I'll be clear about this up front - I probably never would have read this story if I weren't reviewing it, but when it was requested that I review it I agreed.
It would have been a shame if I hadn't. Yes, it is difficult to fit much detail or plot or character development into such a short story; yes, the story would have benefited greatly from an editor working on it, in the technical area; yes, the ending will probably require either an airsickness bag or a dose of insulin... but it is good for what it is: a short series of vignettes of the start of a romance. In a way, the vagueness makes the two central characters a set of proxies for the reader... so everyone who reads will probably come to different conclusions about what the characters are like and how the relationship will develop.
Those who are looking for any stroke value, or for flawless technique, or for vivid detailed descriptions or intricate plots will all be disappointed. Those looking for a story 4 out of 5 dentists would recommend you avoid ought to give this one a try.
