They thought I must have hit my head and lost my memory – or worse, lost my head itself. In their murmurs I thought I discerned the word 'hysteria'. When I was in school we learned hysteria and epilepsy together. We knew the latter from movies, but what was hysteria? Someone said hysteria was excessive laughter so we had a lot of fun with that word. If ever anyone laughed we accused them of suffering from hysteria and then we laughed hysterically too. I never forgot the word, though at the moment that was not my problem. Perhaps no one had uttered that word, it might have been my memory playing tricks as usual.
FUMES is a collection of stories about ordinary people who experience one extraordinary day in their lives, and how that defines them, or alters them. And how they deal with their fears, mistakes, betrayal, revenge, love and, most importantly, hope.

A young woman who stares into the face of love and makes a difficult decision...

A wise person once said, "Coincidences do happen, that's why they have a name."
Sometimes these coincidences stop us on our tracks and make us wonder, “Was that really just a coincidence – or did the hand of Destiny strike ever so gently?” We call them ‘eerie’ or ‘uncanny’, or ‘a miracle’ or ‘a stroke of luck’ or ‘fate’.
“Shadows of the Past” takes you to the crossroads where coincidence meets luck, miracle meets destiny, on the thin line between the strange and the eerie. Maybe those incidents are indeed mere coincidences, and there is nothing inexplicable about them. I leave you to judge.
