  1. This is an excellent take on the challenge. Well done!


  2. This is so different from what I was expecting and this difference made it more exciting.


  3. Ooo. It pairs well with that last post. And it’s very ominous.


  4. I can understand this, even though I am an only child. Very nice writing.


  5. Love this – Protector, patron, enemy, too. All three at once? I want to read more.


  6. Who can be a ‘worse’ enemy than a sibling who knows one so well? And who can be a better friend too, for that matter?

    This is a great response from you as always. 🙂


  7. Oh boy… you just described so well exactly how I feel about my brother. You used the perfect words.

  10. So much emotion in 33 words. Treacherous relationships most definitely include family ones!


  11. Very well done. Family can hurt you more than anyone else.


  12. oh dear – treachery in the family. 😦

    well written


  13. I can totally understand this (I have an annoying brother -.-) Very well written 😀 Well done! 😀


  14. I’m intrigued by the entry of the word “patron” into this story. What was her occupation before this?
