Women are missing
"Falling All to Pieces" by shaffer40



The news says women are disappearing. I encounter a woman in my yard, reaching out to me, silently. Her horror-stricken face falls, then her hands, arms, and the rest of her, disintegrating into a puddle on the ground. I hear footsteps behind me, then feel a hand on my shoulder.

Author Notes
My stories and articles have appeared in various literary journals--Phoebe, Serving House, and The Pedestal, as well as newspapers and Woman's World magazine. I authored Murder Gone Cold, a book about the 1957 unsolved murders of two Chicago sisters (2006). I am retired and live in Chicago.
