Dreams the Wind Brings

Chapter 1

"Lillianna," He called out with a gasp.

A gale blew back in response as the girl stopped, painfully turning around to face him.

"Lillianna," He said, begging.

"It's been so long since I've heard that name," She answered, staring at the flowers they stood among.

"So long since I've heard . . . I almost forgot." She added.

He opened his mount, felt his mouth dry and shit it closed, swallowing the lump in his throat. He stood and watched her watch the flowers sway in the wind.

"Lillianna—" He took a step toward her, the wind violently blowing in response. He stopped,taking a step back, the lump in his throat larger.

"You were the only one who ever knew how to pronounce it right," She commented.


“Unless, I don’t know how it’s pronounced anymore,”

“Lillianna, please—”

“It’s been a while—”

"Stop diverting things, and listen to me Lillianna!" He yelled, "I'm sorry." He breathed immediately after. The wind died to barely a whisper. She looked up and he finally saw her for the first time, the lump in his throat weighing larger, choking him.


“You always had the habit of never letting me finish, you know.” He sighed, looking at her. She kept silent, the wind quiet around them. He felt his knees weak from her stare, just as always.

Once upon a time, she was akin to the goddess Diana, she was the night personified, he once always said; hair long and dark like the night sky, eyes large and bright like the moon, smile demure calming like the night and stars, her everything else the light that contrasted and allowed the night to be seen, she was silent as the night, enigmatic, beautiful.

There wasn't always a happily-ever-after though, he realized, staring at her once lovely face, now marred with wounds that refused to heal, tears — or blood, he couldn't tell — dirtied her, and bandages clothed almost the entirety of her delicately small body — a cloud of smoke and fog covering the light in the night sky. 

She was a book where life wrote its beauty, her pages torn out and ripped, blood poured over her words and pictures.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

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...

Jevron Macalino: You started the story after Chuck Vs. the Fake Name happened and I like your version more than I like the original one. The five or so episodes after the fake name should not have happened that is why I like your version better. I hope you will continue writing Chuck & Sarah's story from where y...

Carolyn Hahn-Re: I really liked this story! The writing was well done, and the plot was suspenseful. I couldn't stop reading chapter after chapter, on the edge of my seat! The characters were well developed, and true to form. Thank you so much for this wonderful read.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

M.L. Bull: Hello, Aalia!Your story compelled the emotional pain and struggle of a teenage girl very well.. The imagery was also convincing and well-written, showing the different personalities of your characters and their actions. However, I do think that many of your sentences are too lengthy and could use...
