I found myself talking to her as if she was someone I had known since childhood. And, I reminded myself, she wasn't. I had only met her that evening. She still had ink stains on her hands.

  1. I've heard so many wonderful things about this author but I haven't read any of his books yet. This sounds like a story I'd enjoy.
    My Tuesday post features SIX STRINGS.

  4. I like the sentiment of knowing someone you only just met, its great when you meet people who give you that feeling. I wonder about the ink stains though, that makes me question whether this is a real or fictional person (because the ink could suggest the speaker just wrote this person into existence). Great teaser!

    Here are Mine.

  7. I wonder about the ink stains. Is that a bad sign? I hope not since I frequently have ink stains.
