I was sinking deeper into the darkness, the water turned from transparent to the darkest shades of blue-inky blue.
It turned into black as I kept drowning. My voice converted into mute bubbles, as I whispered the last words.
Somewhere, far far away, I heard the faint voice of my mother calling for help.
“Lily! Somebody help.”
I dropped my pink shoe in the river and as I tried to pick it up, I drifted away with the current.
It was not an ordinary shoe, but the last present I received from my father on my 10th birthday three months ago, just two days before his death.
I had seen a lot for my age, more than the other kids at my school. I have lost three loved ones in a row, my twin brothers before my dad.
Mother told me that all of them went to heavens and became angels.
May be, I was ready to be one too.
I gave up on my hope to survive now, and closed my eyes accepting my defeat, feeling the last breathe leaving from my lungs escaping through my trembling lips.
I heard music- a tune of a flute. I could feel my soul floating out of my body, following the note, as the music grew louder and louder.
It wasn’t the first time; I had heard it before too.
I had heard this tune many times, strangely right before the death of a family member.
My fate was confirmed now- Death.
But suddenly, the music stopped and a queer silence took control of the situation.
I felt someone’s hands around me, pulling me up to the surface of water.
I felt light as a feather, waiting for the water to lift me up.
Anything could be forgotten, but not that tune that always played as a warning sign of death.
The biggest reality that no one can deny.
Whether you die rich, or die poor. Whether you die young, or die old.
The blind ended street of life always end on death.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...
Books17: This is my first book review.I found the story to be very intriguing.The beginning of the story starts and you are immediately thrown into wanting to know what will happen next, The action, or intrigue is established early, so there isn't the feeling of the story dragging on, or thinking about wh...
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.
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.
ryder: This is an excellent read. From beginning to end the author showed his creative and imaginative writing skills. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and sorrow: This book has it all. I strongly recommend this book, and I am already recommending it to my friends.
farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing.

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...
