Whispers of Nowhere

By Shannon Rohrer All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy


When Gwen stumbles upon the artifacts her father brings home one night, she accidentally releases the powers locked within them. Now it is up to her and her two mysterious guardians to reclaim those lost powers—before they fall into the wrong hands. In a world ruled by gods, demons, and other mystical beings, the trio are in a race against time, with the fate of the world—of all worlds—hanging in the balance…


Forneus sat in the centre of the surveillance room, the only light in the otherwise cramped space provided by the ten, transparent images floating in the air, orbiting him like planets around the sun. From an amethyst cluster, to a winged staff; from an elegant sword, to a feathered crown, until finally the ten images came full circle, returning to the amethyst once again.

He muttered absently to himself, his eyes roving over each of the images while his long, thin fingers tapped the keys of the crescent-shaped console in front of him. He had just finished his hourly log when the whole system began to sputter, the projections wavering before vanishing completely. Pinpricks of light danced in his vision when the images flickered out, the room plunging into total darkness. The very projections he’d just been looking at continued to flash before his eyes, only now they were inverted like the negatives of photographs.

What’s going on?

Forneus was not easily panicked, but something in the way the blackness fell over the room had him spinning in a wide circle, his luminous, silver eyes darting every which way as he tried to catch a glimpse of whoever, or whatever, was responsible for his sudden lack of sight.

He never got the chance. Just as he’d begun to feel a familiar, warning prickle along the back of his neck, fatigue stole over him, his eyelids drooping heavily. It was as though his mind were mired in a fog, and he stumbled forward, his legs no longer able to support his weight. He landed face down on the hard, cool floor, a rush of air ghosting past his lips as he reached out toward the last image he’d seen before the system had gone down; that of a young, blonde-haired girl.

Forneus could feel himself being pulled into slumber, unable to fight against it as he watched the girl’s after image swim across his vision. A pang of guilt seized him as fat droplets poured from the child’s large, green eyes, a stuffed bear clutched to her chest.

I’m sorry…I failed…

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections.
