This episode of the Drabblecast presents “Water Spots,” by Rebecca Gomezrueda, a troubling tale of murk, darkness, and the complexity of the human experience. Is it something in the water?
Consider yourself warned.
“They found your brother…”
Her mother leaves the sentence unfinished, and she wants to tell her not to go on. He can be anywhere, in the water, in the fire, and in the end there’s little difference between burnt bones and waterlogged bones.
“Did you hear me? I said they found your brother.”
“Mhm.” So she’d have his bones. What did she want with them?
“Water Spots” is printed in full below the player. Enjoy!
