A Stranger Comes Home

Author’s Note

This story was inspired by a story told at a live storytelling event. I wasn’t impressed by the ending given and so made up my own. As it stands, it’s certainly more to my taste but I don’t think it’s any better. Subjectivity reigns.

The first draft mimicked the original closely with my ending tagged on - I wasn’t happy with it and it took a couple of re-writes for the story to find a voice.

Sometimes tragic stories contain hope. Or maybe I’m just an optimist.
