Just Desserts

Here is my story for this week's Three Word Wednesday prompt. We're also on the letter J for the A to Z blogging Challenge.


Despite the draft coming in around all the windows and doors, Jason had never felt such serenity in a place before. Now he understood why his mother kept telling him he should visit the lake house. He only wished he’d done it sooner and brought her with him before her death.


After all, if it took him this long to locate, and his family had been coming here for years, it would have taken the authorities even longer, giving him more time to form a get-away plan.

The way things were now, it might be the lake house was his resting place and his mother would have the last laugh anyway.
