Schrodinger's Baby by H R McGregor

Schrodinger's Baby

H R McGregor

A mixture of extreme emotions within the bonds of friendship between five students sharing a claustrophobic house in Glasgow. Cigarettes, alcohol, soft drugs and casual sex - and then the discovery of a body.


Extract

Part of my distaste was merely infatuation and overprotectiveness. Now Kerry was mine. I was in her corner and so Petruchio was a villain. Whatever, the fact is that my discovery of Petruchio's misdemeanour coincided with the beginning of my love affair with Kerry, to which everything took second place, and around which everything revolved.
