2. Chapter 1 Esmerelda Durand
"Life is never what it seems, and every man must meet his destiny."
Opening my eyes I lift up my head and look around the unfamiliar dark room with the creeping feeling that i'm being watched spreading through out my body, sighing with relief when I don't see anyone I lay my head back down onto the pillow and close my eye's when suddenly I feel something tearing through my skin, I wanted to scream but no sound made it's way out, With sudden panic spreading through my body I try sitting up but my body won't move , A deep feeling of fear plants it's self in my stomach. Looking up I spot a man just inches away with a satisfied smile on his face. "You Shouldn't of messed with stuff you don't know about Mr. Cart-well." The man sneered, trying to focus on the man through the pain I could make out his haunting pitch black eye's, He was well built, Built enough to make even hulk himself feel intimidated and overpowered. He had to be at least 6'2, Looking for what caused my injury my eye's go to his hands. Opening my eye's wide with fear at the sight of his unnatural dagger like nails that are covered with what must be my blood."I can smell your fear from here." The man said moving his face close to my ear. "You were warned once." The man whispered. "You should of listened." Without giving it a sudden thought the man pushed his dagger like nail into my throat piercing the skin. "I wish I could say i'm sorry to have to do this." He said pausing. "But i'm not." He laughed while slitting my throat, My eyelid's getting heavy I look at the man who was smiling while wiping the blood of his nails with his tongue. "Good bye Mr. Cart-well." Is the last thing I hear as darkness consumes the room.
Jerking awake I let out a bloodcurdling scream while wrapping my hands around my neck as a gut wrenching pain makes it's way though my body. Throwing off my blanket I crawl off my bed with my hand's still tightly around my neck and make my way to the corner of the bedroom so I can examine what's going on without worrying about someone creeping up on me from behind, Looking around and making sure there is no threat I let out a sight when suddenly my bedroom door slams open and someones coming towards me, Without thinking I close my eyes and start screaming again while putting my arm in front of my face for protection. "Esmeralda what's wrong!" My dad exclaims concerned. "It's me, dad, Esmeralda it's alright!" He says' reassuringly while holding my face in his hands, opening my eye's I see my dad's concerned face. "Th- There was a man." I stuttered still flustered with what was happening, My dad quickly gets up and turn's on the light so he can look around the room. "There's no one in here." He states giving me a reassuring look, still feeling pain I look tighten my hand around my neck when suddenly I see blood leaking under my hand and down the front of my shirt "Bl-Blood." I whisper as I lift up my hand revealing a deep gash about 3 inches long. "What happened!" My dad shouted as he took of his shirt and wrapped it around the gash. "I don't know." I whispered my body going limp as the room was consumed darkness. "Dad, find Mr. Cart-well." Was the last thing I said before i was engulfed by the darkness.
