    Slightly hard to understand

    Try adding less charcters at the start and explain them a liitle more. It was confusing when first Nick talks and then a girl. I thought it was a typo but it was weird. But all in all it sounds like a good story. Keep going.

    The Taken One Chapter 1

    Amanda sat at her desk. Trying the focus she strained to think. Her husband was presuring her to finish the book. Nick walks in and says,"Finished yet dear?" "No," she sighs in reply. "Ok take your time," he said surprisingly calm. Calling Joe he said,"Joe, something is wrong with our neighbor. He's strange." "So, if someone is strang doesn't mean that they're a murder," replied Joe sarcastically. "Whatever, just please look into it," she said. Hanging up she knocked on his door and said,"Philip! Philip are you home?" Spying from inde Philip ignored. Calling Amanda later he said,"Hey, Amanda, I have something you might like." when she camehe showed her video of her peeking through his window. Tears well in her yes andhe sticks a cloth in her mouth. She passed out. <p> ( To be continued! )
