Rain

tap.



The rain falls.

tap.

And falls.

tap. tap. tap.

It is an incessant sound, unrelenting.

tap. tap. tap. tap. tap.

My curtains are drawn tightly, and the room is shrouded with black shadows, despite the approaching morning. Even after being awake for hours, my eyes have yet to adjust. I throw off my covers, and stand, squinting into the room. Maybe I will make some tea for myself....

In fact, the sun was beginning to rise. The sound of rain hitting the skylight is sharp and unyielding. I sigh, all pretenses of sleep floating away with it. The raining, the harsh tapping, has been going for hours.

tap. tap. tap tap tap.

I go into the kitchen, when I suddenly feel a sense of unease. The sun. It is rising.

tap. tap. tap. tap. tap.

I head back to the bedroom and open the window. The sky is blue behind my dark curtains....

tap tap tap tap tap tap.

I walk slowly towards the skylight.

tap. tap. tap. tap tap.

The skylight throws an odd looking shadow onto my carpet.

taptaptaptap.

Slowly.

tap.

It isn't raining.

tap. tap. tap. tap.tap.

Rain doesn't fall in groups of five.

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me.

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Nishant Jain: Plus points-* the story is quite interesting* well detailed(u can easily imagine andpicture what the narrator is trying to say)* huge twist in the endImprovements-- i feel the story unfolds a bit slowlyIt is definitely worth a shot. I have no regrets reading BREAKING POINT.

Jim E. Johnson: Rarely do I find a mystery that peeks my interest, but Jack Huber's Pat Ruger reminds me of Parker's Spenser or Spillane's Hammer! Strong character with the right connections and plot drivers to keep anyone engaged and never putting it down.The encounters of the characters Ruger engages, continue...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!
