This is so good! I loved everything about it. I was drawn in at first by just the cover and the description. I love the name Clemence, that is so cool. I've heard names close to it, but never that exact one. This was so well written. I love the voice and point of view. The story flowed beautifully; it was like each sentence melted into the next. The plot was also great, it kept me wanting to read more the whole time. I love the little flashback where it says where they met. That was so sweet. Really great job, I wish I could heart this more than once!

I really enjoyed that! I loved your writing style. I liked how you made it seem so realistic. This does happen alot. I love how you twisted Alan's words from a lie to the truth. I like that you made it short and sweet. I don't think dragging out would give push of the words never said idea. I really loved your writing style :) I did get a few shivers when Clemence said what Alan really meant! It is just amazing! :)

Wow. That had one large impact. And your writing here is fabulous! I like the idea of giving a voice to the unspoken words. I thought that was pretty creative. At one part towards the end I did get slightly confused. Just that one part about the unspoken words screaming. Or something along those lines. Maybe make it more clear. Otherwise this is a beautiful piece. Great job! :)
