The Landfill

The Landfill - Kevin Hopson

Billy is a senior in high school.  A year ago, almost to the day, his sister died.  A short time later, so did his mom.  Now it's just him and his dad - and his dad has plans for the one year anniversary of his sister's death.  At the same time, on the way home from school with his friend, he notices a giant hill of sand and because curious.  One night they decide to go investigate - which only leads to more questions.  The two twists at the end - wow - plus an ending I could have only hoped for from a short story, but never expected.  Well done, Kevin, well done.
