Excerpt

Immortal Souls

John and Mike sauntered across John’s pristine freshly cut lawn, listening to the crunch of the gravel pathway with each step of their new Nike running shoes. Raising their eyes simultaneously, they both stopped to admire a new addition to the Matsumoto's family lawn. There before them was a detailed merman fountain, carefully carved from head to tail.

Their rooms sat across the hall from each other. Mike had suffered from agoraphobia and his sister pitied him. Mike and his sister spent many nights together in the hallway talking until the break of dawn. However, as the years progressed, these nights became less frequent and the reminder of John’s wealth indirectly reminded Mike of the distance that had grown between the two...
