Great work here with this story. The beginning of the story gripped me like a thriller.

I was led to read on and was expecting a thrilling finish.

But the ending was too predictable; injecting subtlety and getting the reader to explore each turn and bend of the story would have done the trick.

It is in short stories that we need to be very careful with the characters. Millie is portrayed as someone who is very predictable and therefore maybe deserving of her predicament at the end, which does not really auger well for the strength of the story.

Well in the real world many victims of rape and sexual assaults are simply innocent victims, and become prey to opportunists for no fault of their own.
