This chapter blew me away again. Your writing really is phenomenal and Iím sitting here feel amazed and very envious of it ;)

Teddyís feelings regarding Victoire are so complex and well developed Iím sitting here confused as to what he really feels about her. In the present he says ĎI am the hunter.Ď and that appeared to be rather possessive and made me wonder why he wanted to hunt her and then he referred to her as the victim and it got me even more worried about what heís planning on doing to her.

The first few flashbacks were really great and despite them only being a sentence or two they still left such a big impact on me. Teddy didnít seem to abhor her as much as he currently does in those ones though the idea as to why her lips should be red instead of pink made me wonder why. The only idea I could come up with is that red is usually associated with danger and Victoire is a danger to Teddy.

The main flashback at the end was brilliant, as it revealed so much about both of them. First the whole issue with Victoire being so blunt and cold really chilled me and I really want to know why she acts like this and then the next part was the most chilling/shocking/gah worthy part of the chapter. Victoireís really confusing me because when Teddy complimented her beauty she appeared to be pleased about it with her confident tone and then for her to wish that she could be ugly made me wonder whether something happened to her in regards to her looks or whether she was treated differently because of them.

This was another amazing chapter and I hope to get to the rest of the story :D


Author's Response: Aaah thank you for your lovely comments, and thank you so much for coming back to review the other chapters! :D

And that's the point - you're meant to be confused by what they actually feel for each other. I'd like to think of this as love/hate gone terribly awry, both of them pulling and pushing at each other. Both are equally possessive of each other, I think - but Victoire /can/ go off and meet other men, and still have this hold over Teddy.

You're completely right about the red/pink lips scenario - with red being associated with danger, and how dangerous Victoire is to Teddy (and possibly the other way around). The fact that her lips were pink when she was younger also suggests that she was more innocent and then grew darker and more dangerous or something. I don't know, I just wrote it.

I think you're right about being treated differently because of her looks - I didn't really know what I was trying to say with that 'ugly' bit, but I thought it felt right because it was the unpredictable answer and Victoire /is/ unpredictable. Throughout the story, Victoire is completely obsessed with how she looks and how other people should, or do, react to her and her beauty. Teddy constantly refers to it as her shield because she hides behind it.
