​Lieutenant Evan Arden sits in a shack in the middle of nowhere, waiting for orders that will send him back home - if he ever gets them. Other than his loyal Great Pyrenees, there's no one around to break up the monotony. The tedium is excruciating, but it is suddenly interrupted when a young woman stumbles up his path.



He has two choices - pick her off from a distance with his trusty sniper-rifle, or dare let her approach his cabin and enter his life.

Why not? It's been ages, and he is otherwise alone...

reviews

LizzieMac09 - Short-story writing is a real art, and not everyone can do it; creating a truly captivating plot, with well-rounded and multi-dimensional characters within the short-story format is no easy task, but Ms Savage has hit every button.

Ana B C - She's insightful and intense, and has a knack of putting unassuming words together and making them into something entrancing. Her storytelling is addictive and beautiful, and it leaves you with an undeniable sense of wonder.

J. Sokolowski She paints pictures with words that describe, in graphic detail, the desolate and isolated world of a man in exile. In no way was I able to predict the outcome of this riveting, almost harrowing in places, unexpected little gem.
