Your story is very vivid. It explained to me a relationship I knew very little about. I liked the link between spoken words and 'Little Women' I t explains so well. Thank you.



Author's Response: Thank you, Scrabble. I have no idea why Little Women jumped into my mind when contemplating their relationship, but I'm always plreased to find inspiration.
