The Porch

A Story by Alex Boyd
"

A short story I'm working on about this good guy turned murderous....

"
On that night I only remember two things being cold and death... As I saw my lover make love to another the heart I had was no longer there... A heartless man I became never again shall I love again.... And there I left them drench in their blood laying on top each other like Romeo and Juliet.... A ending that was well fitting for them though I knew she was stepping out on me, my Juliet.... Her last breath that she took was wasted on a kiss that she gave me... Sadly she meant... it I could tell by the way she pressed her lips against mines as she slowly drifted into her eternal sleep... Wearing a nightgown that I have gave her.... Silky red with fine lacing around the edge an a robe to match.... My Juliet was beautiful in her death and I a monster that has risen from within.... Once a civilian now transformed into a murder of love.... At least I thought

I think you could take this further, bring in a prequel to get us into this part of the story and get more graphic on the murder front, so what i'm saying is this makes a good skeleton now put some flesh on the bones, a very good story in the making :)

No idea where you could go with this, it is wonderful as it is, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't curious to see what you do with it! I definitely want to read more!

The only criticism I have (this could just be my personal opinion) is regarding the very first sentence "On that night I only remember two things being cold and death", although I did understand after reading it over, "being cold and death" doesn't seem to work if you know what I mean?

Otherwise, really creative and enjoyable! Write more!

it sounds like the girl's good at the kiss too, lucky for her, though I guess not if this story has a moral

I think this is very impressive and very descriptive I loved it but I think I found an error on it when you said "Sadly she meant it", think after that there should be a coma.
