I liked the overall concept and story and could hear the Beatle's Eleanor Rigby in my mind as I read the beginning. The ending felt like is was wrapped up in a hurry and could have had a bit more development.
Overall, good job :)
A nice short story with an interesting conclusion. I thought Frankie's character was a bit extreme, but I understand why Mr. Crane wrote him that way. Even though the story was in first person, the word "I" could have been used a bit less, although that's just a personal preference as a writer myself. Overall, a good entertaining story worth a read.
