I've read the other comments and, after reading through your story, my advice would be to sit down and ask yourself what is really important to this story? You can ask that about every paragraph: does this move the story along? Many of the details in the beginning are ultimately unimportant. I think you have the seeds of a great story here, if you can cut out the extraneous part and do more "showing" rather than "telling." Good effort! Please take a moment to read my story, "Dating Safari," and share your comments.

Show don't tell. Your characters should show the story through dialogue, instead of you telling it to us. Also the shift in time is confusing, you need to work on your story structure. If you have the time, please read my story, 'Drift Away' and leave a review, letting me know if you liked it.

Great passion but too much explaining. Let characters talk.
