Watery Graves

by Kelli Bradicich

Emmy is cursed to die in a watery grave. She lives by Mercy River, a river that has drowned everyone related to her. Her mother, Ingrid lives in fear that Emmy will be next. Emmy believes it will find a way to take them both.

Emmy and Ingrid share a mountain top home with Maya and Kristian, and their son Sebastian. Their life is simple and self-sufficient. Their relationships with each other deeply connected as a close-knit family. The curse that hangs over Emmy’s head keeps everyone vigilant. Her family teaches her to swim in case she needs it one day. The Mercy Falls community looks on with interest and entertains themselves with endless gossipy judgements about the family’s weird ways. All those with a memory of the deaths hold tight to a common thought that one day the river will take Emmy and Ingrid too. That belief has become a fatalistic community fact before their deaths have even happened.

Sebastian is the one who begins to think differently first. He steps out into the wider world defying the paddock fences that aim to keep them safe but hemmed in. He discovers things that he wants to share with Emmy. Emmy has no interest in change and desperately wants him to go back to the way he was.

When Maya gets sick, she becomes Sebastian’s greatest ally. She too begins to think that it would be safer in the end for Sebastian and Emmy to learn to be out and free to roam the streets of Mercy Falls. She uses her wisdom to draw Ingrid around. They begin to see that being sheltered can be a danger in itself.

The river rises and falls through all the grief, loss, new love and change. With all the good Mercy Falls township brings, bad comes tumbling in with it. Emmy fights it all the way. The more that is lost, the more she realises there is to lose. The further Emmy strays from her sheltered world, the greater the chances that Mercy River will take her too. Will her survival depend on the mercy of the town people, the mercy of the river or both? As Emmy’s mountain world crumbles she tempts fate and learns the value of facing her fears.

The Ornament

by Zeke Changuris

The Ornament is a story spun from the romantic ideals shaped by the works of Bronte, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Austen and Cervantes. In my formative years, I was glued to the screen watching old black and white tales of love as they played on television on weekend afternoons. The stories of loss and unrequited love filled my imagination leaving me with, in some ways, a warped sense of what love was. I guess the line from the Man of La Mancha “To love pure and chaste from afar” summed up my almost Victorian sense of romance. I quickly became an expert on romance, relationships and broken hearts for others but unable to find or act on that advice for myself leaving me constantly in the company old friends like Anne of Green Gables and Lizzie Bennet.

When I found myself working in a newsroom, falling for a reporter and doing all I could to make her notice me as more than a friend, I needed an outlet. That is how The Ornament was born. The story was conceived in the early hours of the morning on a dirty desk from the Rubbermaid collection in a small-market newsroom in between bouts of breaking news and chamber of commerce breakfast meetings.

I wrote and rewrote the story adding and subtracting never knowing where this more romantic world would take me. I remember truly being happy when I realized what was going to happen next, or that time I was driving to work and began to cry as I realized what tragedy was about to befall our hero. The characters may have started out as copies of people I knew, and even myself, but after countless rewrites each one became an amalgam of many people I’ve met in my career.

The Ornament is, if anything, a statement of my firm belief that a true friendship, even a chaste one, is an example of love more powerful than all the passion ever kindled.
