Reader's Diary #2058 - Matthew John Fletcher: Separation

 "Separation" by Matthew John Fletcher is a break-up story of sorts. But the humorous twist is that it's a man's shadow who's abandoned him. 

It doesn't delve into the physical how, the way say a sci-fi story might, but instead is a not so subtle analogy for a relationship where one half is taken for granted. 

Anyway, on top of the cleverness, I also appreciated that there was the possibility of a happy ending.
