Well crafted, titled, and illustrated, Annie! You did wonderfully and I’m very proud of you!

Suggestion: add tags. You can only do this on the PC, because: #freakinMedium. On the page with your story, click Edit, then click the Publish button that replaced it to see a dropdown area where you can type tags. Start typing in a tag (Medium will make suggestions as you type), which can only be letters, numbers, and spaces because: #freakinMedium. I suggest “Fiction” and… uh, getting suggestions from a mystery fiction writer like Lizella Prescott. Then click the Publish button at the bottom of the dropdown and voila! People who search on tags are more likely to find your story.

And people SHOULD find your story, because it’s very well done!
