So I actually wrote this story about two years ago. It was accepted into a superhero anthology and I was giddy and then…The anthology was never made. Despite my disappointment, I decided I still wanted to share this story with the world, so I opted to self-publish it through Amazon. You can pick up the ebook here:
Here’s a synopsis:
Rae must face an enemy that she thought was once a friend. She is faced with an impossible choice. She can use her newly-discovered powers to stop her old friend or she can give into his demands and possibly lose herself in the process. Will she face this battle and find out what she is truly made of or abandon it?
Here’s a short preview:
“You know what makes a hero, right Rae?” Her mother’s words echoed in Rae’s head. “They keep fighting, even if they know they can’t win. They don’t pick their battles. The battles pick them.”
She continued down the rain-soaked city streets as the words reverberated in her head. Even as she tried to think on other things, she could not shake them.
Rae could not remember if she had asked her mother about what a hero was, or if it was just the curious look on her small features that prompted her mother to make the comment, but the words had stuck with her for the next twenty years – long after she had gotten super human abilities of her own.
Long before she had to test her mother’s statement.
