Wow, what an intriguing story, @iamraincrystal. I am absolutely smitten by it, even though I have read it twice and can't quite get my mind around what is happening. I am wishing for a few more details. Who are Betty and Linny to one another? Why does Linny tell here there will be no next time? Which of the things that happen in this story are in the present and which in the past?
Even though I'm not clear on all the details, I do love it. It is rich with detail and emotion and I was carried away by the storytelling.
