Three Corners – It Lived in the Shed

For sweet William. It was dark blue, cobalt, the colour was called something fancy but essentially it was blue... A deep stormy night sky blue that held the promise if years and decades of fun to come... It had sat discarded, almost forgotten hidden under a tarp out the back…

Three Corners – Marshmallows

You could hear the giggles all the way up the valley. They snuck under doors, around verandahs, they floated up the small ridges and through the canopied forest. They drifted under the pecans to the farmstead and through the gaps in the Liquid Ambers and Agapanthus. The giggles that came…

Three Corners – The Flower Thief

The offender sat quietly in her cell. She wasn't a flight risk, the door, in deference to the lack of heating was open, however it didn't stop the severe disappointment of the police officer who brought her in, nor the sigh of resignation that came from the duty officer in…

Three Corners – Scorch Marks

His house, a 1930's concrete bungalow, was always immaculate; the lawn neatly clipped, the bromeliads flowering, the lavender trim,…

Three Corners – Writer’s Block

At first he thought it was an apparition…. Then a late night hallucination, brought on by too much work, stress and lack of sleep… but after the third night he realised that what was happening outside was as real as the deadline he was pushing. As real as the domestic…

Three Corners – The Street Library

The installation of a street library started a small war in Three Corners. Quite unintentionally. Declarations were made, lines drawn, friendships that had spent a lifetime in solidarity split asunder, and one marriage ended in divorce. A little cream box, with a blue metal roof that perched precariously on top…

Three Corners – Flying

Sneaking past the blue bike in the laundry was the hardest. Everything was crammed in so tight it was hard to manoeuvre. Or so he thought. But squeezing in between the two cars in the garage was harder, trying to minimise space taken, not to touch either of the cars:…
