Devil’s Lair   

Patches of snow lingered on the ground as Katherine walked the narrow path through the woods.  The warmth welcomed, as winter had been so long, her husband walked behind her it had been months and she was not allowed out of the cabin.  His abuse never stopped, Katherine found herself a prisoner dropped in the middle of a forest; when he pushed her off the cliff at the end of the path she closed her eyes and welcome what was to come.  At the bottom of the cliff lay other women who thought that Cecil Cobb was a great catch.

    Great story! It says so much in such few words. Sad she ended up being another one of his victims.

    This caught and kept my interest with such adept descriptions. Wonderful short story, with a sad, pathetic ending.

    …though they in resplendent beauty lay in silent passing, the release a bittersweet moment in giving.
