Krista and Matt have had a confrontation for the first time in years where she’s unmoved by his hostility.
Krista drew in another long breath off the cigarette. She was going to have to find another way to calm her nerves or else she’d be smoking a pack a day.
She remained there in the neat kitchen for a long time after she’d finished the cigarette, examining the room and trying to reclaim the warmth she’d once felt there. Not an easy thing to do, now that her mother was gone and her sister living down in Boston. Even after her father had passed away when she was thirteen, the Faye household had been a typical home sweet home. Even though this house was full of things, Krista realized wearily that she had brought her emptiness with her.

Great setup. The last sentence was thought-provoking & honest. Emotional six!
Thanks! I loved writing this character. I know a lot of people are going to frown on the fact she smokes, but it’s a coping mechanism for her, not just a bad habit.
Ending left me feeling a little bleak but I’m sure that was your intension. Moving six.
Definitely was! Thanks so much, Heather!
Kind of how I was feeling last week. lol Nice! Real.
Thanks Calisa. I think I like Krista so much because she’s not the perfect, pretty and unflawed heroine. She has a lot of issues.
Very evocative. A great insight into Krista’s mind.
Great emotion and very intriguing lead in. Great six!
There’s a real sadness about this. Great six.
“…she had brought her emptiness with her” is a beautiful line.
Sounds like she’s pretty depressed.
Very powerful last line. Definitely makes me want to read more.
