Chapter 1: Into the Rift

A young, fair-skinned man sporting a brown flat top, vibrant green eyes, and wearing a leather jacket over an otherwise normal outfit of a polo shirt, khakis, and plain black shoes, walks through a building that seems to be a sort of museum. As he walks, he looks left and right with a child-like curiosity gleaming in his expression, but he doesn't seem to be looking for anyone based on his silence. Suddenly he stops, looks at the wall to his right, and smiles.

Approaching the wall, the young man kneels to look at a mysterious, round shadow, or shadowy 'thing' since nothing is casting it, and smiles as a voice projects from the shadowy section of the wall.

“Good afternoon Arik. Tell me, is your mother's condition improving?” The young man, Arik, loses his smile and hangs his head in response to the wall's question of concern, to which the wall replies,

“I see. So how is she then?” Arik takes a deep breath, and stutters over his dammed up emotions before managing to say,

“She passed away this morning, Kira. Then father took his own life. He was so insecure when his wife wasn't around that he couldn't bear living without her. I'm...” Tears start to flow, cracking the dam of his feelings.

“I'm all alone now.” The wall doesn't respond immediately, but when it does it asks,

“Well what about me? I'm no parent, but I'm a good friend...right?” Arik thinks about it, and with a puzzled expression, asks,

“What are you talking about? Kira, you're a wall!” The wall again pauses before saying,

“If I was a wall, I wouldn't be speaking to you, or worrying about you, or doing anything. Arik, I'm not a wall. I'm in the wall.” Arik doesn't know what to say right away, but eventually he comes to ask,

“Can you show me who you are, then?” The wall, or rather Kira, the being inside the wall, replies by saying,

“Sorry, but I can't yet. But I'll tell you what. Try to come here at midnight, when no one's around. If you can get here then, I'll show you. I'm sorry for this Arik, but if I were to show myself now, people would freak out in all kinds of bad ways.” Arik nods and says,

“I understand. Okay, I'll try to be here at midnight. Hopefully I'll see you then, and I mean that literally.” He then moves on to other things so he doesn't draw too much attention by talking to himself for too long.

Midnight draws near quickly, and Arik makes his way back to the building. It's closed and guarded, as usual for this time of night, but he carefully sneaks past security, determined to meet this friend of his for the first time. Returning to where he always speaks to Kira, he waits a moment before asking,

“Kira? Are you there?” A shadowy form bulges out of the wall and touches Arik before taking form as an exact replica of the young man.

“Hello Arik. Believe it or not, I am from a parallel world. I am you from that world. That's why my name is yours spelled backwards.” Attempling to wrap his head around what he was told, he asks,

“So it's a reverse world?” Chuckling, Kira pulls himself out of the wall before saying,

“Oh, no. It's just that the names of the inhabitants of either world happen to be the inverse of those of the other world. That much is true, but it has no relation to anything else in the worlds.” Suddenly a clearly amused laugh echoes around Arik and Kira. The laughter, as it turns out, comes from a being who had been watching them while hidden in plain sight. Revealing himself as being very pale, almost alien, the being says,

“Well, you two sure hit it off. However, there should only be one of any person in any given world. I'm here to correct the existing error.” Turning to Kira, he says,

“Kira. Come with me. You don't belong here.” Kira scoffs in defiance, and says,

“You've got to be joking, Nodoo. Me? Go with you? No, you leave and let us be.”

“I thought you'd say that.” The third individial, Nodoo says before crossing his arms. “But for that very reason, I came prepared to not leave without you.” Suddenly the space beneath Kira is distorted and torn open, starting to pull him into the rift.

“Well, Arik. I guess this is good bye after all.” Kira says as he starts to be pulled in. “I'm sorry.” Arik shakes his head, and grabs Kira's hand.

“I just met you and now I'm expected to say good bye? No! I won't!” Nodoo looks on before saying,

“Hey, brat! Don't interfere! This is solely the business of dimensional enforcement! If you continue to attempt to avert this, I will have no recourse but to force to to stop, however I have to!” Hearing this, Kira shakes off Arik's grip and says,

“Sorry Arik, I'm the one he wants. He won't take no for an answer and he certainly won't take any stragglers. Again, I'm sorry. I didn't expect him to find me so soon. I'd hoped he would take me back at a time when you weren't around.” He sighs and shakes his head. “Oh well. Listen Arik. Don't follow your father. It's not worth it. I've seen what happens. Now, I'm out of time, so I have one last thing to do.” With a smile, he tosses Arik a small pouch. “That's for you, my friend. Keep it safe. Good bye Arik!” Having said that, Kira let the rift take him, and after it closed behind him, Nodoo vanished. Out of curiosity, Arik opens the pouch and finds a bizarre necklace, the pendant of which is a kite shield.

“Strange.” Arik says before starting to look around. “Why would Kira say to keep this safe?” As he pondered that to himself, another rift opened in front of him. He wasn't watching where he was going, which is what Nodoo was counting on. He steps into the rift without realizing it was there, only to gasp as he is pulled into it. He struggles, and as he is swallowed by the rift he falls into an unconscious state. When the rift disappears, Nodoo appears again, and says to himself,

“Interesting. I never thought Kira would leave something so important to his world here. On top of that, he made it difficult for me to get ahold of Arik.” Chuckling to himself, he continues, “Well in any case, now we have both the Shield Key and Arik. Everything is going nicely; wouldn't you agree, Lord Blackheart?” Nodoo then vanishes to return through the rift, wanting to find Arik and Kira before they wake up.

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...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

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...
