Woman: Hon--, you said lone, and followed by its companions. Do you mean the tree?

Man: Nooope. the peeeople?

Woman: Eh?

Man: They hanged the witches, fugitives of injustice.

Woman: Hey, witches isn’t true.

Man: What about you?

Woman: I’m not a witch!

Man: I love it, if you’re one. It’s quite attractive and tempting, as long as you’re seducing only me.

Woman: (Blushes) Eh.

Man: (Laugh) People of the past, are scared with no basis.


Man: Year from 500 until 1101; On this tree, it became the center of raping, serial killing, and massacres.

Woman: Aw...

Man: You’re not a dog.

Woman: It’s bark!

Man: In English, yes. In our Language, aw. Aw! aw aw! Bark! bark bark! C’mon doggy.

Woman: Shit you...

Red lady, white lady, and black lady are wandering around here at night. Their eyes are terrifying. Having and eye contact with them will freeze your body. And they will bring down your soul to grave.

Woman: Hey, I’m wearing white. (Laugh)

Man: You can’t scare me.

Woman: Really?

Man: You are the most beauuutiful woman on this world, for me.

Man: Year from 1790 to 1892, this place became the famous for suicide. A lot of people hanged their selves, to escape life. Nooo, to escape problems.

Woman: (Gulp)

Man: One day, a young man came here, just to past time, despite of the legend. He heard a humming cry from a female, probably the same age at him. His curiosity commanded him to scan and he found a young woman who was tying the rope, a preparation for suicide.

The young man’s perspective to life commanded himself to jump and grab that woman. You lady, if you want to suicide, then let me have a taste of your body. It such a waste, a beautiful like you wasting your life, when I’m just drooling to have one like you, he said.

Woman: (smiling) And the young woman replied, I hate people like you. You just love to abuse women. We are not tools. We have rights also.

Man: ’cause that young man had seen the rashes on her skin, Hey, if you’re going to say goodbye to your life, then why not come with me and be mine. I’ll bring you back to my hometown far from this place. You can do whatever you like, your dreams, with your own known freedom.

Woman: (Laugh) You’re just a brat like me.

Man: (Smile) I may be a brat, but, we live in different kind of world, and I want you to experience what kind of life I have. And I promise you’ll enjoy it.

Woman: She had been confused by that time, take care with me, she replied and cried.

I’d really hate you that time, you really did brainwash me. But, somehow, I’d felt, I could like you.

Man: Well, you did live of what kind of life you wish for.

Woman: Tch. But by the time, I gain more knowledge. I’m speechless—how much you try hard to pursue me with your words—so that you can have me once more. (Smiling) You even kneeled.

Man: If I didn’t; then, I’m just an empty shell...

Woman: Geez, by this tree, the center of attraction of this big mall—I’m happy to see our children’s smile. It’s really funny to see what was known terrifying became, the center of attraction.

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...

mcase: I really enjoyed this story. Felt drawn to Cami as a genuine person. Great characters with funny honest perspective. Many subplots made this continually interesting. I was never bored and thought the overall plot was intriguing. I do wish that some elements had been excluded, such as some extrane...

belljean: Enjoyed the story . Could not wait to see what happen next. The plot was good and carried out in a smooth but exciting was. There were some missing words and some extra words. Spelling needed to be checked.

biangeli: I really like your work because it's very in-depth to the depression and suicide experience. The pacing and cause-and-effect chain of events were excellent as well, though I think you should also be a little more creative on some explanations of events (i.e. when Katie was explaining about the Al...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Pille: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo. Even though the story had some loopholes in some places, it made me contemplate failing in chemistry, because I was up all night glued to my mobile screen rather ...

Jordan Young: *ALERT FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Where to start? I don't know how to sum up this review, this story was absolutely sensational. Brilliant. Flawless.

missmary: This story sucked me in from the start and kept me reading when I should have been in bed. My only disappointment is how it ended. While I have nothing against Sherlock/John pairings- and this was well done- I kind've hoped it would come out a little different just for a change. Still, this was w...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...
