This was beautifully sad. If that makes sense. I wish she knew how good she could be without him. I really wish she knew. That's not love if the other person doesn't treat you the way you treat them :(

Wow. I got shivers at the end. I don't really feel like writing a long review, so I'll just say this was wonderfully written. You captured the denial and the struggle of the MC so well; I felt like I was her. It was just...really good. I think it really captures an abusive relationship, with the girl so convinced he loves her and they're meant to be even though it's far from that.

This is a pretty cool story. :)
The beginning confused me. After reading it, I could see how it tied in, but you don't really need the first four sentences (the italicized part.) The rest of it flows PERFECTLY.
The line of the story itself is clearly and concisely expressed beautifully. I can see what's happening in the story very well.
The story is sad and beautifully written. I don't have much else to say about it, other than great job! Best of luck in the contest.
