Living Through The Days

Some people have different ways of dealing with an apocalypse. Some like to waste energy denting a dead corpses head. Some like to drink their sorrows away and others, well they continue to live on for what they lost and to see a new day. My, well I like to write my way through hell. Hope my ride is interesting.

Intro

Heart pounding and blood pumping you enter the house with your (woc) ready. Scanning, your eyes search for any visible threats, yet when seeing nothing but dust covered furniture and surfaces do you lightly walk further in and close the door behind you. For a moment you strain you’re hearing in case of anything but when nothing but the normal eerie silence comes back to you do you relax your tense muscles. Moving forward you search the rest of the house for any signs of danger.

The house was one of the two story homes where the living room, pantry, dining room, kitchen and a small bathroom were located on the bottom and the bedrooms and second bathroom were located on the second floor. In the kitchen you took notice of the dishes in the sink and some opened cans on the counter. In the cuberts, you couldn’t help but smile when gathering the stale crackers and some canned goods that went right into your bag. An even bigger smile coming to you when you dared go into the refrigerator and grabbed yourself some bottled water. When you head to the first bedroom, you grabbed an unused toothbrush (at least it seemed to be unused) along with a roll of toilet paper. Knowing that there would be nothing in the living and pantry room, you make your way upstairs before pausing by a window and taking a peak outside. When seeing nothing you continue upstairs and head straight for the master bedroom. Placing your bag besides the doorway, you first head into the bathroom and gran the toothpaste before coming back out and heading toward the dressers and the closet. Quickly sorting through the clothes, you grab a new set and change into it. Despite the pants being too big for your frame, it’s easily fixed with a belt. Throwing your old used clothes to the side, you grab an extra pair and place it in your bag before going toward the window and looking at your wrist. Seeing the time, you decide that here would be good as any to set up camp before grasping hold of the mattress, dragging it to the door before leaning it against it. Any defense is a good defense against things that could go bump in the night.

Turning back toward the frame of the bed, you pause when your eyes caught sight of a book. Walking over to it, you pick it up and examine it. The cover was rather blank and the writing that was on it was rather faded and hard to make out. Turning it over toward the back, you raise a brow upon seeing a fat cat sitting on a tree or what seemed to be a tree branch sticking it’s tongue out at a fireman that was down below. Flipping it over again, you go toward the wall and take a seat before opening the cover.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

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...

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!

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...

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...

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.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob.

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.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...
