I could feel myself thinking Oh she has to be able to smell lilacs again. You did a great job with building the suspense. I could smell my favorite fragrance as you described the lilacs. I did notice a tiny typo when she was talking about the teachers- it should be they're instead of their. But I smiled at the play on words at the end and in the title.

We can take our sense of smell for granted, never realizing how important it is until we experience its loss. I almost wrote on your topic, but I'm glad I didn't, because yours came with a memorable story.

My grandmother always grew lilacs by her front door. The smell greeted us when we arrived and bade us farewell when we left. I enjoyed your story and glad your mc was able to once again enjoy the smell of lilacs.
