The First Chapter of my Book


It was a few nights ago in the month of February, under the dark, cloudy and cold atmosphere when it all started. I set off to work, walking down the quiet street which has been my duty most of the time. It was fairly late, and there was a little light from the streetlights overhead. I worked as an overnight maintenance guy for Cracker Barrel so I was not in a hurry for work. And as I walked along, lost in thought, suddenly, I heard a low pitch sound coming from the wood which sounded almost like a hum of electricity. The continuous vibrancy of the sound captivated my attention towards it. I looked and I saw a glow of shining lights in the darkness, dim and changing colors like a chameleon. So, I finally decided to check it out.

Just as I was approaching the creepy woods, I looked straight towards the direction of lights, which later turn out to be blue and green. Getting closer, I saw the lights were being produced by something which I cannot specifically describe. It was definitely strange. I had to brush the leaves for me to see clearly, and I saw lights coming from something that looked like a ball of water but was not contained in any container. It was beckoning and drawing me closer to touch. And so I touched.

Just as the ball exploded, I was suddenly covered with faintly warm glowing water. I was star dulled enough to make me fall back staggered and hit the ground. I immediately felt a sharp pain in my hand and as I raised my hand I noticed a sharp stick was sticking out of my hand, without hesitation, I quickly pull it out while I was getting back on my feet. I was thinking to myself oh crap what am I going to do now, And then I felt a warm tingling all over me for a few seconds, which was later gone within a twinkle of an eye and so also was the sharp pain in my hand. I looked down where the stick was in my hand and there were no wound, not even a scratch. I decided that was enough freakishness for one night, and walked out of the woods all the way to work.

The thought of the incident pervaded my mind. And I began to ask myself the following rhetorical questions. Did I really saw the glowing ball? Did it really spay on me? For so long I thought of getting over it and just go on. I got to work as usual like every other night. After everyone had left, I started to clean the place up like I always do.

At one point of the night, I was pulling out a full trash bag out of its can and the bottom was about to rip opened, just out of reflex I grabbed the bottom of the bag with my left hand. Unfortunately, I didn’t see the broken pieces of glass, but I felt it. I jerk my hand away but before I knew what was happening, the glass had already sliced my hand. So I dropped the bag, and I looked at my hand, it looked deep and very bloody my heart was racing.

I was getting a little scared about the cut, so I went to the sink to wash the wound with some hand soap. As I was washing my hand I felt a warm tingle all over me for a few seconds then it was gone. I got some paper towels to dry my hands, but to my surprise, when I looked at the cut on my hand again, I was so amazed and relieved to discover that there was no cut or pain there anymore.

Vanished I guessed, I could not believe my eyes at first because I knew there was a deep cut there a few seconds ago. What has happened to me? The glowing liquid ball of mist must have done something to me. It seems like I can be healed in a few seconds, now how cool was that I thought to myself. But I don’t want to try and hurt myself just to see if I can heal in a few seconds. So I decided to just finish my work and think about other things.

Steadily as the night went by fast like a moving trail, the next shift came in around 5a.m to start their work. So it was time for me to head out to finish up outside. I clocked out to go home. Around 5:40a.m, I got done and headed home.

On the way home, I stopped by a small store which looks like a meaning supermarket to get some drinks to take home with me, as I entered the store and walked to the back of the store where the drinks were, I heard some guys rushed in and started yelling at the cashier. Give us all the money!

I ducked down and looked around the corner and saw two guys wearing masks. I was a little scared at first, As I looked around I saw a large can of soup on one of the shelves, so I grabbed it to throw at one of the guys. The guys were yelling at the cashier to hurry up or he would be shot. I raised up in anger and yelled at the guys, as they turned toward me, one of the guys shot towards me just as I threw the metal soup can towards him with the bullet been shot at me.

As I was being knocked back from the bullet hitting me I felt a burning in my shoulder and saw the soup can hitting the guys with the gun right in his head. We both fell down to the ground; his buddy grabbed his friend and dragged off out the door cowardly. As I was getting back to my feet, I felt the warm tingle ran through me again. I quickly looked at my shoulder where I was hit; there was a hole in my shirt with a little blood around it. But no wound was found and I didn’t felt the pain from the bullet anymore.

Grabbing my jacket around my waist I put it on to cover the blood on my shirt, Just then I heard yelling outside, the voices said, “drop your weapons and get down on the ground’’. About a minute, one of the cops came into checked things out, by that time; I was at the front of the store buying my drinks.

The officer asked us a few questions to see if we were OK. A little bit later, I was able to go home. About 20 minutes later I was home. It has been a strange night for me so far. But it’s something I had to keep to myself for now. I will keep up with the strange or different thing that might happen to me for now on or at least for a while. A little bit after I got home I did a few things before I took a shower, when I took off my glasses for my shower I notice my sight didn’t get blurred.

It was like I still had my glasses on, but even better. Got done with my shower and got out to dry myself off, and I notice that the scares that were on me before weren’t there anymore. I looked at my forehead and my hand that had scares but there was none.

Whatever happened to me it must have healed as well. I concluded. I thought to myself nothing I can do about this now so time to get some sleep. I woke up with no pain in my back and neck, like I do most of the time. Whatever is happening to me I would like to keep it a secret at least for now from my family. After all, I don’t think they would believe me if I told them without a proof.

I was thinking about doing some tests on what I can do, but I will just wait for now to see what happens later. It was just a normal day and it went by fast like most days.

I hope you enjoy the little bit I put down here , If you like to know more just go to my amazon site

Beta Readers, It’s About the Book – Not You

I would like some beta reader for my scifi book as well

A Writer's Path


by Ashleigh Giannoccaro

For me over the last five (now six) books my beta team has proved to be one the most valuable resources. Sometimes we need that unbiased opinion to separate us from our ‘book babies’ so we can see the faults. These are often the first eyes on your work and they give their time and effort to help you make it better. I want my beta team to rip it to shreds so I can sew it all back together better in the end. It’s not about me, it is about putting out the best book possible.
