  1. Wow, you deliver your killer punch in the last sentence. What a great flash fiction story, Terveen. Your writing always gets to me. Didn’t see that one coming. So sad, so human, life in all its facets – your forte.

    • Thank you so much, Britta. Your generous comments always make me feel like I’m floating on cloud 9. And what you don’t see coming often affects you the most. It could be good or bad. Ah! The bliss of not knowing. Take care! 🙂

  2. Strokes so often do the opposite: they take the youthfulness out of a person. What a unique yet equally heartbreaking position these characters found themselves in. Expertly penned, as always!

    • Thank you so much. Your wonderful comments are like those sweet, colorful sprinkles on a cupcake without which the flavor would lose its remarkableness. I agree, heartbreaks are so difficult and often lives are wasted in recovering from them. 🙂

  3. How interesting now this is the kind of story I hope to write some day. I can just imagine what happened to that little girl. Well done Terveen, will there be a part 2? Hugs, Joni

    • Thanks so much, Joni. I appreciate all the love and encouragement you spare for me and also for the other writers whose works you read. You are a positive force of nature and are thus cherished and unstoppable. My prayers are always with you and Part 2 seems like a good idea. Take care and lots of love. 🙂

  4. It is amazing how fleshed out your characters always are! This is no small feat considering the format. 😮Happy to have read another brilliant story from you.😊

  5. A wonderfully sad write, Terveen. Your writing is always so beautiful. Happy Sunday, my friend.

    • Thank you so much, Jeff. I appreciate you and your warm support. Hope you had a great start to your week. 🙂
