Looking Glass Lives by Felice Picano

Looking Glass Lives

Felice Picano

A rather sad story that follows tragedy across generations in a house. No-one ends up the winner in this story. An air of mystery surrounds the well.

Extract

That was the afternoon I realized that I could not deny Chas anything he wanted from me, the day I realized he had made a slave of me, just as he said he would after that first meeting, when he sucked the blood from my hand.
