Nice work; the translation was a bit awkward in places, but I could still follow the story with no trouble.

The interactions with the mysterious ghost are well done. I look forward to reading more! :thumbr:

I really enjoyed the balance between internal dialog and actual conversation. Also, much of the descriptive writing had a poetic feel which I also enjoyed. As for constructive criticism, I'm sure there's much to say but as a beginner I'll leave that to somebody better qualified for now.
Keep creating fella.

this was nice, it kept my interest. some reason, not sure why, but it had a Chinese vibe to it even though it was translated.
