Failure

By MewtwoOnAFlyingApe

Drama / Horror

Failure

The soothing lull that had once resounded with brillance around me had been taken away and replaced by the overwhelming stench of death. No matter what I would do, what I could do, I could not change any of the events that would follow. No matter how many times I went back over and over and over again, nothing could be achieved. Ever. My mind, heart, and soul had been damaged beyond repair, been stretched too far too many times. Everything in me wanted to scream with pain. Even though I was in no physical pain, my mental pain was pure agony.

I had failed the people that I had come with. I had failed them. They couldn't remember why I'd failed them, or the dozens of other times we were in the same predicament. Because I had decided to travel back in time over and over and over again, I had to lie to them. They had no idea what I was doing. They had no idea that I had gone back over and over and over again to the point where I was forgetting my past life. I even forgot how I met... what was his name again? I can't seem to remember... All I can remember is that I loved him. And he left.

But I had failed so many people, so many nations...

Alfred F. Jones, the personification of the United States of America.

Arthur Kirkland, the personification of England, or since his brothers refused to come to any meetings, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Francis Bonnefoy, the personification of France.

Matthew Williams, the personification of...Canada...Wait, who?

Ivan Braginski, the personification of Russia.

Yao Wang, the personification of China.

Gilbert Beilschmidt, the personification of the nonexistant nation Prussia. I'm glad he survived when his nation was abolished. I think it may have something to do with the fact that his capital city still stands as part of Russia...maybe?

Kiku Honda, the personification of Japan.

And, oh God, I had failed Ludwig Beilschmidt. Otherwise known as the personification of Germany.

If you're wondering about me... I'm Feliciano Vargas, the personification of Northern Italy. And I have failed every person I've ever cared about.

I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet.

ElusiveBadwolf: This book was so beautiful to read. I loved how Lizzy was finishing Hayden's list off for he self couldn't complete it and now she is learning to move on.

Grapes Are Juicy yes!!!: I give this novel FIVE STARS ! This novel is worth reading from the beginning to the end! The plot and conflicts in this story are very smartly integrated. The language facility is a little odd , but i guess this was done on purpose, given the novel's set era. Other than that, this should definit...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming).

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...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

lillek8: I really liked this book. I enjoyed the heroine being an absolute badass. She was at times, really annoying. But she is a teenager when this novel begins. I'm sure I was annoying at that age too. I really loved all of the secondary characters. The author built an entire world that I couldn't get ...
