Eternal and Sombre are best friends. Always have been, ever since Sombre moved into the neighbourhood. Sometimes, though, Eternal can't help but think that there is something strange about her best friend, something... inhuman. Sombre, on the other hand, only wants to be something more than friends. In a strange, twisted society, will either of them survive?


1. Abandoned Sweet Shop (Eternal)

Eternal's P.O.V


I entered the abandoned sweet shop, taking care to avoid rotting timbers. An unprotected lightbulb swung over my head, hardly illuminating the silent room. A fluffy white cat curled around my feet, and stared at me, her golden eyes unblinking. I knelt down to stroke her, when a voice called out.

"Hello there Eternal..."

I looked up to see a thin, small girl, standing on an old staircase. Her skin was an unheathy shade of white, making her look like a ghost. Her eyes were a very dark purple, almost black, and her dark blue hair was extremly messy. She was wearing a short, grey floaty dress and tall boots, with orange bandages tied around them.


"Hello there Sombre..." I replied, and started walking towards her.

Sombre and I had been friends ever since she walked into school one cold morning in October. I found her, standing in the main hall, staring at the stage. We were friends at first glance. We never fight, never argue, even though Sombre has a reputition to be a bully, she sticks with me, Eternal.

"Ready to get to work?" Sombre asked,and picked up the cat.


She turned her head, and headed up the stairs.

I followed.
