His Name Was Spirit

January 4, 2004

Spirit looked about his new surroundings absolutely certain that he would never get used to them. He already yearned for a return to the shining clean steel and porcelain surfaces back home. The cool, well circulated air, and semi-silent hum of electronics all about him. Instead, what he now had to work with was red dirt, warm air, and uneven terrain as far as the eye could see. Technically, it was further than the eye could see. This much he knew, or at least reasoned.

At least it was quiet, and from out here he could see the stars. That was something he didn't get much of back home. And at least now nobody would keep on confusing him for a girl. He hated that, but never mentioned it to anybody. What was the point?

The little voice in his ear was screaming at him to start his mission.

He knew he had better get to it, otherwise the voice would never shut up. There was only so much time after all.

Three months.” He thought.

Walter Hamilton: the story line I recognise from stories online, although I have forgotten a lot of the action I enjoyed reading again. The author is very inventive with the plot and it makes a gripping read. I was disappointed when when I ended the last posted chapter as I thought that the story was posted in it...

Sarge: Well I finally feel that I am writing this for an adult. I like it. I wish I had more time to give reading it right now. It has my interest. By the way I have been to some of those new age stores and brought meditation crystals. You're right, they have to call your name or they won't be any ...

mochigotjams: This novel messed with me in more ways than I can imagine, but I’m not complaining. It’s been hard to find stories on sites like Inkitt and others like it that actually get me interested, but I’m glad I found this. The world the author created is immensely vivid and beautiful, not gonna lie it al...

aharris7700: This book was very well written. The plot was original, easy to follow and flowed well from chapter to chapter. Highly recommend!

Elizar: I spent all day reading this when I found it this morning. There were some places where words were spelled wrong but that didn’t affect the story or anything. The plot did not go in the direction I thought it was going to go in but that is not a bad thing. The way the plot was taken was actual...

Queen Hasia: I love this story. Can't wait to start reading the 2nd. You deserve to have this book get published. I would buy it!

Wonderlands666: I loved it hope more is written

Sandicat: I'm not very good at this sort of thing, but I do want everyone to know, that this was a really good read. Once I found the story and started reading, I couldn't stop.

Rebecca Weller: This book is gritty, and not for the faint of heart, as far as what you can expect the heroine Layla is put through, and yet there is a compelling and tender love story wrapped up in the darkness. An easy flowing writing style, I was drawn to keep turning the pages to find out if Layla and Adonis...

Jason Phang: Will be waiting for more to be written! The plot is off to a good start, with more to be unravelled. Will be exciting to see how well they can synchronise with their abilities and how that expands. Good work!

cassmessier16: This was actually really well written. Came off with a totally different perspective. When she told Julian to drink her blood, that was almost freaky. Because if it were me I would be totally spooked and not he like "oh yeah, sip sip". It was good to read something that I personally wouldn't have...

angelaserrone: John Kenneth Martin moved with confidence in his compelling and smooth narrative, clearly presenting the eternal struggle between good and evil, with the sole purpose to rule mankind.Prophetic his portrayal of the world overpopulated, the outbreak of III World War, the earth ruled under one gover...
