i loved this! the whole time i thought it was her boyfriend, and i thought it was kinda wierd that a girl would love a guys mustache so much, so i loved the way it caught me off guard that it was her father. Great job:)

Incredible ending, really pulled my heart-strings! At first I thought the mustache man and her were actual lovers, so at the end when it said he was her father I was a bit startled haha, but it makes sense now :) Again, long paragraphs, but amazing emotion and imagery!

this was perfect. i loved the metaphor of the mustache being the father's personality, and the ending was perfect. in fact, there is very little i would tell you to change. the length is great, your grammar is spot on, and your imagery is perfect. the only thing i would say should be looked at is in the first paragraph, you were explaining the love Juliet had for the mysterious mustached man in a way that i thought was more husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend than father/daughter. you never say that Juliet is a little girl (or if you did i missed it...) so i was confused when all of a sudden she was hugging her mother. i would touch that up but otherwise, excellent job!!!

absolutely loved this! i thought the first paragraph seemed a bit overdone at first with her description of how much she loved this man, but when you reveal it is her father, it all makes sense and fits.
