Jock and the Cowstalk
[For easier reading, engage both the aA and Pilcrow (¶) symbols at the top right of the story.]
Once upon a time there was a boy called Jock who lived with his mother on a beanfarm, where they grew all sorts of beans except the broad ones. The farm was leased from the local king, for whom Jock's father had worked for many years until he died unexpectedly at the age of forty-one, after an accident involving a bicycle, a bucket and a bayonet … but that's not really important.
Jock had always wanted to be friends with the king's son, but although the prince thought Jock was quite spiffy, his father was really stuck up and wouldn't hear of the two boys playing together, so that was that.
One day in late summer, after their crop had ripened under a warm, cloudless sky, Jock's mother sent him out to harvest the beans and take them into town, to market. Jock being a handsome, well-set young man nearly two metres tall and built like a bulldozer, found the reaping easy and in no time

Probe - oh no.
I woke up with a 'what was that!' jerk, realising it had just been a dream, but this time, a useful one, because crazy though it had been, it'd given me a clue about the case I was working on. I was staying in this haunted house see, with six or seven other people and a couple of staff. We'd been trapped by the raging blizzard outside, all of us scared to death because one of us was a murderer.
I got dressed as quick as I could, because it was cold enough to freeze the knackers off a brass monkey. I knew this from the little statue of the three wise monkeys on my mantelpiece, with their paws over their mouth, eyes and ears. I'd examined it closely and none of them had any knackers.
I'd only reached the castle yesterday night, having been delayed by the death of the pilot who was flying the jet I was traveling on. Apparently, he'd been one of the sixteen people who'd eaten the fish. They'd all died too of course, but at the time they weren't really important. I'd reluctantly held up my

Anniversary
An eye, brimful, on a dusty road 'neath scudding clouds,
but no figure crests the hill.
A rose, long dead, rusted petals on the telegram,
its edges black, it lies there still.
She'd had no need to open it,
for she knew its message in her heart.
This day, that day, e'er the same,
yet so many years apart.
A sound; she turns and wipes away the tears,
Her handsome boy, fatherless these eleven years,
And she smiles, as his son banishes her fears.

Clever and striking, Mikey - I do like this - you've cut the figure well and the positioning inside the splash is pretty nigh perfect. ...

just finished 'rafe n me' :D

great moments every which way through the book. lots of giggles.

less giggles towards the 3rd quarter, which was expected as the story really plays out. last quarter was interesting & i'd say you spoilt the reader rotten with so much .. although i won't say more in case there are others reading it at the moment. :)

as for spelling mistakes i couldn't fault it.

thank you for letting me read the story. :D
