I was very suspicious after my mother smiled and said “I WUV U!” She also had a big coffin shaped box behind her. She took a sword out from behind her. I walked backwards slowly towards the door. My mom just laughed an evil laugh. “I’m not your mother foolish child,” she said in a demonic voice. I felt something in my hand. I dared not look and take my eyes off the copy mom. I heard a whisper inside my head use it. I had never heard the voice before but yet it sounded familiar. The world seemed to slow. The thing in my hand grew too be a blade. I stabbed outward at the thing that I had thought to be my mother only moments ago.

”NO!” The thing shrieked as the blade hit its target the things heart. I watched the thing struggling on the floor. It was hissing at me suddenly I took the blade out and stabbed it in the head no doubt in my mind that it was not my mother. I held the blade in front of me pointed at the thing. I used my other hand to open the door behind me a backed out turned and ran as far as I know for my life.

I wondered why the people weren’t staring at me since I was running with a blade. But I looked down and saw that it was no longer a blade but instead a ring with a dagger shaped carving. I look back up only to find myself running into a flustered red headed boy. I ran into him we both fell to the ground the ring fell close by. “Damn you” he muttered. Then he looked up and blushed bright red. I’m sorry I didn’t mean you I mean I did but I uh err…” His words were quick and nervous like as he stood up. “Oh is this your ring?” the boy said while picking it up and examining it. “Oh yes it is I must’ve dropped it I’m sorry for running into you but I really need to be going now it was nice talking to you….” “Charles Pierce” he said. “Vespara Knightly.” I replied and took the ring from his outstretched hand. I looked to see his face and gasped. The color of his eyes was yellow but it seemed like his eyes held flames the color seemed to be fire moving within. He smiled “is something wrong?” “N-no but umm I really need to be going.”

I ran to my friend’s house “Your not going to believe me but I think a demon just attacked me.” I said once in her room out of hearing distance from her parents. “I feared this day would come,” my friend said sadly. “What?!” I asked confused she couldn’t have been there or seen could she? I looked into her blue eyes that had always seemed magical and saw what looked like water running within them. “ Veronica are you ok? What do you mean you feared this day would come?" Veronica smiles slightly as I stare at her wondering how she could smile when I have just been attacked. Veronica says in her flowing soothing voice “You are finally ready to be trained in the ways of our people.” Huh? Great I’m not the only psycho person. I should play along for now unless its not a joke…no I cant think like that its crazy talk...or is it?


 

“Our people?” I say trying to think if Charles Pierce has anything to do with this. Veronica smiled once again “we need to have a council meeting.” Ok…interesting a council meeting with who I wonder. “Ok I guess…where will it be and can I stay over tonight my mom is er…not at home.”

 

Veronica nods and walks to the door opening it. “Vespara is staying over tonight and we wont be back for a few hours!” Veronica called out to her parents. Her mom shouts back “ Ok Hun be safe and be home for supper.” Veronica comes back to me and tugs at my arm. I follow her outside and see Charles standing leaning against the Iron Gate. “Council?” he says looking straight at me. I nod not even knowing what council is. He flashes a grin that could warm even the coldest hearts. Veronica rolls her eyes and says ”don’t be fooled he would steal your money just as soon as smile like that.” Charles grins even broader then before “one time and I’m punished for life” he says chuckling.



“Shouldn’t we be getting to this council thing?” I say wanting to know more even though it might just be a joke. “Yes we should,” Veronica says and then starts to walk towards Charles “the long way or the short?” she says simply as I start to walk towards them. Charles grins devilishly “we don’t want to scare her to much before she meets Him, lets go with the long” he grins at me and wraps his arm around me. “ What the heck do you think your doing?” I say angrily. “Why escorting a beautiful lady too the council of course, ma’am. “ Charles says looking hurt. I say under my breath “stupid boy.”  Still wondering about the demon type thing that attacked me I follow along.  Maybe I was on one of those hidden camera shows, Charles might even be an actor, at least I hope this is a hidden camera show.

 
 

His wings were like torn leather only they were dripping dark red liquid. His face hidden in shadows or were they dark spirits? Either way it was his job and his job alone to carry out these dreadful tasks. He looked at the girl dying in an alleyway, sighing he stepped forward as her spirit climbed out of her body. 

“No I can’t be dead I’m too young no I never told them tha-…w-what are you help me please!” Always in denial he thought to himself as the girl screamed for what seemed like days… that was really hours. “We must be on our way Ma’am” She stood there scared and trembling. “I must leave without saying goodbye?” Always the worst part he thought to himself.

 “A strict schedule ma’am we need to go now let’s go please, I don’t like forcing people.” Her eyes widened and she nodded tears still running out of her pale blue eyes now rimmed red. “Take my hand please,” he said as he put his hand out, black glove covering it. She hesitated looking at his black glove seeing only bones where the glove should be. 

“Time is nearly up Ma’am you have taken your time and I was nice…but my patience is wearing thin” She gulped and took his hand feeling an instant jolt the world blurred for a second and then she saw his true form. His eyes were fiery pits and he was glowing a mixture of colors almost see through, yet if you looked at it for to long you started to see something staring back at you. He very slowly faded back to his form that she had seen him in before but the shock on her face was clear. “Yes I know it is a quite…disturbing sight to some, But it is still rude to stare ma’am now lets go” He says waving his hand towards the ground. 

A pit opened up well it seemed to be a pit but there were stairs leading downwards she looked at them as if they were the stairs to hell itself though he knew this not to quite be true. He led her down the stairs and about halfway down she disappeared to wherever it is she was to go he didn’t deal with that area he just simply delivered them. He continued his path downward this was the last of the day.

He continued walking until he could hear the steps growing squeaky. He then turned and waved his hand in front of him and a burst of purple and green light exploded in front of his hand showing a dark red door. He opened the door and waved his hand again making the door go away. He hollered out “I’m home, dinner ready yet?” he took off his dark blue jacket and let his wings stretch out yawning. 

His daughter runs up too him nearly tripping on the black carpet. He grins and wraps her in a hug. “Hi daddy,” her voice drops down to a whisper “mommy was crying earlier she nearly went to see Him…” she glances around nervously with a hint of fear in her soft dark brown eyes. “Go on to your room I’ll come see you in a sec’, ok sweetie?” He says worried about his wife surely nothing could be that bad…he thinks to himself.

He lets her down, smiling at her though his thoughts still troubled; she looks at him scared and runs off.
