    This is my first time with the Speakeasy – I made the comment elsewhere about how interesting it is to see where our imaginations take us – even though we start from the same point. So then I read your story with interest because both our corkboards held flights/itineraries for people gone missing…! That was pretty cool.

    Nice work by the way 🙂

      Freaky deaky! It is very weird when that happens, that two writers take sort of the same path, it’s happened to me before, too. Great minds, you know? I just went and read your story Nadine and it was amazeballs!

        ah, shucks, thanks for that! I am having lots of warm fuzzies about the great feedback, the general sense of encouragement among the other writers. Nice. 🙂

    Very unusual take on the prompt. And such a twist there in the closing paragraphs. Enjoyed this.

    That was well done. It read like it was fun to write. But who is at the door!? Chinese delivery? Hannah? Irina? The cops? Kidnappers? Some random person with a flat tire? Oh! I love it.

    I loved the way this story ended. Very Harold Pinter!

    I love your title, the mystery, the fact of Hannah’s disappearance – or death? – though he says she was planning on leaving him, so what did happen to her? And so you leave us wanting.. nice writing!

    I thnk my favorite part was your description of him looking like he was holding back a sneeze — I’ve seen that a few times and it is a really accurate way of describing it. I love the way the Bang bang bang interrupts, too.
