Bancha 2 The Job

Bancha 2 The Job

They were cops.

Alexandra could have given many reasons, had you asked her, why she knew they were cops. Given her black skin, you could be forgiven for assuming all her reasons were negative ones but that was not the case. In fact, at least a third of those reasons were positive and very strong ones at that.

Bancha 3 Silhouette

“Haunting, isn’t it?”

The young woman turned toward Sophia and nearly dropped the print. “You startled me!”

“I’m sorry,” Sophia said. “You were so lost in the image that I should have known better. Does it remind you of someone?”

Looking back at the image of the man about to walk over the hill and out of sight, perhaps forever, the young woman said nothing for a full minute before swallowing hard and saying, “It was a long time ago. There’s nothing anyone can do about it now.”

“And yet,” said Sophia, “you can’t put it down.”

Assam 1 Can You See Me?

Assam 1 Can You See Me?

Sophie's Cove, where there's a little bit of everything for sale, yet everyone leaves behind more than they take with them.

Let's observe a man who has seen it all, traveled the world, is quite well off. Those privy to some of his darker secrets, but not all, would state that his true wealth is far beyond imagining.

But what have his vast riches cost him of himself? Could a chance encounter, decades ago, come back to haunt the conscience of this hardened man of commerce? We're about to find out because he just walked through the front door of Sophie's Cove.

Sophie's Cove, where there's a little bit of everything for sale, yet everyone leaves behind more than they take with them.

Becky replaced the vase onto the low shelf that served as a window display and looked up just as a woman dressed in a long leather coat with a leather helmet and old fashioned goggles whizzed by with her thumb in the air. She rode a strange contraption that could have been fathered when a bicycle made love to a junkyard.

But that is only the beginning of our story because little did Becky realize how much she would leave behind once she stepped through the door of Sophie's Cove.

Assam 3 An Extraordinary Family

Assam 3 An Extraordinary Family

Sophie's Cove, where there's a little bit of everything for sale, but everyone leaves with less than they brought with them.

A rewrite of an eariler story.

The Williams family has defied every norm with poise, integrity and dignity and it shows. Each of Alexandra and David Williams' children prove with every word and action the old adage that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. There's just one tiny, and precious, fly in the ointment.

It's a wonderful day for all concerned when this loving family finds its way, somehow, to Sophie's Cove.
