Too Late

by Rachel Green

She stared at me, a perplexed look on her face, as if she expected me to remember her. I didn’t of course. I have perfect memory control and have been deleting selected memories long before I ever realised what I was doing. Certainly long before I ever met her... whoever she is. What does she mean, we lived together for five years? I’d remember someone that important to me, wouldn’t I?

Rachel Green, whose full catalog is here, is an English woman who spends far too much time writing about demons.

Wow, another great six by a great sixer. This story is so good on so many levels. Not a word wasted and a wonderful conundrum that awaits us all if it hasn't happened already!

Oh, what I would do for that skill! Cool six, as always.

That's ace. I should come here more often.

Wish I could do that. **sigh**

Great Six, Rachel. Well done.

I had somewhat the same experience, the selective amneisia that is... Very nice 6~

Very nice to see this one again, Rachel. As brilliant as your others in a way that hurts fundamentally.

Great six! Tight, concise, and well-written - I wish I could delete selected memories.

You have probably touched on the thoughts of many, and did it well.
