Short and to the point. So much was conveyed, even habits diet hard. I liked the line "There was no shortage of love but also no shortage of bitching."
It's the little things about ourselves and our partners that infuriate us, and also endear us to each other.When something bigger comes along, the lttle things don't seem quite so important any more.I found this to be a very emotional short story, and hitting much deeper than would appear at first look.Good work.
Hey, are you on Fictionaut? Lots of writers there who share their work like you do here. It's a great resource and I'm sure they'd love to see your work.
This is a very late response to comments posted here way back in April.Lara and Steve, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this one, I really appreciate it! Happy holidays.Tawnysha, I applied to become a member of Fictionaut about a year ago (well before you mentioned it here back in May), and was just finally accepted as a member there last week. Do you post stories on Fictionaut? If so, I look forward to reading your work there! Happy holidays.
