Three of us are huddled by the campfire, nothing but our faces lit on this starless night.
Georgina’s between us and she’s laughing at Brad’s jokes. Jealously creeps up my spine.
But then a hand reaches across and holds mine. Instantly I relax. Georgina has chosen me!
‘I’m heading to bed,’ she says.
Her eyes will answer the question on my mind.
I turn to look at her and discover I’m looking deep into the eyes of Brad.
Georgina has already left.
Then whose hand…?
Brad’s own face turns from longing… to disgust.
And we never mention it again.
In July this year I began my 100 book challenge, where I plan to read 100 classics before I die.
See my recent reviews of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Brave New World and let me know what you think!

‘But the man said you shouldn’t go in the old farmhouse, Justin…’
‘Our one source of light and warmth is about burn out, we have no more firewood and it’s going to be a cold night. There’s bound to be some old planks in the farmhouse we can use.’
Front door battered and scratched. Lift the lock while you turn the key. Great location.
Up a flight of stairs. Along a dark narrow corridor. Up a steep wooden ladder.
This was the room for rent.
Small. With one tiny window overlooking the Plaza de la Merced. A bed, a desk and a chest of drawers.
Stairs. Corridor. Ladder. One way in.
Later that night they finally found her. Looked like she’d been trying to push her blackened body through that one tiny window.
Great location. Views of the Plaza. One way in.
One way out.
