I loved this story! Beautiful, moving, vivid descriptions of the two diversely misfit girls and their contrasting, mutual empathy for each other. I could really indentify with this story and its message, having been a misfit in school myself (one more like Marilyn).

Am puzzled...Is the other girl named Wanda or Wendy? Both names are used in the story.

I also loved the repeated phrase "and the only sound was the rubbing of the wheels..." That haunted me and really fit the mood of the story. Great job!

This is indeed a moving piece of writing. Great job, and fodder for a whole lot of thought.
This is a great story of both encouragement and to get people off there butt. Well done!
