I normally don't read stories and i have bad grammer (so i just focused on the message it self)
But i really liked this story though, mostly the dark theme you applied to it with a brilliant ending combined with hope.
"There's nothing a candle, some wine, and the woman that he loves in his arms can't fix"
You got that right for sure!
I am not sure, this is the only writing you had published so far since July
May i suggest you try writing short poems as well?
Maybe a song too, or even shorter stories
This is so you can take your time to discover your true passion for writing you know
Don't be afraid, keep writing and never quit. You can change your styles or your mistakes in time with good reviews
Main thing to do now is just focus on writing, don't let your mistakes to hold you back. Because this is how everyone learns you know. I enjoyed reading this story!
