    Kaycee, great story!

    Can’t decide what’s more shocking, Jite, hating Tore and her father supporting her or their dad not still accepting Rhoda!

    It is beginning to be interesting.
    I skipped 2, hope to read that later.

    Permit me to do some appraisal here. I noticed a little problem initially. ( although the problem corrected itself toward the end). What I think makes your writing short May be lack of character dialogue. At the beginning, it seems that there is no exchange among your characters. They have good memories in recalling the past a lot. But much of what they recall are not dramatized. You should have infused them with dramatic dialogue. But toward the end of the story that exchange comes it. I believe it is what must have made this episode longer. Please add more dialogue as you write.

    There are some expressions that do not seem good to me. Your narrator, the omniscient one that you have here, that is, a third person narrator who is not part of the story but just an eye witness telling the story; should not call your characters names like ‘dad’ and ‘mum’. That should be left for the characters to do. Whenever I read it like that I begin to imagine that it was one of the characters talking directly. The narrator should just call them ‘their father’ or ‘their dad’, ‘their mum’ or ‘their mother’. This shows that it is a third person narrator talking.

    Now look at this statement

    “What kind of useless child have you given me God?” Mum wailed to no one in particular.

    This is just to illustrate what I just said above. But there is more to it. Their mum was directly addressing God here. Characters talk to imaginary person. It is allowed. From her statement we understood she is talking to God. Therefore, that other statement ( mum wailed to no one imp articulate) is needless. Everyone understands that it is a direct address to God and not to anyone around her.

    Then a few mistakes in tense. It is a story told in past tense. Which is good. But look at this:

    She knew there was no way their mother would go back on her words. She usually never does…

    That last sentence here mixes up the tense. I think ” she usually never did” would been a better expression.

    If you noticed in my comment I used the words “I think” and “it seems”. This is to show that it is just my personal value judgement based on the little I know about writing. You the writer may have your reasons for writing the way you did. What I said May not be the objective judgement.
