  1. LOL, sorry about that Cynthia! In a few stories time I might think about adding a bit of humour! I have just the character in line… This stream of misery needs a bit of happy magic thrown into the mix! 😀

  2. I hadn’t realized that she and Alexand had something like this in common, being blamed for a death of someone that they cared about. In both cases they were only children and it was accidental, but they were held responsible for it nonetheless. You can see why there would be an immediate connection between them, a bond that they wouldn’t necessarily have with anyone else. lovely story!

  3. I’m glad you like it, Chantal as Alexand and Katherine are both really close to my own heart, very essential to the core of a lot of what I write about. You can see underneath to the essential parts of these characters. *Happy dancing* 😀

  4. This is the first piece of yours I’ve read, and it’s WONDERFUL! (Yes, an awful story, with so many lives damaged by accident and by indifference – but you tell it so very very well.) Okay, on to your next story!

    1. Thank you Apurva, I’m glad you liked it enough to read a whole batch of stories. BTW I loved your recent “Mother (Painting Poem,”) it’s absolutely beautiful.

    2. You’re welcome! I really love your artwork, and am glad you’re enjoying reading these stories, it means a lot to me that you’d take this time to do that!

Keep it alive...
