Here’s an excerpt from Manher’s winning story ‘Saving Grace’ published in Out of My Box
Grace wiped the plate with the thin-ragged cloth. She looked dully at her reflection in the immaculate glass. Tears depart her eyes, making her cheeks turn blood red. A lump in her neck battled her to work any further. It lost.
When the dishes were through, Grace started scrubbing the coffee table. She urged her eyes to keep open. Energy escaped her body. Fatigue was screaming at her to stop. It lost.
As soon as she recognized the clatter of her husband parking his motorcycle, she hurriedly brushed off the blemishes from the table and stood up attentively. The wicked being entered through the long-standing dull door. He set aside his empty bottles he held onto on the coffee table. Started limping towards his bedroom. “What happened to your leg?” Grace asked, looking down at the floor.
“I tripped,” he cleared his throat, “Give me a fresh pair of clothes.” He ordered and disappeared into the darkroom. Grace followed his instructions and fulfilled his command. Afterwards, Grace took out the mop and wiped the muddy footprints he left behind.
