For some very personal reasons, this story touched my spirit. Thank you so much for writing it.
Oh, what a wonderful telling of a universal life experience (most of us can relate to being handicapped in one way or another), but with a unique and intriguing twist! Great story!
What a great way to write this! Hehe...I see you used a certain inspiration.

This was so interesting and caused me to stay with it to the end, wondering and I wasn't disappointed at all. It worked in so well with the topic, surprising me at the end. God bless ya, littlelight

This was very, very cute B. But left so many unanswered questions.
Like: how was she born without a sense of smell? It's so quirky.
Maybe if you had more space, you could add a one line explaination in there... or just something, uh... more.
Otherwise good.
You know it! :D

A very romantic tale. Her disability threw me for a second, but then I thought, why not? Loss of sight or hearing might be more common, but that's what makes the story stand out. Thanks for writing it and sharing the picture in your heart!

Delightful story. Well told. Great idea fitting a disability to the theme.
Great job Brandi! I read your hint first, so I knew this one was yours AND I know you don't have a sense of smell, but I still was trying to figure out what her disability was going to be. I thought maybe they met over the internet or something and now he'd see she was in a wheel chair or something. :)You timed it well, it's good to keep us guessing. Good details too!

Hey Brandi - are you on a roll or what? Congratulations on this great 2nd place win in the Level 1 awards. I know you've already moved up to Level 2, so I don't have to tell you to go. ;-)

You also ranked 15th overall (out of 145 entries), so give yourself another pat on the back. You are doing very, very well.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)

Good for you, Brandi. Well done! I remember you fretted about 'fragrance' when the topic was posted... but you did it!
