poor house souls

By Rebecca Edwards All Rights Reserved ©



A home for the unwanted, where they were treated like slaves. This was the home of the poorest of the poor, where those who have no where to go, go. Some are criminals, others are just those down on their luck and fell into hand times.

They all work from dawn to dust with out a break, made to do back breaking jobs, given little food and even less money, this was the life of the poor house residents of the Victorian er, a time of great leaps and pounds in technology but terrible time for those who where left behind in the path of progress.

The men and women working until they drop, breaking stones and making items to be sold. The children doing dangerous jobs where they could get seriously hurt or even killed trying to do what they are told.

Many people know about what goes on in those terrible places but none try to even help the poor people who have no choose but to go to those dark rat invested places. The rich laugh at the misfortune of those below them and do not give them a second glance.

All those who enter hope to one day leave and never look back, to be able to stand on their own two feet and make something of them selves but they all know that they will never be free, the owners will never let them go, for they signed they selves over to them when they entered.

Will the pain of captivity ever go a way, will the poor souls of those trapped ever be freed. No one knows, but they continue to hope and dream that one theirs lives will change and the freedom that they long for will one day be in fact a reality.

Alex Reltin: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story. There isn't much more I can say about this other than amazing! Are there going to be anymore updates any time soon?I also Vote...

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well. I read it all in one sitting, and your strong style doesn't falter one bit throughout. I think I liked this even better than some of the "big" authors' works, ...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

precious_passenger: I've read this story on and I'm so happy to see this here. It's one of my favorite stories about Supernatural fandom. Little Dean is adorable in here :) Also, I voted for your story. Us Supernatural fans have to look out for each other, right? :D

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.
