*******www.musicaltales****/helena Fantasy Novel [audio book online] This is the very unique fiction audio book of music composer Stephane Meer. It is a sort of free online manga with a strong music background and lots of pictures of dragons, wolves and fantasy characters. HELENA and the orchestra of the world of mist for Héléne Grimaud On the village street leading away from the school, Sohane and Costia walked together. Helena was on the way home, and Sohane was going to join her horse, “Fire”, who was pastured in a field belonging to Costia’s father. “If you want to know if the electricity works, put your tongue on the wire, and if you turn blue, you know it works.”, Costia said amusingly; “Your jokes are a little tiring”, Sohane answered. Aren’t you ever going to grow up?” Costia took the insult in sulky silence. “Helena, how’s your grandfather holding up?, Sohane asked. “He’s okay I guess, but he hardly says a word. He’s like in a state of shock since my parents disappeared. I think he uses all his strength calling people, trying to speed up the search, waiting for them to come back, reacting to the slightest noise, and all that doesn’t leave him with much energy for anything else.” “Still no word from the police, I guess.” “No. They don’t understand it. There’s no sign, no clue that they were kidnapped, and no motive either. They’re starting to wonder if my folks just took off, and that maybe we’re making everything else up. Since I’m a minor, they didn’t have the right to abandon me, but they could have given my grandfather custody of me. I’m just saying what the police think, because I know that that’s impossible. I spoke to them the night before. I went to bed, and during the night, I heard shouting. I went downstairs, and they were gone. All their stuff was still in the house. They couldn’t have left on their own like that. It’s absolutely impossible”, Helena said in total frustration. “I know exactly how you feel. I know your folks. Everyone around here likes them. I’m sure they had some kind of a problem and they can’t get home. There’s got to be an explanation, and things are bound to work out. Anyway, just remember that your parents love you, and that they would never just leave you like that of their own free will. I know it’s hard on your grandfather and on you, and if there’s anything I can do…” “Thanks, Sohane. It’s really nice to know that you’re there?” “Hey, what about me? I’m here too, you know, although maybe you didn’t notice”, complained Costia. “Oh, poor little ignored Constantine”, said Sohane mockingly. “Thanks, Costia. I know you’re both good friends. I don’t know what I’d do without you.” Fantasy Novel [audio book online]
