Reviews for No Goodbyes
sirona7 chapter 1 . 2/9/2006
The first paragraph sets the scene so well-I love how Chase makes notes of the house, once full of life, is now cast in a dying light. Everything about the second paragraph works beautifully for me except the digression contrasting his parent's eyes in the third sentence. (While it is a lovely contrast between the mother and father, for me, it's an unwelcome pause in the building realization of this emotional defining moment.) I love your use of contrast in the final couple of sentences though. How well you've captured the overwhelming sadness of the abandoned child contrasted with the toughness of the child who climbs the dark stairs to handle whatever awaits. Thank you.

Hi there, This is a very clever little piece. It's nice to see somene focus on Chase (the wombat) :P

Great story, ifonly it could have been long
