Crash and Run

A young girl is running through the woods, she is wearing a deep crimson red hoodie, faded blue skinny jeans, and tall brown boots with flat bottoms rather than heels. Her face is mostly hidden by the hood, but a large tuft of soft strawberry blonde hair is sticking out. Around her neck is a silver necklace with a heart shaped charm. She looks to be running for her life and out of breath. Just as she rounds the corner, she ends up crashing into another kid. 

This kid that she bumped into was wearing a dark forest green hoodie. His dark blue and black hair is in his face after the crash. His pants are eggplant purple sweatpants with big pockets and he is wearing similar boots to the ones the girl s wearing, but his have more straps. He also has a necklace made of silver, his with a lightning bolt shaped charm.

"Oof! Hey! Watch where you're running!" the girl yells at him.

"I'm so sorry... I was so focused on getting away that I wasn't paying much attention... Are you alright?" the boy asks.

"Lucky for you, I am fine, yes! Now, what's this about getting away?" the girl asks.

"Uh... Ah... I didn't steal anything or anything of that sort of activity... Honestly!" the boy says, sweating nervously.

The girl sighs, "Good thing I have a hide out near here..."

She gets up and grabs him, pulling him quickly to a secret entrance in a large hollow tree. She covers the entrance with thick vines. The two kids wait in silence as they wait for who was chasing them to pass by. Heavy footsteps pass in both direction and then it is safe.

"So tell me, you thief, what is your name?" the girl asks the boy.

"My name is Sam, and why would it matter that I'm a thief?" the boy asks.

"Because, stealing is wrong!" the girl replies, "My name is Rose by the way."

"Nice name, Rose," Sam says and digs in his pocket for his stolen goodie.

"Look, Sam... I wish I could stay and help you out more so you wouldn't have to steal, but I really have to get going. I'm on a very important mission," Rose says, taking her hood off and revealing her face.

Sam looks up and smiles, "Your face is as pretty as your name. Now, I can't say much for myself..."

Sam removes his hood.

"Wow, you were just joking, right? I mean, you look excellent!" Rose says. 

"Okay... This just got awkward..." Sam says, blushing.

"Yeah... Sorry... Anyways, where are your parents?" Rose asks.

"My parents? Well... I recently found out that my parents weren't my real parents... And then they were taken away from me..." Sam says.

"Oh... I'm really sorry! I know this is just a coincidence, but the same thing happened to me... Just earlier..." Rose says.

Sam hugs Rose, "It's okay... The robots have been taking away everyone's parents..." 

"My mission,” Rose says, “is to find my real mother..."

"I'm looking for my mom too, maybe we can search together!" Sam says.

"Good idea! Thank you so much!" Rose says.

"No problem, we got to stick together. There is no way we can do this alone," Sam says.

serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.

Cassie Jacobson: So many twists and turns. Keeps you wanting to read to see what happens next. The main character is detailed well. The struggles and growth of Joby makes you admire her. It gives you a proud satisfied feeling while reading it. A refreshing difference then most books out there today, and in a w...

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

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...

CurlyRed: I read this entire book in just under 4 hours I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! i found myself emotionally attached to the characters and making personal connections that i had never experienced before while reading a book! I was constantly wanting to read more, every chapter left me on a cliff hanger tha...

Sarah Luongo: My friend recommended this to me and I was hooked immediately. The images and voices of these characters come so clearly in my head, which I love. I love seeing from all of these characters points of view, and still the book has a continuous flow. There are some punctuation and grammar mistakes, ...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Liam Butler: I am Liam Butler, and I wrote this novel. If that sounds like an AA admission, that's because it sure feels like one. It is traditional for a writer to hate his own work, it is almost a rite of passage to destroy one's own work in a drunken rage for the first time. Perhaps it's the public availab...

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Alisha Banks: You have me hooked! I immediately upon finishing the first book had to start the second. It is a captivating story and I can't wait to finish the other two book! I will definitely be recommending this book to others to read!

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
