She travels to New York City, to meet the man her mother warned her about all her life, her father, Gaelan. From the legal age of eighteen, Lylie was forced to work for Gaelan as his messenger. Although as time passes, work begins to become more and more exhausting; Lylie meets the man she believes is the love of her life and things take a turn. Now Lylie wants control, but will she live long enough to rule, and if so, will her father let her? Travel into the mind of Lylie throughout her life, her troubles, her work, and her pain. From lust to love. See how this last deal, will be the deal of a life time. Will she live long enough to get the life she always wanted?

Chapter 1

She drags herself out of the water, gripping the rocks as she pulls her body up. Her loose dress sticks to her legs. She begins to run, nearly falling as each foot slips on the rocks and mucky grass. Helicopters and sirens wail in the distance. She pushes herself to run faster, her feet slide in the mucky grass with each pounding foot, her breath appearing and disappearing in the cold night.

She stops for a second to catch her breath. The area around her is bright, the shine from nearby posts, the bridge, and the lighthouse, all cast an imaginary arrow at her location. Her lungs hurt with each deep breath she takes and her heart beats in her ears, making it hard for her to hear. She coughs a little and breathes deeply, knowing she has to continue.

There are more sirens, more lights, more action, and nowhere for her to hide. She begins to moan as a pain throbs in her side. She could hear men yelling, dogs barking, the lights are guiding them to her. She runs toward the Little Red Lighthouse, knowing this is exactly where they would look, she still runs toward it in need of a break. The ground is getting lighter, less mucky, her feet don’t sink in as much, and it is now a lot easier for her to run. Pushing the door open, she falls to the ground and kicks it shut. She lies there trying to catch her breath, shivering, mascara leaking down her face, dirt and grass decorate her legs; she breathes in through her nose and out through her mouth.

She knew she didn’t do it, why would she? She loves this man. Why was she running? Why was she putting herself in this situation where she looks like the bad guy? Who could have done this? Did they know who he was? Or was it just a ploy of getting her attention, getting her to confess her sins? These thoughts circled her mind like a shark would its prey. If she gets caught, the sweet taste of revenge will never touch her lips. Running was her only option.

Sirens grow closer. She inhales and prepares herself for a battle, one she knows she will lose.

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

Stephen Rodriguez: Oh My God! Thank you for giving the ending to Chuck we have all wanted since we left them on that beach almost 4 years ago! I would sincerly hope that if a new Chuck season or movie are made that Zachary Levi reads your story as a guide for the story line! Thank You! I was glued to my tablet and ...

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...

Caitlin E. Jones: Only through the first three chapters of this piece, but StrawberrySunrise never disappoints! The characterization is stellar and the world-building, so unique and intriguing for a story of its kind. Elias provides a strong lead voice, lending his perspective to a tumultuous fantasy world and its...

TruffleQueen: This piece of writing is more than just letters across a screen. Its more than just 40 chapters. Its a different world. And in that world, you get to experience so many things. I mean, you're practically sucked in there and once you just keep reading it gets harder and harder to get out. This st...
