Um, Wow. I'm going to need a few minutes to come back from that. (In a good way) It was so emotional and strong. I LOVED the imagery in this one-shot. "Time floats over me like a mellow, damp cloud of cigarette smoke." was one of my favorite lines in this story. I can feel her pain and agony in this story. I can literally feel the inner turmoil she is feeling from whatever was going on in her life. It was great.

I am confused as to what was actually going on. Who was the dark figure from the forbidden forest? Was it a vampire? That is what I first thought when Scorp mentioned she wouldn't eat and then she was afraid he won't look at her the same if she voiced her true problems. But then after I had read the entire story I started to think that maybe the dark figure was Death. The way she was not saved and how he kept calling to her. Hmmm???

Was Scorp just her best friend or did they have thing going on??? And last but not least did she actually die in the end??

These were few questions I had as I read the story. I not sure if you meant for it to be as mind bending as it is. I think it is a wonderful bit of writing but maybe it was your intention to have your readers interpret their own means into the story.

I think this was a great story. I think it would be interesting to know more about what happened or maybe a sequel one-shot in Scorp's point of view.

10/10 from me. It is Great!

Author's Response: Hello Meg! (May I call you that?).

I've had a lot of readers tell me that - it's sort of like a time warp and when you come out, you're like, "Woah!" Maybe that's a good thing? I love that line and I'm so glad it stuck with you! I'm glad that you felt Rose's inner turmoil since that's really what I wanted to convey in this story!

The dark figure is supposed to represent many things (it's a metaphor). It can be a metaphor for her rapist, for the mental effects of the victimization, and yes, for Death - there are many possibilities depending up how you interpret the story.

I'd like to think that, at this point, they were only friends, well, best friends. Well, as for her death, it depends on how you interpret the story - literal or figurative or both. Some of my readers have said yes, she died and others have said that her mental capacities have sort of died.

Oh yes, you're very right! I definitely meant for the readers to interpret the story. I believe that good writing allows you to make your own meaning in the story.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I really appreciate it! :)
