I enjoy all of the imagery throughout this piece- very descriptive. The fact that you made Death this person doing good deeds was different and really enriched the story making it original and really good!

I really enjoy your short story. I like the setting and your perspective of death. You show death as a person or spirit that doesn't particularly like there job. Shows that they have human like qualities. I'd love to see more.

It has an eerie beauty - haunting, even. I would love to hear more of this story and more of the character. Beautifully written!

I love how you made Death a person, and when you killed off the girl, you showed me that death is inevitable and that what goes around comes right back around. Good job, I hope you continue this!

I really enjoyed this. Death is such an interesting figure and I always love reading stories that explore him (or her, I suppose). It's part of why I enjoyed The Book Thief so much. That and the fact that I just love an eccentric narrator.
Anyway, back on topic. The descriptions were amazing and you set the scene so perfectly. I also loved the way you suggested at the torture rather than described it. It worked a lot better than if you had described it in detail- then you run the risk of either making it too tame, or shocking the reader so much it isn't creepy anymore.
Anyway, well done on an amazing story!
