Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night(whichever one it is in your part of the world),
Hi! I'm here to leave a quick review!!
First Impression: Well here we are at yet another one of these stories, and it seems connected to a familiar one too. I loved seeing this extra perspective of it from a person who wasn't actively being tricked into getting murdered. It definitely showcases just how evil things really were there.
Anyway let's get right to it,
Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Evangeline. She had a younger sister named Celestria.
Their parents were always busy with work, so Evangeline was really the only one who took care of Celestria.
It was like that for years and was fine with the sisters, for they had developed a close bond over the years.
Well we're off to a pretty neutral start there at the moment. Looks like nothing too surprising is going to come of that particular introduction at the moment. We have ourselves a rather innocent sounding and quite simple opening to be starting off with, just mentioning how these two tend to spend their time together. I think that's quite nicely done. An almost wholesome start.
But all would not always be content. For when Prom came at their high school, Evangeline did not dance, but was staring at the crumpled body of Celestria on the street, a pale boy smiling at her.
“Did you..” Evangeline asked, not bearing to finish the sentence. Who was this boy, to smile so happily at her, as if this were all just a game?
“Yes. I murdered her. She was annoying anyway. Now, since you know too much, I’m going to kill you too.” He said.
He chased her. She couldn’t outrun him. She wanted to, but couldn’t.
Ooooh I think I remember where this connects to. Well that's a shocking reveal to jump to anyway. Wow. Just going right from peaceful co existence as sisters to just straight up one person is currently dead with the murderer just standing there and suddenly the story gets very very serious very very fast. I love the flow that we took to get here.
Who was he to kill her like that? Who was he to call her annoying when he didn’t even know her?
The boy held in her viselike grip. She screamed, but by then she was at the end dead of a forgotten street. No one heard her.
He bit into her neck with alien teeth. The teeth didn’t feel human, that was for certain. She was being bitten by a monster for all she knew.
Evangeline had left Celestria alone for one second and she had died. No matter, she would join her.
When she ascended to Heaven with her sister, she’d make sure to never make the same mistake again…
Ooooh and we have ourselves a surprisingly wholesome ending. I wasn't expecting that. Especially given how much you dived into quite how painful of an experience it was to see that death and how this person ended up killing her too. It was a really powerful moment there and to see that in the end Evangeline just wanted to protect her sister and be happy in heaven is an awesome moment.
Aaaaand that's it for this one.
Overall: Overall a pretty neat piece here and once again I marvel at how different you manage to make this while keeping it all so simple and similar. A lovely little story to add onto to the collection.
As always remember to take what you think was helpful and forget the rest.
