I would have changed, “her” in the quote above to “Margot” just to make the pronoun clearer.

Great plot twist at the end. The errant curl seemed to be the mannerism that they shared. I assume that Tom was the father and the rapist in this situation. So this got very dark at the end. I really liked your description of Margot, particularly this quote, “Victoria had always felt the giddying force of her presence, both intoxicating and unnerving at the same time, as if she were walking along a roof’s edge. Things happened when she was around her.”
It was good foreshadowing as well. What is interesting to think about is whether Tom is a rapist who decided at the moment to attack Victoria, or whether it was premeditated to get a child. From his reaction to Victoria, he didn’t expect to see her again. So that is an ambiguous question that is left dangling. Well done!

Cool story. I like the twist ending. I picked up on the fact that the adopted daughter was the daughter. Was it Tom who raped Victoria? I’m not sure I’m reading that right.

Great story, Taryn. You did a great job contrasting the two women, engaging me in their shared story and building up for the twist at the end. Well done!

Excellent story, if slightly given away before the end. Enjoyable none the less.

Cheers,

Well done. I kind of saw what was coming when Margot talked about Tom and her had adopted a baby. My only critique would be maybe a little more physical resemblance between Victoria and her daughter – maybe a mannerism would have worked too just to emphasize the connection. I really liked your story Taryn.
