Just a young writer from Singapore. I'm currently working on a long running novel, which I have titled: Raymond Winters. Stick around for short stories and long ones. I generally write stories, but I do enjoy writing a quick piece now and then.

Terra opened her eyes, and was immediately hit with a blinding white light that only seemed to get brighter with each passing second. Raising her hand up to shield her eyes, the young captain blinked slowly as her vision adjusted.
