AWH! I love this chapter so much! Definately my favorite so far, I can see how far along you have come in your writing. The conversation between Mairi and Elise flows so well, it was like I was sitting right there! And I love the background info on Elise, now if I only knew about Mairi... :P Anywho, I cannot wait for the next update! And yay 100 reviews! Also, I start school the 2nd :D Lucky me! So great chapter, you are doing an amazing job!

Ooh, I liked this chapter. Finally, we're learning something about Ellie's past life. I actually never considered what happened to her father, but now that I know about it, I feel so sad for him because he still loved their mom so much. Aww. :( Poor guy.

I could imagine this being a book already. It's so well written. It's very intriguing. I can't find any flaws with it. It's descriptive and leaves you wanting for more. Good luck in getting this published. I hope to see it at a shelf in a bookstore some day so that i could buy it.

Lol, I usually wait until the last NIGHT to start writing essays. But I'm free until the 27th. Two months after the amazing Germs concert. Rambling.
I definitely didn't want this chapter to end. This story is like nourishment, ha-ha. You want to keep going until you're full.
I want to know why the father left! I thought it had something to do with Buddy, but there's quite an age gap between 5-10, or unless it was going on for a long time... Don't leave me wondering like this, I'm distraught XD

The ending of this chapter was so sad. So much emotion going on. I like the conversation between Mairi and Elise.
Hope you'll finish your essay! I know how it feels to leave summer homework until the last minute. XD
"In the corner of the room, a bed was pushed up against the wall, it’s red and gray plaid sheets all twisted and messy." its.
"Well, technically, it is partof your personality…” part of.
This was more of Mairi’s personality then I had seen in a long time-" than.
“How can you admit that she’s never even there for you, that she never even triesto be, and still say that she cares?” tries to.

Why do i get the feeling Mairi is not long for this world? i liked how Mairi was starting to get the weeniest bit interested in Elise...cool! oh and happy 100th review!
| sophiesix 8/13/09 . chapter 16
"Guts would be spilled- figuratively, and maybe, just maybe, literally." love that! Mairi's house and the guy on the sofa were both kinda chilling - cool! Wonder how long their pact is going to last...
| Brenda Agaro 8/13/09 . chapter 16
Good description about Mairi's house. I like the atmosphere you created.
Best wishes in your new school year! :D
"Instead of the simply “no” I had been hoping for, I was met with her quick temper." simple.
"“And it would be…?” I asked finally her, urging her on in an unenthusiastic way." I finally asked her.

FP is being a rebel for a while...
Anyway, AWESOME chapter! Everything was dripping with awesomeness, seriously. You'd think Mairi wouldn't be able to change moods so quickly from being a bit softened but, man, she went back to her hate act. And that guy... was that her brother? Whoever he was, he's a creep. He thinks Elise looked familiar... could it be someone from the mall with Candice/ or maybe the guy that raped/assaulted Elise? D: The last line was perfect-"he's nobody". A.
But then I heard her voice, low was grim.
"low was grim" sounds weird...
The suspense is killing me! Update soon! :D

O! Definately one of my favorites! The description of Mairi's house was flawless and the boy.. he sounded really creepy. :( I loved this chapter so much, I can't even say. The conversation flowed so well, like a novel! :) Awesome job, please update soon!
| GoldieHotcakes 8/11/09 . chapter 16
Another update! Yay.
I was wondering what Mairi's house would be like that, and the home environment you created was pretty much how I imagined it would be.
I like getting to know Mairi. In some ways, she's so complex. It's interesting to see a little bit of her mask peeled back every chapter she's been in.
Update soon, of course, and I'll be waiting. XD
| flies.like.decay 8/11/09 . chapter 16
Well, minus whatever changes, the chapter was good as usual. I like that it ended with Mairi in a cold, painfully mysterious way. The descriptions were really good and now I suppose I have to go fan girl-ish and say, "Can't wait for the update!" Because seriously, I love this story XD

Alright, so, I LOVE this chapter.
It's short, yes-and that's almost the only bad part.
The character interaction was great, and now we're finally getting into the down-and-dirty story material.
I cannot wait to see what and where you're doing and taking this!
If that made... any sense.
Amazing, as usual!
I'll be waiting not-so-patiently!
All the best,
