The Crystal Fortress

18-year-old Cole has questions about his last name, which he had never before known...until he met Crystal. A quiet, but fierce girl, exactly how he liked them.

17-year-old Crystal Summers is as cold as ice and as bright as summer's sun. Her lifetime question was always "Who are my parents?" As her regular life turns into a deep, dark time for survival, she must rely on herself, trusting no one. Or can she?

The Xenos are the lifetime killers. Wanting to destroy the world and create a new world full of "new creatures", everybody believed nobody would ever find such people that would serve them back to where they came from. Crystal and Cole must find how to defeat the Xenos, meanwhile, get their human rights back. Can they succeed?


5. Fear is Gone with the Wind

          Look. I know dying sounds really creepy and drop-dead horrible. It actually wasn't like that. Well, for me, it wasn't. That wasn't exactly something new, cause' everything that happens to me isn't original, though I would like it if it actually was. It makes me famous, in a way, even if I do die being a tad of a loser. 

          Somebody tall and strong grabbed my legs from underneath me and pulled me so hard I feel red bruises already popping up from the rough edges of the sturdy rope. Like, people. Be smart. Pulling me from a cage of thick rope is really painful. Nice try, whoever it is. Suspicion- Cole. Don't know if I'm actually right yet. I just got this feeling that it is very him.

          Somehow, if this is what dying felt like, I don't like it anymore. It was originally peaceful and soft. "Crystal! WAKE UP!", a familiar voice yelled through my silent treatment, jolting me awake. Ha, I was really sleeping. Oops again. So many 'Oops' in my life. Of course! Who else could it be, but Cole? He is such a hero...whatever. Like I care about him. All I care is myself, and it's selfish. But, I can never take such a huge responsibility. I mess up. Again and again and again. Nothing could ever change that. I wish, but no.


I remember something...





How could I have forgotten? 

My biggest fear ever...HEIGHTS! 

          Even if Cole does get me out of that wretched place, he would have to somehow persuade me to come down there, because it's just never going to be ever possible. I'm a scaredy-cat. There, I just admitted it. To myself. Yay, yay, and yay.

          Then, suddenly, out of nowhere, a pair of arms, grabbed on to my waist and let him/her and me crash down into the ground at top speed. Everything was very high, heights everywhere. I closed my eyes tightly and gasped for air every time a wind current hit me. Then, I felt invincible. I realized something. I have finally overcome my darkest fear, by jumping into the fear itself, I have finally done this incredible goal.
