All Mike Hanson wants is a relaxing family vacation in the mountains of New Mexico; time away from his stressful Midland, Texas career and a chance to refocus on family.

Mike's entire life changes instantly as he and other survivors have to run and keep running to survive. Its no accident. He is targeted to be eliminated.
LITERARY ROMANCE -
Aged Henry Lassiter knows well the temporal nature of life because his has ended.
In that moment between life and death, a time when the mind struggles to maintain contact with the physical world as forces from the spiritual realm tug, Henry sees clearly the reason for the overwhelming desire to reach back through the veil - to hold onto the world he's known for seventy-six years-Josephine; his sweet Jojo.
In seemingly the blink of an eye, Henry and Jojo play together as children in the old neighborhood, move beyond the years of prepubescent games to teenage courtship and then to the stormy years of young marriage.
As the arc of life tilts to the downhill side, problems of a different sort test them. It's in these times that the rhythm of life leads to the ultimate dance - of love.
A short story from our Candlelight line.
