  1. Brilliant. My biases tricked me into believing the character was a young girl until the last line. Very enlightening 50-Word story. The use of names rather than generic pronouns offers so much more to a story. This story is a perfect example of how the use of “Bella” added to my bias, since I immediately associated the name Bella with a young girl. You’ve accomplished a great deal in a short space. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you very much James, I’m really glad you enjoyed it. My mother had a stroke when I was very young and it was painful to watch her recovery, it was a second, arduous childhood for her. Her name is Isabell and I agree, Bella does sound like a young girl’s name, which suggested the story to me.
