“You are so young, child, and yet so wise to perceive life like this. But you also know what this can mean for you.” Her gaze narrowed, gone was the soft expression, now overcome with a look of solemnity. “Life isn’t about second chances or missed opportunities. You make do with what you have, and if you want to better yourself and rise from your surroundings, you tear at your opportunity with everything you have, because there will always, always be others fighting as hard for it as you.”
And there would be. Ritzenthaler was one, if not the best choreographer in the world. Candidates would flood from all corners of the country to New York to get a shot at a part. If Rex could secure a spot, it would give him his first break, fulfilling his dream of becoming a danseur principal.
Mistress Olga folded her arms across her chest. “I have faith in you, Rex, and I know you can do this. Yes, your talent is raw, but for this particular ballet, for the role of Lucifer, this is exactly what Léonce is looking for.”
They were momentarily silenced by the sound of the dancers letting themselves out of the studio, the chatter of voices muting as they wound down the stairs.
“Ritzenthaler is a good friend of mine, and he is going to be keeping an eye out for you, so…” She licked her lips and fixed him to the spot with a hard gaze. “Don’t fuck it up.”
Yes, Mamma Ru. Rex doubted if Mistress Olga would even catch the reference. He nodded, keeping his thoughts to himself as he left the office.

Meet the author:
They come to me in the night, creeping into my head. Their voices are all different, their stories all dissimilar, but they keep saying the same thing…
“Show us, tell us, bring us into your world, and make us known.”
Then I sit and they take over. They tell their tales of love, loss and sinister misfortune. Not all of them get a happy ending, but they are pleased when their part is written.
I sometimes find myself lost in my own mind; a world very similar to our own yet so different. Things don’t go bump in the night— they squeal and crawl under your skin, making you grind your teeth, and making your stomach turn over and putting your nerves on edge. Then there’s the drama. Oh, the drama!
Wulf Francú Godgluck hails from South Africa. His work is not for the faint-hearted! In his books you’ll find… all the beasties with their nasty claws and teeth, and some you didn’t even know existed.
But the monsters aren’t all real. Some live inside us. Who knows what he will make you discover about yourself, lurking in your heart, behind the closed walls in the deep, black recesses where no light penetrates? Wulf will steal your heart and never give it back. More than likely, he’ll pin it to the wall with a bobbypin and sit there sipping his tea while you writhe and squeal on the floor…
