I guess should elaborate on why this story is so concise. Well, first off, this is more prose than a story. I try to right prose everyday, for practice, and when I like what I've written I show it to other people. And another reason why this particular piece is short is due to the fact that the story is unresolved. With my daily prose, I often continue characters and their conflicts and I rarely resolve them.
Sorry if that doesn't make sense.
