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.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Keith R. Pharis Jr.: Thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I was drawn in and stayed intrigued throughout the entire story. It was full of drama and emotion. Very well written. It left me wanting more. I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone. It will certainly leave you wanting more and more. Excellent job.

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

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...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
