This was a creative entry. I never expected the doctor to be the postman.

This is brilliant. You do a stunning job of pulling me in by building the suspense. I loved all the little conflicts throughout the story, but the ending was the best of all. I love it when I don't see a twist coming. It doesn't happen often, but you did it. Outstanding and one of my favorites.

wow!!! When I grow up I want to write like you. Awesome job pulling me in and keeping wondering what was to come next. Then that bombshell of an ending left me with my mouth open. So, I read it again. I'll study this one to teach me how to write better.
Congrats on your 1st place award. You deserved it! Keep up the good work.
I loved the suspenseful build up and the twist at the end. The conflict of the two characters was masterfully done.

Congratulations on your first place in EC.

Congratulations on your first place! It is well deserved! It's funny how we both wrote stories about older ladies named Maragret who also fixed a cup of tea, but of course your story is so extremely well written. I liked the twist on the ending, too!
