I didn't know what her decision was going to be, and I'm glad for the action she picked. Very nice!

This is masterfully done. I was on the edge of my seat throughout trying to figure out what was going on. Expertly crafted with an ending I definitely was not expecting.

Sad, yet hopeful. I love the words you chose and to write it in the form of a letter is beautiful. Great piece!

Gripping! I love the story. I did find myself wondering how the letter got to Samir, as it is written after the fact. Would her writing this from prison lead the police to Samir?

You really had me guessing at which direction this woman was going to take right up until the end. I have such a hard time putting myself in the shoes of people who do this--just what are they thinking as they get on the bus...watch their fellow passengers...and then-it's over. Good job getting me inside this character's head. I shudder when I think of the kind of hate or the kind of fear that motivates this type of merciless and savage revenge.
Wow, this is very well written... Excellent job!
So well written. I thought she was going somewhere to commit suicide, and I'm so glad your MC got the Truth in time. A beautifully written take on this topic and a well deserved EC win!

Awesome, simply awesome. I loved the description of the day was (sunshine) compared to how the MC thought it should be on such a potentially tragic day. This was scarily realistic. Congrats on a 1st place EC, well deserved.
