I thought it would be a nice idea to make up vaguely erudite quotes, and then come up with a short fiction piece to go with it. As I have said before I am always experimental in my writing styles. This is more fractioned into quick poetic slides, rather than a straight narrative.

First 2 chapters of a novel about a young woman whose life spirals out of control when she clashes with an arrogant gang of privileged youths. I first posted this under "Erotica", but maybe it belongs in the novel section. I promise to reciprocate reviews. Politically incorrect content.
