    Summary

    In a leafy lane of Devon
    There's a cottage that I know,
    Then a garden—then, a grey old crumbling wall,
    And the wall's the wall of heaven
    (Where I hardly care to go)
    And there isn't any fiery sword at all.
    - Alfred Noyes

    “What your uncle was doing, leaving the whole sorry mess to you, I can’t imagine,” the aunt tuts. Her emphasis makes it rather unclear which part she find less explicable: the bequest, or the recipient. “But the man always was rather odd. Always reading, or digging up a field on some contrived excuse.” Aunt Edwina levels her nephew with a rather pointed glare and he looks quickly away.

    “I’m sure it won’t take long,” the nephew sidesteps cautiously.

    Summary

    “And I’m not there, Ron!” Alex came to the side of Ron’s chair, crouching down to meet his gaze eye to eye. “This finally happens to them and I wasn’t there, I’m not there, I have to be there, I can’t leave them again. I can’t just sit around and read the folder and do nothing.”

    For the first time, he saw some of his own distress dawn in Ron’s eyes.

    “Wait, you mean… You can’t mean...? You want…? You want to join them?”

    Summary

    “The crew is all packed up and making a move, so I thought we could hitch a lift to the station.”

    Peter checks his watch over her shoulder, in case an hour and a half has snuck past him in less than five minutes. It hasn't. “We'll be a bit early,” he says hesitantly.

    Summary

    “But you brought me tea a few times, so you’ve won my allegiance forever," Ruth says.
    “What a boon indeed,” Peter yawns sleepily, “to win the protection of a fae lady in exchange for two mugs of tea.”

    Summary

    “Well, you’re more of a filthy farmer than saucy sailor and you’ve no silver in your pockets, love, so we’ll have to give you a good scrub,” Ruth says firmly.
    Peter half-chokes, startled. “You’re not - you’re not going to wash me,” he says firmly.

    Summary

    “Carry him out with his feet facing the house,” is all he can say. He feels grey, washed out. Hollow. Like nothing. This is important, though, in ways he cannot yet name. The undertaker blinks, shifts from one foot to the other. Perhaps he believes in the old tales, of the dead finding their way back to their houses, spirits along the corpse roads. Perhaps he makes sure to cross running water on the way to the graveyard, guards against corpselights on the moors. Alex doesn’t care. “Please,” he says.

     

    A little festive ghost story, involving death, apples, bread, the Wild Hunt, iron nails and a pair of boots.
