The girl with the daisy in her hand

She sits alone by the stream in the fields of golden flowers, daisies blowing in the wind, those things in which no one knew, those things which no one would quite understand, those things in which both fall apart those things in her world they do exist, the brooks run, and the sun beams across her face as her hair flows as if the sun beats through her soul, her mind races across the skies, as she stands holding her flower, her one flower to give to her soul, to give to her friend, her flower, the daisy in her hand, the sun crashes across the field, and there where streams of grass gathers like a musical dance across the fields of flowers, but the smile upon her face was always bright and innocent, she waited for her friend, the little boy in the field, her love from her childhood, her love from her heart, why do you wait for me, he asked, because I love you, she said, but why, because I just do you’re my friend, she waited for him to take her flower, as he said you need to go home, she said I don’t have a home, do you she asked, he said well no not really, then she went down to the stream of the cold brook to sit by the water, as she put her feet in the streams, she felt the cold water upon her feet, but the sun was as if it was a thousand miles across the skies and there it beamed within her soul, but the warmth covered her body, and the brook ran cold, she looked back to see if her friend was there, he was she smiled, why don’t you leave he said I am not playing with you.

I cant she said, why not, he said, because you’re my friend, and I have waited on you all my life, we have always been friends, I knew you before you where here, and you are my soul mate, because I knew your soul.

Please play with me she said, no I don’t want to, but why she asked, I just don’t. He walked away from her leaving her with her flower in her hand. And the fields and meadows knew their innocence as the grass that sung as it blew the wind, and the girl with the curly locks of hair stayed there always waiting on her best friend,

Because of her love for him, he would never known, he would run away and smile, but she waited, and one day, he came looking for her the girl with the smile, with the golden locks of hair , and the daisies where all there, but the flower that she had left him was still in his hand, he knew of his love, he knew of friend, because she said you will always be with me in my soul, because in this field of daisies we never did grow old, we where always young, and we where never old, but I am the girl that you gave your soul to, and the flower you hold is me, because everywhere in this world in the field of grass that you see, in a thousand lands, the daisies that grow where always me, because no matter where you are or where you had been, you where with me, and I was always in your Hand.

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...

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.

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change. This story was very sad and eye opening. It could teach some people a very worthy lesson. It was a great combination of romance, mystery, and a...

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 ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.

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...

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. :)

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story.
