What had only a couple days ago seemed like a normal, beautiful Spring day for the people of Belgium, has now turned into a nightmare. Kaleb Herschel is a 16 year old boy living in Belgium when a horrid black spider takes over his country. At first, it acts as if it is willing to cooperate with them....and perhaps leave them in peace? But when it begins to show its unrelenting, unmerciful power, the Herschel family must try to survive...together. With fathers careful plans and mothers love, the Herschel family prepares to abandon all hopes of the spiders withdrawal and begin preparations to leave their beloved home, but when Kaleb's closest friend ruins their plot, Kaleb finds himself surviving alone in a dark and unforgiving world....and not only in the world, but in his heart. After joining a group of saboteurs who help him to stay alive, he finds himself suddenly in the hands of his enemies, and as he prepares himself for his end, he nearly misses the very opportunity which could not only turn out to be his freedom, but the freedom of his entire country, if not the whole world. But as with every decision, there is a decision behind itself. In Kaleb's case, he must give up what seems like his only defense in the hopes of finding himself free in the end. But what if? What if his captor and only possible means of escape is a set up.....totally fake and meant to drive him into some kind of trap? Why else would his captor share such valuable information with him? Will he risk his life to rescue his family and nation or let the ever suppressant spider, better known as the Swastika of the 3rd Reich, stomp out their very existence?
So this is a short overview of my MC (Main Character) Kaleb Herschel. Hopefully you all were able to get a little glimpse at the kind of life my MC has. Sadly, I feel this overview does not really hit on his feelings and emotions as much as the tragedy and dilemma Kaleb is facing. I am not quite sure which is better though. Which do you prefer....Emotions and feelings or tragedy and dilemma? Oh...and what do y'all think about the black spider? For those of you who are wondering....yes, I did first hear of that on The Sound of Music but I thought it was sort of mysterious so I added it!
Alrighty! I hope you all have a super day!
