Strange Encounter : Winxy, Witchy but True!

Strange Encounter : Winxy, Witchy but True!

What I'm about to tell you actually took place this Wednesday. I will sware to you upon anything you care to mention that this really happened.

I was on the bus going home from school. It was hot, hazy and humid. The bus was crowded to capacity and even though I had managed to get a seat, I was almost cramped against the wall by the person next to me and there were people crowed in the aisles. I was reading a book trying to ignore the heat and stuffiness of the bus. I look up from my book and I find that I am looking at the backside of a tall, willowy and leggy young woman. She was wearing tight faded blue-jeans and a military cut short sleeved blouse. She had blondish-brown hair so severely pulled back against her skull that it must have been painful that ended in a short pony-tail midway down her neck. Then I started looking at her ears that were delicately curved ending in not quite points but close enough as to make no odds. The bus stops and people start debarking. She turns around and I am staring at a bare midriff with the best cut abs I have ever seen then into an ivory heart-shaped face with a delicately pointed chin, high cheek bones, and the most beautiful but cold and piercing ice-blue eyes one could want to imagine. I am thinking, "Wow!" She moves to the seat behind me and I am desperately trying to think of something to say. Finally, I blurt out to her, "Have you ever considered letting your hair grow really long and trying it up in a high ponytail? I bet you could really carry off the style."

She looks at me and says, "You're funny."

So I take out my cellphone on which I have stored a few pictures of a certain witch we all know from Cloud Tower and show one to her.

"Like this," I tell her.

"Do you think I really look like her?" she asks.

"Yes," I say.

"You're funny," she says, blushes and looks embarrassed.

So I think that maybe the smart thing to do is to just turn around and behave myself. So I do. The bus then arrives at my stop and she gets off and so do I. But she turns and heads off swaying and swivelling in the direction of the condo complex. It was getting late for dinner so I have to head the opposite direction towards my apartment building. I cross the street and find that she also has crossed the street and was swaying and swivelling into my apartment building... so I follow her. The elevator is already at the ground floor and open and she sways and swivels in... and so I follow her. The elevator is full of people and I can't get up the nerve to talk to her. But she is looking askance at me because I am so excited that I was almost dancing on the spot and I was probably wearing a big, goofy grin plastered from ear to ear that must have made me look like I definitely had a few screws loose and was lacking more than just a few marbles upstairs. The elevator stops, she gets off... and so do I. She turns to the right... and so do I. By now she is really looking over her shoulders and beginning to lengthen her stride. At that moment, it finally filters through to this brain of mine what it is she must be thinking. (Now everyone say together with me. "Duuuuh!") So I call out to her, "Believe it or not, I actually live here," and to prove the point, I put my key in the lock and open my door. Then I turn around but only in time to see blue eyes and a pretty smile vanishing behind a closing door. She has been living across from me all this time and I didn't know. (Everyone together now. "Duuuuh!") One thing now is for sure. If I get to see her again soon, I will not waste a second chance to ask Icy out on a date.

And that's my story – strange but true.

Your Scop and Teller of Tales,

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

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.

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...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

Alkira Joan: Great story, I found it hard to read especially the dialogue. You just need to fix up some spelling errors and the gramma .I enjoyed this book. was a little hard to get though.,.,..,.,.,,..,.,.,, , , , ,.,, , , , , , , ,., , ,.,,,,,

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 ...

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...

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 . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

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...

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.
