Coming from the Edgewood forest, you can hear a young and innocent voice whispering,"Here in the forest, dark and deep, I offer you eternal sleep."This scared many people away for years. This all started when Ava Jenning suddenly vanished fifteen years prior. The mystery of the disappearance of Ava was never investigated.
One cool crisp September afternoon Ava went on a walk through the thick forest. She always used to feel as if she was being watched, but she over the years,learned to ignore it. This time tho, it was just different, almost like someone was was right next to her. So she suddenly stopped and said, "Hello? Who´s there?¨
Then out of nowhere, a boy appeared. He was tall with dark hair, and the blackest of blue eyes. The boy slowly approached her. He said, in a sweet low voice,"I can help you.¨ Frightened, Ava said ¨Who are you?¨ The boy replied, ¨Oh I'm sorry my name is Blair. Your name is Ava, right?¨ Slightly freaked out, she said ¨How do you know my name?¨ While looking down at his feet and slowly looked up at her, he replied, ¨Oh Ava I know all about you. I know how people make you feel worthless, I see the pain it inflicts on you, the things it makes you do to yourself. But like I said, I can help you, I can make the pain go away. I´ve been watching you for years. Please let me help you.¨
No almost in tears, Ava asked, ¨Why me?¨ Blair replied, ¨Ava, I once was like you, I felt hopeless, worthless, and scared, but I got help. Let me give you that help.¨
Ava felt some comfort within Blair. He said ¨But if you agree to let me help, you have to follow my rules: you can not touch me until it's over, you must do as I say, you may not ask questions, and you have to meet me at noon every day.¨ Ava agreed. She agreed not only because she was tired, but the fact the pain had become unbearable.
Throughout the next few months, Ava's feeling had grown worse. The only thing that could calm her down was Blair, yet they weren't even allowed to hug.
Blair came up with a plan. His plan was was simple, Ava should run away and stay with him in the forest with him. When Ava heard the plan she was willing to do it. All she asked was,¨What do I pack ?¨ Blair replied,¨You won't need anything.¨
The next day Ava arrived earlier than normal, but Blair surprisingly was still there waiting for her. Ava approached him slowly, and said, ¨okay I'm here, I´ve ran away, now what?¨ Blair started walking down a narrow path to a well light cave with a big bed. Blair laid on the bed and motioned for Ava to lay down also. Now just inches apart , Blair then whispered,¨ Now Ava, are you ready to leave the pain?¨ Without hesitation Ava replied,¨ Yes.¨ Blair then placed a pill and a bottle of some strange liquid on the bed and told her to drink it.
She put the pill in her mouth and drank the drink and drifted into her forever sleep...
