She was deciphering the cryptograms. As if she knew who had said.
What she wanted to hear.

She was reading his mind. Afraid to answer him.

your recent ones have an edge of violence about them to me - or the feeling that a catastrophe is looming. it's something about the peacefulness, but suspicion in the writing.

that's how I see it anyway - and once you've posted it it's mine or whoever else reads it. hope my read was your write
