Flour Baby by LA Craig

Episode 2 of 3

Rosey can't grasp why her neighbour's baby gives her the willies, until her own buried trauma comes to light. Read by Liz White.

When the couple across the street bring home their new baby, nosy neighbour Rosey is disturbed by its appearance.

But in telling her story - a story full of hardship and humour - Rosey gives away more than she perhaps intended, and finds herself coming face to face with her own buried trauma.

LA Craig's short story selected from thousands of entries for the BBC Opening Lines 2015 initiative, our annual open submission window for writers new to radio.
