Great story! Love is a wonderful topic to write about. I think you could write more for this story! Maybe add a few chapters about how she escapes Jacoby to go with him, or how her mother learns in the end that money isn't everything. But even if you don't plan on revising your story, it's great the way it is! :)

It's kinda cheesy, but it's soooo cute. And everyone needs a good dose of cheesy sometimes. It made me smile. Well written. Thank you for sharing your talent. :)

For such a short story, there is a lot of emotion playing out. I was really drawn into the story and I enjoyed reading every bit of it. Definitely 10/10. I'm going to start reading some of your other works now; you've got a new fan!
