Hands entwined, they walked through the woods.

Lisa watched from behind a tree, revenge in her eyes and a dagger in her hand.

Welcome to Trifecta. I like the dark side of this writing. You did an excellent job. I could see Lisa behind the tree and thought, “Uh oh, someone is in trouble!”

Shailaja V · February 14, 2014 at 2:30 am

Thank you, Sara! Glad to be here. Hoping to stick around 🙂

Draug · February 14, 2014 at 4:10 pm

I am actually surprised by the twist myself. I started out all romantic and then something took over 🙂 Thanks, Ivy!

Shailaja V · February 17, 2014 at 2:33 am
