85

I was only 14 when I saw the lights. I saw them in skies before they took me. I was on a hard bed, cold and naked. I was alone in a quiet room—no sounds but the ones I made myself. The room was cold, a metallic grey. There were no windows, nothing, no lights.

“Hello? Anyone there?” I called out. “Anyone? Please answer?”

I was scared, alone, away from my family. Nothing. I kept waiting; to see who would come for me. I wanted out, but nothing came to mind. I sat, scared. I yelled again… but still there was nothing. I wanted hope, faith, something. But nothing came. Slowly I grew tried and soon was falling sleep.What more could go wrong?

Then I was having these weird dreams; faces of the past, the ones who were there before me. The ones lost. The ones who went missing. There were so many of them...I tried to ask them for help; they were lost like I was. But the others watch. The hint of grey eyes, watching as I laid there in the room.

Another room, full of human; bodies hanging upside down. They smile as their party walk around, watching humans; the way they sleep. They study the life of humans though their dreams states. No one wakes, not during this. It was painless for humans. But for them, they wanted to see their memories.Without leaving their world, they study human life. Some will wake up only to see lights shining in their eyes. Some return to Earth with only memories, that if they shared, no one would believe. How could they? Everyone thought they were crazy.

She was 85, yet she was 14… What happened to her? No memories of her life, no understanding as to why she sat at the bus stop with no understanding. She was 14. She swore it on upon her life.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...

Deleted User: 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.

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
