I had the idea for a very short story, maybe one page long (it's supposed to be written as if it's an anonymous letter to the police). I started writing it, getting a rough idea down, but before going back in to change what needed to be changed, I noticed I was having a hard time figuring out who was sympathetic in this, and subsequently it was kind of hard to figure out the tone. A rough outline of the story; - Unnamed view point character (Character 1) has been followed by someone they really don't like (Character 2) for fifteen years. Character 2 refuses to leave them alone despite repeated attempts to get them to. Other people don't see the harm and refuse to help Character 1 get them to leave them alone. - Character 1, desperate and at their wits end after fifteen years, fakes their own death and goes to live somewhere else. - Now distraught Character 2 subsequently kills themselves in the same manner as unnamed Character 1. Are both of them overreacting? Is one of them sympathetic while the other is overreacting? Are both of them sympathetic? What do you guys think?
