Another person who loves the Classics! I'm not alone! This was really impressive. You had me hoping, as I always do when I read this story, that maybe it'll be different this time. Maybe they'll make it this time. This was beautiful. Keep writing!

Return for Distance:

Here are just a couple of things that I picked up on as I read. Feel free to use or disregard as you see fit.

"I know[] I signed a contract..." I feel like this would be better without the comma. As it is, it's very choppy, and though the comma could technically be there, I think it reads smoother when it isn't.

Watch out for comma splices. "I love him, [and] I want to be with him."

H. Ades? Nice. :)

"In on Orpheu[s]" You have a typo

Yikes, that's harsh, H.Ades. You did a great job with this, though. Sometimes, the writing feels a little bit stiff, but sometimes that's just the way it works out better. Keep up the good work!
