The initial impressions left me uninterested in a tale of domestic violence with prose that did little to assuage my interest. As i pushed on, forcing myself to read on, a dramatic evolution found its way into the write up and I was able to enjoy the remainder of the story to the fullest.
A creative short story that had no other place in this competition other than the first. Room for improvement? Always.

The story is verbose and had forced detailing at some points. The overall idea, however, is amazing and I loved the ending and how it was written.

It was a well-crafted tale depicting realities of present times. As the story unfolds along the pages, a threatening yet clearly anticipated doom begins to linger in the mind of a reader. It's individualistic and realistic in its potential.
