Very impressed!

I'm not sure whether the person who reviewed this story with 1 star in each category read the same story that I did, because I found Rot to be gripping and at times chilling, perfect for a horror short story. There are plenty of possession stories out there in the genre, but this is the first time I think I've come across one from the perspective of the demon doing the possessing. The author has managed to get the reader to almost empathize with the demon through humor, but also with the parents of the possessed, as their daughter's condition slowly worsens and they argue over what to do. The ending was rather abrupt, but it does leave the story on a cliff-hanger of sorts, so perhaps a sequel is in the works.

All in all, this is an entertaining story that should please most horror fans.
