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.

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

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...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.
