Melissa says: Was not expecting the end...I snorted water out my nose. Mermaides and shape shifters? Love it.

Melissa says: Spy mystery, realistic, would liked a full length seems more like a blurb. :D

Melissa says: 1 complete story, well written, made me want more. Loved how the kids are the legacy.
My companion replied, “That’s right, body; it’s only a shell now.”
“It’s our only way out,” I heard one mourner say.
I glanced over but I didn’t recognize them. As my companion and I too the only empty seats left in the very large room.
The service began and I saw many touch their eyes with tissues as they spoke of virtues and giving and selflessness. I saw my daughter and my sons choke back tears to tell of deeds and words of the deceased feeling very remote from all of it.
“A very large turnout wouldn’t you say?”
“Yes, frankly I’m surprised,” I stated.
“Did I really touch that many people?”
“You did. You are humble, too humble for all you did in your lifetime.", and then pointing to my children he continued, “They are your legacy, the good you did will now multiply tenfold. Now it’s time to go.”
We flew through the skies in rapid time reaching the heavenly gates and I breathed a sigh of relief as St. Peter opened the gates saying “Per your request you’re here a half an hour before the devil knows your dead.”
I was welcomed with open arms and I felt happier than I’d ever been. I breathed a sigh of relief and instantly the self-doubt that had followed me all my life disappeared. Now I could truly live.
