  1. Ha! Nice. I’m trying to think of what film it might be, in which the handsome love interest’s face is still visible at the end. Not Titanic. I imagine when I was younger I probably had a similar reaction to the death of Vasquez in Aliens. 😀

Hi Esther – I was reading your book of short stories ‘The Siege’ in a hospital outpatients this afternoon (not me, just the driver, my youngest daughter getting a dodgy shoulder sorted) and had noted how you so often come up with an unexpected ending … just as you have here with ‘Dead’ … as already said ‘Ha! Nice.’ Eric.
