Read My NaNoWriMo Novel: The Caleb Morse Code

'Cause why not?

I will have to edit some things out, to match the CB's super strong filter, but the general storyline should stay the same.

I'll post the first chapter as soon as this is up!

A/N: I wouldn't call this the best chapter I've ever written, but it's what I have right now. So, I hope you enjoy!

{ Chapter One }

Good evening.” The woman said to me, smiling hesitantly.

I stayed where I was seated,  on a ceiling rafter in the far corner of the dark falling apart room.

“I heard from your friends outside that you need a bit of help, right?”

The ‘people’ from The Outside are definitely not my friends.

Her smile wavered, “I’m Mrs. Màthair. What’s your  name?”

I stayed quiet, and scooted deeper into the darkness.

“Your last name too, might I add. Do you remember it?”

I decided to look at the so-called ‘Mrs. Màthair’. She had raven black hair, with emerald eyes. Pale skin. She wore an outfit you would see the stereotypical reporters wear. But I know she’s not a reporter.

She’s barely even human.

Mrs. Màthair sighed, and walked out the door.

I heard her talking to one of The Guards, and soon, she returned.

“So, Caleb Morse, any reason why you’re being so quiet?”

Silence.

“How has your day been?”

After a moment of more silence, I started tapping the beam I sat on.

“Caleb...?” 

I started tapping faster and faster, until-

“What are you doing?”

I paused, then gave up, sighing. Of course she wouldn’t understand.

There was a knocking on the door, and a head of one of The Guards popped through.

“You’re time is up ma’am. Leave.” The man ordered.

“But- but I’ve barely made any progress with him! I just arrived!”

“It isn’t your job to make ‘progress’ with him.” The man continued tiredly, “You said, you wanted to see the boy, and you did. What else do you want?”

“I want to help him!” Mrs. Màthair exclaimed, even angrier.

“Morse isn’t someone you’re allowed to help, ma’am. He’s just the average traumatized child you would find here.”

Here. The Prìosanach Domicile.

It’s a small town, located in The Woods, with buildings that seem like they’ve been built decades ago, scattered around everywhere.

Did I say decades ago? Sorry, I meant centuries.

The houses were nothing more then broken remains, the walls and floors cracked and rotting. Most of the roofs have caved in, and the windows shattered. The plants in The Woods were so overgrown, that even my small cabin wasn’t safe from the grass peaking through the floorboards, the vines lining the crumbling walls, and the tree growing in the corner.

There’s not much to say about The Woods. It just looks like a normal forest. And if you go far enough, you’d see The End of The World.

Or The Wall that blocks off The End Of The World.

I don’t know much about The End Of The World, only that The Outside is there.

The Outside is where The Guards and Mrs. Màthair live.

I lived there once too, until my family asked The Guards to take me here.

It’s because the only thing on the other side is The Guards, The Government, and The Monsters.

The Monsters seem like normal people, but they’re not. They’re not a Guard, Government, or a Prìosanach.

They’re horrible things. Creatures who have stripped away all of their humanity for the sake of their hunger for evil.

I don’t quite understand why The Guards let The Monsters in sometimes. But nothing happens, not with The Guards here, so I guess it’s okay.

The Guards usually never go into The Woods otherwise, they usually just stay on The Wall all the time, where we can’t see them.

“Goodbye Caleb!” The Monster said, snapping me out of my trance.

I watched The Guard and The Monster walk out, my anxiety disappearing with them.

Whooooa this is really good! The setting is really original and the character is such an enigma. You totally have me hooked. (Also I'm pretty sure since his name is Caleb Morse and he was tapping on the wooden beam, he speaks in Morse code, which he invented (maybe?) and doesn't actually speak out loud.)
