|The Boy In The Yearbook
Two middle-aged women are tormented by a mysterious photograph in their high school yearbook.

No, she knew he hadn’t been. Something deep inside her told her that wasn’t true. He had always been a student at the school. He wasn’t some new kid. So who was he? And why couldn’t they remember him?
