Voices in Brimstone
The Dissonant Heart
Wraiths at the Window
Secrets Only Children Know
The Automaton Who Became Self-Aware
The Perils of a Guilty Conscious Conscience
The Virtue of Silence
The Crying River
Death of Desire
Eliza Happenstance

It was only the virtue of silence that protected the secrets only children know.
Voices in brimstone and the dissonant heart of the automaton who became self-aware resembled the crying river of humanity as overseen by the wraiths at the window.
The perils of a guilty conscience resulted in the death of desire, and with it the Human Race. The world as Eliza Happenstance knew it was over.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
