Lauren was having the dullest day of her life. She'd woken up, got dressed for school and her little brother spilled cereal all over her literature essay she'd spent two weeks working on.

Life couldn't get any worse.

Or so she thought.
Now, she has Death to contend with, just as she was going to get a nice coffee and a hot fresh do-nut.

There may be a sequel to this soon, so keep an eye out if you're interested! :)


6. Reaper says Hello

I heard thunder boom above my head, and saw through my tightly shut eyes the bright flash of lightning immediately after.

It felt as though I was suspended in air, like something had grabbed the back of my school top and was holding me, hanging in mid-air.

Slowly, I opened my eyes and looked down. Beneath me there was the most grotesque face I'd ever seen; a monster like no other, with bloodied razor-like teeth with rotted flash hanging from each jagged edge. It's eyes were pure black and it's skin was a dark rotten green, like you'd expect to see in a zombie film.

I screamed and staggered back, falling against something solid, before feeling gravity take effect. My eyes had closed instantly after seeing the horrific creature, but I slowly opened them as I felt a hand stroke over my hair, clutching me to someone.

I opened my eyes, and looked up.

I was lying on a boy around my age with midnight black hair, and bright hazel eyes. His skin was pale, but his cheeks were flushed with anger. He also had a deep mottled scar running down the left side of his face from the top of his forehead all the way down his neck.

'Stupid soul.' He said, angry as he pushed me off of him.

Somehow, we were miles away from the Desert Sea.

I stared up at the boy. He wore simple dark black jeans and a dark grey button up shirt with its cuffs folded up past his elbows. showing off his strong pale forearms.

I frowned.

'Are you... Reaper?' I asked. He froze, before turning, his mid length hair covering his scar.

'Hello Lauren.'
