Peril of Providence
Peril of Providence was the first short story I had ever written; however, I wrote it shortly after completing my first Novel, "Chains of Fate - Fallen Heroes." Though my writing remains unpublished, I look forward to sharing my Novel along with several other Short Stories that I have written in the near future.
When I wrote Peril of Providence, the first short story of the, "Seeds of Fate," short story set, I really wanted to find an easy, non-traditional way of putting several characters from my book in a situation that would only partially define the plot of the Novel that I had just completed. However, this was the first time that I had ever written in a Third Person perspective.
Though I found the new style slightly challenging, I learned how to bend and blend perspectives in a rather interesting way through this story. At the end the story, I managed to actually change the precieved perspective from third to second; because in fact, the story was in a second person prespective. This led to other ideas in future titles that will be published on this site in the near future.
I hope you enjoyed reading, or will enjoy reading my first Short Story titled, "Peril of Providence." Though it is a simple tale, I believe that it holds a message that can speak to most anyone. No one knows what our future has in store for us. No one knows where the path of life will take us. For Tanantha, she was once a simple little girl who swung on a swing and played to her hearts content. But her brief in encounter with evil told a tale that would soon be a reality that will haunt her for the rest of her life.
