    I like how you built the story out of more dialogue than description, letting the characters speak for themselves. Dialing back the heavy metaphor in the rest of the piece would have helped the really elegant passages stand out more the way they deserve to.

  6. Nathan says:

    Your narrator’s observations and the glib way she speaks made me like her right away. Some of the dialogue felt more focused on furthering the storyline than on conveying a natural conversation. Like when she described the pudding to her friend who could see what she was eating.

  7. Asha Rajan says:

    You did a great job of building the dynamic between these characters through their own words (also, I love chia seeds).

    Well build up, Kalpanaa. Liked the end. The details in the story makes it more relatable. Some dialogues are really interesting, like this one: “Unfortunately I’m like this with or without alcohol.”

  9. Indrani says:

    Lovely! Hope it has a happy end. 🙂
