The Cabin, the Flame, and Angie
The cabin in the woods had been abandoned for years, but one night, a candle burned in the window. Randy remembered that cabin and that candle. The cabin was made of old, random sized logs that are showing their age. Angie would light a candle in the right front window when she was free to meet him. He would go to their place in the woods and wait for her. He loved Angie. But he had failed to protect her. The past came rushing back to him as he stood watching the flame.
