: A DD? I'm floored! Thank you so much to ^Beccalicious
for featuring and *ShadowedAcolyte
for suggesting! And thank you to everyone who has commented and faved so far.
It means a lot to me!
And for those of you who are worried - yes, my mom survived. (I wrote this a couple years ago.) She's doing much better now! Thanks for your concern. Edit
: Fixed the second paragraph - eliminated the repetition and tried to make the transition smoother.
True story. Obviously this has some personal content in it, so please be gentle around that.
It struck me as an odd and sad coincidence that the dog my family shared died exactly one year to the day after my mom tried to. He was a really good dog, and we miss him.
I wanted a distant tone, and for the emotional disconnect between the "narrator" and the events to be obvious. Did that work?
Comments/critiques/questions/favorites/etc are always greatly appreciated.
