Literature
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

Literature
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.

I have only one issue with spelling - I realise 'plow' is the US spelling, but ugh! - for worldwide consumption, it should really be 'p...


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

apologies for not getting back to you sooner, had to offload a few assessment pieces and i've got a couple left to do.

i haven't had a comprehensive look through your collection, so i'd go with any of your stories. if it's as good as the previous, i'd be happy with any you choose. :)

hey there again, I'd like to know if there's a way I can get your stories in PDF format.

as much as I love going through and faving each one of your deviations, I would like very much to read them in one compact file.

do you know of a way this can be done?

if not then thank you anyway for making such fantastic literature :)

I'm afraid it's an extremely complicated process. First, you have to send me a note with your email address in it. Then you have to tell me which stories you'd like. Then I email them to you. Like I said - terribly difficult.

I understand if it's confusing for you so I won't insist.
