“Have I met you before?”


“Are you sure?”


“Where I have I seen you then?”

“I have met your mother, your father, your sister, and grandparents,” he said, irritably. “But not you.”

She looked at him. “Are you sure?”

“Yes,” he said. “Well, at least, not until now.”

They laughed; his far heartier than hers.

She shivered. His black cloak and queer scent was off putting.

“So,” he said, leaning closer, “I suppose introductions are in order.”

“No,” she said. “I know who you are.” She clicked her seat belt in.

‘Drat.’ He left. She got home safely.

Warning Signs

There’s not a lot you can say about Patty Kerns that hasn’t already been pontificated on at length. But there’s one story about her that belongs only to me.

We were sitting on the porch when a gator came crawling from the swamp. It wasn’t so unusual and we’d normally shout for the gardeners to come scare them away. But Patty wanted to prove she wasn’t scared, so she started kicking at that gator with her brass-buckle shoes until it turned back from lawn.

She was only 8 years old at the time. I knew then we were all doomed.
