Through Glass

Stay in the Light and listen for the Click

ThroughGlass iBooks

Everyone remembered the day the sky went black. The day the sun was wiped from the sky. They remember the wind as it brought in the darkness; the way the earth shook and everything changed.

Everyone remembered the screams as the darkness ate those who were out in the open, those who had surrounded themselves by light, and those who made noise.

Everyone remembered the voice from the sky and the way food disappeared.

At least, that’s what I hoped. I hoped that there was an ‘everyone’ that would remember because I am not sure how many are left, how many survived. Or if anyone did.
I hoped that I wasn’t alone.
I remembered that day.
I remembered because it was the day I became alone.
It was the day that everything was perfect until the monsters took it away. Then the house went silent and the birds stopped singing. It was the day when everyone disappeared, everyone except the boy, the only person I have seen in two years.

The boy I talk to through the glass.

The Blue

The world I was raised in had been sun and flowers, it had been breezes through open windows and smiles from the boy next door. It had been crushes, it had been stolen kisses.
And then it wasn’t.
Then it was darkness, then it was screams.
Then it became a world in which fighting was required, and life was an unknown luxury.
It became survival.

That’s what I do.

I fight.
I survive.
I run.
I run from the Tar, I run from those I had hoped would be my allies.
All through the dark. The poisonous dark as I seek the life that has been taken from me, praying I will find it.
Praying that it won’t devour me before its too late.

    Hello Rebecca!
    I hope you’re doing fine.
    I was wondering if you are going to publish this series in other countries (say, Brazil, maybe? 😀 ). Because I’ve found the premise really interesting, and I would like to have it in my language.
