Next Morrow rising up needing clothes befitting ,retracing the Inprints in the concrete he made looking far a head with piercing eyes ...unknowingly Ordan comes out of the shop as its bin collection day and not noticing who's coming up behind 'he looks up to the sky thinking he heard a common pigeon bird Squarking ', sea of pure red mist encases above Apollyon moves up behind jeff standing there praying on him -noticing some rubbish has fallen out the bin reaching to pick it up a shadow catches the eye slowly throwing rubbish he turns a round rather shaken ,turning fully looking up those red eyes Piercing through him seeing the door still open he runs for the safety of the shop ...Locks and bolts the main and back door,he sighs a relief cut short by laughter Entwind with terror ...enhanced with more laughter more intense ,evil echoing from down-stairs near the back entrance , Laughter becoming more intensified as darkness Incaptulates its surroundings forming a Claustrophobic feeling . That feeling of someone knowing where you are,sensing your every move ...is inescapable . That...feeling... Seaps fear into his eyes drawing moisture from his Scrawny skin Heaving a scent of pure incandescent gas . His senses going frantic,constantly looking everywhere around him ..starting to mutter " w...w...what do you want... who are you ",shouted petrifiedly "said Ordan !""

On the weather it forecasted gushing rain ,Gayle force winds . Dajan " They're always saying that, they never get it right ...STUPID TWATS ! Later on that morning, the delivery turned up to stock the shelves and the driver was instructed to go round the back for offloading the goods .While remaining out back directing where to lay the groceries , ordan still traumatised, potters about lazely and unbewildering from the on-lookers outside in the yard pearing through a small but yet manageble stained glass effect window . Signing off on the deliveries Dajan returns inside not to startle him but with a soft yet hardened voice he natters " This is about that guy""No" says ordanTaking the trash out an echo arises out of the cold evening shuttering a chill of terror as ordan still in shock and scared lowers the trash bin lid down whilst looking behind him . Just a silent whisper is enough to make him scurry back inside latching locks quickly , while behind him dajan pears over him from afar slowly shaking his head - meanwhile counting today's takings ( £1000) adding the sum total to £11,500,69 pence he stacks it in his 1.5 tone vault hidden behind his beloved watercolour .Once done hanging the picture back on the wall he walks over to the till and refills with coins . 1ps ,2ps ,5ps and so forth ready for an early start tomorrow . Getting ready... phone rings - immediately answers it , " Hello " says ordan (Static) thats strange - maybe he'll try again - or i will make the call .Moments later phone rings... "Hello ? " says ordan , " ordan it's me dajan said ,can you meet me at the shop in fifteen minutes? Yes sure says ordan ,"good. I'm headed straight there now says dajan " !.

Discovering what will happen - unleashing its own destructive forces to all humans for eternity, that is inevitable... you cant denie the very fate that will lay upon you .

Unopened , a sharp pin-pointointed jaggered edged knife reveals itself alongside a goblet of solid bronze filled with the encandescent fluid of its deadly flower preserved . A photo exists between fine sheet of cloth undisturbed for centurys , " his sister ", once forgotten through the years once disowned and torn from the world she knew !. Safe keep for him - his anger and rage also He know speakes Native Mother tongue " Προδομένος από τους μέντορες που κάποτε λάτρευε , dishowned από την οικογένειά του πέταξαν έξω από τα χέρια του Allmighty για αναμφισβήτητη evillness του παραμεριστεί σαν ένα παιδί εγκαταλελειμμένο - όλα αυτά οργή ​​, όλη αυτήν την εξουσία , την κακία ολοένα και ισχυρότερη και ισχυρότερη .. κάποτε βασανίζεται από του μέντορες που didnt συνειδητοποιήσουν τι θα γίνει με αυτό το μικρό αγόρι στο centurys να έρθει .Prodoménos apó tous méntores pou kápote látrev̱e , dishowned apó ti̱n oikogéneiá tou pétaxan éxo̱ apó ta chéria tou Allmighty gia anamfisví̱ti̱ti̱ evillness tou parameristeí san éna paidí enkataleleimméno - óla af̱tá orgí̱ ​​, óli̱ af̱tí̱n ti̱n exousía , ti̱n kakía oloéna kai ischyróteri̱ kai ischyróteri̱ .. kápote vasanízetai apó tou méntores pou didnt syneidi̱topoií̱soun ti tha gínei me af̱tó to mikró agóri sto centurys na érthei " .(Betrayed by the mentors he once adored,dishowned by his family thrown out by the hands of the allmighty for his undoubted evillness cast aside like a child abandoned - all that rage , all that power, evilness growing ştronger and stronger .. once tormented by his mentors they didnt realize what would become of that little boy in centurys to come .

A Crow

4.55 am just outside dajans shop ,a short few yards away -police were seen cornering off the area uncovering , any evidence left behind . Inquisitive , he has to be nosy and do his little investigation of his own by weirdly questioning the police who havent got a clue -yet - they've got this old fart trying to do their job .
"Listen sir , leave us to get on with our enquiries" says the seargent " just trying to help " says Dajan " Let me - No im not gonna tell you again sir , LEAVE Seargent is called over by the detective , " on my way " - walking over dajan takes a sneaky

glaring binocular focused look at the scene before leaving." whats happened " says ordan " i dont know ' they wouldnt tell me ,called me an old fart" says dajan " hahahahaha , sorry but thats funny " says ordan Later that day . dajan , throws the trash into the old corregated steel bin as he see's blue flashing lights dimming in the expanse Displaying a phosphorescent synphony in the realm of darkness
" isn't this beautiful" say's dajan , " Yeahhh its not a bad sight at all , " replies ordan !!pottering about ready to close up ordan stands here agasped at the symphony before his eyes not realising dajan has been calling him for the last five minutes to help shut up shop - he finally here's dajan calling after he throws a piece of splintered wood at his back with just a suggestion of a finger pointing directly to the shutters" Ow that hurt " says ordan " Well , it got your attention didn't it " says dajan Come on im not standing here all night Shutters : withered : making a jarring noise so loud it defens the sound of time disabling your senses for a short period . With all the comotion , something is lurking in the shadows fueling his fire . Peering down king street from the top of the road apollyon stands dissapearing in and out of the fog . pure red eyes , burning lavar climbing through the old aged rocks rising the heat of the concrete to an unbearable ferocity - standing there with his arms open, with just a turn of his hands- the earths centre starts shaking , hairline cracks appear pertruding the concrete walls finally breaking through demolishing the road around himself with flowing lavar burning anything in its wake .earths liquid flowing , he walks on the burning lavar heading towards the old victorian building with front facing clock . Between two columns is a redwood framed two door encased with embellished carving of oakleafs in the stain glass windows , door knobs : carved ivory engraved with a single oakleaf .Upon opening both doors , the cold night air seaps in fuelling the walls with life and warmth that was once lost through time - a grand staircase with two wings leading from the centre platform , " Home " Says Apollyon .

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.

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...

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...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie.
