This was a good mood piece - engendering a sense of nameless dread. I would have liked just an inkling more as to what was going on - but of course there is that work limit! Nice work.

I meant "word" limit.
You painted an eerie picture of fearful expectation, woven with threads of dread, aloneness. The suspense kept building to the end. We are left with question of what this anonymous fear was that could drive God's creation to silence before it. Will this be part of a longer piece?

Solemn, suspenseful, no dramatics, expectation of the known but unknown path.
We can only surmise what, and what fate awaits. The past, present, future in God's hands. Awesome article! God bless ya
Unique, disturbing and beautiful. The symbolic use of the table with all the names carved into it is terrific. We all want to matter, to be remembered.

Anonymous Fear -- I love it. You kept the suspense up throughout because we couldn't identify the threat. Very well done. I've never seen anything like it in the Challenge.

Great, descriptive writing...not so great ending! I want to know what happens! And also what IT was! Then again, maybe some questions are better left unanswered. :-) Excellent job.
