The Cord: A Story from the collection, I Am Heathcliff
A story from Alison Case to stir the heart and awaken vital conversations about love.
Heathcliff escapes to a cave in the moors. Cold and shivering from the rain he tries to metabolise what he has just overheard, that Cathy is to marry. He feels their connection like a cord, and as she moves away he endures the stretch of it.
