Amina  (journalistam) Prologue

Oh, oh, oh, oh my! This is so good. I'm totally into it. Wonderfully written, captures the readers attention the minute you start reading. I'm totally intrigued! Here are a few tiny mistakes I found:

Ill start by explaining the geographical part of it.
-Punctuation: Ill should have an apostrophe.


in this world, I am a slave in a desert tribe.
-Capital letter needs fixing.

Amina  (journalistam) Chapter One

My eyes shot to hers
-There needs to be a full stop after this sentence.

“Its not form a lack of trying” I muttered.
-I don't quite get this sentence. Firstly, the Its should have an apostrophe. Also, do you mean 'from' instead of 'form'?

A word of advice: paragraphing this story will greatly help your readers.

Man, this is awesome. Brook makes me shiver; poor Aqua, I love her for rebelling. You know, I've written a similar story. Read it if you have time. It's called the Rebel. But anyway, I'm really liking this. And I'll keep reading and throwing feedback. Tell me if yyou don't want this kind of feedback ^ and I'll stop. Hope I'm of help :D

Amina  (journalistam) Chapter Two

I was woken this morning by my tutor,and half brother Ret.
- space after the comma.

“get washed and be at breakfast in fifteen minutes,”
-capital letter.

a dress the hung loosely on my thin frame.
-that hung loosely...

Wayne and i weren't twin boys
-'I' should be capital.

I always wondered why my curls could lay flatter like Starr’s
-Do you mean 'couldn't' or am I getting it wrong?

the sun was to high in the air.
-capital letter

Then I ran back in and grabbed and grabbed a quill and stack
-delete the repeated words.

Hmm, Wayne sounds like an interesting character. The way she said 'when their not using their poers for water, there throwing poor, innocent girls out of bed...' that was fuunny! =) an't wait to read on..

Chapter Three

“I believe you have work to do” he said after a moment
My eyes shot to his in outrage

-Full stops.

I am the master here. And if I tell you to do something, you do it. understood?”
-Understood should have a capital.

instead of trying not to do what aren’t supposed to
-not to do what you aren't...

You have ten minuets. Hurry up”
-'minutes' spelt wrong.

Lol, I love her sarcasm. Aqua's my fave character yet, and I'm betting she'll stay my fave carater through the story.

Amina  (journalistam) Chaper Four

“he wont find me. he never comes in here, he’s too lazy. If anyone finds me it’ll be Stanin.”
-capital letters.

“besides, I thought you like seeing me.”
-again, capital letter.

There's a lot of sentences that need the capitalword-correcting. Check it out...

I’m always curios about what he’s learning.
-curious spelt wrong.

“its from the library. Its about the tribes in the mountains. Its so different!|
-Capital letter. its needs an apostrophe. Also, you need the speech marks in the end.

as different from the other tribes.’”I looked back at Wayne. “you find this interesting?”
-extra speech marks have been added.

Ret was laying on his bed, seemingly sleeping.
-lying not laying.

You need to correct a lot of punctuation and capital letters. But it's okay, it happens with all of us. I really hate all of those idiots who are torturing and hurting the two main chacracters; you guys have done a great job here. I can see it right in front of me like a movie. Great job!

Brook was most defiantly NOT lenient.

The feeling of dread growing larger by the minuet,
-minute spelt wrong.

pushed be hard enough to send me sprawling into the room
-me, not be

forcing my to look into the cold black eyes.
-forcing me

OH MY GOD! EVILNESSSS!!

I almost drowned in disappear
-dissapear? do you mean 'despair'?

[yes, I do that every once I a while if I really can't stand my master]
-once in a while.

oh man, I'm so scared. She's sent back; I'm glad. But I dread to think about what'll happen to poor Aqua at the shaman's house. Honeslt, Mared was a fuck--- ... sorry. He's such a loser man. I hate him!
