In Our Image – Volume 1 Chapter 6

Author’s Note: Long chapter today, I hope you enjoy!

Volume 1 – Chapter 6

When I opened my eyes, I found that I was laying on the floor, still dressed in my makeshift armor from the previous night and with a large blanket thrown haphazardly over my body, covering only my right leg and half of my torso. After a moment of grogginess in which I heavily debated with myself on whether to get up or go back to sleep, I pushed myself into a sitting position, letting the pot fall off of my head and clatter to the ground.

Miller was at my side, laying on his stomach with the lower half of his body hidden under the bed and the upper half covered by a blanket identical to mine. Although he seemed to be sleeping soundly, he woke up when the cookware made contact with the floor, fumbling around under the cover for a few moments before poking his head out and squinting at the sudden presence of light.

“What happened?” he asked, standing and stretching with a yawn. I did the same, and was surprised to find that, after moving, I didn’t feel tired at all, despite only getting around five hours of sleep.

In Our Image – Volume 1 Chapter 5

Author’s Note: A pretty laid back chapter, but this marks the beginning of the story picking up. I hope you look forward to it!

Volume 1 – Chapter 5

After dragging us backwards through the halls of the part of the house we had just traveled and then taking us in an entirely new direction, keeping a vice grip on our wrists the entire time, Cat dropped us unceremoniously into  the guest room, allowing us to fall through the doorway and crash to the ground.

“Dinner’s in ten minutes,” she said in an official, commanding tone. ‘Get changed and washed up–you’re both filthy. I’ll see you there.”

The receding sound of her footsteps told me that she had left, but I couldn’t be sure, as my face was still buried in the carpet from the fall. It smelled like lemons.

In Our Image – Volume 1 Chapter 4

Author’s Note: Here’s a bit of a longer chapter for you guys. Hope you enjoy!

Volume 1 – Chapter 4

There was no one around, everyone having either already gone home or to other parts of the school to take part in various activities, which allowed Cat to move even faster than usual. In no time at all, she had left me behind, speeding through the empty corridor and laughing.

I thought she might leave the building without me, but after a few minutes she reappeared, running towards rather than away from me, and for a second I feared we would have a repeat of the incident with that random kid a few minutes earlier.

Thankfully, however, we both stopped before that happened, and Cat instead moved to my side, matching my pace.

In Our Image – Volume 1 Chapter 3

Author’s Note: Sorry for the late release, guys! I hope you enjoy it.

Volume 1 – Chapter 3

Miller and I made it to school about fifteen minutes after leaving Cat behind–when she’s not with us, our amount of time fooling around drastically decreases, and we cut our travel time nearly in half. It was an odd experience, walking through the gates and not encountering a wave of latecomers, with whom we’re usually included, but I’d have to say I enjoyed it. Leisurely, we headed to our homeroom.

The halls were nearly empty, and the few people who were there paid me no attention, a refreshing change from the usual routine. Cat tends to draw quite a bit of attention naturally, and so it’s often hard to avoid the curious gaze of my peers.

But that morning I was invisible, and it made me happy.

In Our Image – Volume 1 Chapter 2

Author’s Note: Short chapter today, but I hope you enjoy!

Volume 1 – Chapter 2

“Aaaassheerrrr!!!!”

Her voice travelled through the air, bouncing off of the clouds, clanging from the sidewalk, and shattering through the window until it reached my ears with a screech. I opened my eyes.

“Aaaaasheeeeer!!!!!!!”

Surely it was the voice of an angel, sent from the high heavens to pull me from my slumber, get me ready for the day ahead. A heavenly herald of my very own.

Yeah.

In Our Image – Volume 1 Chapter 1

Author’s Note: First chapter of In Our Image, my new OELN/Web Novel. Hope you guys enjoy, and leave a comment telling me what you think! Thanks for reading.

Volume 1 – Chapter 1 

We all know the story of how God created the universe. How before there was death, there was life; how, before our ancestors began descending from the trees, the angels resided in paradise; how before one-third of God’s servants turned against him, there was the catalyst.

Yes, most of us know of God and his works, but what many do not know is that before God commanded peace, there was war.

In Our Image – First Post and Preview!

Hey guys, this is cirruscloud, and I’m currently making my first post. Unfortunately, the first volume of “In Our Image”, the story that I will be posting on this site, has yet to be edited, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t give you at least a little taste of what’s to come!

First of all, let me explain the project:

“In Our Image” is an Original English Light Novel, which follows the teenagers Cat, Asher, and their friends as they are forcefully thrown into the world of the supernatural, of angels and demons, and led on a new path of discovery about their world, their friendships, and even themselves. As they encounter ghosts, ancient warriors, meet with angels and face their own inner demons, what will the pair discover, and how will it affect how they view the world, and their place in it? Find out in this unique blend of the Supernatural, Comedy, and Slice of Life genres!

So, that’s a small description of the story, and now, I hope you enjoy this short preview of the first chapter. The official release date of the story is currently unknown, but I hope you’ll stick with me until then, so that we can all go on this journey together. Thank you!
