Door Number IIII
All eyes were on Wall Street, but truth be told, the market crash paled in comparison to the Navarro County drought.
Disturbed Affections consists of three short stories and two deranged love affairs. The Perpetual Series I and II and Door Number Four.
*Perpetual Darkness is told from the man's perspective; this is his side of the story. Max Hubbard is a drifter and like most transients he prefers living a life of anonymity. That is until he lays eyes on Abigail. "He merely followed his instinct, not giving any thought as to why he watched her."
*Perpetual Spring is told from the woman's point of view; this is her side of the story. After being forced into early retirement Abigail leaves Missouri and settles in the quiet countryside of La Grange. It's in this sleepy landscape she finds herself strangely attracted to the man who is watching her. "Some might consider him a stalker but she preferred to think of him as a guardian of sorts." Is this another Romeo and Juliet? No, but a tragic romance nonetheless.
*Door Number Four: Donald S. Crowley was a CPA by day; a bean counter; a number cruncher and a certified bore. By night he was as stimulating as the hero in his latest read with all the social skills of a brick and to make matters worse he was in love with a door. Not just any door, number four was special. Her alluring smile had caught Donald's eye when he was just a boy and she called him by name. Despite years of therapy and medications she still called to him. Now he would risk his life to see her again and to finally know what lay behind Door Number III.
These stories reveal the perplexities, the strengths and the weakness of people that are true to life and, like life, these stories expose the innate greed present in mankind.
“There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

Looking back: It is like sitting in the third row seat of an old station wagon, staring ahead at the road behind you...
It is not enough to sit in the front seat and see where you were going -- you didn't know anyway.
To understand how you got here you have to look at where you have been.
In that third row seat facing backwards you might be tempted to stare at the floorboard or the marks on your shoes or the stripes on the asphalt that never seem to end, but don't.
To understand you must look up, look back and accept the scenery for what it was.
When the pain and fury and fear rise up --remember it is only a hill in the distance, you have already passed over. That queasy feeling in your stomach is no more than a sour memory.

Roses From Ishmael is a short thriller by Janna Hill.
The story of a man in love, a grief stricken man;
an anguished and tormented soul but tormented by what?
Excerpt: Ishmael thought the flowers would be a nice touch. Roses were her favorite, red roses to be exact. These were slightly black around the edges and void of fragrance, but they were roses nonetheless.
