The 8th Ghost: Gracie Raven Raggs

Chapter 1: Introducing Raven Nightshade

Her eyes opened to see herself surrounded by water in a familiar giant cylinder tank with the equally familiar breathing mask on her face. Looking up she saw scientists staring down at her from their deck with a silver haired man wearing what looked like a military uniform and cap in a theme of black and dull gold standing behind them.

So I have traveled back in time,’ the young girl thought to herself. She looked back down at herself to be greeted by her 10 year old body, ’good thing I’m at the beginning of my dead life since I don’t feel a pulse in my own body’ She glanced back at the tank to see the water going down around her and saw some of the scientists and the silver haired man coming down from the deck.

When the water was drained from the tank and the mask came off, the doors opened allowing the girl to step out into the room. One of the scientists handed her a dress in a dark blue color. Putting the clothes on she saw the sliver haired man, with the amethyst eyes, walk towards her. She knew who this man was, Ayanami, her father. She was about to get her name from him and see her precious person for the first time.

“Your name is Raven Nightshade, you are my 10-year-old daughter and you are the 8th Ghost, Azrael” he said with a cold tone of voice, “you will be trained in zaiphon use, as well as your Ghost powers. Dr. Takashi has agreed to look after you while you live in this lab,” he said, gesturing to a man in a lab coat. He continued saying, “When you are 12, you will be enrolled into the military academy, where you will disguise yourself as a boy. Do I make myself clear?” He questioned, making sure she got all he was asking of her.

“My name is Raven, your daughter and the 8th Ghost, Azrael. I will be trained in zaiphon use, as well as my powers, Dr. Takashi will look after me while I live in this lab. I am to disguise myself as a boy when I am enrolled in the academy at 12, father.” She said, in a soft tone of voice. She saw Ayanami’s eyes widen in surprise at the sound of her voice, as if he didn’t think her voice would be like that of a melody. She knew that it reminded him of Eve’s whom her mother, Teito Klein, was the reincarnation of. He managed to wipe the surprise from his eyes to say.

“Good, Dr. Takashi will you take her to her room so that she can rest before meeting my subordinates,” Dr. Takashi nodded and motioned for her to follow him. She followed him down an empty hallway until he stopped at a door. Opening it he motioned for her to go in first. Stepping into the room she saw a bed, dresser, desk, and a full length mirror. Walking until she was in front of the mirror, she saw standing at what looked to be 5’1 and wearing a sleeveless dark blue dress, a pale skinned lithe girl, with dark brown hair that framed her heart-shaped face and fell to her thighs, and amethyst eyes. Look back in the mirror, she saw a light brown short haired man with green cat-like eyes, light tan skin and wearing a white lab coat over a white button up shirt with black pants and shoes.

“My name is Dr. Kano Takashi,” the man said, “I will need to get you dried off before I can let you sleep, though.” He opened the door he was in front of, with the light coming on when he opened it, to show a room with a toilet, sink, and a partially curtain covered shower/bathtub. She glanced at the clock on the dresser, seeing that it was 1 in the morning. She blinked and started to the bathroom feeling a shiver go through her body.

“Would be a g-g-g-good-d-d-d id-d-de-e-a AH-CHOO!!” she attempted to say before cutting off with a sneeze. She heard him chuckle a little at that before guiding her to sit at the edge of the tub. She looked to the sink to see that he put a change of clothes there for her. She blinked when her view was obscured by a fluffy white robe. When she got it from her face she looked questionably at the man in front of her.

“I need you to get out of that dress to dry yourself off and into the robe so I can dry your hair, we don’t want you to catch a cold after all” he explained at her look before turning his back to her. She peeled the dress off and dried herself quickly. Once she tied the robe around herself, she tapped the doctor on the shoulder to tell him it was ok to look now. He got a towel, brush, and hair dryer out to quickly dry her hair. Once that was done though he started doing something to her hair.

“I’m just braiding your hair so it doesn’t get tangled during the night. I’ll be out of your room since I would like to get some sleep before morning and you should as well” he explained as he finished the braid with a hair tie. He went out first and she followed right after, gazing at the clock she saw it was nearing 1:30 am. Glancing around the room she saw he had left, going back to the bathroom she got dressed in undergarments, shorts, and a long sleeveless shirt all in black. Shutting off the light in both the bathroom and bedroom, she crawled into bed falling asleep soon after.

AN: “Next time on Gracie Raven Raggs we will find out why she went back in time in the first place and her intro to the Black Hawks and maybe first training session! I hope you all read and review this story! Beetransfan ending transmission”

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

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...

Cassie Jacobson: So many twists and turns. Keeps you wanting to read to see what happens next. The main character is detailed well. The struggles and growth of Joby makes you admire her. It gives you a proud satisfied feeling while reading it. A refreshing difference then most books out there today, and in a w...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

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...
