Silver says: I almost had to flip a coin to pick the winner. This was a wonderfully written piece with a juicy twist at the end. The emotion is vibrantly colored by his word choice.

Silver says: This is a Gothic tale couched in modern sensibilities with a side dish of Stepford Wives. I want to know the secret...

Silver says: I love the Ian Fleming feel of this tale and her line "The silences shouted to me." truly spoke to me. Each "thread" is complete and yet a wonderfully woven piece of whole story's tapestry.
"Mirrors my mood," she smirked. "Well, this is Strasbourg. It's always raining. And cold."
We'd left Paris and the memories of Jean-François and the Agency, two days ago. I was confused and bewildered. My former lover, Jean-François had sent me a message saying he wanted me to meet him. But when I got to Place des Voges he wasn't there. No phone call. Nothing.
"Has something happened to him," Solange asked.
I simply shrugged. The silences shouted to me. I had no idea why he hadn't contacted me. Perhaps security matters required his silence. He wouldn't maintain it for long, I tried to convince myself.
Solange was typically cynical. "Well you can't rely on Natalie to inform you of his movements or attempts to contact you. She's ruthless."
Perhaps she was right. Natalie, Solange and I had been friends since university, but Natalie had become aloof and moody in recent months.
"What is going on," I mused aloud.
"Danielle," Solange said, suddenly. "Look across the street. We are being watched."
I looked but saw nothing. The rain grew steadier.
"I saw so someone in front of that shop," Solange said.
"I didn't see anyone."
Solange grabbed my arm to stop me from moving, thinking I was going to cross the street.
Just then, my phone rang.
