Clive leans against his wooden stick, and wanders back to the day Mary became his wife. He couldn’t keep it. They didn’t have a daughter – not any more. She never did see her second birthday.

The shop assistant stepped through the wooden door, and gently took it off the mannikin. Holding it over her arm, she disappeared back into the shop.

Maybe today was the day!

He didn’t know how long he was standing there, but a young woman walked out of the charity shop. In her arms a package.

He smiled, fading into the air, to join his wife.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
