Raoul is overwhelmed by the stink of bleach, beer dregs, and burger fat. But when you're on the hunt, distractions can be fatal. Particularly if you have a boss as murderous as Raoul's. A darkly funny tale foraged from the heart of the city. This story is part of a compilation called Tales of Urban Encounters.
Ever shared a room on holiday with a friend and just - wanted - to - kill - them! Two old friends holiday at the Havana Libre Hotel in Cuba. Only to discover they're not the only ones falling apart. This short story is part of a compilation entitled Tales of Urban Encounters.
It's time David stopped brooding over his latte froth and moved on. But a flash of her blonde hair and he's hunting through the London streets for her. But what will he find? A tale of obsession, love, and loss....
However hard he runs, there is always the water. His sweaty face. His sodden body in the shower. And that leaking tap. But he can't stop, because he's so close to getting her back. That's if he doesn't lose it first.
Short stories foraged from the heart of the city. When your existence threatens to implode with the struggle of urban domesticity; the pointlessness of switching, swopping and up-grading - taste some feral freedom. Set in cafes, streets, supermarkets and pubs; these tales drag the debris of messy lives out from their familiar urban locations. Why is Irene clinging to a drainpipe outside the hospital? Will David be trapped forever stirring the stick in his latte? And is your local boozer worse than Raoul's Saturday night watering hole? Abridged short stories.
