As you can imagine we became very close, and even though we have been separated by distance we have remained close, thanks to Skype and many three hour phone calls. We talk about everything from writing to alternate universe's featuring our characters. She introduced me to the world of Anime, got me hooked on K-pop, and showed me a bunch of Youtuber's. (I take it back RPG Games, are the scariest thing, I was wrong)
Anyway, she has been there since the humble beginning's of my writing, and she also edited 'Bleeding Roses' for me, and can I say set the curve on how you should edit a friend's work.
She edited it, but in certain parts just wrote what she thought, and it was hilarious. (Her comments are in Grey)
"Belle," My father yelled grabbing at my skirts. "You've come to save me from the beast." He shook as he look at the man before him. I took hold of his hand trying to console him. I had never seen him so crazed.(“Thanks a lot, Dad. Giving away my name. THANKS”)
Fingers with long nails, traced my arm and neck. (UM????)(creepy BUT GOOD)
"Red suits you."
I stared openly at my host, grimacing at his distasteful words.(I can picture her face. I just made this face when I read what he just said, actually)
"You're dripping on the floor."Our captor observed in a dry tone. " Very rude of you."(there is it. What a gentleman)
She grabbed my arm and studied the clotting wounds. "They look far worse than they are." Her tone was neither reassuring or consoling. She covered the wounds with her hands. "I'm going to heal them with magic." She wasn't asking for permission.(lol okay then, creepy old lady)
He snapped his fingers and a scone appeared in his hand, he took a bite and spat it, "Ash, it's ash!" (‘AAAAAY YEAH vampires and ashy tasting food!)
She held me tighter crushing my stomach, She stroked my face and spoke into my hair. "Fret not Belle, I am merely coaxing him from his cave."(I’m uh. What the heck again. Verda what the heck. I thought weird touching people was William’s thing)
His eyes flicked to Verda than back to me. "Merely a precaution(period) the road can be treacherous." (William what the heck, if you love her, you can’t let her go if you suspect Verda)
Kill the wench(period) It won't bring you peace." He looked at me with a critical eye, "She is just the help(comma) after all." (#William is a terrible liar)
She made me feel better about everything. I sent her this song yesterday, because we had been discussing William. It is one of the one's I write to.
She sent me fan art, my first ever fan art, guys. I love it to pieces.
It's William too, so it's that much better, and it's inspired by the song. :D
