On Her Own
A great story that I enjoyed reading. The author really made the characters come alive in the story and I was able to identify with each one. Very enjoyable story.

I have known many young women in situations similar to this. Unfortunately, most of those young women couldn't handle themselves anywhere near as cool and collected as your main character. I loved your story. As I read it, I thought about some of those women I know and how much better they would have been acting more like Sara. Excellent work!
