A story of forgotten identity, simple pleasures and the search for answers.

The House by the Lake

The full story of ‘Concussion’

First written in 2003 and revised in 2012.


‘As she lay motionless in the dark she looked around hoping to catch a glimmer of light to help her take in the surroundings. The air was warm and dry with a slight musty aroma, she could make out the walls and perhaps a ceiling above her, but it hurt her eyes to strain so much. She squeezed them shut, pressing them closed tight. Blinking them open a few times they adjusted to the darkness again and she began to see what was around her. She realised she was not alone.’
