Adventure / Mystery

Prologue

They had been spotted.

Fuyumi grabbed the Feng's arm. Shuttering her mind against the onslaught of his thoughts, she swung him onto her back, sprinting madly towards the fence. It quickly loomed up in front of her, but she leaped high onto an electrical box and jumped again to push off the wall of the nearby warehouse, successfully flying over the chain-linked barrier despite the extra weight of her small passenger.

However, her landing was derailed at the boy's cry of alarm at her sudden action and his panic coursed through her own mind unchecked, clouding her perception and throwing off her momentum. His grip tightened around her neck and she twisted her head reflexively, trying to breathe. She landed awkwardly and off-balance on her left foot and slipped on the loose gravel. Falling forward onto all fours, she grunted against a painful jolt that shot up through her knees and felt her wrists bruise from the impact.

"...don't want to fall... please don't drop... want to go home, please!"

Her mental functions stalled and her vision swam under the onslaught of Feng's emotions. Taking a deep breath, Fuyumi spent several seconds trying to disassociate herself from the young boy's frightened thoughts invading her mind and scrambling back up, ignoring her aching joints. She righted the boy's position on her back with one arm and resumed sprinting, pulling at the thin limbs around her neck with her other arm to breath. From her peripheral vision she glimpsed three more men chasing after them and ducked into a back alley. Fuyumi just hoped they would make it back to the main streets where it'd be easier to lose the men.

Angry shouting in Cantonese called out from right behind them, but whatever was being said was drowned out from Fuyumi's ears by the Feng's panicked inner monologue.

"I don't want to die! Big Brother... save me!"

Fuyumi suddenly flinched violently to the right as a muted shot came from behind her and a bullet cracked against the side of one the buildings.

Feng screamed.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

Pille: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
