Pitch Black

The room was pitch back, but she had learned to maneuver around in the dark, so it no longer bothered her. In fact, she was nearly as proficient in the dark as she was in daylight. After she had learned to deal with the dark, there was an air about it that fascinated her. Something about it always seemed to just draw her in until she was completely ensnared.

She supposed that dark things had always drawn her in. After all, if they hadn't she would never have met him, nor would she be here, with her mission.

With that thought, she stopped, and quickly changed the course of her thoughts, she didn't want to think about what she was about to do.

Not thinking about it made it easier – not that it was ever easy, no matter how it looked to those outside. She had just learned how to do it quickly and efficiently, and deal with her feelings later when she was alone and safe. Feelings just got in the way, and drew her into situations that she never should have been in, in the first place. That was why she was teaching her self to remove all feelings, it made life easier.

With her thoughts and feelings safely closed off she snuck into the bedroom, being careful not to make a sound. She didn't want to wake the sleeping figure on the bed, not just yet anyway.

She moved across the room and stared down at the face of the man on the bed, examining the little that she could see from the strip of moonlight that came from the window. She supposed he could be what one would almost consider handsome, with his dark hair and smooth pale skin, all except for that thin scar across his throat. She didn't know why he was the target, but then again, she didn't ask. It wasn't her place to, she just did as she was told, and she was told to come here.

She got onto the bed, straddling him, letting her darker side take over. It was easier not to fight it. It was what she was trained for.

"Wakey, wakey, my dear," she whispered into his ear.

She felt his body jolt to wakefulness beneath her. She could just see him staring up at her, and she could tell that he knew exactly why she was there. There was something almost touching about him knowing that his demise was coming, and yet he did nothing to stop it.

She couldn't help herself as she leaned down and kissed him. She let his tongue slip into her mouth and explore her. In the midst of their very heated kiss she pulled out her knife and slit his throat. She could almost feel it as the life force fled his body, as she pulled back from. It was with tinge of regret that she watched his blood flow onto the leaf print sheets.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

kaac127: Personally, I loved this novel so much. You developed characters well, and your plot advancement was at the perfect pace. I've recommended it to several people so far and will continue to recommend it for some time. I want a sequel!!!!

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.
