    So a shitty cop gets murdered?How boring.I would appreciate a story where an intelligent cop was duped by a pair of intelligent, yet insane twins.This guy was a loser who had it coming.Losers get whats coming to them all the time.This story presents no grandeur.You are better than this.

      While I welcome and appreciate all forms of criticism, I believe you’re way off the mark in this particular instance. Life Is Hell is a tale of ‘demons,’ treachery, weakness and comeuppance. The man is meant to be pathetic/deceptive (though not necessarily stupid), wallowing in self-pity over his infidelity and its appalling consequences. There is obviously a borderline supernatural element linking the horrendous fate he brought upon his twin boys and the twin sisters who descend upon him; as if from hell (there’s even a hint towards possible vampirism). It’s no coincidence that they’re headed home, to Sin City. And let me assure you: In this life it’s very seldom that “losers” actually get what’s coming to them. As an aside, if you’re looking for a morbid battle of wits, I suggest that you browse through the rest of my flash fiction/short stories. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

      Grandeur? This story explores the complex dualities of life and death, heaven and hell, love and hatred, suffering and ecstasy – the list goes on and on. I daresay you missed the entire point of this story. As with all good writing, you must not focus solely on the superficial elements of the narrative, but rather strive to see beneath the surface – only then, once you have looked into the depths, can you hope to understand it. In this case, you obviously have not. Leaving a misguided “anonymous” comment? Perhaps YOU are better than THAT.

    One hell of a story there, mate. Moody stuff. I hope to see more of these nightmarish twins!
