paramedic

rug

It was time for spring cleaning in the house, after the ugly snow that turned to black crusty filth after the first day. We pulled up all the rugs and dragged them outside into the yard, setting up stands to hang them over, and wail at them with the beaters to get all the dust and grime out.

muddy

syndrome

There is a syndrome I’ve heard about that makes you sleepwalk all the time; you fall asleep anywhere and then you get up and move around. Have you ever hear of that?
Narcolepsy, maybe?
No, it’s more than that.
Somnambulism, then.
No, not that either.

weave

These were the stories he told everyday, the ones he would weave from talking to people, by listening in the background, by following up and not letting go. The stories revealed and challenged and accused and comforted.

latch

She slipped the latch on the pantry door, glancing behind to check that no one was watching. It wasn’t an awful secret, just her own and no one else’s. How had it come to this?

mysterious

“It was mysterious, I tell you. One second she was there, talking to me and then . . . ”

“What? What happened?”

“I turned, even as she was still talking, and she had vanished.”

stability

“Look, I want stability, not some crazy nomadic life.”

She was talking to his back as he rolled a pair of wool socks to stuff into his rucksack.
