Amahle’s shadow stretched across the now-empty room. The last boxes had been carted off and the cleaning crew had done their magic.

The small suburban apartment sparkled.

She breathed in deeply, turned and locked the door. Slowly letting out her breath, she walked down the prettily paved path to the row of garrulous post boxes. Finding the landlord’s box, she slid in the key to her apartment, with its elegant, brass swan key ring.

She paused as she dug deep into her mind. She could still remember when her mind had been razor sharp. It had cut effortlessly through data and arguments. She could still remember the rush she had felt when she finally presented the prototype of the cold power engine that had gone on to earn her worldwide acclaim and a place in the history books.

  1. An interesting beginning. I, too, questioned the use of the word garrulous, and even googled it in case I had discovered another meaning of which I had been unaware. A sense of sadness and loss comes across. I would love to know more.

  2. I enjoyed the snippet and the details (I want a swan key!!!) but I have to say the word ‘garrulous’ took me completely out of the moment. Is she having a hallucination? Are these like the objects in Disney movies that talk LOL? That could be of course 🙂

  3. Garrulous is such an interesting way to describe post boxes! I can see them whispering together, commenting on the people who approach! It does seem sad though that her mind is no longer razor sharp. I wonder why? Great beginning, Kim!
