Rising Darkness

By AnniePad

Adventure / Romance

Prologue


When did her life became like...this.

Rey stared at her reflection in the luxurious mirror, embed with gold and expensive gemstones in front of her. She stared unblinkingly at the reflection, at the woman clad in a black, sleeveless dress made out of silk that clung to her body perfectly, brown curls hanging loosely over her shoulders, and wondered not for the first time, when did her life change. Not even a year ago she was a scavenger on Tatooine, making for a living by rummaging in old Imperial Star Destroyers, now scattered through the deserts, remnants of a time long gone, before she was born.

Then in the same desert she found a droid, BB-8 calling for help, trying to free himself from the net a vicious Jawa trapped him in.

If she didn't help the little droid would she still be on Tatooine?

Would she still be struggling to survive, living in a fallen AT-AT covered with sand, without friends-not that she had them now eater.

Still, Rey cannot help but wonder how her life would have turned out if she didn't escape with Finn and BB-8. If she never came to Jakku and if she was never captured...

Sighting, she smoothed the dress and turned towards the single door in the room. Few steps separated her from the new life she was about to discover.

Would it be a better one? Or a worse one?

There was no room for such thoughts. The past was in the past. She had to get over with this. Taking shaky steps, she stepped in front of the door and reached her hand to open it, but only to take a step back when the door opened by itself.

No, not by itself, but with the single being in the other room.

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...

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...

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...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

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...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real.

jessiealexandrap: Truly loving the novel, each chapter presents itself greater than the one beforehand. I truly love the novel and give definate question to why it's not published of yet. The novel truly deserves great attention and all should read the beautiful story.
