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.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

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.

iann4701: I'm no expert but I know when I have read a good book and this was one. From the beginning it had me wondering where it was going next and what the outcome would be.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...
