Ooooooh. Nice.

A little more "horror" than I thought Darker Matter usually handled, but with a delicate, arm's length touch and a hint at true human darkness that perhaps makes it suitable for Darker Matter after all.

This is a real masterpiece is subtle exposition: look how much we learn in the course of this short fiction about the time, the place, the people involved... and yet there's a cogent and deep plot running at the same time.

"But I think I remember why I barricaded it now."

Best line in the whole piece: revenge, love and hate all wrapped up in confusion and fear at the same time.

Awesome. Just awesome. Whoever gave it a "1" needs to engage his/her brain. I hope there's a novel with this quality in the works somewhere, because I'll buy it.

R.

I really, really liked this story. This is the best I've read out here so far. 10.
