This story grabbed me right away with its strong first line, and I loved the repetition of the phrase "May you have a short, unexpected death." However, the story lacked focus. It was very episodic, with one part not necessarily connecting to the next. Much of the action seemed to derive from the author's desire to have something happen than from the natural progression of the story. I encourage you, however, to keep writing and striving for creative plot twists, as you seem capable of providing.

I really liked this one and how the story line wasn't obvious from the beginning. The ending leaves the reader wondering but not in a bad way, just like the protagonist you understand why it is no longer important. A fantastic writer who I'm sure is going to do well in the future.
