Beautifully written. I liked how you wove the butterfly throughout the piece.
Your opening two paragraphs were perfect. A beautifully written piece with an unexpected but entirely satisfactory conflict
This poetic prose story is an absolute favorite of mine this week--perfect.
Sometimes it is hard to get a strong message into a sweet story...but you did it wonderfully.
True, we often "settle" for Plan B.
Love is willing to close the door gently on Plan A and embrace Plan B. You showed this in this heart-filled story.

When one dream dies....God is faithful to birth a new is our part to embrace the new dream...that is what this story spoke to me. I enjoyed reading it and I was delighted to see the butterfly set free.
True-to-life story woven into this beautifully written entry. Excellent!
So very well done! I'm glad that she didn't just get up and walk away. Kudos to him for finding such a gem. ^_^ Good story!
I was so happy to see you rise so high with this beautiful story! Congratulations.
Congratulations on your second place level ranking, and your second place Editor's Choice award. Your story was very touching...a tribute to true love that overcomes even changes in expectations. Thanks for sharing such a sweet story.
Congrats, Loren! Well done!!!
Gorgeous and lyrical. Stunning. Congratulations, Loren.
Splendidly told! Congratulations on a well-deserved 2nd (Were I a judge I'd give you 1st). The first paragraph and a bit of the second left no hint as to how the story would unfold. But it gave a very romantic setting for the sad news the young man had to give to his lover...How very touching! I'm glad the young man freed the butterfly. And I am so happy that their love overcame the disappointment life through at them. They certainly entered into ADULTHOOD with and ADULT attitude...Blessings!...Helen
Congratulations, Loren!


What a joy and pleasure to read your wonderful writing.
