Doll Maker

The most difficult thing to achieve is to make them seem alive.

See that spark in their eyes; make their alabaster flesh supple and tender. And warm. They have to be warm, oh so warm, for them to be able to fall in love. In order for them to seem alive they have to be perfect in every way.

I am a master of my craft.

I labour over each creation. I put my time, my blood and my love into every stitch, every brush stroke, all so that they may fall in love. I have watched, as a father does, my creations go off into the world. Falling in love with young boys and old women alike. Seeing as their eyes would light up and colour would rush to their cheeks, as the people taking them in their arms held them tight. I let their happiness wash over me and I bask in the love that I have created.

After the unions cease, after their love stops filling my quaint home, I am content. For I have my work to return to, and such work to do!

When their love leaves this place, I return to my masterpiece, my love. I have laboured over her for years, carefully and painstakingly creating my own love. Her alabaster flesh is soft and pure, but cold, oh so cold. The stitches refuse to heal. Her eyes have no spark yet, but I am working tirelessly to return it to them, praying that the love pouring out of me is enough to fill them. I am a master of my craft, but the most difficult thing to achieve is to make her alive again.

I may only be 14 but all we've always been told is that there the "special kids" that they have "issues", basically that they weren't normal. If we were to associate wi...

Mellissa Young-Ramirez: The story had enough description for imagination and lots of situations to be creative with while keeping me guessing the whole time as to some plot twists.

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Hayley: Beautiful story that has been well written. Something I will definitely read again. I loved how you could feel the tension between them and I loved the ending because It left it open to our imagination. I look forward to seeing to reading further stories by the same author.

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.

emmawioskowski: Amazing book! I can hardly put it down!! I hope it gets published. From a writers point of view the detail is great, and the writing style is awesome. I haven't finished yet, but when I do I bet the ending will be just as good

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. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

If you fancy a read with a slightly different perspective from the norm then I would certainly give this book a read. I will look o...

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...

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...
