Hey there! Here from the review tag!

Homg, I entered this challenge too, but now I feel like I have no chance whatsoever :P I loved how you kept the mystery of who was speaking for quite a while, it kept me reading and it wasn't long enough to get me irritated :D

I also loved how you created a definite distinction between the present Dominique and 14 year old Dominique, because people grow and change and this was a fantastic example of that ;)

I also liked the toxicity of Teddy and Dom's relationship. She knows it isn't right and they always fight, yet they always crawl back to each other. In many ways I would perceive them as drug addicts, they are each others heroine- an addiction and a downfall.

I particularly loved the ending, we don't know what Dominique's choice is and you left us on a cliffy that will never be solved. I will be forever wondering if she opened that door or if she opened it, and sometimes, it's good to leave it open for the reader to decide ;)

Great job!

Author's Response: Hello! Thanks for the review :)

I probably shouldn't admit that the not-letting-on-who's-speaking-thing was kinda accidental :P But I'm glad you liked it, and that it didn't get annoying!

I had lots of fun writing adult Dominique looking back on teenage Dominique- it's great to hear that the change in her felt natural, because I worried a little that the transition wouldn't feel natural...

Ahh, the drug addiction thing is such a lovely analogy! I wish I'd thought of that :P You're absolutely right, it's an addiction, and they both kind of hate it, but can't escape from it.

Glad you liked the ending too! I sort of wanted to leave it so that readers could decide for themselves!

Thanks again for such a wonderful review! I'll come and check out your entry too when I get the chance :)
