“The Stained Veil”: A short story, The Commonwealth Writers Foundation, addastories.org
“The village sat unassumingly on the edge of endless rows of flowering cane, but hidden in its tall quiet, it contained well too much drama for the good of its inhabitants. Too much story, coiled like snakes in the cane. Her father used to say in rounded and swaying dialect, while observing his girls in some fracas, some private disagreement that had embroiled them: Ayu get too much o’ story wid ayu self.
That’s what it was like in Lovely Lass.”
