Waking Up in Wonderland

By Noizchild

Thriller / Horror

Alpha

Halo Zero: Alpha:

She just talks on without listening. He sits quiet and listens to her talk on and on about useless things. That is all he has at this time.

She talks non-stop about her boring job at the office. She talks about her friends in the states and at work. She talks about her vanity and looks. She even talks about things that she saw on TV or heard on the radio. He sits there and listens in silence.

Why does he put up with so much useless drabble? That's all he can do. You see, he couldn't talk back to her. He has been rendered mute years before he met her. He cannot see her either. He has been blind for years now. He also can't feel anything physically or emotionally, never for a long time. He also can't remember anything about himself. The only memories that he has are the ones that he shares with her now.

However, his mind has a new level of hell locked inside of it. For now, it is only in bits and pieces. Even those bits and pieces are trying to reach out to other to rebuild the truth to him. Yet, he doesn't really want that to happen. He has run out of ways to stop the truth from reawaking upon the city that he calls home for the past three years. He does not want that to happen. But, he does not know how to stop it from happening all over again. He already spent up his previous options in the past. To bury the truth again the way that he always has will cost him dearly this time. It has all pushed him to sit and wait for the inevitable to swallow everything up once again.

In the mean time, all that he has is her talking his ears off until she leaves for work or goes to sleep.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

Kaitlyn Bier: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...
