    Morgen – Thanks for hosting Jane again. 🙂

    Jane – I love this story! It makes me wonder what the writer is like and what prompted the letter. I can almost see another story about the same letter, told from the perspective of the person who wrote it. What a great piece of flash fiction – thanks.

      Margot, thanks so much for being the first to read and like this story. It is intriguing….gets the imagination fired up. Perhaps I shall get round to writing just that…another perspective…I’ll let you know if I do. Thanks so much for dropping in, much appreciated. 🙂

        Hello ladies. Thank you for writing, reading and enjoying. 🙂 Jane is most definitely my most prolific short story author.

        Morgen how kind of you to say so….I enjoy contributing here and am so happy when people pop in and read what I have written and I hope they stay and browse and find other stories and writers to follow. Every little helps…appreciated Morgen, no end. 🙂

    I read this a while ago and have now enjoyed it a second time around. I do like stories about the past and how we are never free of it. Good story.

      Jane, glad you enjoyed it a second time round. The past is a great place for inspiration and ideas….many thanks for popping in again and bothering to read again. Much appreciated. 🙂

    And! AND??? Please continue the story. Is it a child given up a birth? A long-lost sibling? I’m no tenterhooks here, great stuff!

      Ah! So glad it has got you fired up Nicky….I hoped it would. I am considering your suggestion, Margot made a similar request; from the writer’s perspective possibly. It is all time, or rather, lack of it at the moment. but…I may well get round to it at some point. Thanks so much for dropping in to read it. I have two Pod-casts on Sunday evening via Morgen, so do pop back then.

    It is such amazing how tou gently described this woman’s feelings, her anguish above all.
    Your words have the power to make the reader aware about the secret she has barely hidden to herself too. The matter is not the secret itself but the emotional bond it does generate.
    What about a sequel?

      Elisa, thanks so much for popping in and reading this…glad you like it. I shall have to think about a prequel/sequel or whatever….time is the main problem. However, so happy you liked it and if I don’t catch you before, have a wonderful time in London. 🙂

    I loved the use of the the ‘blue ghost beckoning her’. Enjoyed this Jane, very much

      Lesley, apologies for not replying sooner. Computer meltdown for a few weeks and have only just got a new one and trying to get my head around Windows 8! Thanks for your lovely comment. So happy you enjoyed this story, appreciate you reading it. Under Cover went live with Morgen on 20th so let me know what you think of that if you are of a mind to pop in. This deals with a tough topic so be warned. 🙂


We'd love you to leave a comment, thank you!
