My response:

Looking into the mirror, she recognised the woman on the right as the woman on her right, but she had no idea who the woman on the left was.

It's quite Stephen King-y, here, in your neck of the woods. A hauntingly good take, Dave!

Your second story is fab, too! (Methinks those two girlies would do well with sock puppets-- they've certainly got the hand-pose down! LOL!)

Oh, these are both so clever! In fact, I'd go so far as to say these are superb! I had to read each of them twice before I "got" them. The first one reminded me of Tom Sawer and Huck Finn attending their own funeral in the book "Tom Sawyer."

Both are quirky, tantalising stories tending to play a few mind games! Very clever!

Madeleine said...

Great Micros! Second one made me chuckle :O)

Margaret said...

Very funny. The first one is my favourite.

Enjoyed both of your MMs this week. And I'd like to read the rest of that epitaph...
Have a great week ahead. Cheers!

Both are wonderful and terribly clever!

Both are clever. I had to re-read the first one a couple of times to get it. Loved it. :O)

You are all too kind.

Thank you all again for reading.
