That Jasmine Scent
This one is a thought experiment; based on a few autobiographical elements, it helped me explore something that didn't but could've happened, and how I would've reacted.
My original title for it was,"Love Is a Wonderful Thing." I still wonder if I should've kept it. I liked its Flannery O'Connoresque ring. The deliberate cliché appeared bitterly sarcastic at the beginning, yet it was substantiated in the end. And this modulation also echoed the temperament of the psychotic cat. You'll see.
