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.

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...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

Judy Haun-Morelock: A very imaginative, compelling story that captivates and holds your attention. Just how will the new Joshua deal with all the changes in his life: his appearance, surroundings, new friends and enemies.

maryahbeebe66: OMG I fell in love with the story and how the characters fall into place. I'm really excited to read more into the story and hope there's a sequel to it. My fav characters are Dylan and Laila. Your doing a great job keep it up 👏🏾

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

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

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.

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...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

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 ...
