My English assignment on Outsiders and Outcasts, based on an analogy. Sorry it’s short, but we had a word limit of 750 words. I might write an extended version at some point. Just saying, I got full marks for this.

Love Is A Vow: Both restrict you from doing certain things, and if you break a heart/vow, a relationship is shattered.

The silver blade of the dagger glinted in the moonlight as I gripped the hilt, poised to strike. My shadow flickered, dancing threateningly over the Prince’s sleeping figure. He rolled over, the light casting an angelic glow over his young face, highlighting strands of his light brown hair. I trembled, and the dagger slipped out of my hand. Time seemed to freeze as the hilt collided with the floor. A shout rang through the corridor outside, and the Prince stirred, as heavy footsteps sped closer. I grabbed the blade from the deep red carpet, flung on my cloak and leapt towards the window, shoving it open. Harsh, bitter frost attacked my cheeks as I took one more glance back at the Prince. He sat awake, wide, blue eyes locked onto my icy ones. We gazed at each other for an exceedingly long moment, before I leapt from the windowsill, cloak gliding me down into the snow.

That was a long time ago. 3 years since I had failed to assassinate Prince Basil, since I had been exiled from the group of the best assassins in the land, The Silent Blade. Flashes of my ex-teammates filled my vision. They didn’t know why I couldn’t kill him. Memories floated around my head of the day I vowed to never kill him, blinded by foolish endearment. Memories of my best friends turning their backs on me, all because I couldn’t kill a stupid boy.

I shook away the thoughts, and ploughed on through the snow and swirling wind. I drew my cloak closer to my body as I slipped into the shadows of the great castle, looming above me, almost tauntingly, as if it knew I would fail once more. I clenched my fists, my eyes narrowing. If I couldn’t kill Basil, so be it. But I could kill his brother.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...

Grace Mendoza: It took me around 3-4 days to finish reading this story and it feels like I'm watching a movie while reading this. Everything is so eloquently written and this MUST be published as a book and turn to a movie. There are minute spelling problems BUT nothing to bothered about. Hands down to the amaz...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

romboili000: As I read this book it made me realize the importance of trusting big God. And believing that you can love even when it feels impossible. This story definitely has made me what to become a better person in Christ and just life. So thank you that's all I have to say because you wrote this story so...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...
