The Vampire's Gem

The night is filled with their shadows

Creatures of unspeakable horror
They feed on their victims blood
They are cruel and they are fierce
With eyes as cold as the night
Vampires rule with an iron fist

I run fast with it clenched in my fist
A gem as dark as the shadows
I could barely see it in the night
All I could think were thoughts of horror
The branches hitting my face were fierce
Scratching my skin and drawing blood

Now covered by my own blood
I slow down and open my fist
Vampires, growing closer, are fierce
My body was hidden in the shadows
But it did nothing to hide my horror
All I could do was hide in the night

I continued to hide in the night
I knew they could smell my blood
Watching them run past me filled me with horror
To keep from screaming, I bit my fist
I knew I had to keep to the shadows
My thoughts turned fierce

To keep from falling, my feet were fierce
I ran so fast through that night
Remembering to keep to the shadows
All I could hear was the pounding of my blood
I felt it still clenched in my fist
I could no longer feel the horror

With a plan in my head, I felt no horror
My successful smile turned fierce
I shifted the black gem to my other fist
I continued to run through the night
With my speed, they might smell my blood
Even if I was hiding in the shadows

My fierce thoughts were filled with shadows
Without horror, there was no fear in my blood
With the gem in my fist, I continued home though the night

Grapes Are Juicy yes!!!: I give this novel FIVE STARS ! This novel is worth reading from the beginning to the end! The plot and conflicts in this story are very smartly integrated. The language facility is a little odd , but i guess this was done on purpose, given the novel's set era. Other than that, this should definit...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

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...

rihannabkj2: Great story,I can hardly stop reading this novel. it shows that compassion and love can still exist after so many years between two persons. I most say well done to the Author who wrote this book. Others should read this book inorder to know that there can still be LOVE among two persons no matt...

Dave Baxter: Generally, a good story. The plot was a bit predictable but not overly so. The first bit might have been better if it instead focused on how the main character becomes a host and not with how humans first interact with the aliens. This might allow more recognition of the various transitions sh...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!
