College Writing, Quiet

It’s something easy to forget. It makes no sound, and if you don’t seek it out, you’re unlikely to find it, or if you do, you’ll walk right past it thinking that it’s not what you want. But we need it, the same way we need air. Not all the time, but on occasion. We have to step away from our busy lives, slow down, and seek out that essential of life that’s become so hard to find—silence. For me, silence is especially hard to find; my hearing is so sensitive that I can hear my own heartbeat, as well as the drums ensconced in the ribs of those nearby.

It was also in decent light to read, but the trees that dotted the area also gave it a measure of nearby shade. From the satchel at his side, he pulled out a small collection of books, debating between them for a moment before taking one and opening it to a waiting bookmark. He started reading, without hurry, speaking aloud. He spoke as if to an audience, but there wasn’t a living soul anywhere in sight. If anyone should come along and question why he read to apparently empty air, Fenlise had a collection of

It had been an easy swipe—someone had set their backpack down at the bus stop. Wandering past and grabbing that, then bolting away before anybody could stop him, had been simplicity itself. Petty theft might not be the most honorable profession, but it could be both lucrative and a good way to stay in shape.     The bag’s contents were mostly junk as far as Byron was concerned—rain coat, water bottle, a spare shirt for work, heaps of odds and ends.

But it wasn’t dark either; he could see the texture on the ceiling, and faintly make out the pastel color of the walls.

I am me. Mad scientist, swordsman, writer.

If you're coming to say "thanks for the fave", you're welcome. Poke me so I remember to peruse your entire gallery.

Give a llama and you'll get one in return!

I'm always looking for people to read my works and comment on them. As standard policy, it's okay to say "I like this, but you should look at...", or even plain out "I don't like this, terrible piece; here's some specifics of why."
The "ZOMG this is grat ive never read any better ur a gr8 wrtr have a nice day :)" response is...Honestly, it makes me wonder if you even took the time to read the story.
If you like my writing, tell me why; if you like it but found typos and/or confusing bits (I know they're in there!), tell me so I can fix things! And if you don't like it at all, let me know what it was you didn't like so I don't write more of it!
