The spoils of war

My story, Broken Things, is about the spoils of war and how no one should suffer its consequences. I am grateful to Pencilled In Magazine for choosing to publish it in its inaugural issue.

Only a few copies of Pencilled In Magazine Issue 1 are available HERE.

Broken Things: In the aftermath of World War II and amid the devastation of the vast Philippines archipelago, the very young Robérto Rodrígo de Montáño and his family have become indirect casualties of war. Refusing to play victim to the atrocities, he sets out to regain old familial playgrounds, armed only with the naivety of youth, the flavour of old memories in his tongue and a steely determination to reclaim his home from the clutches of war. He sets out stealthily towards the ruins of Manila after the city’s liberation from the Japanese Imperial Army, unwittingly bringing himself and his two younger siblings, Miguelíto and Isabélla, across the threshold where reality gives way to the loss of innocence and plants the seed of brokenness that is likely to stay within themselves for the rest of their lives. Broken Things is a fictional but poignant hop to a time when young minds and pure but fragile souls were shattered by the unfortunate consequences of man’s inherent need to conquer and destroy.
