TAME OR KILL

On a summer night, in the north Atlantic ocean, a nuke is launched from a Navy ship and lands in the Bermuda Triangle, detonating upon impact. The blast radius is contained within the range of the triangle, plenty of sea life dies, small and big fish. The explosion part clouds and illuminates the dark sky. A rookie soldier on the ship's deck with the name, "Gomez", stares at the explosion, hundreds of miles away, in shock.

A superior officer with the name, "Wells", sees Gomez shaking, barely able to hold onto his binoculars. Wells stands right behind Gomez, a middle aged man trying to startle a rookie. 

Wells says as loud as can be, "First time seeing a nuke go off?!

Gomez jumps in panic, Wells laugh as the rookie turns to Wells, trying to catch his breath. 

 "Sorry, kid. I was trying to get your attention." Wells says, trying to comfort Gomez. 

Gomez calms down, he puts his binoculars down, ashamed of something, Wells can see it in his eyes. 

"You're going to answer my question, rookie?" Wells says like an order. 

"What?" the confused Gomez replies with. 

"The triangle? The nuke? You don't seem well." Wells says, concerned.

Gomez says, rather bluntly, "It was the President's orders to send a nuke into the Triangle. I'm not feeling well, knowing I voted for him."

"Boy, you don't know what was in there! No humans are dead, everything is fine. Are you feeling sad for the ocean?!" Wells says, like a strict man.

Gomez shouts, "There was a chance to make peace and the President refused to!"

"What are you talking about?" Wells says, with some fear in his throat, suspecting what Gomez knows.

"I know what's in the triangle, what brings down the planes. You know what emits the electromagnetic field, don't you, sir?" Gomez whispers, not wanting to alarm anybody else on the ship.

 In a cautions tone, Wells replies, "I do know. Due to my rank, I've learned such information. But how did you learn?"

Gomez says with despair, "My cousins are scientists. They warned me of what this ship might conflict with. But they also told me that there was an option to train, to calm what was in that triangle. It might have been a beast but it could have been a friend."

"Gomez, you know that monster brought down hundreds of planes and ships for decades." Wells says with grief in his tone.     

And before either of them can say anything, they both go quiet as they hear a roar coming from the depths of the sea. They see a massive tidal wave approaching them, the entire ship is powerless to move as an electromagnetic pulse has been emitted. Gomez tries to zoom in at the wave with his binoculars with the infrared, he sees the signature of the creature causing the powerful force of the wave.

"What did you see?! We killed the Bermuda Beast! Nothing should be left!" Wells shouts.

Still holding onto his binoculars, Gomez replies "My cousins said there would be children with the same power of electricity that could be unstoppable. "

The wave is getting close, a monstrous fin emerges at the top of the wave. Wells grab Gomez with one hand and grabs the railing with the other, hoping to survive this. The wave causes the entire ship to submerge underneath as the monster roars.

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Aloehas: When I first started this book, I could not put it down. The author gets you attached to these characters and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story, and it's just amazing. I'm looking forward to what else she can do.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
