Readers

Readers participate in the collaborate writing community. Vote for your favorite chapters and influence which plots get written next. Provide your feedback, praise, and criticism to authors about their creative writing in discussions attached to every chapter.

Readers, find fiction stories that interest you. After you read a chapter, choose how you want the plot to continue by selecting a branch from among multiple "next" chapters.

While reading one of our great fiction stories, if the story doesn't continue the way you want or have a great idea on what should happen next and catch the collaborate writing bug, register to write a follow up chapter!

Chapter 2:

As I opened the door to the victims house I took a deep breath to help prepare myself. 

The house was in a secluded location for which I was thankful, I had always hated the crowds which gather from concerned neighbours 

and worse: the press. 

I had seen the pictures but upon entering the bathroom i had to instantly back out; nothing could have prepared me, or 

anyone for that matter, for this. 

I had to back straight out. I felt sick. The victim was a middle aged woman named Sally Pearson who was touching forty,

 if it wasn't for the unlucky cut of the artery the victim could have been saved. 

Further information informed me that Sally was a divorcee and was rather rich after she caught her ex-husband cheating and got a rather large seven figure sum off of him. The most prevalent feature however was the large bruises covering her face, this hinted at domestic violence
