A bond

Romance / Fantasy

A bond

They say that when life surprises us, we are astounded but when these surprises become a part of life, we stop being flabbergasted by them, especially if they have been with us since the moment we knew who we were and often regarded these strange occurrences as our imagination but is it always so?

The answer to the above question was discovered one windy night with the cold tinge to the atmosphere when two babies woke up with shrill cries and tears in their eyes wails coming out of their tiny mouths as their parents ran in trying to calm their charges, whose eyes had for one second changed colours, the boy's hazel ones turning to a deep emerald green and the girl's green eyes turned to a gold flecked hazel colour when suddenly they stopped. A stillness surrounded the atmosphere, looking as if the entire world was waiting to see what would happen when with one all mighty wail, both the infants fell silent, creating a pin drop silence in two houses, miles apart yet connected by the souls of the youngest in there.

"What do you think could have been the cause of this Dorthea?" A tall man with clumsy hair that stuck up at the back and brown eyes covered with glasses asked looking at the slighter smaller red hair woman with hazel eyes that mirrored her sleeping son's.

"A storm Charlus, what else? James must have heard the storm and woken up," Dorthea said, though her eyes held that same worry as the eyes of her husband and unknown to her, the eyes of two parents in a small town near Spinner's End.

"Mumma, what's wrong with Li?" a two year old asked her Mother the next day, looking at the small red head whom her father was holding and making faces at. Despite the jealousy Petunia Evans felt at the attention being diverted from her, her love for the screaming infant made her go and help her father try to soothe her sister.

"Li, you no cry. I am your best fwiend," the black haired girl said using the limited vocabulary she had learnt and soon the red head smiled and fell asleep, just like another boy in a huge manor house who had been shushed by both his parents too and this continued for the next four years until the magic of the children developed enough for telepathy to occur. However, like most surprises, this too came as a surprise and let's just says that it isn't the most pleasant thing to hear someone else's voice in an empty dark room while you hid from your sister, during hide and seek.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

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. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

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!

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

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 ...

Shreya Biswas: Finally god...... I was tired of Charissa doubting Frederick's love... yes.. All's well that ends well.... i was getting really downright agitated at the author because the suspense was held really well on how things will work out in the epilogue and i just wanted them to have a happy ending.. An...
