When you think you know where the story has gone, Rienzi takes it in a totally different direction. She whips you out of your, "Ah, now I've got it" state of mind and throws you into a scenario you couldn't guess. Then, when you immediately think you know where it's gone, she takes it in yet another direction. I'm a great lover of unpredictability and it's hard to surprise me, but this short story did take me by surprise, especially for how short it is!
I'll definitely be reading more of Rienzi's work in the future.
I finished this story a long time ago, but because I didn't like it, and kinda sorta know the writer, I wanted to make sure I was well thought out so as not to offend. That's the last thing I want to do even if I don't kinda sorta know the writer. The writer has talent. I want that to be known. In the story it was really the main characters thoughts that killed it for me. Inner dialogue is always good, but when the person literally tells you whats going to happen next, or at least guess correctly instead of letting things play out so the reader to be surprised is not going to help a story at all. And it didn't here.
If some changes were made, like a chunk of the giveaways in the main characters inner dialogue, the story could quite literally be perfect. Perfect because the mystery and tension would be there and the payoff entirely worth it and not at all a let down. With those changes this story could be an outright nail biter. I mean this sincerely.
