The 500 was a really emotional experience for me. In one way I'm sorry that I ever read it, but in another I am happy that it puts so many things into perspective. Thankyou Mr Hughes for a candid look at this. Puts me in mind of a film that upset me last year but also taught me about forgiving myself.
Good short read. I found it a bit cliched, but not too much, and the ending was pretty damned good.

Weird story! I've no idea about the significance of Billy Bunter either, but he's probably like my childhood comic book heroes. It's a bit horrific at the end, but is very well written and worth reading. A cut above some of the short stories I've hsd on Smashwords.
