really liked it
bookshelves: shortstories
Read in August, 2009

I can't help it, but I loved this short story because the protagonist got what was coming to her. That's what happens when you are ungrateful, prideful, and went more than you can afford. Just desserts as the say...

I never used to enjoy short stories, because well, they are short. Once you get into them they're over, but I'm finding great pleasure in reading them. I think it takes great skill to write short stories, because you have to work harder to catch the attention of the reader, because you don't have countless pages to intrigue.
