of a border collie to be exact, that resides in a village that the main characters Aunty grew up in.
She spent many childhood summers at her Aunty's cottage and was raised on stories about a special sheepdog but she never thought they were true.

Home

Addressing Him

Me mooning over the boy I love before I properly loved him.

Addressing Anthony

Talking to a fairly distant childhood friend, on realising how horrid I am to him on a daily basis.

Addressing Aidan

Me talking to my brother, after an argument over sunday lunch.

Addressing Nessa

Generally when I'm venting a little bit this is the sort of thing I write. I don't really know how to describe it or what genre to put it in, but it's basically me talking to my person of choice and being completely honest for once. I've done quite a few of these, none long enough to constitute a chapter. This is the first one I ever wrote, still my favourite.
