002 – His Garden

Author: Jim  //  Category: Rated G

His Garden, original fiction by Edward McDermott. Narrated by Ken Stoeffler, host of The Flatus Show.

I was in grade five when I first met Mr. Hamilton. That was the
year my father died and my mother had to start working again. That was
the year that Mike Todd and his friends decided to make my life
unbearable.

On that crisp spring day I could smell the earthworms in the
ground and see a fog of green buds surrounding the trees. I thought
I’d lost Mike by taking a different street home that afternoon. I
didn’t count on Mike’s persistence. Like dogs after a fox I could hear
them hallooing half a block behind me, so I ran.
