I actually really enjoyed this storygame, and it held a lot more than expected from the story length. I think that with some more story behind this, it could certainly be one of the better storygames that can be found here.
Very little errors can be found in grammar and spelling, which shows the fort the author put into their storygame.

I really like how the author provided such a fulfilling story with only a small amount of words, which is very impressive to me. On one of that paths, it reveals that there's a whole other story, so that could also be provided to increase the length.

Another thing I enjoyed was how there's different paths available, so it's not linear like some stories that are twice as long but not even as good. Hopefully in the future the author can either add to this or create a whole new storygame altogether, which I would not hesitate to read.

5/8

A must read primer for those seeking to survive in today's dog eat dog and blame the cat world, for it is a work adroitly aware of the fundamental flaws of Westerners named along the lines of Jyoti. Nothing good comes of such upper middle class, white women with special nomenclature, their petite innocence a mere mask for the blackest of souls that would spurn xenia for but a moment's satisfaction. The lack of continuity in the work only furthers the point, driving home the duplicitous nature of the documented.

An entertaining read. The first ending I got is where she just nicks your phone and you have to chase her out the house. Whereas if you choose slightly differently, she never nicks your phone at all.

There's really not much continuity here. If you ask her to do one option, then your sister turns up. If you ask her another option, your sister never even makes an appearance. All that aside, it was still fun to read.

Now THAT'S romantic...

*cries in corner in acknowledgment such idealistic a date will not be possible in user's life* Anyway, you've got an uncommon story type here. You wrote this in third-person view, but managed to maintain the excellency of the story. It's also one of the not many short stories I've left a good rating on. Still, the length was a bit of a bother, but your apparent mastery of details and wording, and the flowiness of an ideal story in its telling, more than make up for the short length.

Good things really do sometimes come in small packages, and almost all the time they're worth all the cents users have to offer. 6/8.
