Leave it to Mavis/Night Flight/Wedding Shoes (Storycuts)

Leave it to Mavis/Night Flight/Wedding Shoes (Storycuts)


In 'Leave it to Mavis', Mavis has been helping to make the arrangements for her daughter Julie's wedding - most importantly, booking the village hall for the reception. But when busybody Edith Prosser comes to visit, it seems that the wedding plans may not be running quite as smoothly as everyone had thought...

In 'Night Flight', Ruth can't sleep. Her husband should be in the bed next to her, but he's been out a lot recently, during the small hours of the morning. As Eddie travels home, he can't wait to get into bed - he can barely keep his eyes open. But he finds no one in the house, just a note from Ruth.

In 'Wedding Shoes', Penny is thrilled to be the only bridesmaid at her best friend's wedding. But when she finds the perfect shoes for her outfit, there is only one size left - half a size too small. Surely she can squeeze into them if she tries? Little does she know the events that will unfold because of her shoes...

Part of the Storycuts series, these three short stories were previously published in the collection Summer Promise and Other Stories.
