Falcon Boy: A Fairly Hopeless Hero Volume 1: 24 ‘It goes without saying …’

Troublebot

 

Inspired by Pearly Stockwell, Ellis began to ask some questions.

‘Are you underwater?’ she began. ‘Can you hear fish swimming, dolphins talking or the secret singing of crabs?’

‘I can’t hear anything,’ said Falcon Boy. And even though he strained really hard, it was true, he couldn’t. Ellis tried again.

‘Are you really hot like you would be in the desert? Or if you were buried at the earth’s core?’

‘I don’t think so,’ replied Falcon Boy. ‘It is getting a bit stuffy in here, but I think that is due more to the fact that me and Bewilder Bird are piled in on top of each other than because we are somewhere ferociously hot.’

Ellis thought again.

‘Are you really cold?’ she continued. ‘Do you think you might be at the South Pole or floating in deep dark outer space?’

To Ellis, like all children everywhere and hopefully some adults as well, the world is a never-filled box that overflows with the most marvellous, magical, wonderful and amazing all kinds of everything. All you have to do is be alive to the possibility that there is always more to know.

Like the most satisfying drink you have ever tasted, one that you can’t stop gulping down, Ellis is simply consumed by the desire to learn and she drinks eagerly, heartily and regularly.

As a result, her head is full of facts and figures and pictures and faces and ideas and theories and notions and fantasies and sightings and soundings and it goes without saying that (I like it so much when people say this that I wrote it and then put a line through it to somehow prove a point) some of these are very real and some of these are not so real. Some of these are imagined and some are made-up. Others are half-remembered or almost-forgotten, but all of these ideas and things are completely compelling and absolutely, undoubtedly and utterly her own.

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
