Not a very in depth story, but it does entertain some intriguing possibilities.

I liked this. Very cheeky, doing all tell and no show, and it is a gamble - writing from such a distant perspective.
Somehow it all worked for me.

All tell and no show, indeed. But I can't say I found it a pleasant experience to be told by the author what I should be feeling in the face of a barely-described scene that led to a scarcely-understood climax. There's a reason why the mantra is "show, don't tell".

I'm afraid I found this piece more like a recitation from a thesaurus than a story. From the author's bio, I have to assume that this was some sort of exercise or a 6 AM rendition of a fading dream, because I can't say it made me inclined to read anything else by Larry Tritten is this is typical of his work.
