The short story “Bone Deep” by Martin Malone was published in 2018. The short story is about a family, who has troubles. The difficulties in the family are told through the main character Ian.
It begins with the 13-year-old narrator, Ian, who mentions the discovery of a woman’s skeleton inside a well at the Market Square.
Two of Ian's siblings, Terry and Marcus, were in a car accident in which Marcus was unfortunately killed and Terry was paralyzed.
The siblings blame their father for the car accident and especially the sister Ann does. That is why Ann takes care of Terry. This has caused the family not to talk to each other, which has led to the mother not wanting to be home.
