Good job for a quick scrawling. I read it twice and couldn't see any discrepancies or other types of errors. A thrilling read. Kept me interested from beginning to end. Left me wanting to know more! Great work. Good luck in the contest! God bless and hugs, Susanne

    Thank you. I am thinking about writing more of this story. So many want to know what becomes of Maria and Mayzie. I will get my brain to work on it. Any suggestions?

    You could have Maria flash back to when she first learned that Mayzie was being abused? Just a thought. You have a great beginning! God bless and hugs, Susanne

This is an interesting story, clearly written on a topic that is all too often true, i.e., molestation of one's own children. Even though this story is fiction, it's important to write about such abuse. Marilyn

    Thank you. I may write more of this story. It seems everyone keeps asking me what happens to Maria? I don't know myself yet, but I'm working on it.

I did not look for any mistakes as I enjoyed it so much that I forgot to look for any. I was so engrossed in the story and how it was developing, I was trying to figure out how it would end and I still don't know.

    Thank you. I am considering writing some more to this story and using this for the first chapter then going back to where it all started. Then adding a final chapter that tells what became of Maria and Mayzie. does that sound good to you?

That was an excellent story for the contest. I could imagine a mother doing that too, I know I would and not feel a trace of guilt in doing so. The story is very well written, planned out and the plot unfolds in a nice easy way that we are rooting for the wife and her daughter. Well done, and good luck in the contest. :) Sandra

The story definitely got my attention. It's generally well-written, though as stated in the author notes, could use a copy edit to clean up some minor grammar issues.

I'm not sure arsenic would actually kill someone that quickly, or at least not without making them violently ill first. Perhaps she could also lace his drink with sleeping pills?

A good vengeance story, which wouldn't be out of place in a collection of mystery stories.

    Thank you. Good Idea, I will go back and add sleeping pills to the story. I wasn't sure about arsenic either. It was the only poison I could think of in a hurry.

Hey, that was very good. Everyone hates a child molester and wishes them dead so we have no sympathy for them at all. She didn't even want any of the money that shows real hatred. Good for her, hope he rots in Hell. Regards Mabaker.

WOW that was some powerful writing. Now I'm intrigued to know what happened to Marie and if her brother was as good as his word. Though I suspect he would be. Great job. Mary

    Thank you. I intend to finish this story soon. There is a word limit on this flash fiction. It's driving me nuts trying to figure out what became of Maria and Mayzie. LOL

This would make a great first chapter of a book. I was hooked from the first word to the last word and hoped they both would get away. Good luck in the contest and thank you for sharing.

    Thank you. I hear you and intend to write more on this story. If I don't it will drive me crazy wondering what happened to all of them. LOL
