Hi, need this story for an ebook that i want to publish in English.
20000-22000 words, i will own the rights of the story you send me and then integrate it for possible future publishing.
I will grant the prize to the writer that sends me the best 6000-8000 words of this story, and then give him/her another 120 $ when he/she delivers the entire story.
The story is in the Twilight Zone Genre/Style and is about a boy who is mind controlled by an alien.
The boy 23 years old had a difficult early youth, is not particularly smart, he's indeed mediocre, does not have a direction, is bored and boring.
The alien is a superior entity who choose the boy when he was 6 and killed the parents through a strange accident to confine to boy in orphanage,
and live on earth through the body of the boy.
The alien gives the boy a gift: to perceive, but only in boy's mind the inner situation of the people, their souls, their mission in this life, previous life
failures and joys, current hidden goals and traps, so he's like an angel that can understand everything about a person but doesn't know
about the specific future of anyone because there is free will and self determination in place on planeth earth.
Furthermore the boy is not able to communicate what he feels to anybody except telepatically with the alien.
In the book you can write: the chapter of when he was 6 years old, the encounter with the alien, the discovery of the gift, the analysis of the soul and mission on earth of 3 people that than will be killed by the boy (here's the core of the story, why should the powerful and superior alien kill people? what is the reason behind?), the final with the separation with the alien and the lose of boy's divinatory power, and some exciting idea to let intend the reader that the alien will come back again soon to act on planet earth.
