The Academy of Saint Elizabeth, one story at a time.


“My pet crab named Eugene died yesterday.  He was my best friend.  We had been together for I think three months.  He barely moved so sometimes I would wonder if he was dead- most of the time he wasn’t.  He was a nice crab- he wouldn’t pinch you.  You could pick him up.  He would move at night and it would freak people out.  He was a present from my old teacher.”
