Visiting Hours

August 6, 2020

    Rice piled on my plate like a cold white ant bed. Mom adjusted her glasses again. Perry dug her tongue into her cheek. She exaggerated a sigh, and Mom took the bait.
“Don’t you like the rice, Perry?”
“Not hungry.”
“Gram said Chinese was your favorite,” Mom said. She cut a limp vegetable and popped it in her mouth.
“Not yours,” Perry replied coldly. Mom’s proud posture humbled itself. I looked at Perry; she was unrepentant. I lowered my eyes and poked at my food, silently wishing the divorce had only separated Mom from Dad.

    Congrats on the win!!! You really did a great job of setting the mood and showing emotion without stating it explicitly, and it's so easy to envision the scene. That last sentence was surprising, and the perfect way to end. Awesome job on this piece :)

    Amazing job at creating such a tense atmosphere/mood in such a short amount of time! Leaves me curious (but also slightly worried) for what will happen next!

    Oh wow, I was not expecting that ending and it took me a second to get it. When it hit, though, it hit hard. I really like the subtly hostile air that you've created in this piece!
