This is a short story I wrote for a writing competition, adapted for a storygame. It's a short-and-sweet, but I thought it was worth a share, so I hope you like it. :)

Constructive feedback is greatly appreciated!

Your storygame has potential. The writings are quite descriptive and flowed well with the story eventhough there are some grammatical mistakes. It's a short storygame so I don't expected much but I would like to address something with your story.
First, I'm not sure with your intention of the main character- Emma. Base on the story, I give a reasonable guess that she doesn't get a long well with the other students and is used to be all by herself base on her reaction when Lizzie asked her to take a seat next to her. The story didn't bring up why she reacted that way so it's a little confused. Furthermore, the process when they became best friends is quite vague. I couldn't know how emotional attached they are with eachother to truly understand and appreciate their friendship. The story mentioned that Lizzie and Emma started to play games with eachother every Saturday but then it didn't bring any other side stories to completely determine their friendship. The part where Emma was at her house and realised that Lizzie is a Christian felt like something missing. In my opinion, in this situation, you actually need to describe how horrible her experience with her aunt and uncle forced her beliefs so than the readers can actually feel sympathize with Emma and can also explain how awkward the situation was. So what I trying to say is that there aren't enough stories to determine Emma's reaction , Lizzie and Emma's friendship and Emma's suspicion.
Well, that's all I got. Your story hold potentials , you just need a little practice and well done. 5/8

I really liked this. The ending actually made me really sad :( which normally doesn’t happen in stories.
