Reader's Diary #1921- Maryam Atoyebi: Rocks in the Pond

Maryam Atoyebi's "Rocks in the Pond" is a pleasant, slice-of-life type flash fiction story about a couple seeming to be newly in love, wrestling a little with self-consciousness and being open about their feelings. They resist comparing themselves to cliched romance stories but as a reader, I just wanted them to dive in. This is a testament to Atoyebi for making me root for the couple in such a short space.

The story is marred somewhat by typos.
