The Unknown

Hello, it's nice to meet you, but I can assure you it won't be nice to meet me.

Why? Well I thought it would obvious, don't you know who I am?

Well of course you don't, with a solid foundation, no one can detect me.

Some people don't even know I exist, I defy almost all of the five senses;

No one can hear me,

No one can smell me,

No one can touch me,

No one can see me,

But I can promise you everyone can feel me.

I am that feeling that you get when you walk into that cursed exam hall on the first day of your GCSE's.

I am that feeling that you get when you hear your mother asking for her prized possession that you accidently broke, despite her warning.

I'm that emotion that skillfully courses through your veins, burning every stream of sanity within you.

I am that...

Chest clenching, breath restricting

Voice stuttering, Body trembling

Confidence shattering, joy killing

Feeling.

I hurt people, I kill people, I ruin people.

I cause darkness, restrict light.

And as a result I'm hated. Along with the people that caused me. Are you one of them?

Oh yes, that's right, you don't know who I am yet. Well, here's another clue...

I'm known for breaking hearts.

Have you guessed who I am yet?

No I'm not Fear, but we coexist.

No I'm not nervousness, he never sticks around.

No I'm not depression, she's too dark. But I can morph into her.

So who am I? I'll give you one last guess.

...

I am Anxiety

An emotion that causes disorders, depression

An ill-fated sensation caused by, bullies, society and trivial expectations.

So yes, my name is Anxiety, it's nice to meet you...So now that you know me,

Don't be the reason that someone is affected by me.

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 ...

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

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.

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!

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

aeonleeann: Love how the story flowed through and how mysterious she was until the end. Loved how she tries to stay away from others but seamed to get drawn into others ether thru friendship, thru bargains or oaths. Would love to read the next book when it comes out. For this story in my eyes has great promi...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

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...

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.
