    Hi Shane and Michael

    Thank you very much for your comments.

    Michael the same thing occurred to me the day I submitted - isn't that always the way - so I rewrote it and we shot it based on 12.45am - 2.45ish which was the timeframe for the country it is set in.

    Shane, I have just read your second comment, sadly the day I hope our edit is done but I am so glad the story stayed with you.

    The piece was inspired by an article published in 2017 validating anecdotal evidence on domestic violence. This article explains more: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/24/almost-80-south-korean-men-have-abused-girlfriend-study-claims/

    Ignore my previous comment. Total sh... - nonsense influenced perhaps by having read so many death and destruction stories before it. This story has stayed with me in a way most have not. This story is far too many women' stories.

    One small suggestion. We know why she wants to do do what she does but we don't know why she ever married him, loved him, stayed.

    Hi Karelia,

    This is an interesting story and I like the build throughout. However, having re-read the brief and the timeline, I feel that this might need some extra work to get it to fit since most of the story is set before the announcement.

    Give it another go, it will be worth it.

    I read something not dissimilar to this a little earlier but this is more domestic though in a sense all the more brutal. I just wonder if she would have left him a note or done something so he would be aware of, or pay for in some way, for what he'd put her through... even just throwing a rock through the window with a note attached. I don't think she'd have just wanted him to die in his sleep.

    But nicely written. Quietly moving.
