I am sending you this review as part of the judging process for "A fall romance contest". Congratulations on your first place, by the way!
In your piece "Why?", you created a very real setting for me as the reader. What I particularly liked was that you did this without bombarding me with description and physical details. In fact, I think I can only recall a couple of instances of physical description in the entire in the entire piece.
I picked that Ben was a ghost (or memory) fairly early in the piece, but that doesnt detract from the story in anyway.
The small amount of dialogue you used was sufficiently "sappy" and at the same time "real", in that it read and flowed well, while sounding like an actual conversation.
As for spelling, grammar and such, I really couldn't see anything glaring out at me, thats a good thing.
