I am so happy to see this over her as well, Himring- just gives me another excuse to read it. I love the way you capture that moment before declaration/ consumation. That heady excitement 'their world seemed to gain depth, sing in subtler shades of colour. It was even better when Findekano discovered he could answer.'
And the moment everything changed- and they are plunged into the fate that awaits them- too tragic. Beautifully written. As always.
Oh this is a lovely drabble. Thanks for posting it here. I haven't had time to read or participate in B2MeM but do escape to read and post stuff here. Such a lovely exchange about their friendship and that last sentence so beautifully captured that divide! I love it!
