Z is for:

THE ZENITH by T. Powell Coltrin

Yes, the end is reserved for me and my short story, the last story in Grim Tales from the Ruralhood. THE ZENITH.

First Line: The school bus bounced as it pulled off the highway and onto the gravel road, tossing Mabel O’Connell and her two guests sideways in the seats.

End Line: The house glowed, the song stopped and the light went out.

Congrats to all who completed the A-Z! Thank you to all who visited me! You rock.

HEY come back Sunday for my Sunday Reflection post and Monday because Alex Cavanaugh will be in the house. Yay!
