1. The Beginning and End

Badoom..Badoom...The only sound. Her heat beating,pounding against her chest like a butterfly flapping its wings violently. She gasped as she opened her beautiful blue eyes. She thought she felt a flicker of recognition about this place...no...

May 19th 1921;

'Wow' thought Alice as she took in her surroundings. Beautiful, bright birds singing sweetly, lush green grass and pretty wild flowers growing all around. The sun shone, making the smooth pebbles lying on the ground sparkle like twinkling stars in the night sky. She was sitting on a wooden bench at the end of the glorious green garden. Alice looked down at the dress she was wearing embroded with roses made of fabric and cotton. It was a purple colour, perfectly matching the silky hat perched on her head, over her smooth blonde hair. Muffled voices caught her attention and her eyes darted to the direction the voices were coming from. Then she saw her...the wicked old woman who had ruined her life so many times before.

 

Alice was 18 years old the first time this evil woman chose Alice's own sister as her victim.  It was a stormy day, grey clouds filling the sky and Alice was writing in her diary. Earth shaking, ear splitting bangs startled Alice and she sprung up from her seat to see what the strange sound was. And that was the first time she had witnessed the heartless and evil things this kind looking but vile old woman got up to...

The muffled voices continued and Alice's nerves calmed as she realised the old woman hadn't noticed her and was walking in the opposite direction. At least Alice was safe for a little while longer...

Yes, incase you were wondering, this old woman does have a name. It's Rose, Rose Goosley. Quite a pretty name come to think of it, however this woman does not have a pretty heart, nor a pretty bone in her body for that matter. She goes round day in and day out seeking the souls of beautiful girls to kill and use them to try and make herself beautiful using the special ingredient all of these beautiful girls had in their veins; immortalism.  The whole idea of immortality is having the gift of living forever, but Rose has a gift of her own, she can KILL immortals. But to be able to do that, she has to find the immortals first, and where could they be hiding?...

Alice discovered at a young age that she, as well as all of her family, had the special gift of being immortals, and many sleepless nights were spent by her worrying and wondering whether Rose would get hold of her. Every immortal knew about Rose, and they made sure they steered well clear of her at all times.

 

The bench Alice was sitting on creaked as someone sat on it and brought her back to her senses. Out of the corner of her eye she saw exactly who was sitting next to her on the bench, and she was transfixed to the spot..unable to move...It was 'her'...It was Rose.

Alice's first instinct was to run, so she did, but landed flat on her face as her legs turned stiff.weak...

"Oh dear...careful young lady" croaked Rose.

Alice tried to cover her face, but it was too late..

"my my..aren't you beautiful...I know who your kind my dear, I know what you are..."

Alice screamed as tears poured down her cheeks, there was no turning back now. She was trapped almost at deaths door and there was absolutely nothing she could do about it. She knew this only too well, as her sister, her aunt and her cousins had all been caught by Rose, and none of them had survived to tell the tale...

Rose dragged Alice up the winding stone staircases of her castle into a room filled with darkness.

"Goodbye my pretty" were the last words Alice ever heard...

Or that's what she thought... but here she is again, returned from the dead, however what she doesn't know is that all this will happen again, she doesn't even remember...
