Here is a story I have kept in my head for a while... I have plenty like this, and I would like to know if it is any good. If it is I will post more and continue on stories if not I will try to dissmiss them as useless imagination.
Here it is :
It was a wet, dreary, and rainy night in Beit Ilnan. A 12 year old boy named Jack was excitedly running home from his first day at his newly aqcuired job; however, the torrent of rain dampened his spirits a little, but he still was still excited. Just as he was rounding a corner to enter his neighborhood a man wearing a black hooded robe appeared in front of him. Jack's initial reaction was complete surprise because the man seemed to appear out of thin air. As soon as he recovered from the surprise, a look of fearful recognition was apparent on his face.
The hooded man was completely hidden underneath the hooded robe, and it was the only distinguishable feature the man had. Suddenly the hooded man stretched out his hand and a sword suddenly appeared in it. If Jack was not so afraid he might have noticed that the sword was a beautiful, but mysterious weapon. It was a blue, almost transparent, sword with a dull aura radiating out of it adding to the mystriousness of the figure. As the hooded man held out his sword he began to walk towards Jack. Now Jack had an expression of sheer terror and dread. He started to shift his eyes looking for a way to escape without easily being chased. The hooded man was getting closer as precious seconds ticked while Jack stood there, frozen in fear, trying to think of what to do. As the hooded man was nearly upon him, Jack decided that his only choice would be to sprint past the hooded Man as fast as he can.
Jack ran as fast as he has ever run. Unfortunately the hooded man was much faster. As Jack was running past the figure, it raised the sword and swing it swiftly, but firmly. Jack lamented in what he percieved to be as his last moments; however, A second man appeared who pushed Jack out of the way, and parried the man's sword. Had he been a second late Jack would have been dead.
I am thinking it is a little short, but I don't even know if it was good.
