Well Chuck, you already know my thoughts on this (if not, check your PMs).

Excellent as always.

So you're finally back eh? Well I think you've known me somewhat long enough to know exactly what I would say to your story. So i'll let your imagination do the job I'm supposed to do, for me.

I'm lazy, but don't sue me.

Whoa.....that was terrifyingly good. I've read your stories before, and this one is no different, and is summed up in one word. Excelent. I am honored to give this story 10/10, and that's only because I can't go any higher.

Well, someone has to be the bearer of bad news... hehe, not me. Well I did have two little gripes with the story and that is that it was very similar to Robert Ludlum's The Ambler Warning, and having read that I was able to predict at least a little bit of the story (though not all of it, and for that I tip my hat to you).

But overall it was just as good as the last two, if not better. Oh, and the second gripe was it took so long to come out, heh, we demand another. Keep it up my friend.

Fortunately, I've never read that book by Ludlum.

My character was so cool Very Happy . Despite the fact that you didn't see much of him, he was still awesome. So wait, his neck was broken and it said Jeremy broke one guy's neck. The guy that had his neck broken (not Mr. Gray) was Boony, right? So, does that mean Mr. Gray was Boony? I'm confused, but that's not an unnatural thing.
Anyway, great story, Chuck. I'll be looking forward to another and Wolf was completely right in saying,

No, Boony was horribly tortured to death. Boony was the nickname of the last man Jeremy tortured; Daniel Meecham. That was the guy who had Stella's name tattoed backwards on his chest (WALLETS=STELLA Weiss). As for his nickname, do you get it? Daniel Boony Meecham Very Happy Anyway, Jeremy said the following about Meecham/Boony:
Quote:
Just before he died, he confessed to being a rebel . . .

So yes, Boony did die. Mr. Gray did have his neck broken by Jeremy. Thus, his quest for "justice" is more than a little bit about revenge.

Thanks for the review and also for letting me use your name. I thought that it fit quite well.

I think its like Daniel Boone or however you say that I never really liked history. But good story I liked it but thats just ME. Sombody should shoot me for that pun. Anyway just One maybe two questions. So Stella was the one who dressed up as the Reaper and killed the other crazy man to scare Thomas as revenge? And she purposely withheld the medicine so thathe would seem lucid and the doc would have to call the ONI. or was that just a coincidence.

Well I think Death was a separate entity here, who happened to come at the same time he told Stella (not an accident).

Stella just shot him because he killed her rebel boyfriend.

Gray was trying to kill him because he'd broken his neck before.

But was Death a figment of Jeremy's imagination? Or was it another person, like someone working for Mr. Gray? Tommy saw it, too, so either Tommy constantly imagined Death, and Jeremy was having side effects from the sudden lack of drugs coupled with his previous experience, maybe?

Quote:

Mr. Gray wanted to torture him something fierce before that. Maybe he wanted to keep him alive just for that. In fact, I'm wondering if Mr. Gray cared if Jeremy was a rebel or not, but just wanted revenge alone.

Gosh, there's so much to disscuss in here. I love it. Did I say 10/10 before?
