That was so devestating! I really did get choked up by the last paragraph. I guess reading the books didn't really make me feel bad for Merope - but that last paragraph really made her so real to me. *sigh* Damn Tom Riddle!
The one thing that puzzled me was the line about contacts. Voldemort was born around the early 1920s and contacts hadn't been invented yet.
I just thought to tell you. :]
Author's Response: Thank you!! Oh, and about the contacts, my bad! *goes to change* There, it's better. Thank you for the great (and first) review! I'm glad it made someone emotional.
