He was as reliable as a metronome, coming in with neatly packaged brown paper parcels for various grandsons and granddaughters scattered around the globe, the address labels bearing his handsome script. He was a widower, lived on his own, and Danae could never remember seeing him with.
Below Willow Street lay the sweep of Avalon Bay with its horseshoe-shaped sandy beach, which had been drawing seaside-loving holidaymakers to the area for many years. Avalon was a resort town with a population of about five thousand at most during the winter, swelling to at least three times that figure in summer.
On Willow Street, another of the ancient willows had sheared from its roots overnight, like a piece of sculpture broken by a hurricane. Danae wished someone from the council would move it, put it out of its pain. She didn’t know why, but she felt these beautiful trees could feel pain like humans could. The magnolias in her garden appeared to have curled in on themselves, no bud ready to unfurl, and there was no scent of honey in the air at night from the honeysuckle, only the icy chill of winter approaching.
