Of Nights

Choose, you say.
Choose the one I will give to you. The one that will take you away.

Choose as if they were some type of good that I can barter with. As if they don't have any say in the matter. As if I could choose between my right hand and my left. How could ask this of me? How dare you? You have no right, you have no right to tear our makeshift home apart with such a demand. All that we have are each other. 

I am only fifteen and yet I am not some stupid little girl. I know that you could never be what I am to them, since you are blind in more ways than one. And Sara, you don't even know it.

If Jin walked by your side, how would you know that he likes eel more so than fish and that when he is full from eating he always folds his arms back into the sleeves of his kimono? How would you know that he wipes his glasses off counterclockwise, first with the left lens and then the other? Could you differentiate the meanings between his monosyllables? Or his silences? Could you even protect him from his loneliness, from his quiet despair of finding something to live for, even if he still has no idea that he is so vulnerable because of these things?

But if it was Mugen…if I let…Mugen. Could you hit him in the right places so he shuts up with his infernal snoring? Have you any idea what a total JERK he is when it comes to bimbo women and their big boobs? Can you not hear the total garbage that comes out of his mouth? The things that he calls me? How I sometimes feel like I just want to throttle some common decency into him? Do you know how infuriating his smirk is when he does something completely ridiculous and stupid?!

Are you aware that Mugen has always been the first one to come and save me? Always. Always. Can you not understand that?

It's time for now it is morning and I have had no sleep. You, Jin, and Mugen are waiting for my answer. In my heart I know that from now on everything will be different between us because I chose one over the other. But now that I think about it, maybe I have no choice at all. I think you have always known which one I will give to you Sara, since you know what it means to love. I can't help it. It's just not fair.

Maybe I was wrong. Maybe you are not as blind as I say. Maybe you are not blind at all.

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

Melissa Barras Trahan: If you enjoy reading a thriller with twists and turns, this is the book for you. When you think you have the story figured out.....the author surprises you and then the whole story changes again until the very last page! The further along I got, the faster things changed. Even though this is a ...

KC_Ward: Black Mark was one of the most interesting romance novels I have read. I really enjoyed the fact that Mora has such a strong character and held her ground. Each character had a background story that gave clues as to what shaped their personalities. This novel was almost like two books rolled into...

vanellesapp: It was so amazing to read this book each part was entertaining.It is that kind of love every body will like to have.I will have like the explanation on how they did it the first time to be more explicit but apart from that it is perfect

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

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...

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.

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...

salma elsamy: it's really awesome , and I really like the whole idea of the story . I also love how simple the vocabularies because English is my second language and the simplicity of the story is great for me . And I will definitely buy it if it's published.

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...

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...

austinl0724: This was a fantastic story! I loved the twists and turns. The theological concepts were pretty interesting and the themes were intriguing! A few grammatical errors and some slower parts, but overall it was an amazing read which kept me up for some late nights because I couldn't put it down! I hop...

Lora Georgieva: Alpha Kaden is definitely one of the best stories I've ever read. Once you start reading it you just can't get away from the amazing characters and their exciting story. I love the whole series and recommend it to everyone who is fan of fantasy and romance
