Memories can save us. They can also drown us. What would you do?


Left me wanting more ... like when you finish the last page of that book you love and you never wanted it to end and for a short story to be able to leave you with that same feeling, pretty powerful writing. Halcyon hunter can't wait to read more of your work.

Nice twist, I felt all the emotions of a novel packed into one page. My kinda story!

I was left wondering what was going on then thought oh yes I want a sandwich. Sandwich please!

The ability to bring a reader into a story, feeling all that the writer describes as opposed to merely being an observer on the sidelines, is a talent. Each sentence is original, no common or predictable phrases here. I was completely drawn in and, during that moment, could feel the mother's anguish and her husband's sad frustration. Well done!

Thank you. I wonder if there is a longer story in there and this is just a tiny snapshot.

This is how to convey emotion. I found myself transported into a moment full of love, loss and sadness. A wonderfully descriptive moment. I want more. Thank you HuntingHalcyon for sharing this.
