Cannabistro; Bridal Shower

It sat there beckoning to me, the chest that belonged to my grandmother sat in front of me, the lawyer had left it there right after I signed off some papers. I was still amazed that it was all Granny left behind for me, but it had to be of some value to me. I…

For Anne

She slept in one room and woke up in another. "I must be sleepwalking" she would say, but I always reminded her that I had locked the doors from outside the previous night.
