Memories and Marshmallows

The sky-blue swell pounded the breakwater at Borthel on Sea in a steady rhythm. John gazed out at the mountains across the broad bay and drew a deep calming breath. The anxiety that had built up and wracked him in recent months and on his spontaneous long drive from the city eased its intensity.

Memories and Marshmallows is a short story from the Tall And True writers’ website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
