Penny, this was another amazing story. The first three paragraphs immediately caught my attention and drew me into the story. All the detail in those paragraphs created a powerful image in my mind. Although it must have been difficult for them to return home, in the end I think they made the right decision. I think that being around familiar things and in the place where many happy memories were also made would be a comfort. I was really glad to see Mimi and Stanley open up to each other, they really needed to do that to begin to heal. I really like how Mimi’s dream of Bonnie at the end provided closure for her and how at the end of the dream she turned to Stanley instead of ‘running’ from him.

Author's Response:

Thank you Skyrose!

I was really interested in exploring this incredibly difficult situation. I kept thinking about how challenging it would be for them to keep living in their house or living somewhere away from everything familiar to them. I thought that they'd eventually decide to go back, because as you said, their happy memories are there and though it would be incredibly painful, they would have to face what happened there. I think it's hard for Mimi to turn to someone else when she's faced with a situation like this, but she's been learning how to do this since she's known Stanley.

Thanks again for reading and commenting!
