Writes for All Magazine continues to break down the barriers of fiction in Issue II with three excellent short stories by James P. Hanley, Bob Kalkreuter, and Timothy Martin.

"Love Story Repeated" by James P. Hanley captivates the reader with a straight-to-the-point writing style that utilizes excellent prose and vivid imagery. The story is a quintessential example of how short fiction at its best can convey as much emotion as longer works.

"Easy Duty" by Bob Kalkreuter gives you a look inside a man who bears the emotional scars of war. The piece serves as a reminder of a unique greatness within literature: it describes emotions that are otherwise indescribable.

"Road Hunters" by Timothy Martin takes us to the rural city of Scotia where unemployment is high and opportunities are scarce.

To Clara: Regarding Your Critique

by Keith Hoerner

You shared your writing with me. An extension of friendship, like a handshake. More like the reaching out of hands with the chance to be held—or swatted—open palmed. Sharing, the emptying of pockets to reveal hidden things among the embarrassment of collected lint, is a dangerous proposition. Your shadows merged with mine, achieving the density of darkness that brings on the dawn. How can I thank you? For the bravery. For selflessly taking my hands and guiding me to an unknown resting place within the pages of you. I spoke in an attempt to reciprocate. My words: sandpaper to your beach of memory.

Love Story Repeated

by James P. Hanley

I ritually sat on the bleachers overlooking the skating rink and thought about Jenny. We had been through a lot: exciting, volatile courtship, simple wedding in 1970, and her near-fatal illness at the age of twenty five, cured by the costly doctors my wealthy father paid for when I thought she’d died. We were so exhausted by that experience, so off-track that we never recovered, even though she had healed. Our marriage had flattened, then seemingly faded, and the divorce followed.

The following twenty six years had not been tranquil for either of us. We both remarried and divorced for a second time; I have a daughter; she has no children, likely because of the early illness.

We kept in touch, mostly by holiday and birthday cards in which she added a handwritten update always with a phrase drawn from our joint past. For example, she jokingly said she named her dog after me—Preppy. The envelopes were addressed to only me, which irritated my second wife. In a local newspaper, I recently found a picture of Jenny receiving an award for volunteering. Still beautiful, her once long dark hair was cut short, and grey strands were unashamedly interwoven; only subtle lines around her mouth and on the edges of her eyes were concessions to age.

My Boston law firm, which I had taken over after my father’s death, was well-established. But I’d grown restless. Finding no solace in future plans or ambitions, I turned to the certainty of the past, and of Jenny. She was easy to find; she was using her birth name, living in a two-level house, enjoying an unheralded role in a New England symphony. Outside her home there was a sign, the lettering dulled by seasonal storms, on which her name and offer for music lessons were etched. More than once, I stood outside that building, staring
