    Brrrrr..... : )

    In only nine pages, the author gives you a great description of the anticipation of going skating. I swear I could feel the bitter cold of the sunny day. Nice deja vu ending. Very good quick read.

    This is a subtle, romantic short story which left me wanting to see more, and wishing that it didn't end. Luxuriously paced, vivid, and easy to read.

    What's the point?

    I didn't see the point in this story. Why go through the trouble when it's just a simple "story", and I really would says it's less than a story. More like a short part of a story.
