Her

It was a bright sunny day, the trees were green and the willows leant over the river as it flowed past. He sat cross-legged on the grass by the path, he was wearing a blue shirt and brown trousers, his hair was brown and straight as always. He was drawing something, using his finger to smudge it, his head moved in time with what he was doing then he looked up and became aware that she was looking at him. She stood just in-front of him, dressed in a thin shiny white dress that had 3 layers of tassels going to her knees from the waist and long white gloves. She had long brown hair with bare-feet and long dainty limbs.

HeyAdam put down his pad and stood up a little startled to meet her did you want something?he slowed down and looked at her eyes. They were a striking green with an element of sadness to them, Are you ok?Adam lowered his voice taking a step closer to her. Her eyes became afraid and he reached out It's alright” she started to back away with her hands behind her back but Adam put his hands on her upper arms and gently got her to stop Hey. I'm not going to hurt you. Her breathing was heavy for a moment before it calmed and then she looked him directly in his eyes. The look lasted only a moment when Adam heard a sound behind him like a gust of wind he flickered his gaze backwards and her eyes followed his look.

For a moment there stood a Hare coated in white and standing on it's hind legs looking curiously at Adam, but then it shrunk and became a black ball of swirling mist. He watched the mist in amazement and bewilderment as it lifted it's black wings and took off into the air. It moved swiftly round Adam, he turned to follow it watching it's black head searching the area, then it vanished into the darkness.

Everything around Adam became pitch black, apart from a piece of white ribbon that danced in the space before him. He stood watching it move freely like a ballet dancer, going this way and that. Then it drew back and shot upwards. Keeping his eye on it Adam watched as it jolted and shook about him, as he watched it it's movements became faster and more violent, then ribbon started to darken and twist. A deep red liquid ran down it's white body Who are you? he cried out.

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.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

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...
