A woman finds herself in an uncomfortable situation.

A pair of wolfish eyes are unwilling to leave her alone.

She hopes and waits that the staring will stop.

But the man has a good reason to gawk. What could it be?

Ten fingers, ten toes, twenty reasons to avoid his gaze. I counted them with care, assuming he would tire and leave me to my eccentricities. But he waited, a wolfish greed gleaming in his eyes, marking its territory upon me. I was nothing yet everything, another half-pretty face cast away in an ocean of faces, […]

  1. Wow, what a surprise ending. You are an expert in this. It’s such a reverse, contrary to our expectation. LOL. I sometimes read news with women killers. How sad. They find that their existence has no exit and decide that the only solution is to kill. How sad.

    • This was a complete twist at the end. Though we view killers as people with no morals or conscience, there are several who end up in situations where they find that murder is the only option. Little do they realize that it’s the beginning of more tragedies. Thank you, Haoyan, for your always wise and unique comments. 🙂

  2. What a twist once again! It felt very uncomfortable, both the man staring and the woman enjoying the attention after all, like she doesn’t care she killed someone. Really great writing 🙂

    • It really was a twisted game. Thank you for enjoying the story and the switcheroo at the end. I appreciate it. 🙂

  3. I should have known there’d be some craziness at the end of this one! You really did a fine job with the characters (as always) and had me convinced the barfly guy was stalking this innocent lass. Oh well, what do I know? 😀 I love your stories, Terveen. Your imagination is exquisitely and delightfully twisted. More, please! 🙂

    • Haha! Thank you so much, Mike. That is an awesome comment. My mind doesn’t really follow any pattern of thought. It’s like static going on in there with bursts of images. Feeds the imagination well. I appreciate the brightness your words offer me. 🙂
