A/N: I just wanted to warn everyone that this chapter was EXTREMELY upsetting to write. Especially with the recent days' tragedy I know that violence may be the last thing you want to read about. ...

it was perfect.
just violent enought to show how damaged she is...but not so violent that im like, freaking out.
perfect chapter, once again.
Author's responseThat's definitely good to know. I freaked out a bit when I realized I was going to post it, mostly because I've had it written for ages and it just seemed like a horrible time to finally share it with my readers. I hate upsetting anyone. And as for the "perfect chapter" comment. Thank you! Wow.
- Wow. Right on the money.
I'm taking (and about to finish) a Domestic Violence course for my criminal forensic major. We've had so many women come in and repeat that exact story, but these women were survivors.
Very, very good. Well done.
Author's responseThank you! It is definitely good to hear that at least some of what I wrote mirrored the true stories of others. It horrible that things like this truly happen in society today. I think I owe this chapter to spending way too much time watching shows like CSI and Law & Order.
- It definitely shows that you put much thought into your writing by how real to life it is. I also love how you are taking things slowly with Andy and Lindsey. I am enjoying your writing more and more everyday. Keep up the wonderous work!
Author's responsePersonally, I think with a lot of my stories I focus too much on getting into the relationship, not so much on the characters outside of it. Developing the characters before developing a relationship was on of my main goals with this story. I'm glad to know it's working.
- Well done for portraying the horror of the situation without over-doing the graphic violence. A difficult thing to do, but you just seem to be able to pull it off with ease.
And no wonder she is so uber fucked up.
I just love this.
Author's responseThere's that word Uber again. haha I love it. Although I do have to say that my favorite word of all time is eloquent, not sure why, other than I just like how it sounds. As for the violence in this chapter, I rewrote it alot before finding a balance I found suitable. I've pretty much fallen in love with reading all the reviews everyone leaves! They definitely get me exciting to post the next chapter!
