This was also my first exposure to flash fiction. I didn't know what to expect, but these vignettes were great: an almost voyeuristic experience for the reader, who witnesses a very satisfying snippet from a stranger's life. Fun!

This is the first bit of micro fiction I've had the pleasure of reading. I found it very enjoyable. These stories allowed my mind to wonder about the context from which they came and where they were ultimately heading. To me, that is the art of storytelling, just giving a snapshot and leaving the reader to ponder what happens next. Thank you.
