So, I totally wasn't expecting that! First of all, what a beautiful one shot, beautiful descriptions, amazing detail. I like how you didn't make Dom look like her mother or sister, you made her distinctly unique, and I loved that. Everyone feels beautiful standing in their wedding dress, hehe.
And when she went for a walk on the beach to unwind...I was so jealous! Until, you know, that whole thing where she gets killed. Which really is an interesting concept, because you want to hear the whole story so bad, but you don't get to know at all about the killer or what his motive was. It's bizarre and it definitely makes you want to know more. I also liked the little flash back that you gave at the end, it was sweet, but also so sad now that you know her fate, you know?
Finally, I had avoided reading this at first because I don't know anything about next gen, and I feel like that's a hurdle I just need to get over. I really enjoyed this story, great job girl!
Author's Response: Hey Ash!!
Well, I'm glad you got over your hurdle this one time :) I promise you next gen's really not that scary (you should know that, you ARE writing one).
Wow, beautiful descriptions? Really? :P This was written...quite a while back now, and reading over it it sounds so bad...but, I guess I'm my own worst critic.
As for the idea of killing her, this initially started out as a humor piece. I know, right? I woke up one day during the holidays, sat down to write, and the idea of 'what would happen if she was murdered?' floated across my mind. So, I just wrote, and wrote, and this came out. It wasn't planned, and I actually have no idea who the killer is. It's a mystery even to me.
Thanks for the lovely review! :)
