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.

Noelle Anselmo: Jesus H Christ! When I saw this was a genderbent I though it was just gonna be the two main characters, but I was so wrong and I LOVED IT! I had no clue where you were going with it, and I was waiting for the make up, was dreading the possibility of not making up, and just how you had the story u...
Destiny Green: The story was good and something different as a good LGBT story is harder to find. There were some parts that need to move more fluently but overall the writing style and skill is very good. I throughly enjoyed the plot and was excited to read what would happen to the characters.
Jaslyn: I loved reading this so much!! The transformation of Nina's self-esteem was incredible to read, and while I was rooting for Parker halfway through, I was very satisfied when Harrison and Nina finally got everything straight. The side characters were adorable - I especially loved Anna, Richel, Mic...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

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. ...
