Being aware of our capability is all we need, it’s necessary to stop and appreciate everything before continuing. Just like Simon when he woke up.

  1. I was trying to be lazy before I go get my kid from his friend’s and got dragged into reading the whole story. Enjoyed it and it was great at getting me hooked into reading the whole story before I realised it.

  2. Hey Sebastian, I noticed that you liked a post on my blog recently (Hovel of Babel). How in the world did you find it, I use it as an archive for stuff that I later might post elsewhere 🙂

  3. I’m awed by how you urge me to create a short film in my mind as I read your phenomenal writing. Thank you kindly for sharing your gift.

  4. The pray becoming the hunter reminds me of Ezekiel 21:25-27. Simon conquering the beast is like man overcoming the devil. In the end, those who have been the prey of the beast will be exalted and those of the beast will be abased.

  5. Hi Sebastian! I’ve noticed you liked my first post, with that I very thank you, man! I saw your and see what you. You know, I was inspired by it! That’s actually exactly the best what I saw here! Following and looking forward for new!👍

  6. Another great instalment. If I may suggest, have you looked at PenPee.com? From what I have read from doing my research for my creative writing, it looks to be a legitimate platform for writers to get noticed and get paid for the material they submit and gets read by subscribers to the site. As always looking forward to your next chapter.

  7. I don’t know if it is a coincidence or not but my brother’s name is Simon and you look so similar to him 🙂 also I am loving your stories 👍🏼

  8. Outstanding!! And this comes from a woman who’s had a life-long terror of spiders. I didn’t see the end coming — nice surprise!

  9. Hello Sebastian! That’s me again. I am very sorry for disturbing you. I am so thankful that you were first to like me, and I clearly involve in plot of your stories so I would like to ask about opportunity to get contact with you to get information about WordPress platform’s opportunities. Thank you!

  10. Wow! Your fiction blog and beautiful and well-done! I’m so grateful you liked one of my posts which gave me a path to find yours! Cheers, and thank you.

  11. I enjoyed reading this story! My favorite lines: “While its watering mouth spilled saliva” and “The creature continued approaching… The expression on Simon’s face changed, the fear disappeared and he became the hunter”. I would love to see how he hunts this hungry creature. So good!

  12. Hey, you read one of my completely random blogs that I really wasn’t expecting anyone to ever find, but I thought I’d repay the favour and discovered your blog.

    And I’m glad I did because I absolutely loved the story!!! And that was even without the context of the prequel which I can’t wait to read.
    I’ll definitely check out the rest once I make it through my exams.

  13. I will need to spend some time reading much more of your work. Looking forward to it.
    This was very exciting and, as others have said, is quickly and effectively engrossing. Great writing.

  14. Nice chapter and cliff hanger for a graphic novel. There was an interesting graphic novelist on Talk of Iowa today 6/7 name Benjamin Percy who gave out some interesting knowledge about publication of genre work. He also works for Marvel and is coming out with his own series of SF novelas and a superhero. Talk of Iowa comes on WSUI/IPR if you care to listen. But I found him very interesting.

      1. I would love that. I enjoyed your story very much. And thank your for your concern. Mostly my rambling is just me being whiny or saying things I can’t to a world that doesn’t know me. Luckily, or perhaps divinely, the worst scenario of the situation you refer to has blown over.

  15. But… … …Sebastian? Its just a list, bullet points about what is important to me. I’m not really a writer. More of a collator or a curator. I used to be a psychotherapist; 45 years of it, until my stroke. That’s the story I should be telling. Meeting the Angel of Death during brain surgery. Wow!

    I feel too old, too tired. Bilbo Baggins at the end of Lord of the Rings. Drift away, lille Hobbit, its time for a new adventure.

  16. Love the ending when he becomes the hunter. Good writing, keeps one in suspense and the picture of what I believe of a spider fits perfect with the story. I liken it to the devil, who once was an angel, but fell because of pride. I will be back for more.

  17. Amazing narration. Loved it.! I was expecting a little different climax at the end. Simon after helpless moves fell dizzy and when opened his eyes found himself in the same situation like in the beginging of the story. And the story goes in the loops..
