This was quite depressing but written very well. It would be nice to know more about the setting and time period... but i know you were dealing with the word count.

Graphic and intriguing--who are these people? A bit of background would have clarified, I think, and perhaps helped us to understand why this was a charade.

The open ending is also very thought-provoking.
