She pushes you back into the grainy brick wall. That’s when you know.

Your mouth dries. Air traps in your throat.

There’s no stopping the way she stills everything around you.

“Don’t fight it,” she says.

That’s fine. You weren’t planning—

Sparks flash on her fingertips. “Why did you come back here like this?”

Her name’s Isabelle. A milk tea drinking editor and reader who slaughters (or tucks away) little darlings as she plunges deeper into the psychology of characters and story worlds. She admitted that before. But you want to know every single detail and how she gets away with it.

Isabelle shoves her hand against your ear. “I asked you a question.”

She snaps her fingers too quickly for you to scream.

But no pain follows.

Your chest caves. You choke back a relieved sob.

She touches her hand to your eye. “I already told you how to find me in the proper way.”

Another spark.

You scream through gritted teeth.

“This is your only strike.” She lowers her hand and wriggles it back into her glove. “I have a good thing going for me in this area, so let’s try to be respectful of boundaries from now on, yeah?”

You nod stiffly.

She pats your cheek and walks away. Just like that.

The world blurs before you in greens, blues, and reds. You take a few steps, but your knees buckle. Slamming your palm against the brick wall, you right yourself and breathe heavily.

      • Oh, no, I didn’t mean a correction of word choice (sorry for the miscommunication). To me, “the more” or “the most” insinuates social comparison (like a comparison with my fellow bloggers’ About Me pages, including your wonderful page). So I meant I love that you think my About Me is unique and special (<3<3<3), but I wouldn't say it was "more" special than yours or anyone else's. That's probably NOT what you meant at all, but I still wanted to express my thoughts, just in case. Thanks for reading my rambling (lol)

  13. Thank you for visiting my blog and signing on for updates. I truly appreciate it. I have been browsing your blog. It’s great. : )

    Oddly, my Dad was called Izzy. I was named after him except with an ‘A’. He was Isidore. Anyway, I have been called ‘Izzy’ but it seems my bloggers prefer ‘Issy’. I prefer Isadora. What is in a name anyway …??? !!!
    Isadora : )

    • The “history” behind the making of your name is heartwarming. I was named after my mother and great-grandmother. My name’s Isabelle, but I have many nicknames, from Izzy to Bellasaurus-rex ;). Thanks for looking around, leave a comment whenever you want or can so I can know your thoughts.

  20. You have such an engaging site. So many different aspects to it….very cool!
    Are you working on a suspense novel right now? I see that you spend time on Goodreads. I’m on there, but I don’t really use it much. Lack of time.
    Nice to meet you. Thank you for finding and following my blog.

      I understand having strained time. Are you currently reading anything, though?

  29. Hi Izzy. What a clever About page. I think psychology’s a great subject for any writer to have studied – great material and understanding of what makes characters tick. I’ll be interested to read more of your writing. The flash fiction challenges are excellent practice. 🙂

  40. It’s already been said, but wow Izzy, this is not an About page, it’s a fully fledged short story in its own right, and a brilliant one at that. Totally forgot that – got to the end and “Yeah? Then what happened? Where’s the rest of the novel?! Oh, this is just an About page? Damn…”
    Keep it up, great stuff 🙂
