Writing, Short Story

I love how powerful this was for something so short and simple. You started a good number of your sentences the same way, but I almost felt like it just served to drive the story along, like it intensified the rejection at the end. Your characters also seemed well developed, and, while I like happy endings, I feel that this stood out because it had a strong element of realism to it. Great work! :)

That is so sad! :( I love the way you describe things and the emotions throughout the story. It is sad that he didn't like her back though. Good job!

Good atmosphere the hook provides. I like the tone of the narrator and how the urgency is presented. However, you cannot continue after dialogue w/o a "said" or something of the like in it. So the nodding and other such non-verbal gestures would be their own sentences. There's a decent amount of mystery and I'm glad it ended the way it did.
