Short Story Friday: The Willows by Eileen Kump

There have been some excellent submissions so far to Short Story Friday. But too many of them are from Popcorn Popping and several are rather self-serving. That’s not a bad thing at all and we will get to them, but to kick things off, I decided to dig deep in to Dialogue’s archives. Here’s what I came up with:

Title: The Willows

Author: Eileen Kump

Publication Info: Dialogue v. 8, no. 2 (1973)

Why?: For these words: “If she heard the boulder.” Sorry to be so coy, but really, when the story hit that point all of a sudden it got me good.

Note: If you perfectly center the bottom slider the text should just fit in the window. Otherwise you have to scroll left and right.
