Tomorrow's Visitor

Tomorrow liked solitude. Then a naked lunatic arrived and demanded pants. Things went downhill from there.

Helen Thinks: Tomorrow is a hermit; a hermit that has managed to achieve the solitude that he likes by living in a house that is perched on the edge of a cliff so he is not expecting the knock on his door. Opening the door, he expects it to be a hiker lost on his travels but is stunned to see that it is a naked man demanding pants and will not take no for an answer. Deciding to take pity on the man – well, he did not really have a choice – he gave the man pants hoping that would get rid of him. His plan did not work. From there, things only got worse...

Do you want to know what the best thing about this story was? It was the fact that DeliriousEphemera managed to characterise Tomorrow perfectly. Sometimes writers can over exaggerate when it comes to describing characters that are grouchy, sarcastic and a loner like Tomorrow but that is not the case in ‘Tomorrow’s Visitor’. Yes, Tomorrow is all those things but thanks to DeliriousEphemera’s flawless writing you can actually imagine the character in your mind. I must admit, I was not keen on the character of Soren to start with. I found him too brazen to be realistic but then when his profession of an escort came out I could see how his characteristics had developed and suddenly believed in him. The highlight is that they are two completely contrasting characters that mesh beautifully together.

As you all know, my pet peeve is having more dialogue than narration and when you read this story you’ll see that this goes against my love of narration. It is more dialogue and yet it just compliments the story. I actually believe that I could have read this story without any narration at all because the dialogue between the two characters was spot on. I could only describe it as downright perfection.

With its wonderful characters, fast pace and laugh out loud moments, ‘Tomorrow’s Visitor’ is a story that will have you hooked in seconds.
