My Deal Me In deck turned up hearts this week, so I got to read one of Alicia Butcher Ehrhardt’s online stories. This one was a re-read, because I’m lonesome for the characters in PRIDE’S CHILDREN: PURGATORY, and this is a prequel.

Well, it’s magnificent. Was, the last time I read it, is this time, will be the next time.
In it, an Irish actor has three encounters with the woman he loved but who left him. He has what he wants most in the world, only to find out that what he thought he wanted second and third were worth more to him. Too late.
Beautifully written. Perfect.
A WRTNG PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: What does your main character think they want most in the world. Are they correct? If not, what do they really want most?
