I enjoyed your story and was left wondering what happened next. Thanks.
Oh nicely done and nicely told. This was a story I kind of expect to see in a magazine. It held my attention, it was well-written, and I loved the ending! Thanks.

God bless~
You gave me a lesson here: How to get a complete story, including main points of good writing, within our word limit." I thought it was berry, berry good.Willl I get a bill?
This is one of those stories that just tug at the heart. You did a nice job of showing the pain the MC and Shannon endured together. The ending was slightly predictable but still left me with a warm, feel-good feeling.
I really enjoyed this and I, too, felt a tug at the heart. I thought the story flowed easily and, since i kept picturing Jack as this big burly kind of manly man, I enjoyed this look into a softer side of him. I did find myself wondering how many years it had been since he'd seen Shannon - guess I was trying to place the depth of his longing for her.

Nice writing here. Well done!
Very nicely written. I enjoyed the story and can almost taste the jam.
Such a lovely story. It's amazing how a simple thing like the taste of strawberries bring on wonderful memories. Well written. Good job!
A lovely story I enjoyed reading. The emotions expressed by the characters came through nicely. An excellent piece!
Congratulations for ranking 8th in your level!
Loved the sense of time warp. Back to childhood and through adolescent romance - to suddenly find the years peeled back!
Great close; great writing.
I was going to say berry good, but since someone beat me to it, my endorsement must remain fruitless.
