Prologue

                                      Scratch


It’s hard to start without having a thought of having what to start. Most likely, the beginning of everything great started from simple thoughts that weren’t thoroughly thought through. Wow. If everything was great then the beginning must also be great.

Wrong.

If everything was great, things from the beginning must be twisted and everything. That’s how things work. Unfortunately, great things are usually accepted by the more fortunate and not the less fortunate. Sad thing is that the less fortunate needs to climb up and struggle more in order to stand taller than those who have better lives.

In all honesty, we less fortunate wished to be like one of them. Fortunate… normal… less tragic.

Nobody deserved such fate and nobody wished for tragedy. And yet it happened. Funny thing is that “There is a reason for everything”. Don’t you think it’d be scary if someone died for a reason? Don’t you think it’d be scary if someone’s misfortune happened for a reason?

Don’t you think that it’d be scary if someone was tortured for a reason?

And the answer for that reason was “Because I had free time.”

Doesn’t that make your blood boil?

Doesn’t hearing something like that make you so infuriated that you might punch someone in the face?

We less fortunate people experience those kinds of reasoning to a fault wherein you can’t do anything about it. We feel pain more intense than what you more fortunate ones know.

Because it is tradition, because we can’t burden ourselves with another child, because you are unworthy, because you are ugly, because we don’t love you, because there’s no other option, because we don’t care… because.

 Bottom line is that there are questions that are better-off unanswered.

Why the hell am I even saying these things?

Don’t worry, you’ll know soon enough.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

carla1234: I couldn't stop reading this book once I started! it was brilliant! I loved it and I would love to buy it. Although if you could make a more eye-catching synopsis, I would suggest you please do.I loved how everything came together in this novel. everyone, even people not involved in the main stor...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...
