Chapter 1

Hello, I'm guessing you're not used to the main character of the story addressing you. Well... normally you would be right, but this case is different. This is my account of the event that lead to me discovering something evil; I'm not quite sure what they are; I just know that they kill humans and any other living creature as a hobby, but that includes each other. If you finish this I will tell you something at the end; but, you need to wait for that. For now I'll tell you this. My name is Red, I suffer from a unique curse that is killing me, but at the same time keeping me alive; because of this I can see these, creatures, for now let's refer to them as Leftovers. I don't have any memory of my life before these moments so I'll be starting you off as far back as I can remember.


I was lying down on something rather soft, but it wasn't too comfortable, it was actually kinda of awkward having my legs propped up on something that was both soft and hard at the same time. I decided to try to move but no avail, if I had actually managed to move, it probably would have hurt because I yelped from the pain of just attempting to move.

Right after I yelped, I heard a loud snort and a stomp. It was like someone was sleeping and I accidentally woke them up. I heard some footsteps and tried to move my head around to get a better of idea of where they were. They stopped for a second and started to say something; it sounded like a young woman and her voice was both soothing and made me nervous at the same time.

"You're awake. Yes?" She said this while grabbing my foot.

I couldn't seem to find my voice when she said it but I tried to answer by nodding.

“Quiet. Good, I like that, though it would've been better if you didn't wake up at three in the morning. Now as for details let's try to get you up first.” Right after she said this, she came over and put her palm against my back and pushed me forward.

While she pushed me up my vision went red and it hurt all over. I ended up letting out a small yelp; it was pitiful, and I felt embarrassed even though I didn’t even know where I was or who I was yet.

“That must’ve hurt; I would say that you haven't healed entirely but the wounds haven't opened back up, so that's good.

Now I don’t want to remove these bandages just yet. Could you answer a few questions for me?” When she asked me I just nodded my head.

“Now, just nod yes or no. Can you recall anything of your past?” I shook my head no. “Ok. It’s either a case of amnesia, you're faking it, or you're still in a daze. I won't mark anything down for sure. Alright, I’ll raise up the bed so you don’t need to strain yourself any further.” I heard her get up and pull a rather squeaky lever, then I felt the soft but somehow uncomfortable padding touch my back. I savored it since it let me relax again and the pain slowly faded away.

While I laid there I heard her writing something, I didn’t know what but I didn’t particularly care either. I heard a door open and turned my head towards the direction the sound came from. A man's voice came from the door and he sounded half asleep.

“Hey, why’d you call me this early in the morning?” He asked her this; I guess she didn’t tell him the reason for him to come over.

“She woke up; it took eight months but she seems to have recovered enough to regain consciousness. Moving on her own isn’t possible yet, but she seems to have improved. She also might have a bad case of amnesia.” That’s what she told him so I assumed she asked him to come over about me.

“Well that’s good I guess. But why didn’t you tell the Pathfinder first.” He did sound really confused.

“You should tell him, I had an argument with him and he’s kinda steamed.” The way she said that sounded like there was still some anger deep down.

I heard the door shut so I assumed he either left without saying anything or there was an exchange of expressions to signal something. I must’ve fallen asleep right after because everything’s kinda blank.

Jhiane Rabang: The story was so interesting. I loved how the story has plot twists that I can't expect. IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND A BOOK LIKE THIS so I suggest you read this book and I will tell you that it is worth every single second while you read this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the story.

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...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

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.

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...

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...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.
