Well done, powerful story.

You've first hinted at, and proceeded to develop, the malevolence that pervades this story. Pity about the word limit, because I for one would have liked to see more of the characters and of their stories.
But then we can all meet people like them any day of the week. Plus there are elements of them in our own stories whenever we are confronted the effects - real and potential - of our own bad choices.
Well done
You caught my interest quickly and kept me intrigued until about 3/4 of the way through when I figured out what was going on. I do like that you made Christopher's story just a simple, lived-for-himself rather than a cliché drama.
