Short-Story Month 2012: Day 13, Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? by Joyce Carol Oates

"He wagged a finger and laughed and said,
 'Gonna get you, baby'" [. . .]" 

Perhaps the story for Day 13 should be 
Little Red Riding Hood in order to set 
the mood for what might have been 
tomorrow's story, but instead, here's 
what she would call a contemporary 
retelling of that folktale by Joyce Carol Oates, 
"Where Are You Going, Where Have you Been?"

In Video: Joyce Carol Oates talks about
