It’s an Enigma.

They reached the doors of the great hall and Timonthy tried to voice his concerns before they entered and everyone could hear him. He knew that Gerard was looking at him with an expression of concern but he had to speak. “Stolid is…not himself,” he settled for. “He hasn’t been right since Johnathon died.” “I understand that better than you can imagine,” Peter replied. “Although […]

Learning to drive in a small space

“I’m hoping you know the way,” he settled for saying. The journey to Scotland, their eventual arrival in a clearing in the woods – it was all settling vaguely in his mind “It was this way,” Gerard said and they began walking along the lake edge again. As they crossed over the grass covered bridge Timonthy pursed his lips and shook his head. He remembered […]

The Mystery of Johnathon

That made Timonthy think: it must be a trick or Johnathon must have told Stolid in some unguarded moment. “Stolid doesn’t know. You can ask him if you can find him,” Koa’s voice was just a trace on the wind now. Or Lizzie must have told Koa. Timonthy could imagine Koa wheedling secrets from her just to impress him with the ludicrous story. It was […]

Stolid Falls Apart With an Unusual Delusion

“I’m sorry I wasn’t here when you arrived but hopefully you found everything you needed. We’re not used to guests and I imagine that Stolid has some plan for you but if not I would feel guilty about leaving you to your own devices but perhaps that is what you would prefer.” “Do you know where Stolid is?” Lizzie asked. “I suppose we ought to […]

Reality in an Unreal place

Sometimes though, he grew tired of his own careful approach to life and purposely he did things that were stupid and not well thought out. He nearly always regretted these things after although it might be that the ones he regretted were only the most memorable. Now he thought of it, it was one of these moments in which he had decided to act as […]

Peter’s Unexpected Evening of Entertainment.

Stolid excused himself and left the room at this point. Peter watched him with an enigmatic look on his face. Stolid made him sad as well as the contemplation of his work, Timonthy realised. It was typical of human nature that a man who had good health, probably excessive wealth, a beautiful property, a wife and son who appeared to love him and something to […]

Was it the Good Stuff?

He produced a jug from under the table with a quick look to make sure no-one was looking. Timonthy finished the water in his stoneware tankard and pushed it forwards next to Gerard’s. Koa poured out four tankards with a furtive air and pushed two of them back. He lifted his own mug and clinked it against Gerard’s in the air. They had done this […]

What is the Real Truth?

“You would think I was mad or playing some sort of elaborate joke on you.” What if that was true? What if he really feared that Gerard was mad? Would that mean he wanted him to stop teasing him? “I fear that you would hit me and I would be left unconscious on the floor again.” How angry would he have to make him to […]

Time acts weirdly with no explanations

“How did she entice you?” Paris asked. Koa restrained a laugh. There was a story there, whether they would get to hear it or not. “She provided us all with everything we needed to live comfortably: shelter, food, freedom from strife.” “Ah, there you all are?” They heard Lizzie’s voice from the entrance to the courtyard, sounding apologetic and slightly groggy still. “I’m so sorry.

The Waterfall – An Enticing Feature Captivates them

They walked along borders, through mowed lawn paths and fruit trees in various stages of blossom, interspersed with white beehives of the same design as the ones spotted by Mr Philips – ages ago it seemed in Stolid’s garden. Until passing through another gateway in the far side of the wall they found themselves wandering towards a dark squat wooden building straddling another river. “The […]
