I just read the nine chapters you have posted, and they look like a pretty good start to the story. It's very intense, and I love how you set Sophine and Anne into very similar circumstances, despite their large status gaps. There are a few things that you could work on, however.   The spelling, grammar, and capitalization could use a bit of work.

The story's great, and I'll definitely be waiting to see how it plays out:) A few things, though. At the beginning of each chapter, you could include the name of the speaking character in the title. It takes a minute to figure out who's talking. This isn't as much of a problem with Alec, but Sophine and Anne have incredibly similar styles of speaking. Also, dividing the first few chapters into paragraphs would help with the flow of the piece. It's very good, though:)

This is very intense for something that's short. One thing I noticed is that you need to separate the dialouge from the descriptions. I used to do the same thing and it's hard to think of when you get a thought going and you just want to keep writing. For example: "Come on, Anne," she said choking back sobs. "in you go." I hessitated for a few moments, but finally climbed into the cold earth. See what I mean? The story is good though.

Sorry that did not format right. After the dialouge just hit enter to separate the talking from what happens next.

I can't wait to see this story play out! But a couple things that I noticed: your chapter lengths feel a bit short to me; if you could add some more details or action to beef them up it would really help.
