55 Flash Fiction Friday #46: Chapter 38 - Muskarati


Some stories are the same in any language.
She felt strange, having this conversation was bringing on a sensation she vaguely recognized, but could not identify. It was pleasing enough, but somehow alien. And that strangeness made it somewhat unsettling. It was almost a full minute more before she finally realized she was smiling for the first time in far too many years.

Notes:
Muskarati: She smiles

I am amazed at how much you can get into 55 words. All of this and a language lesson. Wow!

O well! I guess it would appear a strange sensation if you smiled after a long time.... Good for her! :)

Slowly breaking down strongly built defenses, she's getting there. One smile must surely lead to another, then another...hopefully happiness!
