  1. Spectacular use of alliteration….it works to make it seem like the story is flowing along so lyrically from one chapter to the next.

  2. Alliteration is one of my favourite things (after wine and cake) and you do this so well in this short story that says so much. Thanks for joining in on the last challenge!

  6. This is so clever! I love all the thrice-alliterated phrases! And such a touching little story. I wonder, did she hide it there because she never worked up the nerve to give it to him, or did he hide it there because it meant so much to him? It’s wonderfully vague. 🙂
