I have had a passion for writing since I was a child, I love fiction, non-fiction, poetry, travel, and health and fitness! I decided to pursue a new career as a published author!
Shivering inside, Bella yells from the passenger side window of the old 1992 GMC Yukon truck, "what's wrong?" How did she allow herself to be talked into moving halfway across the country? And why did she trust that Carlos's old beat up truck could make it? Now the truck has stopped in the middle of nowhere. No gas station or even any houses in sight! Just a long desolate snow covered road, which appears to lead nowhere.
A New Earth!
The day started out like any other! It was 6 a.m., and I was fixing my morning cup of coffee and watching the sunrise over the Detroit River. The forecast for the day predicted 85 degrees, a perfect day for a jog along the Riverfront. Except no weather channel could forecast the sudden destruction that was soon to come and the aftermath that relatively few live to describe.
Xavier nervously looks in the mirror for one final check. Pulling his long black dreads behind his broad shoulders and smoothing out his neatly trimmed facial hair, he was interrupted by the ring of his cell phone. Mario, his childhood friend, was on the other end, He wanted to come and play video games today, but Xavier had other plans! Today he was going to meet Lyric for their first date and he was excited to be taking their relationship to the next level.
As a little girl I always looked up to my big brother a year and a half my senior, he was scrawny but tough! On our walks to and from elementary school, I'd walk behind him trying to keep up and he'd eventually stoop down and lift me on his back and carry me the rest of the way home! He was anxious to get home and watch his favorite Spiderman cartoon once sewing and entire Spiderman costume from old clothes!
