An exclusive tale from C.G.Allan's forthcoming first collection of short fiction...
MY life has always been filled with questions. Most of them begin with "Why" and end with "me", but about three hours ago I was faced with a new, more profound question which has forced me to try to forget my own problems for the present moment at least.
It was 7pm again and I had become thirsty as I always did at 7pm.
In setting this down now I hope to help myself remember, for the thirst makes me forget things quickly.
Typically, my pockets were empty. When my pockets became light like that I always visited those who had been my friends before.
