Title: Chapter 13: Coping with Joy

>"Do you want me to hurt you?" Parker hissed. >A slow grin broke out on Jarod's face. "If I said 'yes', would you still respect me in the morning?" *snickers* But um yeah, another great story from you, a bit sappy-ending of course, but shows that these people if they put their mind to it, are quite dangerous! I really can see Jarod being so overwhelmed becoming a parent, a father. Heck, I'm surprised he'd be able to stand up for a while, much less sleep.

Somehow this story merges into a soft fluffy aura in the end.. a cozy feeling in sharp contrast to how it started out, fragmented and cold. >"No," Charles said thoughtfully. "He doesn't fear them. He seems to be connected to them in some way, as though they share a terrible secret." I think this quote sums up their life together, perfectly. >Jarod knew that his sanity could never withstand being completely alone in the world. Also another truth concerning Jarod.. hinting to what he's been through to cure this loneliness.. Another well written story, please keep up the good work.

I'm still a bit surprised they didn't interrogate her more agressively though. Butbut, considering what went through her head when she was interrogated, it's amazing she didn't slip... And ohmy.. predatory Jarod, I've mused if this was what it took for him to literally take charge of things, I guess that was the case ;)

Title: Chapter 1: Another Woman

That dancing scene, so well done. The situation between Jarod and Miss Parker was utterly electric. >"With all due respect, Mr. Lyle, might I suggest that Zoe may feel a bit more comfortable to speak freely when not in the company of the man who abducted her at gunpoint?" haha, he makes it sound like an oh so casual occurance ;) >"It's not that... it's... You may not realize this, but people don't generally announce to authority figures that they've just spent the morning going at it like crazed monkeys." >"Miss Parker," Jarod began with a gleam in his eye. "I'll have you know that I spent many hours observing monkeys copulating, and not once in all that time did I witness..." LOL! *cackles loudly!* >"But I can't give my parents back the child they lost any more than they can give me back my lost childhood. The best we can do is enjoy who we've become, the people we are now. And the person I am now is at his best when he's with you. That's so sweet, and so good that they're finally coming to terms with their lives and the impact The Centre had on it. I was worried for a while what Zoe warned Miss Parker about would come true.. The Centre just doesn't vanish like that, so phew, that things did calm down. And Lyle being so "nice" in the end. I guess he just wanted to get rid off her though. A great story this :)

Title: Chapter 1: Part 1

I too like the portrayment and implications of Miss Parker and Jarod's love and hate relationship.. it surely isn't a dance or roses.. more like bleeding roses that one slip on from time to time and get cut on the underlying thorns. And also interesting how Sydney and Broots aren't cheery puppetlike bystanders, rather the opposite, their lives depend on Parker and Jarod. And Lyle, wouldn't expect any less from him. Any chance of a continuation, or will you leave it like this to torture us? ;)
