The Divine wings of Tragedy

I was alone. Alone as any being could ever be, around me corpses lay scattered with slight traces of the life they had held. How I envy them. See everyone fears death, fears not waking up, fears... not being. But as I kneel in this forgotten wasteland dagger lodged in my chest I feel... aware. See death is terrifying cause it takes what you love family, friends, and more importantly experience. However even though it takes those from from an individual it also takes pain, tragedy, and more wretchedly, experience. Maybe that's why people call death cold, it is totally unbiased it doesn't judge you it doesn't ask why just pulls the cord. What a wonderful thing... But it seems to have passed me by and left me with my own company... lovely. What to do now what to do now. "We could go ground that bitch"., Hm... whats the point? "She stabbed you in the heart and left you to die in this fucking no mans land". Yes but we kinda expected that. "Goddamn you emo motherfucker don't you feel any rage at all?". A little but following that path always brings me here. "What's happened to you? you used to be so alive so malicious so full of righteous scorn for the world. Now look at at you nothing, no one, worthless.". These things keep happening to me bringing me down lower each time whats the point of my gratification if it always costs this misery? "Everything has a cost, and every time you pay the cost you going to ask, was this worth it?". is it? "Abso- fucking-loutley no one can soar as high as you can you may fall low but when they see you flying it reminds them of the goddamned magic this universe is made of.". I suppose your right... "Of course I'm right! now the real question is what are we going to do?". I suppose I could pull this knife out of my chest. "I asked you what we are going to do not how where getting there". I don't know. "Bullshit you don't know, you know exactly you want, revenge. you want the feeling of knife ribboning, you want the debt paid in full. So, what are you going to do?".

I'm going to light fire that lights up this universe so that every living thing knows the cost of betraying my company.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

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...

minallie: One word, brilliant

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...

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 ...

Megan King: This book is absolutely amazing, it kept me on my toes through the entire book. I hope there is a second book. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, action or romance because it is full of all three 💕

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

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...

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.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...
