Perspective

At last, he’d found it.  He breathed out, body relaxed.

“But nothing’s changed!” she cried at him.  She was incensed.  He tightened his fingers, closed his eyes, hanging on.  I’ll help you see, he thought to himself, I’ll try.  In a minute.

But for now, he had his treasure, and he would not give it up.

  1. So he’s trying to relax and hold on to his (new) perspective before trying to get her to see it? I can see where the clouds would show the relaxation and perspective part.

  2. Yeah, the picture just spoke to me something of a treasure, found after an arduous effort. But I don’t think the execution of this story is as well done as it could have been.
