Twisted. That is exactly how I would describe this short story. it is the perfect tale if you are looking for something dark and menacing, but you don't know much about the main character. I just wish that there were more details about the characters out their relationship. As you read the story, your heart strings will be pulled out...literally. ...more

I read this beautiful little short in Tricks, Mischief and Mayhem (which I have not yet finished) a while ago. The imagery this story gives is very vivid and I actually find myself thinking about it regularly.

Super duper short, first and foremost. If it were printed, it would be a few pages, tops.
Having said that, I really loved this little tale. Very well written.
