Davey’s Redemption

Davey was frightened. He had made all sorts of mistakes in life, and now it had come to this, he thought to himself as he gazed fixedly into the putrid black water. Thinking all the usual thoughts  that people think in Davey’s position – he was practiced at them by now – he contemplated the […]
