As a fireman in a small town, Chad’s life is laid back, easy going. The worst problem he has is tolerating Jerry, his so-called friend, who sees himself as a gift to women. He's a player and Chad has a difficult time dealing with Jerry's attitude. Chad’s life is destined to become much less peaceful and serene when Heather appears in town. From the very first time they meet, he is strongly attracted to her. To his consternation, Jerry imposes himself between them and tells lies about Chad in order to win Heather’s favor.
Jerry vanishes, as does Heather. Then one day on the way home from work, Chad encounters her again. Having discovered Jerry’s lies, she invites Chad to join her for dinner. Cheerfully, Chad accepts. With Jerry out of the picture it'll be just the two of them . . . but things are about to get very interesting for Chad.
Chad leads a peaceful life as a fireman in a small town. Heather’s arrival is about to change his life forever. The Witch and the Squirrels, a short story by G. E. Stills.
