Siobhan says: What I liked about this story was the feeling that no one really knows what's best for you until they stop thinking of what's best for them. How many of us have been set up by well-meaning friends or family members who have chosen someone THEY like for us? When Rachel finally picks a person completely opposite to her tastes, Angie becomes interested. Fun story and love the hook at the end.

Siobhan says: What I loved about this was the f/f relationship and the way the narrator called out the antagonist who'd played her as much as the guy she was dancing with. And the Karma was a beautiful thing, even with the typo. :)

Siobhan says: In so many of our stories, once the woman's been wronged, she hides and fades away, never to be seen again. But in reality, women don't do that. And some of them actively turn the tides. I liked the strong ending, her older self giving her the will to return.
Lost. Everything I ever had was gone. I don’t know if you can understand the depth of that statement. It wasn’t just my things, or my home, I could deal with that, but I had given him everything I was meant to be, and he had greedily accepted them.
We were happy for a while, but I was a fool. I was so lost in him that when he left, I had no identity. The real me? We were strangers now, and I hadn’t left a forwarding address.
I was hurt, lost, and angry. At least that was something I found we had in common.
I found her, in the mirror one day.
“I always knew you’d come draggin’ your ass back here…” Me-That-was said.
"This is what it’s like to go insane," I muttered, but I couldn’t couldn't bring myself to care.
“You aren’t insane.”
"Yeah, when the voices start talking to you, you’re in trouble."
“You are in trouble, but it’s nothing we can’t handle.”
I turned, and I could see the wicked gleam in her eyes. I had no idea what to do, but I could see she had a plan.
So I asked,“what do we do?”
“Revenge,” the other me offered.
“Living well is the best revenge,” I quoted, feeling a twinge of memory. “But to live well, I need payback.”
“Well, they say payback’s a bitch—”
“Girlfriend, please… a bitch’d be too easy.”
“Perhaps a vengeful bitch?”
That, I could do.
