Marked Part II: The Phantom

Part I

“What! Who said that? Where are you? Show yourself?”

“Nads! You are hilarious. I suspect though your antics don't get a chuckle out of Matron.”

  1. dang. very nice. you set the tension, give me plenty of questions...nice work on the dialogue as well...

  2. I wonder whether Nads will ever learn her lesson. However from the sound of the company there a bit of a feisty spirit may come in useful...if she survives.

  3. Nice and interesting!! It keeps one wondering!! Awaiting for more!!

  4. Very suspenseful makes me want more.

  5. Cant wait to read where it is headed... Nice write-up LaTonya.

  6. I agree with Brian the tension and the dialogue are fantastic
