I was confused by what he said because of the language barrier. What did he mean by 'make me remember'? Well I wasn't going to stick around to find out... Acting quickly I hit him in the family jewels. His eyes bulged in shock and a second later he let out a loud grunt bending over in pain. Without a second thought I booked it and ran. I knew I wouldn't be able to outrun him so my only change was to hide. Seeing a car parked a few blocks away a light bulb went off in my head and I carefully slid under the car laying as flat as possible. After minutes of silence I let out soft sigh of relief thinking I was in the clear. Until I heard almost shark like footsteps circle the car I was under. My hairs stood on end and my breath caught in the back of my throat when everything suddenly went quiet. I slowly turned my head and saw two bright green eyes staring back at me. He was bent down lookin under the car; at this moment all I could thing was... 'Oh Fuck'. "Found you," he whispered with a wicked smirk on his face as two large hands suddenly wrapped around my ankles. Instantaneously I began thrashing and kicking only to be dragged out from under the car. [100,000+ words]

(1875) NOTE: ADDRESSED TO THE READER. In offering this book to you, I have no Preface to write. I have only to request that you will bear in mind certain established truths, which occasionally escape your memory when you are reading a work of fiction. Be pleased, then, to remember (First): That the actions of human beings are not invariably governed by the laws of pure reason. (Secondly): That we are by no means always in the habit of bestowing our love on the objects which are the most deserving of it, in the opinions of our friends. (Thirdly and Lastly): That Characters which may not have appeared, and Events which may not have taken place, within the limits of our own individual experience, may nevertheless be perfectly natural Characters and perfectly probable Events, for all that. Having said these few words, I have said all that seems to be necessary at the present time, in presenting my new Story to your notice. W. C. London, February 1, 1875. ~
(1888) Fruen fra Havet Translated by Eleanor Marx Aveling Inspired by the ballad Agnete og Havmanden, this drama is notable in the Ibsen corpus for introducing the portrayal of Hilde Wangel who is again portrayed in Ibsen's later play The Master Builder. This symbolic play is centred on a lady called Ellida. She is the daughter of a lighthouse keeper, and grew up where the fjord met the open sea; she loves the sea. She is married to Doctor Wangel, a doctor in a small town in West Norway (in the mountains). He has two daughters (Bolette and Hilde) by his previous wife, and he and Ellida had a son who died as a baby. This put big strains on the marriage. Wangel, fearing for Ellida's mental health, has invited Arnholm, Bolette's former tutor and now the headmaster of a school, in hopes that he can help Ellida. DRAMATIS PERSONAE Doctor Wangel. Ellida Wangel, his second wife. Bolette, Hilde (not yet grown up), his daughters by his first wife. Arnholm (second master at a college). Lyngstrand. Ballested. A Stranger. Young People of the Town. Tourists. Visitors. (The action takes place in small fjord town, Northern Norway.)

(1909) To My Dear Old Friend THE COMTESSE DE GUERBEL (Genevi鑦e Ward)
When Lily stumbles across the ambitious young artist Andrien Charron at a grand masquerade ball at the Sylvain estate, she is intrigued by the hunger burning in his gaze. Regardless of their shared appreciation for the articulation of beauty, of the richness of the visible world, regardless that he makes something warm bloom inside her heart, she should have stepped back and turned away. She should not have led him to the hedge maze. She should not have risked that small lie. Lies are double-edged weapons. They path the way for enchanted evenings—and perhaps also the fulfilment of tragic destinies.
(1898) A Story of Adventure Off the California Coast This is to be a story of a battle, at least one murder, and several sudden deaths. For that reason it begins with a pink tea and among the mingled odors of many delicate perfumes and the hale, frank smell of Caroline Testout roses. There had been a great number of debutantes "coming out" that season in San Francisco by means of afternoon teas, pink, lavender, and otherwise. This particular tea was intended to celebrate the fact that Josie Herrick had arrived at that time of her life when she was to wear her hair high and her gowns long, and to have a "day" of her own quite distinct from that of her mother.--Chapter 1
Dmitri Gurov works in a Moscow bank. He is under 40, married has a daughter and two sons. Unhappy in his marriage and the monotony and meaninglessness of his life, he is frequently unfaithful and considers women to be of "a lower race". While vacationing in Yalta, he sees a young woman walking along the seafront with her little Pomeranian, and endeavors to make her acquaintance. The lady, Anna Sergeyevna, is also unhappily married and vacationing without her spouse. Anna and Dmitri soon commence an affair, and spend most of their time together, often walking and taking drives to the nearby village of Oreanda . Though she is expecting her husband to come to Yalta, he eventually sends for her to come home, saying that something is wrong with his eyes. Gurov sees her off at the station. As they part, both feel that they would never see each other again, and that their affair is over. Returning to Moscow, to his loveless marriage, and to his daily routine, working by day and clubbing by night, Gurov expects to soon forget young Anna; to his surprise, her memory haunts him.

On the ruse of going to St. Petersburg to take care of some business, he sets off to her town to find her. Learning the location of the family's residence from a hotel porter, he finds the house, only to realize that it would be futile to intrude. In despair, he rationalizes that Anna has probably forgotten him and found someone else, and heads back to his hotel. In the evening, he remembers having seen a
This is the story of a young orphan who knew she had to fight in order to become someone and faced life and death while at it....
I met her not knowing she's actually my mom. This is a fiction of all fiction, but it is a kind of fiction that is synonymous with reality. Rihanna could have been my lover if not for the sense of nature intro and manipulation of interest. It is a tough story, as well a probability
