  • Hi Peggy,
    Please develop it. It will be a heart-wrenching read…I mean that in a good way.

  • Thank a ton, Ana! More power to your pen! Keep the oil burning. Be safe. πŸ™‚

  • Hi Jan,
    Thank you for your wonderful comments and the read! Sorry for the delayed response. I am thrilled to know that this chapter lived upto your expectations. Yes, Ava is alive…and there’s more coming up on the road. The man who died…I think you know who he is. I introduced him in the last to last chapter. But more will come up on that. Do…[Read more]

  • Hi Peggy,
    Thank you for your lovely words and the read! I am so happy to know that you found this chapter thrilling and that the suspense managed to grab your attention. Yes, Ava is alive…I think many readers might have guessed it somewhere along the way. I wanted to explore the scope of lightning and am glad that I have succeeded with the same.…[Read more]

  • Hi Sudha,
    Thank you so much for dropping by and your wonderful comments! My apologies for the delay in reciprocation. I am thrilled to know that you loved the atmosphere building and the action going on in this episode. The ‘sky crepitating…’ line, well sometimes some good ideas just find their way to me. πŸ˜› I will take the ‘up’ out. And yes,…[Read more]

  • Hi Sudha,
    The one thing I love about your stories is their piquance. This one was no different. I loved the sarcasm, and how masterfully you delve into the dirty gutter of political corruption and double standards. It was almost as if you had a report of it all. The best part was how real it all sounded and that’s the irony. Athena comes across as…[Read more]

  • Hi Srivalli,
    This was a fun read! I have come across several ghost stories this month, but this one was different in terms of treatment and characters. I loved the dialogue flow. Anna was a clear stand-out! Just caught one small blip – ‘” Poor…” The inverted coma needs to be facing inward. But that’s no biggie. Loved it! Thank you for sharing!

  • Hi Ana,
    I cannot tell you how relieved I am to be able to comment on your story! I read it two days ago but due to the ‘ad’ problem and also some issues with the comment box, I just wasn’t able to. I am thrilled now because I can finally tell you how engrossing your story was. Crime fiction is your forte, no one can take that away from you. But…[Read more]

  • Hi Srivalli,
    Are you sure she escaped? 😉 Thank you for the read and your tremendously supportive comments as always! What comes next…I don’t know yet. But hope to hear from you again next time. Be safe. ❤️

  • Hi Jes,
    Thank you for dropping by and such lovely comments! I am thrilled to know that my humble story managed to keep you engaged. I was trying hard to imagine what might be the reactions of the kidnapper and his captive when they see each other. I am glad that the ‘prey and predator’ line managed to get my feelings across. Hope to hear from you…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    Wow! That was intense! I think your imagery of pain and the car wreck was really graphic and one could almost stand there and see it all happening. I loved the line about the ‘harsh, copper coloured blood’. It would have been great if someone really possessed such powers for real. Wonder how they would have used them?
    I was a little…[Read more]

  • Hi Ana,
    Thank you for such amazing words and the read! I am thrilled to know that the style agreed with you. The podcast bit…well, I will just say you will have to watch out for more. But there are incidents in the story that are kind of a hint towards what’s to come…all the answers lie in the earlier episodes. 😉 Sorry for sounding so…[Read more]

  • Hi Charles,
    Thank you for dropping by and your kind words! I am glad the ending hooked you. I had no idea the word ‘schlep’ is a Yiddish word. Maybe you could enlighten me why it doesn’t fit this context. I would love to learn. Thank you again…be safe.

  • Hi Seyi,
    Thank you for sharing your opinion. Hope to hear from you again next month. Be safe.

  • Hi Seyi,
    Hope you are doing well? Thank you for dropping by and as always, such amazing comments! Trust me, I learnt those words not too long ago. I guess one great thing about this group is what we get to learn from each other’s stories. For instance, you have a talent for punching dialogues; tart and real descriptions. I really love that about…[Read more]

  • Hi Catherine,
    Thank you for the read and such lovely comments! I am glad to know that the tension worked for you. Ava is the one who started the story and appears in the very first part of the series (The Price). But that was seven parts ago. So, just thought I will reintroduce her again in this part. I am glad you liked the last line. Hope to…[Read more]

  • Hi Cheryl,
    Thank you for your wonderful comments and the read! I am thrilled to know that my story managed to grab your attention. I am not an expert at writing fight sequences. That’s something I love about your story – your action sequences, your descriptions are just inspiring. Thank you once again…be safe.

  • Hi Catherine,
    This was such a heartbreaking tale! I loved the characters you have sketched here. So many stories remain unfinished and we store in our closets in the boxes ‘ What if’s’. Your descriptions are so real…I love the market, stall and the market imagery you have painted with your words. I especially loved these lines, “The German…[Read more]

  • Hi Peggy,
    This was such a sad story…I felt a lump in my chest towards the end. Sometimes relationships can be complicated. One never realises what is gone until it’s gone. Your images just moves one and one cannot help but ponder how Allie managed to live in such a squalid place in her condition. I especially loved your camp images. They were so…[Read more]
