A Friend's Courage

By Nina Guy

Fantasy / Action

Preface

Friends stick together to the end, no matter what.

That’s the saying, isn’t it? It’s supposed to mean that a friend’s bond is supposed to last forever, that your friend will always have your back no matter what. But that isn’t the case with me. My body’s been beaten, used for food, anything you can gruesomely imagine.

And now I’m alone.

Her words rang in my mind even as my body slowly gave way on itself. My heart broke slowly as the words that truly hurt me all those days ago still rang as though she had said that only now in front of me. The pain in my heart was nothing compared to the physical pain I endured. We’d gone through a lot and I suppose it had to end at some point soon, which seemed to be now. It was nice while it lasted, to know that I could have trusted her with my entire life for so many years, to have such a best friend through all of the hard times we went through. Once again, it was nice while it lasted.

Even now, in death, those happy memories flooded through me. Death seemed peaceful now, almost welcoming with these memories so filled with warm light and happy feelings. To think about our last parting would make my death sad and meaningless.

Friend stuck together to the end, no matter what… That’s not always the case, not with this story. You’ll see why…

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here.

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...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob.

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...

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...

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

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.
