The story will eventually circle around to the beginning with flashback, which will explain where it came from. Unfortunately, when I write, I don't have a plot in mind...I simply write until inspiration runs thin. I do have several more pages of this story, but they do little to explain plot or motive.
Thanks much for the critique. I will work on the story and repost it when I have time. I would, however, like to know what you liked about it.
