A Gentleman's Secret
*AWARDS & HONORS BELOW*
He is the Gentleman we all know. Elegantly wrapped in a black cashmere trench coat and the stench of rot and old age, he comes to a gathering, making both men and women swoon. Then, at the end of the magical night, he brings a special girl on an escapade. He never fails to surprise her.
Gloomy and satirical, this ten-minute-read will leave you disturbed for much longer.

"The way the author uses words makes you wish there were more in the English language. Each phrase and sentence was constructed specifically and concisely. You can tell that the author planned this story out and then executed it with equal precision." @ereehu, Earnesty's Writers Awards 2019 Judge
"You draw us into this evil spider's web, painting a picture of deepening horror." @CMF_Wright
"Stepping into this tale, I was turned off by the unvarnished opening. By the final paragraph of the first chapter, I realized it was a mistake to write this story off so quickly. Now that I've reached the end, I think you can scrub my initial comment from the board since you CLEARLY know how to hook a reader[.]" @lesserknown1
