Aggie and the Woman, The End.

That Monday afternoon, Marième waved at Aggie when she stepped onto the train. Aggie waved back. I wish you the very best, she told the woman silently. It was all she could do. * As usual, Marley was waiting for Aggie when the latter exited the train station. “Did you have a good day today?” …

Aggie and the Woman, Part 7

This is probably my favorite portion of the story. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ “Yaa, is everything all right?” her mother asked breathlessly when her daughter’s face came into view on the computer’s camera a few hours later.
