A luster drizzled across the interloper’s eyes, glaring like two curious, permanently stuck lightning bolts; the fragments of solid brightness threatened all with a careful devouring of information: whatever she could see, she’d remember and recreate in a dollhouse in her mind. All of the sounds would play back in full clarity; all the smells would drift again.

    Its quite an awe for me that how we are actually able to build back things and savour them again and again till the luster fades.
    And the smells would drift again.

    I am sorry my baby

    The last line really struck me. Sounds and smells bring on the strongest memories for me. Great piece.

    This has a gauzy feel to it when you read, light but with some heft behind the words. Nice.

    Vividly expressed. The intensity of her stare, eating up all the information she can gather…

    I love this. She stumbles into the middle of something worth remembering, and she locks the memory in, anticipating the moment in the future when she will recall it. I don’t know the situation, but the way you captured her is exquisite.
