This would be an incredible first chapter if you decided to develop this idea. It would be neat to write a story where Desia is a protagonist villain.

Hi! You probably don't remember me but I was active on here 3 years ago or so.. then school got in the way haha. Anyway I'm back and decided to see what you'd been up to, and this caught my eye. It was great! I really loved the way you built up the character of the genie, and her inner voice was strong and believable. The ending was also good, but I don't think it was as strong as the rest of the story. Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure your writing only got better!

I'm not going to lie, it took me awhile to get back to you about swaps, sorry :) but honestly this is fantastic! a real treat, I've always seen the legends behind genies as too fluffed up. because if you read the real stuff (the real legends) they're quite tricky and mischievous. if you're still interested in a swap, I would love you to read my book "COLLECTOR" but if sirens aren't your cup of tea then you are free to read anything else. "TRUTH" is an honest story, but not for the average romantic to read. once again! this was fantastic, I'll have to check out some of your other stuff soon. have a great day/night/you know -BAY

This was a wonderful story! It was simple and to the point, and it really gives you something to think about. Short pieces like these are a REAl source of inspiration. I have never read anything quite like this before. It shows how you should think before you act.
