Short Stories

  2. Baby Stink: The video is grainy and I’m getting drowsy but I can’t stop watching. I’m like an addict. I hit rewind and there she is, running away from my arms, pink-cheeked and smiling, back to her tricycle that magically rights itself just in time for her to climb on. […]

  4. The Greenhouse: The entire house held a fragrant surprise for her when she returned home from the lab one evening. Walking through the doorway she immediately knew that Jonah had been out in the garden cutting flowers. She could smell the earth in the house and the receptors in her nose recognized the scents of azalea and begonia, and this was half the pleasing allure, she knew—the familiarity.
