Chapter 1

Chapter 1 

I let out a yawn, I looked at my clock, it was pass three A.M., I could feel my eyes get really heavy. I let out another yawn as I quietly dragged my feet towards my dresser to get a pair of Pj's before I go to bed, and trying not to step on my dog, who was sleeping on the floor near my door. I open one of my dressers drawers and grabbed a pair of blue Pj's pants which had white poke dots on them and then I grab the Pj's long sleeves fluffy top, which is a nice light blue color, and quickly and quietly got dress trying not to make any noise because my step mom has super hearing, and I don't want to get in trouble for staying up late pass my bed time. I then sneak into my bed covers which are a nice cobalt blue. But at night my bubble blue painted walls looked dark grey bluish, almost a deep blue lake. I could feel myself becoming uneasy. 

"Maybe watching that last episode of Ghost Hunt was a really bad idea, I'm probably going to get zero sleep." I thought to myself.

As I closed my eyes, my other dog who was sleeping downstairs, began to bark and whine. I could hear my step mom open up her bedroom door which she shared with my dad. I didn't make a move as I watch as  she walked by my doorway and went down stairs to let Jack out, while Nicky popped her head up looking around the room, but quickly placed her head back down. Then I could hear my step mom tell Jack to come back in. I could hear her footsteps walking up the stair case at a steady pace. Then she came to my door, I quickly closed my eyes and didn't move and let myself have even breathing.  I could hear my door creak open and my step mom poked her head in to see if I am a sleep. She didn't notice anything because I shut down the computer before going to sleep. She then closed the door to my bedroom and went back to her bedroom. 

That is when sleep caught me in its web, but as soon as you close your eyes that is when the Nightmare strikes.

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well.

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me.

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

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.

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,.
