A Short Story

Violet’s mother was dead so she was free now. The weeks since the funeral had been a trial, but now it was time.

“He’s just a friend.”

“Oh, don’t. Don’t even. I know all about this friend scam. I used to be your friend, remember? Back then it was that Per guy listening to you say, ‘Oh, Anders? He’s just a friend´.”

They stood on the balcony side by side, looking out across…

I told her. I warned her on the first day of her reign.

I did a handspring. Then a cartwheel and then a hop that landed me at her feet. I bowed and then looked up into the wide grey eyes of all her kind. …
