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.

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]

(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).

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.

(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
