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.

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Shayleen Seiberg: See, I wasn't sure if I'd like this story. But it turned out extremely well. It kept me interested the whole entire time. The only thing wrong with it is there are multiple grammatical errors. Not punctuation wise, but spelling wise and word placement wise. But overall, I loved the book.

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Darren Powell: Very nice read. Lots of surprising treats from: Schrodinger’s cat and dervish dance forms; to sensei masters and brownian motion. I wasn't expecting this, so it was a pleasant discovery.Also liked the 'cross-over' events connecting one character's/or group's journey to another. I like how that wa...
