Congratulations on a well deserved win, Tom. I didn't read this when it was posted because it was for a blind contest so I didn't get a notice that you had something new. I would have voted for it but you won without my pity vote. Hehe. I love how you made it a woman, and a typical wifey one at that. LOL!

    Thank you. I was thinking of you and Mark when I wrote it.

    I'll bet you were. You're so jealous of Mark that you take it out on me. :)

There with(there) back to him stood someone in a long trench coat

"I'm the last man on earth."

Now how would he know that?

not if you were the last man on earth.

But I am the last man on earth

Each word earth should be caped because you are referring to the planet not like soil...

Enjoyed this because it touched on my favorite poem and poem of all time - Edgar Allen Poe, and "quote the raven nevermore".

Should make an interesting entry into this contest.

Hi! This kept my attention the whole way though the reading. I liked it a lot. Creative mind you have in writing this. I love that sentence that Dale drove and bein nevermore. Kept it consistently detailed with throughout the story. Great write and a awesome read.

Very clever references to The Raven that most readers would recognize and relate to. Positive use of humor ("not if you were the last man...but I am the last man" etc). The ending is unexpected as it had seemed the last man had resigned himself to being bossed around by his new friend. Having him drive away with the "nevermore." is very effective.

    Thank you very much. You're always so kind. I love it when you stop by.

    Amazon just published my first book. The Complete Tom and Carol.

    When I was writing these stories Carol kept telling me, don't write about me.
    I used someone else's picture for the cover. When Amazon published it, she said, "I want my picture there."

    What a difference being published makes.

Hmm the beginning was a little hard to believe with the way he spoke to her after being alone for two months, but then the joke began to settle in and things picked up.

I think this will do well.
