    Another mystery! What did you have in mind Nicola?


    • I had an image of a man obsessed with a woman who he befriends. She enters a relationship with him even though there is a tiny bit of her that rings alarm bells. Something isn’t right with him but she can’t pinpoint what. I see the story ending with the woman wanting to leave him but his possessive nature making this impossible. The climax would see both of the dying because of it (I hadn’t worked out how, but it would be nothing like Romeo and Juliet).

      His obsession. Her mistake. Their funeral.

  9. Oh I love this! I saw a play called Blood Wedding yesterday (have you seen/read it?!) and this is superbly reminiscent of that. Great work!
