Thread: Short story (1st 3 paragraphs)
Yes, I wrote it...it's actually a comic book that I'm illustrating/writing. Hehe...would you like me to continue?
My parents died when I was really young, about when I was six. It was a closed casket funeral, the dreariness hightened by the grey weather. I wasn't allowed to see them, to say goodbye...
The next day I was sent to Japan to live with my aunt and uncle. Aunt Rosa was my mom's younger sister, a spitting image. She had long blonde locks that trailed down her back, crling slightly. Her green eyes alsways seemed to smile, and her lips in a grin.
She taught me many things, such as how to read and write, Japanese customs, and some of the history. I especially loved it when she played the shamisen (*).
Uncle Lee was a martial arts master, who trained me everyday, believing I would become something great. I attended his sessions with fellow students and soon becoame the top of my class. After, when everyone else had left, he would teach me the secret ways of the samurai.
(*)shamisen is a banjo-type instrument
Ok...so it's a work in progress...like I said, with a comic book and can illustrate some of these details, but I had to go back and rewrite it like this *shrugs* hope it's ok...
I can't wait to hear more
