Love Fades Away Slowly

Enid shed plenty of tears the day Timmy Lancaster punted Alice into the ravine that backed along the end of Wedgewood Street.

Mother did nothing to comfort Enid’s aching heart, saying that some lessons are best learned alone. “One day you’ll see how love fades away slowly, the way time shows his face upon old photographs.”

(Only Alice can tell you how she wound up in the window of the glove factory.)
