I love the book Just Listen so I had to come read this. I like that you get that very alone feel until the flashback. Its very much that Cassie is a strong women. Also that we don't know her name until the flashback, it adds that she is trying to keep to herself. I love that she finds the ring and that she puts it on. I think that the quote very much fitted its use in that she would always be able to find him. Report Review
Oh, wow, this is so interesting! I was not expecting anything like this, but I'm glad to read it. It was lovely!
I've never read a story with Regulus as one of the main characters...so that was a definitely a plus. And Cassy was just fantastically written and created. I loved their relationship, everything about it seemed so real and raw. And the fact it was such a tragic ending broke my heart. But, at the same time, it definitely added reality to the love story. Just when Cassy thought life would improve (Regulus saying they could leave the dingy motel) everything was torn apart. How tragic that truly is.
I loved how you used the quote you were given. It was a great interpretation and I really enjoyed the story. The tone of the story was so pain-filled that my heart actually ached for Cassy and Regulus' relationship. When she was choking out her tears, my eyes actually even filled up. You have a good way of presenting the emotions and your reader really does feel what the characters are feeling.
Well done! I really appreciate you joining my contest. Continue to keep up the great work!Author's Response: Oh, thank you very much (: After I finish some of my other stories, I'm thinking of actually branching off of this one-shot and creating an actual story for it. Not sure what I'm going to do, actually, but I'll come up with something, lol. Thank you for the chance to write this story, and for the review (: Report Review
