>With a nasty crackle, the hoodlum’s body spun a half-circle in the air, sketching out a single arc.
>The hoodlum slammed into the ground on his side and, though concussed, he frantically scrambled around on all four limbs. Although the surrounding air was bitingly cold, his entire body felt numb, blocking out the chill of the concrete floor. Feeling like a man fleeing blindly through a nightmare, the hoodlum looked back, to discover the source of his fears was following right behind him.
>Standing there was a shadow— just as the word says, it was unmistakably a ‘shadow’.
>The shadow wore a full body black biker’s suit, and there weren’t any unnecessary patterns or emblems, giving the impression of an originally very black piece of clothing that had been dyed further in a deeper ink. If not for the reflection of the florescent lighting in the car park, he probably wouldn’t have noticed that there was someone there.
>The most disconcerting part of it all was the peculiar safety helmet worn above the neck. In contrast to the pure blackness below, the helmet’s shape and pattern melded together into a sense of artistry. Even so, it didn’t clash especially strongly with the black bodysuit.
>The visor of the helmet was pitch black, like the tinted windows on high-end cars: the only thing that could be seen was the curved flickering of florescent lighting, and nothing could be made of the expression underneath.
>The only thing conveyed by shadow was silence, almost like it wasn’t alive. The young man’s expression twisted further, fear and hatred warring for dominance on his face.
>“I… I-I-I-I-I… I don’t remember pissing off a Terminator!”
>Normally, this might’ve been a joke, but at this exact moment in time, the young man wasn’t in the slightest mood to crack jokes.
>“S… S… Say something! Who are you? What the fuck are you?”
>For the young man, the existence of the shadow was indeed something he couldn’t comprehend. They were only doing their usual routine of meeting up in the underground car park, doing simple ‘work’ then disbanding. The job was the same, delivering the ‘goods’ to the client then going to get new ‘goods’. It was just that, exactly the same as usual. Where did they go wrong? Just what did they do to summon this kind of a monster---?
evidently any HS student could write a light novel, why aren't you taking that sweet easy cash?

Was Dickens, one of the most famous english writers, an anti-semitic also a racist, like many of his books show up?
Almost all of them, has some villains which are jewish, or some african heritage.
Poe as well is described as racist in his book - The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, other clue which sustained this kind of theory is about the both were against the freemason.
An example from Oliver Twist villain: The first 38 chapters of the book refer to Fagin by his racial and religious origin 257 times, calling him "the Jew", with just 42 uses of "Fagin" or "the old man".
The Poe book, at the end of book, in his last chapters, the main character are lost in an island of cannibals sadic and wild - and all they are described with dark skins.
I really will like to see some thoughts/opinions
