Higher Ground (Harry Styles)

Melanie knew what would happen if she said yes, but she didn't care. She didn't want to die, not yet, but she had no choice. She had to save him. He still had the chance at normal life. So she did what she thought she had to. Made a deal with a demon. She knew it was wrong, but she thought she would get ten years. She didn't. Melanie was raised in a family of hunters. Yes, supernatural hunters. She's killed everything from ghosts to ghouls, vampires to werewolves, even some shape shifters. But what she killed the most was demons. When she met up with that crossroads demon she knew exactly what she was getting herself into, but it was all for him. Jacob. Her little brother. He was 13 at the time, and dying. He was shot. It was her life for his. A done deal, it didn't need thought. But now Melanie's back from Hell and she has no idea how. Taken into care by a generous boy band, Melanie has to figure out why she was brought back 3 years later and it won't be easy.


2. Chapter 1 "Back From The Dead"

"Hello? Hello? Are you okay? What happened?"

"Is she... dead?"

"She's breathing."

"Do you think she was hit?"

"She doesn't have any scratches."

"Lou, we should call the police."

"And say what, we just... found her? No."

"So, what?"

Voices. All these voices, bouncing through my ears. What's going on? Am I . . . alive? Is that possible?

I squirm, my body feels as stiff as a rock. Both voices went silent. What's going on?

"Lou. Lou. What are we going to do?" A panicked voice asks. 


It's quiet a moment. It's dark. My eyes are closed. I flinch at a sudden light, causing my eyelids to turn a bright orange-red color. It quickly fades, and my eyes adjust back to the darkness, little flecks of light still bouncing in my eyes. 

"Hello? Are you awake? Do we need to call an ambulance?" A voice asks frantically. I shake my head, not opening my eyes. I feel better than I have in a long time. A very long time. What year is it? How long have I been . . . dead? In Hell?

"Where . . . am I?" I ask in a low voice, still keeping my eyes closed, tighter than before. 

"Maple Road." A different voice answers, a deeper, more husky one. Almost like the crossroads demon... but kinder. 

"Where?" I ask again. 

"London, England." He says, concerned. London? What am I doing in London?

"What . . . year?" 


My eyes shoot open and I look around. 2013? That's impossible. I died in 2010. Why would I be back three years later?

I look at the two boys with hateful eyes. Who is dumb enough to bring me back? These boys can't be human. 

"Who are you?" I spit out, silently searching my pockets for weapons. It's too dark for them to notice. I cup my hands around two items. One smooth and hard like a flask... holy water. Holy water burns demons. And... a gun. That wouldn't to much good if they weren't human. 

"I'm Louis and this is Harry. We aren't going to hurt you." He speaks, softly and sincerely. I stand there a moment, processing. He's lying.

I open the flask and splash holy water on them both, but nothing happens. Not demons. Ghosts? No, they wouldn't be ghosts. What is going on?

"Did you just pour water on us?" The one with the deeper voice, Harry, asks.

"What are you?"

"We just told you-"

"No. I'm supposed to be dead. I died three years ago. Now tell me what the hell you are and why I'm alive again." I yell, my voice loud and angry. They stay silent. 

"I-" One starts, but doesn't finish. Am I overreacting? Are they... humans? Harmless little humans? I must seem like a freak. 

Then, I think about something that never crossed my mind. 

"Jacob." I say aloud. "My brother, where is he?"

Both are silent again. "Why don't you come back to my house with us?" The other one, Louis, says. 

"Are you crazy? Bringing a psycho home?" Harry whispers, even though I can hear him. 

"Eh-hem." I clear my throat, reminding him of my presence. 

They argue for a while and finally agree to let me go back. I go anyway, despite what they could be, they seem harmless to me. Besides, I need to be somewhere to figure this out. This is going to be a long night...
