Close to Home
With their vacation coming to an end, Clyde and his family are nearly home. Deciding to take a scenic shortcut would turn out to be much more than just a mistake.
After a sudden rainstorm, their vehicle becomes stuck on the road that has become little more than a path. Forced to walk for help, Clyde leaves his family behind, promising to return.
Clyde encounters three men. Revealing that he's a doctor, the men ask for his help. Agreeing to help them in exchange for a tow, Clyde walks with the men to their homes, which are nothing more than shacks built deep in the forest.
In spite of his efforts, Clyde fails to save the sick woman.
Blamed for her death by her husband, Clyde is about to realize that sometimes justice is macabre.
*This is the second short story in the Minutes to Death series.
