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.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

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.

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves.

PokemænStivo: I have just finished reading this novel and I love it!First, the plot was very well designed. It tells the story of a person nearly kill herself. But then someone appears in her life.

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...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

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...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment.

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...

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)
