He approached the debris that radiated so brightly under the sun. The burnt, twisted metal stuck out from the hard cracked clay in a way that showed they had been there for several days. Possibly more than a week.
The figure jumped into the crater and kicked one of the jutting metal pieces. It easily bent from the blow with a loud, creaky yawn. He was not interested in broken rubble.
Black eyes scanned the area until he found what he was looking for. He could See it had been wedged into one of the crater walls. The huge, wooden trunk had survived the blast thanks to the seal that had been placed around it.
He kicked the wall of dirt, each blow loosening the clay like the explosion of a small bomb, until the trunk came into view. When he reached for it, a white shield pushed his touch away. He smiled. Reaching for it again, he gripped the shield in his palm. Fingers dug through it and it shattered like glass.
He opened the crate and was greeted by several old books. He nodded. This was going to greatly help. He closed the lid and hoisted the trunk to rest on his left shoulder, curling his arm around it as a fastening.
When he emerged from the crater, a mesquite tree greeted him. The stranger walked up to it and paused. The dirt under the tree was disturbed: a makeshift grave. His eyes wavered with an unreadable emotion. He reached up to the tree and broke off a small, bare branch.
"All I have to offer as gratitude," the lone figure said as he placed it on top of the mound before walking away.
End of Book I
(Lengthy :P) Author's Note: Sooooo...I don't know what to say. o.o
Well, I do want to say THANK YOU! Duh! You guys are awesome. Thanks so much for reading my story. Thanks for commenting. Thanks for whatever you did. You rock! xD
THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
Woo! CAPS = Awesome. At least here it does.
Seriously, I am super grateful to all of you. Even if you were just a silent reader, hiding in the shadows, I am happy that you read my story and enjoyed it. ^^
I hope as you went along the story I didn't seem distant or mean. ^^; Feel free to message me or talk to me to ask about the books…or anything else. Haha. If you're confused or don't understand something about Book I, feel free to ask and I'll answer it as long as it's not spoilers you're asking about. :P This could also help me in my revisions in determining if something wasn't explained right.
There is one thing I would like to ask of you, and this will for sure help me in my revisions. Can you guys tell me a little bit about your favorite/least favorite things about the story? Like who is your favorite character and why? Your favorite scene? Least favorite? Why? Things like that? Even if you did not comment throughout the entire story, this is the only time I'm asking you to please do so. Obviously it's up to you if you do or do not. It's just something that will help me shape the trilogy as a whole. Please? :D
There is one more thing you should know about Book I. The title Inner Demon and the names "Mundus" and "Dante" were place holders. In other words, I just threw those names in until I thought of something better. They were meant to be changed. However, I don't think I'm going to change Mundus' name. Dante's I probably have to. You see, there is this awesome game called Devil May Cry and the main character's name is Dante and the main villain's name is Mundus. ^^; Yeah, my unimaginative brain plucked those names, and if I wish to have this published at some point, I feel like I have to change one of the names.
I was thinking of Dante's name changing to Darien or Darin/Daren or Damien. I still want it to start with a "D" and kinda keep the same vibe. I know readers become attached to names and stuff, but I wouldn't want to risk violating some copyright rule with Capcom and Devil May Cry…as minimal as it may be. Sorry about that. :/
I also think Inner Demon is a lame and cliché title. -.- I have another title in mind that sounds better, I think, and will follow the pattern of titles I have for the Trilogy. I want to change the title to Glimpse of a Demon. Eh?
Well feel free to message me about the story or on whatever else. Also, please leave your comments on your favorite/least favorite stuff about the book. It will really help me in revising Book I and shaping Book II. ^^
Thanks once again! You guys are the best! :D
