New Year, New Life

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 04/01/2013

She would not forget the smell of the old wooden box. She felt sure of that. A firework exploded in the night sky, briefly illuminating the box as she peered into it for the last time. Revolver. Wedding ring. A carefully-chosen selection of letters and photographs. Her eyes lingered on the photograph of her family, then she placed it face-down in the box. Through the walls she could hear her new neighbours drunkenly singing 'Auld Lang Syne'. She took a deep breath then closed the lid on her past and her old life. Happy New Year! Happy new life?
