Not sure if this is a true story. If not, you did a good job of making the characters
real. Love the message, and I salute your great ending.
This was a nice story. I could easily picture the wise Annie and the frightened Joan. Nice job from beginning to end.
I definitely identified with Joan--I'm very much like that.

I thought the ending was just a tad abrupt--would someone so shy really change so suddenly and completely, without working up to it?

Ann was a wonderful character, and I've been blessed to know people like her.
I did like this very much. I believe you pictured many people who shy away from personal conversations for much the same reason as Joan.
Congratulations for placing 6th in your level!
