Mysterious, enthralling, and intriguing. It's too bad it's so short! I'm hungry for more and curious to find out who HE is and why they fear him so much. Well done. This is a great write.

I was able to be thrown into a small section of what feels like a much larger story. Captivating and intriguing. Wish there was more. Good job!

This is straightforward, to the point, and effectively written, yet mysterious.

I think what I like best in the non-specific nature of it. It could be literal, or metaphor or supernatural, or ethereal - it's amazing. And it can easily stand alone, or be picked up as story or novella.
The Silver Swan kidnaps the reader and forces them into the shoes of 'the runner', and before you realize why or how - you're running too. Nicely done!
