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!

Beautiful cecil

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!
