Today was one of those slower days, there were no appointments and nobody seemed to suddenly get interested and burst into the gallery wanting to admire the art.
While Annika busied herself with some paperwork, Peter just yawned and switched elbows to lean on.
'You know, the other day…' Started the girl, but then swallowed the rest of the sentence.
'Hm? Something happened?' Turned Peter to face her.
'Nothing. I was just wondering.'
'When we showed Kaemon that evidence the other day. You mentioned how his version of revenge is different from Marion’s.'
'How different revenge can be? I mean 'She flipped a few papers.', one can take revenge different ways?
'Ah, yes.' The guy straightened himself. 'You have some grudge against someone?'
'Not particularly. I was just interested, why the diversity?'
'Good question. I believe it depends on the personality. You see, Mari was hurt so she gathered herself and struck back with all her force, eliminating her opponent.'
'On the other hand, Kaemon just wanted to be left alone, but couldn’t bare the thoughts of maybe being wrong. He thought he unintentionally hurt the other and so that maybe he deserved all the bad things that’d happened to him. So once he confirmed that he did nothing wrong, he just moved on. Imagine how pissed that girl could be for years! Putting so much effort to torture someone but stop getting any response. It’s almost equally cruel.'
'If you put it that way.'
'And I have a friend who’s kinda insane and his way of revenge is all-out assault. You’d say it’s similar to Mari’s, but in reality he’s more heartless when he enters the state of hunting down his enemies. Meaning, he’d wade through even his own friends and loved ones. Now that’s scary. Otherwise he’s the kindest thing you’ll ever see, but I have to admit, even I’m kind of afraid of him sometimes. There was that time when I ended up on the opposite side of him and I shred a sweat to get out of his way.'
'I wouldn’t want to meet him.'
'And how about you?'
'What’s your style of revenge?'
'Quick and silent.'
Peter didn’t dare asking more, he thought it’s better to resume to boredom rather than having his throat sliced right there and then.
Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...
ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...
RodRaglin: Sounds like an interesting story, LesAnne.Here are some things you might want to consider when you revise this draft."Show don't tell."

MelanyFrey: This is a contemporary “teenage” (yet not only “teenage”) story that covers a lot of important topics, such as child abuse, peer pressure etc. The story is complex and deep, yet a little predictable. You did a great characterization, so that, from the beginning of the story, I was familiar with t...

Madison O'Neal: Although the book may be good the grammar is horrid and it's hard to concentrate on the story when having to correct the mistakes of the author I suggest the author go back and correct things to improve the enjoyment of the book overall and the app should proof read things before they are publish...
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. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

The German autumn which was so different with the autumn in the other four season countries, especially in Anggia's eyes when her heart-movin...
PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...
