By Noizchild

Other / Horror

Blurb

First season of D.Gray-Man section of Wasteland saga. The devil Road kidnaps the angel Allen and breaks him into her ideal slave. However, he with a few other angels try to escape.

Children's Lullaby

Key Zero: Children's Lullaby:

Little field mice run around in the dry grass. They eat their wheat and grain while miles away the angels suffer in the Fallen City. The lucky little field mice don't know about the hell that they live in front of. They just eat, play, and breed in peace.

But once in a while, the mice cross the line into the Fallen City.

There is no grass there. Black as far as the eye can see. The ground becomes so rocky that their little feet start to hurt. The thin air hurts the little curious mouse in the city. They have to slow down to conserve air. The scent is usually enough to drive them back. Yet, some of them don't leave right away. The slower and slower they walk, the more the little mice feel the pain in their feet. It gets to the point that they cannot move anymore.

The air is so cold and dry, that the sugar in their little bodies starts to harden. Sweat breaks all over their little bodies. Their stomachs start to turn in pain.

I don't want to be here anymore!, they think to themselves. The mice are always lucky to run away before they die. They fleet to the dry grass outside of the city. The clean air always welcomes them back. The mice enjoy their grass and morning dew from the tree that shades them from the dim sun in the scattered sky.

The angels, on the other hand, are not as lucky to escape. They cannot leave the Fallen City. Their wings have been torn off of their backs and invisible chains on their ankles keep them within the grounds. There are nine circles before any unlucky soul makes it to the tower.

The angels trapped in the tower seem to have it better than those on the outside. Yet, this is only on the outside. Sure, they are taken care of inside, but not without a price. That price depends on the master that owns them. Most of the time it turns out to be rather humiliating on the angel's part.

So who owns this tower? No one really remembers anymore. The masters in the tower don't even know who their boss is. Maybe this is why there is no regulation in the city and the tower.

But, why are the angels there? How do they end up in that Hell? Who made the tower? Did this city used to be beautiful? How did it break down into decay? How long had it been like this? Does anyone even think about the Fallen City as the years go on? Does time even move in this place? The unanswered questions are rather endless. Yet, everyone that has not been taken by the despair around them tries to find the answers around them. Some of them even try to escape in vain. However, there is one clue that they angels fail to notice. The whole fallen city has something to do with the core of the Wasteland.

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

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...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Jessica: I loved the title of this story, and that is what got me hooked. But reading this from beginning to end, it was amazing. How the character changed from someone on two legs to an animal on four was great. The emotions on this story is one to be remembered. There are a few grammar things that need ...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
