Everything you are about to read is purely my own opinion and is in no way right or to be considered.
I liked the over all idea of the story. Someone starting a new life and holding onto something they think they can not live without.
I did find it a little hard to read with some lengthy sentences which could be cut down for example: "Too many memories, boxes and boxes of them laying around a room that will soon no longer be his."
I would have written it as "Too many memories. Boxes and boxes of them that lay around the room. Soon to no longer be his." I cut them down into choppier sentences to keep the pace. Memories, what memories? Boxes, why so many boxes? Why will they no longer be his? Do you see what I mean? I also cut the prefix of -ing from lay and changed the sentence, that in my opinion reads better but I am no expert.
There are also a few spelling mistakes which can be easily corrected such as: "He did not indent to end up here," it should be intent instead of indent.
I won't point out all of the mistakes as you'll probably get the idea but if you wish you can message me and request me to have a look and I'll do a more in-depth
review for you to help. Again I am no expert but I can help in places.
I liked the ending as it leaves it open and makes us wonder what past these two had and what will happen in their future.
A nice story over all so well done!
