You Have GOT to be Kidding, a Girl, Coming Here?

By Fenton Hardy Fan

Humor / Adventure

Prologue

She sat outside the house, gazing up at the stars. Overhead, a distant plane's blinking lights momentarily tricked her into thinking she saw a shooting star. Raising a hand, she tucked a strand of dark hair back where it belonged. Mixed scents of growing plants, decomposing organic matter, and tepid water blew towards her on the warm and gentle breeze. Insects chirped and buzzed quietly in the distance. Many years had passed since she bothered to appreciate the beauty of a swamp-side winter's night, now she felt it all as if for the last time.

Behind her, muffled footsteps approached, and then a warm body sat down beside her own, shoulder to shoulder. "Is everything arranged?" the man asked as he placed an arm around her.

She nodded. "Toronto. He'll be leaving after Natalie."

"She won't know he's not with us?" the low voice asked quietly.

"No, I thought it would be safer this way, for both of them." For a moment, all was still, even the insects seemed to quiet down. "Are we right? Is this what we should do? People have told us over and over again we're too protective of our own, that we need to let go. But I've always believed we were right to watch over them, so how can we be sending them away? So far away..." Leaning into the protective form beside her, she rested her head on his shoulder.

"It's what parents do," whispered the man, "what they've always done. We sacrifice everything so our children may live in safety, even the pleasure of their company."

"I know," she breathed, "I know."

MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

macyjf4: This book is the best romance book I've ever read. To great characters to an amazing plot, I would highly recommend it. Although some words were spelled incorrectly, I'm sure they were typos. If I could give this book a thousand stars, I would.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

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 ...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

Elizabeth Krohn: I really enjoy the story but the Dursley's hate for Harry to just disappear is not very realistic and does seem to OC for me. Dudley, i can see changing due to the dementor incident but the other two ... not so much.For breeding purposes Luna and severus should have kids to have another Hogwarts...

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...

Madison O'Neal: Although the book may be good the grammar is horrid and it's hard to concentrate on the story when having to correct the mistakes of the author I suggest the author go back and correct things to improve the enjoyment of the book overall and the app should proof read things before they are publish...
