Deepest apologies for the repost, but I discovered I was completely remiss in the one thing that inspired this post in the first place! Book snippets! So enjoy this freshly done page. Again, I offer my sincerest apologies.
Letter Challenge Day Twenty-One – One I Judged By Their First Impression
Walls have ears.
Doors have eyes.
Trees have voices.
Beasts tell lies.
Beware the rain.
Beware the snow.
Beware the man
You think you know.
Songs of Sapphique
I knew from the moment I laid eyes on you that you’d be good to me. I’m not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but in some cases I feel justified in doing so.
You were amazing. Those two weeks we shared was like something from another world. I remember repeating your name over and over because of the way it tickled my articulation. Sometimes I see an image of you and I’ll say that name to myself in a whisper to repeat the same feelings that come over me from stroking the cover of a beloved novel.
You looked quite fine on the outside, and I had to try you out. Ooo, you were exciting! Had me wrapped up from the start and kept me thrilled through the end!
Finn had never asked any questions. He’d always been too absorbed in his own agonizing loss, […] in the memory flashes and the fits.
He should have asked.
He should have cared.
Also, I appreciate your pace. You didn’t rush me into a tempestuous billow of complicated changes or drag your feet so I was toiling behind half-sleepy, and still you maintained a delicate mystique. Just as I thought I’d figured you out, you surprised me again with a pleasant new twist. I asked many questions of “Is it…?” and “Could it be…?” and was still excited to have them answered.
Your theme is a deeply rooted truth that I greatly admire the acceptance of. Man is depraved. Whatever else I gleaned from you, I was glad to have this truth acknowledged in such a spell-binding way.
“…or is it that man contains within himself the seeds of evil? That even if he is placed in a paradise perfectly formed for him he will poison it slowly, with his own jealousies and desires? I fear it may be that we blame the Prison for our own corruption. And I do not except myself, for I too am one who has killed and looked only to my own gain.”
My first impression of you was, “That’s going to be a good one.” And you were. Thank you, Incarceron. *whispers* Incarcccceroooon.
The Avid Reader,
As a side note, I would just like to compare these two videos.
It has come to my attention through some accidental web clickings that they’re making a movie. Must everything be made into a movie!? Worst of all, Taylor Lautner that abysmal too-tan teen actor is said to be already chosen for the lead. I have ONE thing to say about all this and that’s at 9:10 of this video…
