You there. Imagine seeing Death on a person before they die. Add to that, never telling anyone because you know for sure that you'll be taken away the moment you warn even your only friend. For extra impact, tack on haunting visions of a second "Great War" looming on the horizon, including the death of your grandparents in Nagasaki. Welcome to the world of Dierdre Hall, a half Japanese girl living just over the Golden Gate from San Francisco, who fears that the time will soon come that she must confess her secret and betray herself in order to keep living.

@BlackSwan101 Thank you- I tend to have my stories be rooted in actual events or a modern setting, then throw in something either supernatural or sci-fi, because sometimes reality gets boring to write. Now that people are reading, I'll make sure to update this more often.

                                    Haha, well I wanted to have something that would make the oblivious reader stop for a moment and look back to see if there really was a barking camel anywhere ;)

@Riverlike Thanks for pointing that out- I usually get into this typing frenzy when I decide to actually sit down and do it, and then I forget to go through and proof everything. I'll make sure to do that.

Interesting concept. I like how you started it.
                                    "The Camel Barked." hehe that just makes me laugh.
