Chapter 1: The first time

Tip... tap... that is the only sound I've been able to hear for twelve years from tomorrow on-wards. All my life I  have never heard  anything else except from the loneliness of the tip tap, echoing through me like a stone dropped down a crevice. My life is burden  that I struggle to carry but I've never lost hope, that's funny really, that was the name my mother gave me before she died, now I'm just called Jane, plain Jane.

I don't remember much of my mother but what I do remember is a beautiful woman who was always optimistic even after she was diagnosed with cancer. Sometime I try to imagine what she looked like, I was only young when she past away and the hospital tries to keep us happy but they can't fool everyone so it's something I do to pass the time.

I've always despised the hospital. People always feel sorry for me; even if all I can hear is the tip tap I can see pity in their eyes making me wonder, why was I ever brought into the world if the only thing I'm good at is, well...Waste others time. 

Every day I wait for my glimpse of hope even though it was never gonna catch me before the end, that was what I thought anyway, but today was the day my life was gonna change forever, today was the day I felt that glimpse of hope coming ever closer, the day when not everything was lost...

my hand brushes against the mahogany wood, relieving me from the burden that has been clinging onto my shoulders for twelve years.

I sit down and press the first note, then one after another they flow out into a beautiful melody. By some miracle I can hear the music so I carry on; it all came naturally to me and held a strong place in my heart so why should I stop? The nurses and doctors gawp in amazement as I broke into a melodious song. For the first time in my life I felt free, nobody could pull me down, i was like a bird learning to fly, a baby taking it's first step.

After what seemed like hours of playing, I stop the music and smile at the doctors who where amazed just at the sight of joy across my face, let alone the fact I could play such an exquisite melody.I stand up and start walking to the exit, nobody could stop me now.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story. I'm usually not a fan of the cliff hanger endings (be it a series or not), but this one made me download the Kindle app just so I c...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

emmaneal74: I loved this booked. Would definitely buy it when published and read it again. The story flowed in such a way I just couldn't put it down. I was never confused about the characters or their roles in the story which can happen sometimes with so many lead. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to r...

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.
