I almost thought that the person approaching Teddy was Dom due to the differences yet her being similar to the memories of Victoire. It was only when he started talking about moving I realised it was in fact Victoire. I really liked the mystery that surrounded their meeting as it matched what Teddyís been thinking of her so far.

Itís strange how Iíve got used to thinking of Victoire as this almost demon like person due to the flashbacks and Teddyís thoughts about her, yet when we get around to actually meeting her she doesnít feel like that. In fact, she seems to be rather innocent and it was due to the way she said hullo. Ah Iím so confused about my feelings towards Victoire but I suppose itís a good thing as I can relate to Teddyís actions towards her then.

Itís almost as if Teddy views Victoire as two different people. Thereís the one in the present and who weíve just seen and he seemed to be able to bear her then. Then after she left there was this line ĎAnd now I am alone, and searching for you.í and it made me wonder was he searching for himself or perhaps another version of Victoire different to the one we had just seen. I usually donít like ambiguity but it really worked well here.

Ok I did not anticipate the ending. Now that Teddyís jumped it makes sense to me as he had been showing signs throughout the story that he was psychotic and I suppose thatís why heís drawn to Victoire as sheís psychotic too. Ah Iím going to have to read on and find out whether he died or not!


Author's Response: You were right the first time! Sorry! It was actually Dom, but you could infer as anyone who /wasn't/ Victoire. I know, I'm sorry. This was my first time writing in this waffly, slightly flowery style, and the thing I was most worried about was whether the readers would even understand what was going on - vague metaphors and ridiculous imagery can sometimes means nobody has a clue what's going on. I was worried about this.

Sorry about that! I love ambiguity, so I thought I'd go a bit mental with it. No names. No nothing. Just excess amounts of flowery language and annoyingly pretentious choppy sentences and Roman numerals and repeated, italicised sections.

Sorry, sorry, sorry! Thanks for the review though!
