CCC219: Charlie’s Aunt

Charlie sat on his favourite seat, high on Cannon Hill. Folks might have thought he was gazing out to sea. They might have thought – with how often he was there – that he was waiting for something or someone.

In a way he was, but not for a ship as the townsfolk might have thought. He was waiting for his aunt, or rather her ghost.

A circus performer, she had died when the cannon from which she was supposed to be launched misfired and a fault in the structure caused an explosion.
