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.

Deleted User: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Ariel: First book from the Author I've read, and am extremely impressed and very much satisfied that this story was a short-story, yet, filled with great writing, fantastic characters, and all I'd like is more, please. Malice, she is my favorite!!

Radecki: This is one of the freshest stories I've read in a while. Author (Thetawave) has accomplished that rare feat of creating something original. If I had to label his writing style I would call it "baroque LSD".

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl.

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.

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

Tina Hacker: Lindsey Martin=Bowen blends humor with satiric takes on modern life. Her characters are introduced seamlessly and tell the reader their stories--if we can read them between laughs! I hesitate to write exactly what she parodies but anyone reading her book will know in a minute. Just think large-...
