This is very nearly a true story.‭ ‬Nearly but not quite.‭ ‬

The evening at the Tinner’s Arms,‭ ‬the loose chain and the sticking clutch‭ ‬-‭ ‬all that is true.‭

The cottage,‭ ‬as well,‭ ‬that’s also true,‭ ‬I think.‭ ‬

I’ve only made the last bit of the story up‭ ‬-‭ ‬and there I think I had too.‭

‬You see,‭ ‬some obsessions are just too dangerous to pursue.

The Storm

The West Cornwall moors are a dangerous place to be when the mists come down and the storm clouds gather.‭‭

The narrows lanes disappear into the murky darkness leaving the lone traveller lost and alone.‭ ‬There are no people here when the mists come down,‭ ‬there is no life when the storm clouds brew.‭ ‬Just the mist and the hint of rain on the slowly gusting wind.‭‭

I had been riding here for years but had always taken care and this was the first time that I had been caught out in a storm.‭‭
