This was really, really, good. I feel like you gave us a great amount of descriptions and rich vocab to suck us in from the beginning. Great job with this!

I liked this a lot, actually. I liked that I felt like I was reading a piece of history, something widely known. I love how much background you gave, too, in such a short piece. But you went into depth with the right things, and so much in the right thing. With that, I'm very impressed. Outstanding job!

This was very good. At first I was drawn in by your descriptions in the first paragraph! Wonderful! And then the excitement and anticipation that you create when Akil falls in to the river. This is wonderfully written and if I could heart it more than once, I definitely would.

Falling for a nice guy cover

a typo: " It was several hours later that Hasani’s body was finally managed to be retrieved from the river." maybe get rid of "managed to be" or just get rid of the second "was."
