I liked this.
I also liked the reference to Jack the Ripper, and how it was Jane coming towards him.
Author's Response: Thanks dragon_girl! Poor Jack, he never saw it coming did he? At least all the women in Whitechapel will now be safe.

I love pieces like this where they leave the rest to the imagination, and you kind of have to read between the lines. And, the edge of menace that progresses up until the last word, where it is more pronounced. Its like a crescendo, except that it builds up with every word, instead of a note. Anyway, enough of my music references and rambling, I am such an orchestra geek. Amazing little story, almost like poetry.
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! This one was difficult to write, probably the hardest of any of those I have written. I am glad you enjoyed it.

I love the 55 word challenge because it has to capture so much in so little. This story is one of the few submitted that truly succeeded in taking an entire story and summing it up perfectly. Precise, perfectly detailed and laying out an entire scene using practically nothing. Excellent!
Author's Response: :) Aww... I'm blushing. Just for that, I'll send you a shot of Dream On.

Hmm...it looks like he chose the wrong girl to mess with. He doesn't even know how close to the truth he was with the "seemingly innocent" comment :). I like the title a lot too - it's very apt. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks for your kind review and for enjoying the story. The shorter ones are always the hardest to write, so I am glad that it turned out the way it did and that you liked it.
