The Silent Waters by Brittainy C. Cherry


Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

Moments in our life are what define us. It can make it great or it can leave us speechless. When tragedy strikes Maggie at a young age, it leaves her speechless. And nothing anyone does will get her to talk. She communicates with them, but not with her voice.

Brooks is the boy that Maggie has loved since she was very young and their friendship has kept them both going. When Maggie didn't want to be around anyone, it was Brooks and his music player that got through to her.

Brooks is Maggie's brother Calvin's best friend. And they started a band with Rudolph and Oliver. Making music is all they want to do. And with a push from Maggie, things begin to happen for them. While Brooks, Calvin, and the boys head to L.A., Maggie is left in her silent world waiting for Brooks to come back. But she will never tell him that because she wants him to be happy, and music makes him happy.

When tragedy strikes Brooks, he tries to push Maggie away and she pushes back. Can Maggie make Brooks see that she understands his pain? Will he finally see just what her loneliness was really like? After she reveals her secret, that is when both of their worlds change and for the better. This story was written in present and in future time, so don't be surprised if there are a few things you may notice, it is a story after all.

This is the third story in the Elements series and I loved it. It made me cry, laugh, and broke my heart many times. This story may not be for everyone but I think everyone should read it. You just might get something from it that will touch you in some way.

Brittainy Cherry has been in love with words since the day she took her first breath. She graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in Creative Writing. She loves to take part in writing screenplays, acting, and dancing--poorly of course. Coffee, chai tea, and wine are three things that she thinks every person should partake in! Brittainy lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her family. When she's not running a million errands and crafting stories, she's probably playing with her adorable pets.
