"It is the shop of memories. Its stores are what moments we collect through our lives, those which gather dust or glory on the shelves of our mind. Some are forgotten, some boxed away; some touted as the very best of our life. Every article has meaning, every clipping, sensation. The store changes for each person. What will you see on its shelves? What will you find in its intimate interior?"
This is a story that wishes to be true.
In this new short story by Alex Hurst, the meanings of the words we use for loved ones are explored, as well as the value of the memories we hold dear. After death, a woman peruses the aisles of her life's memories, recalling the lost, forgotten and cherished moments of her life. She is allowed to take one item with her when she passes on, and the path to that choice is one of love, happiness and heartbreak.
2nd edition now includes an afterword by the author, corrections to the Kindle formatting, as well as formerly missing front matter. None of the story's content has changed.
Approximately 3,500 words.
