I think what really makes this a good story is your use of details and the senses. :) I love stories like these. nice work!

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!
