May Classic Author Feature: All I Wanted by Viv



May is a month of seasonal changes. Here in the northern hemisphere, the flowers and blooming and love is in the air.  Time for a romance? Or maybe I can tempt you away to a darker pursuits with this Halloween short story, All I Wanted by @viv from the 2006 Fall Anthology. I know someone was certainly tempting someone in the tale....

All I Wanted by Viv

Length: 9,732

Description: Okay so I can admit it, I’m a freak. It’s official, and I say that only because it’s true. Sitting here, waiting for the doorbell to ring again, or to hear some low knock on our heavy wooden door from some costumed children, accompanied by some less than enthusiastic adults who are constantly reminding their kids to say thank you, I had managed to separate all the candy bars in the bowl I held in my lap, by flavor. I mean what kind of head case does that?

A Reader Said: This was actually my first story I ever read when I joined GA, and still remains my favorite piece on the whole site. I was 17 when I first read it, and the realism of the teenage characters rung so true to real life it totally engrossed me. Every once in a while I come back to reread this story and it never gets old. I love this short.

      Mr. Scribe is no longer with us physically, but he's alive and well in our memories.
      Today would have been his birthday and I think it's a perfect day to celebrate his life.
      I plan on reading the Splash Trilogy one more time this weekend in his honor!
      Thanks for the memories, Jack!
