Oh, thank you for reviving this old post so that we can see what we missed. Is this the same ghost that we're currently reading about? I like how you merge reality with this vision plus the spiritual strength found in music and even the "mental library of after school cartoons." I like the fatherly love he has for his little sister and how that motivates him to keep fighting and remain strong.

    Hi, Helen! I just realized I needed one more review to get a Gold Ribbin. So, I decided to open my wallet a little. :)

    Thank you for your review! This entity here is different. It?s the one that El encounters when he is 11 years old. This entity is the one that controls the girl in the dorm, and feeds off her soul, uses her like a battery to exist in our world. Therefore, it?s up to El to free her soul in order to be reborn again in another time and place. The ghost girl in the dorm will suffer eternal imprisonment by this entity, a demon I guess, if El can?t use both his sixth sense, his natural use of logic and math, his athleticism, and his ability to overcome the peer pressure of being a young adolescent who is trying to figure out himself while overcoming the challenges of being a minority and narcissistic parenting. It?s a lot to handle.

    Hope you read on! Thank you again!

    Euell

Interesting story about a boy dealing with a terrifying situation leading up to his ultimate question. Very interesting choice of the question about what would superman do.

This is particularly emotive prose, conveying the scene and the boy's trepidation and fright well {thumbs up}.

Here are a few points you might like to consider:

The moment confronts him like the illusion of a convincing movie -- I like this snippet; it's original and perceptive {smiles}.

His presses his back tensely against the wall -- If this was mine, I'd omit "tensely". Pressing your back to a wall in itself displays an agitated state.

Whether this boy, who was no stranger to the uncertainty inside him, was prepared, or not he would make the choice that would decide the fate of both his future -- I'd omit the comma after "prepared" and add it after "or not" instead.

the shiver of his humming -- I like this snippet. A shivered hum conveys the boy's terror {thumbs up}.

These opening stanzas are truly long --

Eu El waits cautiously behind the door, unsure of how to separate the perception of realism between the deception of what feels like a dream, confronting him like a mirage of water in the desert heat.

The confusion of what feels less and less the house he grew up in, deepens like another complicated equation he is unable to solve.

I had to re-read them 4 times each to understand noun and verb arrangement.

After the fourth try, I think I understand what you were conveying.

After that, your story took off well enough.

Loved the wrap up at the end.

Believing in Superman is not a bad thing...some boys have this character as an idol. He has strength, power that no one else has in his movies. I hope the character gets help from Superman, and no more criticism. Glad that you got recognized.

    Thank you for your kind review and ratings. The story continues onto the next chapter: ?Voices Pt.2,? which is already submitted. Hope you can venture there, where the character discovers hope. Thank you again!

I like the idea behind the picture you're trying to create, but it feels unfinished. Like there needs to be more detail and a clearer picture painted. In the beginning you paint the picture of a boy, unknown age, hiding behind a door with his back against a wall, but no understanding of the room he's in or how he got there. The description "what feels less and less the house he grew up in..." feels cut short.
Is this a dream?
The first metaphor seems out of place.
It seems you have the makings of some good outline, it just needs to be elaborated and a clearer picture painted for the reader.

    PLEASE read the additional information provided on the page.

    ?THIS IS A CHAPTER IN THE BOOK, ?SUPER FORTUNE COOKIES.?

    Every question you asked was already written in previous chapters, as well as chapters already submitted past Chapter 3.

    It?s an ongoing story.

    I take it now you understand this it doesn?t matter to you and you left me with a negligent rating.
