In the skies, she was alone. Hiroko loved the deep blue around her. She remembered the moment when she was born. The sun and the clouds felt so warm around her body. Hiroko felt love in Kami’s arms. He watched her grow into the beautiful lone wind spirit that she had become. Still, it wasn’t enough. Kami noticed her feeling sad one day.
“Hiroko-chan, what is the matter?” he asked.
“I am so lonely,” she said.
“I have no one to love.” Hiroko placed her hands to her chest. Over the years, she saw mothers bonding with their children. She wanted to feel the same warmth that they felt. Kami patted her on the head.
“You want to be a mother?” he asked.
“Yes. I want to be able to make my own child.”
Kami ran his thin, airy fingers through her long brown hair. He wanted to see his little wind princess happy. If a child was what she wanted, a child she shall get. Kami smiled. “I will see what I can do.” Hiroko bowed her head with a little smile on her face.
“Thank you,” she murmured.
Kami blessed Hiroko with the ability to create children. However, she was unaware of this at the time. She did her job and waited to have children. The wind spirit did her best to fulfill her duties to the earth. The whole time, she waited in her heart. She even prayed that she would find the right partner to have a child with. One day, she was helping put out new clouds in the sky.
“Could please get the cutters from the top drawer?” Kami asked.
“Okay,” Hiroko said. She glided over to the chest in the shed. The wind spirit pulled open the thick, heavy oak drawer.
“Be careful,” Kami said. “The blades are really…”
“Ow!” she yelped as her finger slid across the newly sharpened blade.
“…Sharp,” he finished. Hiroko drew back her finger and tried to suck on the wound. However, one drop of blood escaped to the ground. Kami came over to her side.
“Let me take a look,” he said. As Kami examined Hiroko’s finger, they heard a small sneeze.
“Bless you,” he said.
“That wasn’t me,” Hiroko said. Kami froze as he looked up.
“Then who was…” They turned their heads to see a little girl standing inches away from them. She was naked with long white hair. The paleness of her skin could rival the sun. When the child opened her eyes, Hiroko fell in love.
“Oh!” she said. “She is so precious!” The wind spirit walked over to the little girl. “What is your name?” The child stared at her with empty eyes. “Never mind.”
“You finally have your own child,” Kami said. Hiroko looked up with a curious look in her eyes.
“Huh?” she asked.
“She was born out of your blood,” he said. “Therefore, she is now your beautiful daughter.” Hiroko turned to the little girl in her arms. When the child stared into her eyes, she fell in love all over again. She gave the child another hug.
“I guess you are right,” Hiroko said. “She is my child.”The little girl hugged her back. In six weeks, the child grew to love her new “mother”. From then on, every year, a new wind chi was born from the blood of Hiroko and her daughters and sons. Pretty soon, they almost filled the sky as the clouds did. Their mother was finally fully happy.

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...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...
Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...
OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

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...
Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...
