Short Story Press Presents Salvaged Quietude by Ruth Pettite
When an old girlfriend from the past comes back into his life he finds that time is not of the essence. She is lost, upset, and mute. And to top it off, she is definitely not the girl she once was. Her loud political ways from college are gone, leaving her a frail and extremely timid woman with extreme mental issues.
