DEATH RITES



ONE


North Shore, Hawaii


THE WALKWAY BETWEEN the vendor stalls was packed with tourists and locals. Fresh pineapple, bread, organic meats and cheeses, soap, lawn ornaments, t-shirts; you name it, it was offered here. Being around people was like handing a lifeline to a drowning woman. I hadn't realized how starved for conversation I'd been. I suppose talking back to the television the night before should have given me an idea.

I filled my bag with fresh greens, a couple of bars of soap and some banana bread. The dark clouds building in the distance and uptick in humidity signaled one of the North Shore's infamous winter squalls was about to unleash its fury, so I reluctantly headed for my scooter. I had just locked my purchases in one of the side compartments when I felt the skin on the back of my neck crawl. I turned, but saw no one.
