"Nah. You didn’t fall to your death. I jumped after you with a parachute." August 24th


Summary:

“So… I’m dead?”

“Yupp,”

“Which dead is this?” She asked looking around wearily, eyes roaming in the hazy darkness. He raised an eyebrow in question. She shrugged listlessly, hands digging into her mint green scrub pants. “You know. Is it Christmas Carol? Or I’m a restless soul that needs to realize I’m ready to go?”

“That all depends,” He smiled slowly, an almost teasing laugh hissing out from between his teeth as he spoke.

“On what?” She looked at him, eyes wide in confusion.

“You,”

I agree!

And that's another question of mine as well. :)

I never knew that someone replied to my comment! Anyway, the title just doesn't go with the plot. The setting, yes. Just not the plot. I just came with one.

Death and all his friends. Like the Coldplay album. By the way, LOVE Coldplay! What about you?:)

well... I don't have a new title, but the reason the current one isn't so great is that it doesn't catch your attention. When you see it, it's a bit long and hard to focus on... like, if it was shorter and sweeter, it might be better...

LOVE the twist at the end...

How come Kasey didn't recognise her own husband?

Do you have any suggestions as to what you would name it and why do you not like the title?

Wait, so Jo from the afterlife is Kasey's husband in this life? So why is he in the afterlife? Did he died? Also, it needs a better title.

I guess I'm a bit confused at what happened towards the end... maybe make it a tad more clear for slow people like me? :)

It didn't offend them, you're just not supposed to do it.  They're looking for books to publish here, and this isn't a book.  What the rest of us do when it's too long is split it into two or three parts.

Last time I tried to post it under an original piece of fiction, it said it was too long. So the book/novel section was the only place I could post it. I'm sorry you didn't like it and that putting it in the book/novel section offended you. :(

I actually really enjoyed  this piece! I really liked your interpretation of limbo. And I liked the message of learning how to forgive yourself. I think that's a message that we all need to remember sometimes. Thanks for sharing your writing, and keep up the good work! =)
