“See the blue sky? The clouds?” Lillian asks. Her voice cracks as its breathing thickens, slows. “You’ll be there soon.” This moving little story tells us a lot about its writer. Thank you, Justin. I wish we were neighbors.
So sad, but so beautiful.
'No, she wasn't' was such a breathtakingly thoughtful last line from Joe.
An awesome story, Justin!
Really enjoyed this, thanks so much.
Sweet and compassionate little girl. The trooper with his hat in his hand. Fine study of human nature, Justin.
Such a great story, great detail about the accident.
Another great short story!!
Ya got me, again. Lillian and I are friends.
Thank you for your obvious compassion you placed in the story. It is a sweet story that was seamless to jump into live .
Nice work, Justin- poignant and unexpected. I enjoyed it. Keep up the good work!
“No, she wasn’t." My eyes got misty.
Lillian is going to be quite the grown-up, with this memory behind her. Sweet story.
This was so poignant. The trooper with his hat and the last line just capped it off. So well done.
That's beautiful, mate.
What I liked most and where the story turns for me is the trooper with hat in hand. The closing line is a beaut.
Gulp... a beautiful last line..!
This is incredibly touching. Thank you.
