Well written dialogue, and excellent characterization. And being one of those brilliant, intimidating women myself, I just love the ending.
Author's Response: Good God lady, I know what you mean. I don't have to tell you this didn't fall far from the personal fantasy tree...Only thing is, when I went to write it, she got more complicated, and he got nicer. Hmmm...maybe a visit with the shrink there....anyhoo, thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
Oh, I absolutely love it. Brilliant characterisation for such a short piece. You keep the tension on a good level, and feeling sympathy with the woman is no problem at all. You probably could have 'angsted' it out a little more, but the fact that you didn't doesn't deminishes my delight in reading this story at all.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I am a humble writer, and a science major. I have several friends who are literary people; teachers, students, PhD's...and they all tell my this is good but I could do better. Look for a reqrite in the future. I may add a bit more angst...
That is such a sweet story! The last line is great, and makes a nice clincher to the repeated 'guys like you...' bit. Loved it!
Author's Response: Thank you! I am glad that you liked it. And I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to review!
