The Choice

A robbery gone wrong forces a young man to commit the ultimate crime. When his conscience begins to haunt him to confess the truth, he must choose between family and doing the right thing.

“Writing like this is concise and sharp. You outline for the reader the exact situation of Bradley, without taking up precious words to do it. Nicely done! I also like that the ending is up for interpretation. Overall, a fantastic story. Good job!”
“This story is easy to follow and jumps seamlessly into believable and fairly likeable characters. I loved your ambiguity. That was an excellent choice.”
“That was really fun!  I loved the tension in such a short piece; it had a real tell tale heart aspect to it.  Nicely done.  I also liked the hanging ending.”

“If I had ten thumbs, I would be giving you ten thumbs up for the ending. I hate but love the cliffhanger. The rest of the story really made me invested in the characters! Does he redeem himself? Does he go down the dark path?! I must know.”

“This story does a great job of establishing tension and gripping the reader, taking them for a ride. There’s not a single boring sentence in this entire story!”

“A really unique concept […] The use of the night vision goggles was SUPER creative, I love it! The relationship between your two characters developed very naturally.”
“I found myself smiling a lot during this story and loved the concept a lot.. I liked the protagonist and laughed […] I like dialogue driven pieces so loved that in here.”
“I now care way too much about these characters and want to see what happens next. What am I supposed to do about that? (If you do end up writing more about them, please send it to me). But seriously, really good story you did here. I don’t usually read romance, but now I want to because of you. The way you had the two characters interact was great. I really got lost in the story and felt like I was seeing this date happens.

Also, I want to mention that I laughed with them a lot, especially at the part with the water glass. Really great story.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this story! I thought it was extremely creative without feeling forced.”
