This is powerfully written, a brilliant retelling of the "losing" side.
This powerful message kept me spellbound. Good introspection of the idol-worshipping priestess.

Spectacular writing! You brought out just what a witch Jezebel really was. Now I understand why Elijah ran for his life.

Congratulations indeed. An awesome piece of writing. I so like to see Bible stories so powerfully brought to life

You brought this Biblical event to life. I could see, feel, touch and hear the story as it unfolded. Congratulations on your well-deserved recognition.
It's easy to see why this placed so highly. I liked not only the story but the unusual way you used your dialogue tags/introductions. It made for a powerful, but restrained presentation. Congratulations on your EC!
