I am becoming a fan of your style of writing. The brevity, the subtlety and the message are all there, and they make quite an impact. This could very well have been a scene in a big ticket Hollywood romcom; it's so potent. Keep writing! Best regards, Pau.

This was awesome! I especially liked the part about Maine (that's where I live)! I really liked this short story because at the end we are left wanting more. You don't necessarily leave us hanging not knowing what's going to happen, yet you do. It was nice and this story just made me happy on its own.

The way you wrote this was great, I was sucked in. At first I'll admit I looked at your story due to your name, as you have my first and last initials and middle name. I loved how you made Micah stand up to Shirley. I can see her now... That dumb b(Word) look of disappoint and disgust. It's like you slapped her in the face. It was great, what a great way to start a friendship. Oh! I am from Maine, I love to see stories placed where I am from. I am from New Hampshire and Maine and I feel like no one writes story with setting from there. So in a way I was pulled to your story because I had a personal connection and that is great to do and sometimes hard. So please keep writing and I'd love to see more of this story. Good Writing, Joy
