Chapter 1


"No!!!" The girl shouted as she watched the love of her life fall off the cliff. "No..." She sobbed, sliding down until she was on her knees and staring into space. She was worn out, tired, dirty, but none of that mattered right now. All that mattered in her life was him, and he's gone now. 

"Alicia!" Someone shouted from out in the distance. The girl, Alicia, turned half-heartedly to attempt to find whoever called her name. There, she saw Brian running towards her. He was the brother of the love of her life, a brother to her as well. He stopped in front of her when he saw the ragged state of Alicia, the evident tear tracks running down her face. 

"No, no, no. NO!" He shouted in disbelief in the end when he looked around and noticed that his brother was not there. "NO! This wasn't supposed to happen! You two should have been perfectly fine and smiling when I came for you two!" 

Alicia interjected. "But that didn't happen! He's gone and I'm obviously not smiling! You miscalculated!" 

"Do you think I wanted to have miscalculated?! HE WAS MY BROTHER!" Brian shouted back to Alicia. 

"Maybe you wanted to get rid of him! HE WAS ALWAYS BETTER THAN YOU! YOU WERE ALWAYS IN HIS SHADOW!" Alicia yells at Brian, caught up in the moment. 

"MAYBE I DID! SO WHAT?!" Brian yelled at Alicia. "He got everything! He got the girl, the praise, everything. I didn't get the girl, I got compared to every single day of my life. He was Golden Boy, I was the black sheep!" 

"What do you mean, he got the girl?" Alicia asks incredulously. 

"I have always loved you, Alicia. Even before he did."

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
