And... D'oh! Foot meet mouth. · 2:22am Sep 9th, 2017

Just got the word that I'd failed moderation again. *sigh* This time for having a short description that was TOO short.

I was trying to make it mysterious, and I suppose I did it too well. The frustrating part is that I could easily make the short description longer, but that would reveal and ruin the last second surprise at the end of the first chapter.

I'm not certain what to do. Any advice out there? If need be, I can set the password on the story and let folks beta it.

I fell in love during the Cold War. She was from the other side of the Wall. Some of my father's 'friends' found out, and tried to 'save' me from her. Things ended badly.

I thought I couldn't fall in love again, and then I met Aili.

Only to have cancer bitchslap us both.

I told Aili about Tasha. No lies between us. And she said "Our bed is big enough for three."

You know, few people are ever lucky enough to find love that does that to them in their lifetime. And here I was, not only had I had it once and had it yanked from me, but I found it a second time

So, yeah. Thanks for writing this.

I really am humbled like I said in my edit below. Thank you for reading my stuff...and I truly am sorry for your loss.

It's a good story. I'm not a LEO, just an old retired soldier, but there's a lot of this story that rings true for me.

I lost someone in 2004. Cancer doesn't give a damn any more than a random traffic accident does. I still miss her and always will.

That part of the story means a lot.

Thank you so much for taking time to read Ranger, and finding something in it worthy of making your fave bookshelf. :twilightsmile:

*Edit* and thank you SO much for the watch/follow. I am always so humbled when anyone wants to read my stuff let alone follow along with my ramblings. :pinkiehappy:
