Wow, where do I begin? There is so much emotion pouring from this, I don't know what to mention first? Fabulous style you have, you have a way of painting vivid pictures of expression in the reader's mind! You don't see that too often, unfortunately. I loved several parts of this, how you used descriptive, even painful words to paint your images....I'm in awe.
"Buried under her blanket of dirt..." Wow.....I like that...only one of my favorite parts! Great stuff!
