The town’s wood water pipes were frozen solid for six weeks, even the fire station was without water. However Charlie was happy for the snow was knee deep, and the lake was ice bound, the sledging would be great. Charlie was just about to set off with his mates, when his father called him into the kitchen. Sorry Charlie but I need your sledge today to deliver the mail, sorry old chap. Charlie shouted that he would never be a postman. Later Charlie would cry, as two of his friends drowned when their sledge broken through the ice.

  1. Very good, Michael. No worries about the guilt angle, get as much as you can out of it.

    The structure was superb! Characters were drawn and the end intriguing. Wonderful!

  2. It is lucky for Charlie that his sledge was needed, but whatba tragedy for his friends, and for Charlie – dealing with the loss of his friends.
