I’ve read several of the stories and like them. I was waiting for a friend at the hospital and it was a bloody perfect short read. And another I was waiting for a late Grandkid drop off. Hal, I love them! I knew they were short stories. And at least 2 of them ended and had me finishing the next chapter in my head. Wasn’t that the point? Character and plot development in a 20 minute read asks the reader to think. Good job and I hope you keep teasing your readers with your short stories.
