WOW. This is definitely one of the best pieces I've ever read on Figment. The writing is beautiful, the telling of the story done masterfully (bravo on the verse -- I am in awe). It is incredible that you manage to bring so much life to the characters in so few words, which makes the tragedy all the heavier on the readers. WOW. My favorite lines: "you know she hasn't been religious/in years?" and "tell the girls that crying will make deserts of them too soon". The characters' voices were unbelievably and incredibly developed for this short piece -- again bravo. This work is great. Just…WOW.

I loved the way you used parentheses. A beautiful collection. Chapter 8 was locked, though. Is that on purpose?

All aboard the feels train to Crying-in-your-bedville. That is some incredibly deep and sad stuff.

So sad! You both have such great voices, you should write more stories together! Thank you!
