Weston met Deputy Thomas at the rental office door. “Thanks
for coming out in this mess. I know you guys must be busy with the

Inside the Waukesaw Sheriff’s Department Offices, the steam
heat sputtered audibly as it strained to keep up with the sudden
blast of cold air outside. The blizzard had forced the Sheriff to
call in extra officers to deal with the multitude of problems the

Adam appeared to have to collected himself. Ice hit him like that sometimes. He would talk on, especially about his brother, Scott. He opened the patio door, lit a cigarette blowing the smoke outside.
“We could go out on the patio if you want to smoke. And, Lex, she’s still there… Read full post »

“Jeannie, come into the office. I’m going to shut down early anyway. I only opened for that one showing.”
Jeannette, cradling her cat, padded down the steps. She wore a morose expression and moved slowly.

Marilyn paused at the doorway as she exited the bedroom, “Get out of here! Get yourself together. It’s snowing. We’re going to need the walks and steps done. Honestly, Frank, this time you’ve really sunk. I don’t know if I can keep making excuses for you. Straighten this… Read full post »
Downstairs from Jeannette, life had stirred many hours before.
Marilyn Weston surveyed her littered living room. She straightened the couch cushions and gathered up some items. She peeked into the rental office from a door in the living room to see if any checks had been dropped… Read full post »
In the darkened bedroom the harsh light of a single street light from the parking lot penetrated the shades and thick curtains of her second story window. The light was highlighted with jumpy televisions from a second bedroom and living room.

The small, trolling motor kicked on. They putted out, heading for an island about 100 yards in the middle of the river.
“Lex, you’re starting already? Damn it.”

Fucking start! He knew once he got the car to drive he would be in the clear. On the second try the car started. He punched it into gear and stomped the pedal. He pulled out of the spot. He snapped on the brights, they swept over the windows and… Read full post »

The man shivered and clutched his arms around himself as he walked toward the building. In his drunken state he could feel the colder striations in the warm air. He went to a ground level apartment behind the building. A cigarette dangled from his mouth. He reached into a large… Read full post »
The weather was mild for an early November day in western Wisconsin. The unusual warmth was a bonus for early rising duck hunters.
