The Stain

62 pages34 minutes


From award-winning novelist Douglas Clegg, comes a short story that begins with the discovery of a strange stain on a t-shirt -- and grows into a threat against a man and his only son. The story is approximately 5600 words in length.

When Jason picks up some souvenirs for his young son, Kyle, he doesn't know that the t-shirt that soon becomes Kyle's favorite brings with it a terrible stain -- of blood.

Or is Kyle being bullied at school? Or is the nanny possibly hurting the boy? Because something caused that stain -- and while Jason and his wife Amy are working hard to generate a wonderful life, something is terribly wrong at home.

This short story was originally published in Cemetery Dance Magazine #67.
