The Little Things

Sometimes in life it’s the little things that give us away, like planting a jasmine vine right near the compost heap or failing to put the shovel back in it’s marked place in the shed.

Maria’s Mother-in-Law knew that her son disliked white flowers and would never leave tools out in the rain so it came as no surprise when, after days of rain, his body emerged from the back garden.

On the way to the Police Station Maria cursed her stupidity in not digging the grave that little bit deeper.
