Your writing is very descriptive, not over bearing, it's truly believable and very romantic. You have done very well.

Ah, darn! I was so hoping that this Vitus guy was in fact her husband, not really dead. But then, thats almost too simple an end, isn't it? Hmm, so this Vitus isn't going to be much help I can see. How are you going to turn this into a happy ending? Well, you've emailed your stories, so i shall go and see! Wonderful job on this story, very masterfully written so far!

As always, I am very happy to see another update. And am still very pleased with the story! Though I do have one correction to make. Races were not held at the coliseum but rather at the Circus Maximus.

Wow, you definitely have a talent for drawing out horror! I've been so rapt with fear for my favorite characters i haven't even been able to review until now!
Wow, talk about cliff hangers! I can't believe this story ends for now here of all places!She's in the coloseum? How are you going to rescue her from this?
I am so moved by your writing! This story is brilliantly written and executed. I can only pray that you will deliver a happy ending to your poor characters soon enough. Write soon, I will anxiously await the next update!

NO! NO,NO,NO,NO,NO! Vitus, or whoever he is (I have my suspicions, which I hope are totally correct!) can't be led astray! He needs to rescue Calliliana from her horrible fate! Because the poor girl deserves a break after all the horror that has befallen her! She's lost two children now, and is going to be raped every day of her life. I'm sorry, God had better give them a happy ending before long!

I can't imagine her wrath right now. I know i would be doing more then contemplate murder. I'd be preparing for it.
Well, it least one kind soldier walked her home. She needs someone with morals at a time like this.
God wants us to forgive. That sounds so hard right now. But can she do it for Leander?

Marcus had better not go back on his word after what he did to her! She complied! He'd better pay up!
| vanilfrappe chapter 13 . 12/27/2009
AGH! She is bold. stupidly so, but bold. I agree Marcus is vile. But does she want to live to see her son? Marcus doesn't strike me as one who takes criticism well.

Oh, if I were a bulldog, I'd be growling and have Marcus Agrippa's tender parts between my massive teeth.
So, is Calliliana (I so mispelled that)going to save him in time? I hope so!
| vanilfrappe chapter 9 . 12/27/2009
DAMN! I hate rude house guests. That Marcus Agrippa! If his goal was to make her free for him, his plan didn't work so well did it? She's bleeding for goodness sakes!
Oh, please, i hope the baby is okay! And Leander, he'll get out of this won't he? He's rich, has nfluence, and he's a citizen, surely there will be a trial and he can buy his way out?
| vanilfrappe chapter 5 . 12/27/2009
Whoa, she's not worrying that he'll dissaprove of a girl baby, now is she? I shall read further and find out!
| vanilfrappe chapter 4 . 12/27/2009
YAY! They're getting married!
I mean, it was such a difficult choice!, choosing between being a servant, leaving or...what was the third option?...getting married.
hm. I think Calliliana has just proved her intelligence on the matter.
I like him more now too. The shared experience of his time watching the arena games was enlightening.
| vanilfrappe chapter 2 . 12/27/2009
Hm, Leander is going to have trouble keeping his hands off her I can see! Not that i blame the guy. And if I were her, i definitely wouldn't be keeping my hands to myself either!
So, how is Leander going to address his obvious difficulty in addressing her freedom in the matter? I'm curious to see where they will go after the kiss.
