Heartbreaking, but vivid!

Wow! This story hit me right in the gut; a visceral and emotional impact that I didn't see coming. I'm not well-versed in the horror genre, so I wasn't sure what to expect with "Emily," but I found this piece quite powerful. Gabriel's terror leaped off the page and immediately pulled me into the narrative, which was brief, by necessity.

Technically speaking, there are a few run-on sentences, but they did not deter from my enjoyment of the piece. I also think the introduction could be expanded just a bit, to better build the tension before the action begins.

The title is both heartbreaking and perfect. Loved the description of the fire and how it contrasted with Gabriel's memories of his home.

This is a super quick, super engaging read!
