It all happened so fast. The government and the military did little at the beginning, claiming it was nothing more than an aggressive flu strain. So many were infected that the sick to healthy ratio was 3/1. Then one day it was like a switch was flipped. Everyone who was sick dropped dead at the exact same time. Everywhere around the world. Numerous countries fell into anarchy from losing most of their populations, and martial law took a hold of the world. Thats when the dead came back. I was one of the healthy ones in New Orleans when all hell broke loose. This is my story.

Crime

How do you solve a case where the death occurred twenty storey high inside a locked room where the only ways of escape are a window that leads to a fall straight down to the ground with no ledges or fire-escapes, and a door that was locked from the inside?

How do you do it when you don't even know howthe victim was killed?

1st in the series of cases solved by Adrian.

This is my very first detective story that I wrote in 2012. I had published this earlier here at Penana but had removed it. So, here it is again.

The story is 6 chapters long and already completed. I'll upload a chapter a day for the next 5 days. Hope you readers like it. :)

Some believed the world would end on the 21st December 2012, but as far as I knew it was just the end of the Mayan Calendar.

Nothing terrible would happen to mankind.

However, when the wheels were set in motion it was up to me to stop the one responsible. How a mere mortal like myself would be able to take on a God was beyond me, but I had to try.

My name is Sebastian, and this is my story...

Hyacinth can only watch. Cursed with knowledge, the support of hundreds from her underground newspaper does nothing to make people understand, know, or ever truly believe. As Azdea could never avow the same sentiment, the unstoppable revolution shall either pass the test of time— or fall deep in disrepair for eternity. And what will be the price...

Hey guys, This is a story I partially wrote as a kid when I was borderline illiterate. I always had the ideas and creativity to write, but I didn't have the skills. My friends have helped me come along way but I still have a lot to learn. I love feedback even if it points out weaknesses.

also just a note, the names of the characters may seem ridiculous, but let me explain. This story is inspired by many real life events however unrealistic it may seem. the setting and what not are totally false, but many of the characters are real people and a lot of the conversations, personal struggles, and fights, actually occurred.

Its a war story that takes place shortly after WW2, North America was almost wiped out in a coordinated mass attack that no one saw coming. The attack was defeated, just barely, and USA and Canada were forced to reissue conscription, but since there were so many losses. The minimum age was reduced to the point were 13 year old kids are on the front lines. Nothing big was expected of these kids, however, this story follows a group of kids that not only proved themselves, but gave the Allied forces a fighting chance.

this story has a lot of sarcasm and humor in it, but it is in general a very serious and develops into a dark, sad story. All thoughts are welcome :)
