A Slow Burn - Chapter Five

Chapter five of A Slow Burn is now posted on Please read, review and let me know what you think. I was aiming for something with this chapter and I hoped I succeeded with it. I hope you like the chapter. Please read it and let me know what you think. Below is a picture of Mark, Rob's best friend - who will become extremely important to Rob and Lauren's relationship in later chapters - and a banner an anonymous reader made for Lauren.

LOVE IT! I already wrote a review on AFF before, but I just wanted to write here as well. I'm so happy you found inspiration! The chapter was amazing. It was so much deeper and passionate than the others. Also, I was just reading some of your older stories, and they are SO different than the ones now. Your transformation as an author is astounding. The difference from Wonderwall and The Nicest Thing is crazy! Your writing improves more and more in each story! So anyways, you're amazing. Keep it up!

p.s. I like the stories, but I feel like I'm soon going to fall in love with another imaginery character though. That's not good. I'm going insane :)

Great job on this chapter. I already like Mark. (Who doesn't love Mos Def?) Hopefully the upcoming chapters will have more reactions, from both family and friends, to the "relationship" between Lauren and Rob.

As I was reading, especially the second half of the chapter, I wanted to yell at the characters to just have a conversation. It's great that they both fear what the other will think and that they don't know how to define what they are to each other.

I'm really looking forward to more of this story. I have so many scenarios in my head of what I think could happen...can't wait to see how you progress their story from here on out.

Again, great chapter.

Sorry only got around to reading this chapter now! I really love this story, it's so different from your other ones but i'm hooked already!

I can definetly see the start of their obsession unfolding I just wish they'd talk about their feelings but I don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon?

Looking forward to see how Mark's character is going to become more improtant, I hope in a good way!!

Loved it update when you can ;)

Awwww. I feel almost bad for them. This chapter reminds me of my last relationship. It was almost more than I wanted to read. I think that's one of the things I love about your stories. Sometimes you just can't turn away even when you know the characters are doing something stupid. Ok so why does this story remind me or me? ? ? My ex and I used sex to replace real communication. Sometimes it was I want to say I love you, sometimes it was I hate you. It didn't matter what we really need to verbalize it seems like sex always was involved. Nothing so passionate as this (he wasn't that good) but sex was our communication band aid. Needless to say the relationship didn't work. Sometime you have to TALK it out. Say what you are feeling. Your words, the way you wrote this chapter, it just took me there.

Great Writing, great chapter!

Oh sorry it took me so long to review. My home computer had not been liking the Internet lately. I think I have a virus, so I had to have a friend e-mail me the chapter at work. I'm telling you, the things I do to get a Templeton Fix!
