Who Am I?

What have I done?

Where am I?

Around me are only white walls. There are no windows, no paintings, no colours. I have a single bed with a grey bed frame that has some bars at both ends. The room is small; about the size of a hotel room but only with a bed and a chair.

Everything is white, just simple and white.

Next to my bed is a door that is locked. I never saw it opening before. On the right side, there is another door that takes me into an, also white and simple, bathroom that fits a sink, shower, and toilette.

I don't know for how long I've been here but I slept for about 10 times. Every time I woke up, there was a tablet with food on the chair. It is delicious with a variety of fruits, vegetables, and meat. I'm not starving, but I also don't know from where and from whom this food comes from.

Since the first time I woke up in this bed, I am asking myself the same questions.

What have I done?

Where am I?

Who is keeping me here, and why?

What is behind this door?

The only object I have is a small piece of a mirror, about the size of a hand that I found under the bed. I'm hiding the piece under my mattress because I don't know why I have it and if they will take it from me. the other day I recognized a tiny hole in the wall where I assume a mirror was hanging on a nail.

What has happened in this room before?

Sometimes, I stare for hours into the mirror and yesterday I thought I saw someone else for a second. I might get insane and should stop staring at it all the time. I hope by staring at myself I will find answers in my light blue eyes, which go along with my shoulder length, blond, straight hair.

There was it again!

This time I'm 100% sure my eyes changed to green colour. What does that mean? What is happening to me?


Days gone by without anything special. I eat the food I get after waking up, I think about all the questions in my head and go to sleep. I spent, even more, time staring at myself now and hope it will show me more. But nothing has happened since days beside that weird dream I had for two nights so far. It is blurry and unclear and I don't understand it. I saw those green eyes in my dream, but no face, nothing else. Who do those eyes belong to? Why did I see them in the piece of the mirror, and now, also in my dreams?


Another couple days passed by and I'm already convinced those eyes are a hallucination of my locked mind. I'm probably already insane. I have nothing here beside this mirror and all I see is myself. What was that? Something changed for the fraction of a second. Then it was gone. What was it? I couldn't see it that quickly. There was it again. And again. My hair was black and my eyes were green. While I was holding the mirror with my left hand, I used the right one to grab some of my hair and pulled it in front of my head where I could see it. It was blond.

"Hi Jane!", my black-haired I said and I dropped the mirror shocked and scared. What was that? Did that just happened or am I completely insane now?

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book. Your writing style reminded me of a fan fiction writer, always adding in tiny details and making things like "Oh, my name is [name that no one would ever name a child] and here is my life story. Oh, d...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read.Great job!

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

Ilanea Zavala: I loved it and well I really hope you continue writing more to the story.

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me.

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Jodee3596: I really did like this story. Lacey Amanda Jones is very well written. It's a story about a girl who didn't like who she was but wasn't really sure how to change that and still get what she wants. Then there's Finn. What or who is he? Her gay BFF, some stalker guy who takes pictures of her or the...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.
