Chapter 6 - Outlandish
The sun shone through living room window waking Shamus. He slept for thirteen hours and awakened at his normal time for work. Shamus passed if off to his pre-programming, hurried to shower, and dress. The only reason he hurried to work it was his responsible for opening the office doors. No one in the office was reliable enough, so his boss gave him the key. Since he was rarely sick, the chance the office might not be open in time was minimal.
Shamus sat at his desk checking emails when Liz Roberts walked in the door. She was always five to ten minutes late, but no one cared. It was one luxury of working in a Doctor’s office. Liz dressed in blue scrubs, which meant it was Friday.  Each day the nurses and staff

Chapter 5–Revelations
Shamus stepped into his apartment; he considered everything Martha and Renee told him. For the last week, he visited the house every day asking questions and trying to wrap his head around the stories the group told. The stories sounded like a comic book. As he drove home this time, he contemplated that the group might share a common belief system or myths that added to their psychosis. Their actions alone spoke volumes of being paranoid, isolationist, and developing a fantasy world supported their altered view of reality. The explanation worked except for the events at the restaurant. The events at the Psychic Fair, and the following events at the restaurant were real. Even if the group might be deranged, there was

CHAPTER 4 - Seeker
The room was dark except for a lone candle on the desk. It illuminated little of the desk. The dark-haired man in his mid-twenties dressed in a lime green t-shirt and blue jeans sat behind the desk. He used the candle flame to mediate and focus his personal psychic energy.
"Well? Can you tell me where the Guardian escaped?" David paced his office. He has brought one of the newest recruited Way seekers into the office to find his prey. "Is there any sign of the Defender?" The reports from the field suggested he located people, and other things.
“Sir,” The voice shook. “I see nothing. It is as if they vanished.” A hint of surprise and disbelief was clear in his voice. “I’

CHAPTER 3–The Gathering
Shamus tossed and turned in bed. In his dream, two men and a woman chased him through the Red Carpet hotel and they wanted to kill him. An endless hallway with many doors greeted him as he turned the corner from his pursuers. He needed to choose to either run or open a door and go through it.
The first door he opened to a peaceful scene of him sitting on a couch holding a child. The child was his, and a red-headed women gathering items in the kitchen. His wife surrounded by peace and calm. Shamus noted the wall projection television as an anchor spoke scenes of chaos aired behind him. He did not hear what was being said, but he and his wife looked worried.
Outside the house, he observed the chaos. People packing th

Chapter 2 –The Fair
The Red Carpet Inn, a small hotel on the edge of town near the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, was a thirty-year-old property kept up by the owners who took pride in their hotel. It was a stopping spot for travelers passing through Albuquerque on their way back east on I-25. There was nothing special around the Inn except for the smaller events it housed in its conference rooms. It has the occasional convention, and today, it sponsored a Psychic Fair.
Shamus always wanted to go to a Psychic Fair. He was as excited as a child waiting for Christmas morning. Martha and Kevin shared their experiences on the fairs they attended. He wanted to go to one, but didn't from fear. Shamus thought most of the people there practice

The Eternals: BK1 The Gathering - CH01 Intro
CHAPTER 1–Introductions
“You will not win!” Shamus McBride woke with a start. The same dream haunted him for the past couple of nights and manifested every night. Whatever happened in the dream whether real, or not? He couldn’t explain the events, and he never remembered. The focus centered on the reaction to the presence attacking him. Whatever powered this dream, it caused him to wake in sweat-soaked sheets, pillow, and heart racing every morning for the last week.
Shamus wiped the sweat off his face and got out of bed, tossed the sheets into the laundry basket next to closet door. He grabbed his jogging shorts on the floor next to his bed and dressed. Since he slept in the nude, Shamus found it uncomfortable having his roommate Kevin Oak barged into his room and see him naked. Shamus didn't grasp why Kevin made him uncomfortable, but homophobic or other psychological or physical explanations were easy to dismiss.
Shamus was not interested in sex. He was a vir

PROLOGUE
“Do you imagine that you will get over your dissatisfaction, ÆR’el? You’re not one of them, and you know it. Why do you try to be them? Father did not create you to be one of  them, and you understand that. Why?” The woman’s voice rang above the tranquil sounds in the valley. Her disbelief audible in the pitch and stresses she placed on the words as they lingered in the valley.
ÆR’el heard this tone. He recognized its intentions. ÆR’el chose the position he was in because of the problem at hand. His feelings boiling in his being were beyond verbal. Yet, the woman, an apparition, was his sister. She wanted to understand. Why? “I so want to be with them. So, tired of bei

Interests
Just a note to everyone who watches me, I've posted another chapter of the Eternals making the total Five plus the Prologue. The Prologue is actually very important to the story, so don't skip it. I'm looking for critiques on the chapters, or anything I might have missed in content.  I've gotten some very nice feedback from readers so far, so if you haven't checked out the story please do.

It's probably a 30 minute read at them moment. The story is an Reader Copy which means I haven't published it yet.  A Reader Copy is one usually sent out by publishing houses before the book is printed.  The readers are expected to return feedback and provide corrections if they find any.

Here are the links for the chapters.

I hope you enjoy my story.
I plan on writing three books for this story. This is the first one taking me about a year to write. I am not a fast writer.

The reason I'm posting on Deviant is to test the waters. I want to see if there is an interest in the story. It will help me market the book to publishers who are unsure of the risk of a new writer. 

This story is not a comedy. The best term for it is an Urban Fantasy. It has a mix of fantasy, occult, and psychic elements. There are vampires, witches, demons, angels, GOD, and bears - oh my. Okay, it's not the kind of bears you might think.

Again - I hope you enjoy the read.
