Wish of a Highlander – Katy Baker

Ava Hall put on her best smile. “Fifteen for the necklace. And there’s a matching set of earrings to go with it. Twenty-five for both. Can’t say fairer than that, can I? Authentic 1940s style. It’s very much back in fashion.” The blonde-haired woman who’d been perusing Ava’s stall pursed her lips, considering. “Actually, I […]

Path of a Highlander – Katy Baker

Sienna Campbell pulled the buckle on the metal brace one notch tighter and then looked down at her patient. “There. That should do it. Ready to try again?” Miles Turner nodded, his curly locks falling around his face, and gave her his bravest smile. “Aye. Ready.” Sienna smiled at him and patted the nine-year-old on […]

Time of a Highlander – Katy Baker

Georgina Smyth wiped her hand across her brow. It came back covered in stone dust. Despite her overalls, the dust managed to get everywhere.

Spirit of a Highlander – Katy Baker

The construction site—a wide swathe of cleared ground filled with equipment and bags of sand and grit—ran all the way down to where the river lapped lazily at the shore. Above her reared the city’s railway bridge, all thick girders and […]

Fate of a Highlander – Katy Baker

Honestly, Doc,” Mr Roberts said with a wide-eyed look of innocence. “I dunno why it’s got worse. I did everything you told me.” Eleanor Stevenson glanced at the red, swollen foot and sighed. Straightening from where she knelt by Mr Roberts, she pulled off her latex gloves and took a seat behind the desk, resting […]

Destiny of a Highlander – Katy Baker

Breanne Martin set down her tools and stretched her arms over her head. She let out a long sigh and wriggled her shoulders, trying to work the kinks out of her neck. On the worktable in front of her sat the museum’s latest conservation piece, defying all her attempts to get it ready for tomorrow’s […]

Call of a Highlander – Katy Baker

The coffee shop was busy this morning. As Bethany Carter worked feverishly at the coffee machine, making the usual latte for Mr Penrose, she wiped her sweaty brow with a handkerchief and drew a deep breath.
