Summer Jobs & the Krasnovas

"So, how's your headache?" Chelsey asked her mother. "It's gone," Ruth told her. "You've been having a lot of them lately. Don't you think you ought to go and see a doctor?" "No, I'm fine. So, how was Les Misérables?" "It was great. We were so engrossed in it that it didn't seem as long …

The Letter

Photo by Na’ama Yehuda He stared at the letter from Gracelyn.  She wanted him to visit her in prison but how could he?  She murdered two people.  It would have been three people if he hadn’t found Monifa in time.  He grew pale. It was his fault that Father Schmidt and Sister Augustin were dead.  …

Not Ally’s Dad
