“Michelle and the Wedding”

published 13/12/2006

ProAn interesting read, I hope

ConsIt's pretty sad....

Michelle stood up and stretched her arms. She had been drifting in and out of consciousness in the way only a working man - or woman - could. Spending most of her days tap-tap-tapping away on a keyboard had taken it's toll on her, and her attention span was now at the point where she spent most...

Excellent

ProThis is my 69th review.

ConsNow that would be telling!

This is a fictional piece written to be teasing, tempting and a little sexy. It does include sexual imagery but does not include strong language. If you are sensitive to sexual content, don't read on but if you enjoy a bit of a tease or you enjoy a good Mills&Boon read on! A Fruitful Life...

“A Silent Witness.”

published 08/10/2004

ProA new Challenge .

ConsNew territory.

I have toyed with this idea, I am unsure as to how it will come together. The challenge has been accepted so I will begin ..... comments cheerfully recieved. She stood, arms clasped around her body. Her breathing erratic. Silent tears coursing down over her face. Her nightie damp, bathed in sweat...

“The Dilemma”

published 18/09/2004

ProIt gave you something to read for a few minutes

ConsYou may have wasted those minutes.

The voice had stopped. The first thing I noticed was the smell. Salt water from the sea, into which the stream below flowed. The sea wasn’t far away from where I stood, in fact a rougher day and I may have even heard it. You could definitely hear the seagulls. Their presence was made well known...

“WRITER'S BLOCK”

published 15/05/2005

ProA cathartic experience for me!

ConsI'm sure you'll tell me!

They say "Write about what you know" ... so I did! Well, the basis for the story came from a real-life experience - everything else I made up! I first wrote it years ago and after much re-writing I'd be interested to hear what you think of it! I gave myself 5 stars just for the hell of it...

“The Futility of War”

published 07/09/2004

ProThe Beach went down so well I thought I would try ...

ConsWhat do you mean you haven't read The Beach

It is quiet this morning nothing moves and there is no sound in the early morning sun, a sun whose rays are dispersed by a light early morning mist that is gently rolling over the fields along the valley floor. I sit and look down the valley. My vantage high on this grassy bank at the head of the...

“CHRISTMAS ROSES”

published 19/12/2005

ProIt's seasonal !

Consit's not particularly cheerful !

Black roses for my faithless love who left on Christmas Day No word , no time , no warning sign , he simply turned away I'd waited in the morning with my love-struck eyes aglow And never thought on Christmas Eve my love would treat me so Red roses he had given me a few short hours before I'd...

“Ade”

published 07/10/2004

ProInteresting story methinks. Some degree of humour

ConsNOT recommended reading if you don't like profanit...

Darkness was closing in fast. The days and nights had somehow slipped by quickly despite the current events that had passed recently. Jim sat quietly in his study, a single table lamp being the only source of light. It was clear he was deep in thought, barely blinking as he lifted a glass of...

“Snow White”

published 18/08/2004

ProI'm very proud of this

Consit's a tad long

Julia, or Jules as she was better known as, curled up on her beanbag, and flicked open the photo album she found under her bed. It was the time she went to Paris with her parents 4 years ago. That was a good holiday-they went before Christmas and came back on Christmas Eve. She turned the page...

“Unfinished Business”

published 27/09/2004

ProYou may enjoy reading it

ConsMy first story

This is my first story, I hope you like it. I am nervous about people reading it, as I know there are a lot of really talanted writers on Ciao. I would really appreciate any comments. "You are not my mother!" John walked to the kitchen where the shouting was coming from. William was shouting at...

ProNone, if you die

ConsIt may hurt

We crawled on our bellies through the inky blackness along the narrow landing, feeling our way. The searing heating of Satan’s breath was pinning us to the floor. Stan, my partner, nudged my boot to tell me he was having to retreat for a moment. Obviously the heavy hose we were dragging had...

“Assassin.”

published 16/04/2005

ProSee story

ConsSee story

I am a killer. I make no bones about it. I kill from ambush. My victim may see me for a very short while but nobody else. And dead men tell no tales. What is it they say, "Life's a jungle, Kill or be killed". Well they are right. I have been a killer as far back as I can remember. I'm good at it...

“Henry, where are you?”

published 18/11/2004

ProThere is a twist in the tale

ConsNone

The light in the room had suddenly turned very dim, Sally looked across to the window the sky had gone dark and threatening "A storm on the way," she told herself, "better get the washing in, hope Henry isn't too long I don't want him caught up in the storm." As she gathered in the washing she...

Not for me

“Members Only”

published 25/05/2004

Pro-

Cons-

To be considered as a possible member of an elite group, one must usually undergo some sort of initiation or tapping. If the nominee makes it through this initiation, then the honor of being a new member is bestowed on him or her. This, however, is not the case in this story. No one needs to be...

“Come Ride With Me...”

published 20/07/2005

ProYou'll probably guess the ending...

Cons...again you'll probably guess the ending

Leanne left the club at 3.30. She was hot and sticky and somewhat frustrated. She'd had yet another bad week at work and had gone out tonight with the sole intention of pulling a guy and having a wild night. Unfortunately for her, all the male losers in the club opted to pull all the other female...
