Read the story before the reviews.

Read the story, watch it unfold. I give 5 stars for a reason.

Excellent story and characterisation for a short story - all three of the little girl's helpers felt very real. I've read a lot of BP Gregory's stories and this is probably my favourite. Worth a read!

Sadly riveting and all too possible. This may be only 2400 words, but Gregory has written a story that should be read by everyone. It is a well-deserved condemnation of our modern "civilized" world. And it is unutterably sad and not the least bit surprising.

It's an okay five minute read, but I just can't get in to something that is short, even when the subject matter is someone risque and different. Felt like another 2,500 words or so would have made it better. Keep up the good work though, I'll check out your other stuff.
