Destiny calls

There is no going back from here, for what I discovered up in that dusty attic on that cold winter afternoon has marked me out.

Now I am one of them.

I should have obeyed my uncle’s directive, but I’d been determined to find out the truth. The secret that was hidden from me, that was buried along with my parents, whose mysterious disappearance has never been discussed.

But now I have the truth, I must face the challenge ahead: the one that all our people must face.

On the lonely road
our kind must travel alone;
destiny calls me.

  1. I applaud the courage of writing your way into (and through) a serial adventure… not the easiest thing to do, at least in the initial chapters, where, in Six Sentences, worlds must be brought into view and people who would live, if only a chapter at a time, clamor to be introduced.

    Excellent beginning.

  2. “Now I am one of them.” Yeah no, getting around the ominous sound of that! Love that you’ve followed up the character in a 2nd Six. It appears we’re all waiting on tenterhooks 🙂 Looking forward to the next installment!
