This was created 10 years ago when the 12" macbook pro only had a screen resolution of 1024x768.  I have since lost the original file and do not plan on recreating this piece because it is unfortunately the most popular piece in my gallery and the one of which I'm least proud. Sorry. 
Batman Beyond
But the apple looks so delicious!

Love the mood of the scene.

First off, don't listen to the haters. Writing is difficult and anyone who at least tries deserves credit.

The story has potential but I recommend trying to show us more about the characters and settings instead of telling us. The first four paragraphs are exposition that could easily be turned into active scenes (e.g., show us an instance where the main character didn't get along with someone and how your character reacts to this; show the character reading a book that gives visual details about Tarrow; What kind of book is it? Old, dusty tome or a more subtle appearance? What's an instance from his life where he felt her presence before?; You could show him in church and write out the thoughts he's having while a priest talking; etc, etc). In other words, try to create scenes that show us the character traits you want us to know, otherwise it feels like a movie where no one but the narrator talks.

Also, metaphor is your friend. There are some good visual descriptions here, but a metaphor or simile every once in a while will make the imagery stick like the stench of eating a raw onion.

Good luck!
