The First Day

Mark stared at the being before him, Too describe his feeling in one word? Stunned, Though he could only guess anyone would feel this way after being told something that outrageous. So why did he believe them?

Maybe it was the fact that this figured seemed to literally be ON FIRE Defiantly not something that you see everyday. Adorned in a pure white robe of sorts, his hair was smoothed back on his head. Consumed in a white fire, that billowed up around him, yet seemed to give off no smoke.

"Uhh... What, exactly did you say again?" mark managed to mumbled something audible. Much to the personage's discontent, they visibly shook he head before speaking

"The world may end in nine days, Depending on how you live your life." he repeated with a perfect serenity. It was almost alluring, almost.

"Uh-huh" Mark found him self nodded, his thoughts were a jumbled train wreck. Quickly shaking the feeling, off he responded. "Wait, what!? this doesn't make any sense!"

"Relax, Just try not to do anything stupid and the world wont end.... Maybe."

"Maybe!?" The figure didn't bother responding, he turned away and. he was gone, Just in a single instant. Mark could only stare at the place he was just a few seconds ago. Mind ablaze with questions, yet no answers to satisfy the raging fire.

Slowly, Marked turned away and began walking. He hadn't parked his car that far away from the road. It was probably just some prank after all. their's noway that could have been real?



Still something was off, Sure people normally don't wear pure white clothing and stand in white fire. yet for whatever reason this simply felt, real. As soon as he heard the door click behind him, mark let out a long sigh. "Jeez, the world will Maybe end in nine days. What kind of joke is this?"
He tossed his keys on the small table that stood guard to his door, as he shuffled into his apartment, though small. He realized he hadn't accomplished anything that he set out to do, but who could with that kind of news weighing down their shoulder. If what the fire man said is true than maybe even picking out the wrong shirt could end the world.
"Heh, that's a funny concept, the doomsday shirt." Mark chuckled at his own joke as he leaned back, falling into his couch and landing with a loud poofing noise. staring up at the ceiling he cursed in his head. This was defiantly some cruel joke!

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 ...

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gre...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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.
