The suitcase was packed. The closet was empty. She took one last look in the mirror, her reflection staring back at her in disbelief. What now?

    1. Dear Lisa, yes of course all is well! This is flash fiction, a new writing genre I’m trying out. It’s like a very short story with a twist! Thank you for your concern, but no worries, it’s fiction! 😊 xo
