  2. Oh, hijacked their performance with something so terrible. Very nice use of the drabble form, Sherri!

  3. I love your take on the photo. Questions arise- what actually was supposed to happen. Great Flash.

  4. I can feel the confusion, shock, and worry. Creepy cool, Sherri. Fantastic Flash.

  5. An exciting flash. Tense, with questions needing to be answered. Awesome Sherri!
