My Nephew and His Stuffed Rabbit

I went home for a wedding a couple months ago. I timed it so I could spend a couple extra days staying with my sister and her family who live outside of Philadelphia. My sister has a son named Evan and he's a great kid. He's five years old and loves exploring. He always carries around a stuffed rabbit that he constantly talks to. "Thomas, let's go play with this!" "Thomas, let's go find some frogs!" I can't help but think of Calvin and Hobbes when I see Evan playing with Thomas. As I said, he's a great kid, but one problem is Evan never listens when my sister tells him not to go wandering off alone as he's always running off into the woods near the house. My sister has tried everything to get him to stop going off alone, but short of locking him in his room or tying him up, there's no stopping him. Evan just doesn't understand how dangerous the world is.

There had been a rash of kidnappings in the towns around where my sister lives. It really scared her especially when she wasn't sure where Evan was half the time. When I was there she got a call from the school-- Evan skipped taking the school van home and ran away. My sister asked me to stay home in case he came back and dashed to her car and went to try and find him. Fortunately after an hour he made it home. He was fine and skipped in with his stuffed rabbit (yeah, he brings it to school too). I called his mom while Evan ran to his room saying he had to do his homework-- a journal for writing practice. My sister came home relieved but furious. She went up to talk to him. After awhile she came down with his journal which had his longest entry yet. I fixed the spelling and punctuation but this is what it said:

Today a man said, "Come with me. Your mommy is sick."
But he was lying.
I said "Thomas, step on his foot." CRUNCH!
"Thomas, step on his knee." CRUNCH!
"Thomas, step on his back." CRUNCH!
"Thomas, step on his head." CRUNCH!
He was a bad man.

Later that night I went to talk to Evan. I asked "Did you and Thomas the rabbit meet a man today?" Evan looked at his stuffed animal, then back at me and laughed. "This isn't Thomas! That's Thomas!" and pointed above me, over my shoulder. No one was there but I could have sworn I felt breath on the back of my neck.

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.

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...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Caryn Moy: Love this series! Very well written, great plot and characters! I love time travel mysteries and this was different from anything I've read in the past! Bring on the sequel!!! I need to see the Compact get squashed!

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.

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette.

I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
