My short story ‘Innocent’ is written in the second person, a difficult form of narrative to maintain with credibility.  The character is ‘you’, which I believe is a provocative gesture towards the reader. Many people are put off by this style as they find it difficult to form empathy with the character, especially if they are dark or evil. But this story is not about the character, it asks the reader to consider the meaning of ‘innocence.’ Are you convinced?
