Who's John ShinRa?

By AchikaMiyu

Romance / Adventure

Brothers

“You know you don’t have to do this, it’s my job to be there.”

“I understand Mr. President, but it’s my job to protect you. That’s why I must go in case Meteor falls on Midgar,” the blond-haired man said solemnly. “Our father would want you to live to ensure ShinRa’s survival.”

The other blond-haired man visibly shuddered in disgust at the mention of their father. “Very well. But know that I’m doing this for you, not ShinRa. I hope that we’ll meet again,” as he extended his hand.

The other man gripped it firmly and looked sternly at his half-brother, “I want you to hide in my apartment until the incident has been contained and it’s safe for you to return to office.”

“It’ll never be safe for me, but I’ll make sure to take whatever precautions to ensure my livelihood.”

The man released his grip on the other man’s hand satisfied with the answer he received. He turned his back on his half-brother and boarded the helicopter that would take him to Midgar. Straightening his white suit as the helicopter was lifting up into the air; he turned his attention to the window where he saw the fading image of Rufus on the helipad.

Almost all his life he aspired to be like his brother. He even had to dye his hair to become Rufus’s mirror image. He wanted his power, his influence and the attention of their father: things Rufus never lacked. But he wasn’t the son of the late Isabel ShinRa; he was the son of a cheap whore at the Honeybee Inn. A whore who became a princess for one night and thought she gave birth to a prince.

Prince John ShinRa wasn’t even a title he could honorably wear, at least not one that the late President ShinRa allowed him to. His brother was the true prince and he was the fake. All he could do was wear the crown from time to time to protect the real prince from harm. John closed his eyes and concentrated on changed his facade since he had to pose as his brother while in Midgar. It always felt refreshing to have all this power: power that would be his if Rufus weren’t around. His lips turned into a smirk as he grabbed his cell-phone to set a plan in motion that would let him keep his brother’s crown.

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

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...

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 ...

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .

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...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
