10. Chapter Ten

(Eight Years Earlier)


As it was, life had never been easy for James. Is it easy for anyone really? Still, James's life was comparatively a tough one.

His dad died in a car accident, killed by a drunk driver to be precise. So what does his mother do? Become a drunk, of course. And she was mean, meanness permeates her to her very bones. She has a wicked tongue and a temper to match it. In her eyes, James can't do anything right, no matter what he does, it displeases her.

At seventeen James found himself friendless, he had been bullied growing up. He dropped out of school a year prior.

While he was still in school, there was one girl he saw as different from the others. She was kind, but he never once tried to talk to her more than a 'hello' or 'good morning'. He loved her far more than anyone would think fathomable of a teenager but could never tell her. She was a year younger than him, and he had a crush on her for a year prior to dropping out of school. The first, and at that point, the only girl he had ever liked. On the other hand, she had barely noticed him. She never thought of him outside of their passing 'hellos'. She had come to the town two years prior to this summer.

But then, as of late, his luck with women changed. Cassie, a girl he barely knew in school had started to look at him differently. She'd pop up around him every so often and things took off from there. They had even been out on a few dates.

James had his lip and nose pierced recently. Of course, it sent his mother into a fit of shouting, but he didn't care.

He was "different" from everyone else, despite what others, including his mother, thought, he loved being "different". In fact, relished it.

But, very soon, by the end of this summer, James's life will never be the same.


James sat on his bed with his music blaring in his ears, his cat, Raven, purred loudly, although he couldn't hear it. Raven was a very beautiful, yet dark, cat. Almost entirely covered by shiny black fur, only his toes were a milk white. James mother didn't want him to have a cat, truth be told she didn't want him to have anything that made him happy.

It was nearly midnight, James mind raced as he thought of what he had planned for that night.

He jumped off of the bed, grabbed his jacket and made his way from his room to the stairs. He left quietly, as not to wake his mother. 

He wasn't sure what exactly Cassie wanted him to meet her for, especially at such a late time. But, he knew better than to question her. There must be some reason behind her request.

He walked along the dark streets, his shoes hit the pavement loudly as he rushed forward. Water splashed on the bottom of his black jeans as his shoes hit the puddles left behind by the rain. Mud coated his shoes by the time he reached the abandoned Mill's farm, long ago it was left to rot by the owners, believing a curse was invoked on the land, the Mills left and never looked back.

What some people do when it comes to suspicion. 

Wolves cried out in a glorious union in the distance, their howls carried across the fields to James's ears. An owl's hoots accompanied the wolves warcries every so often. 

Again he wondered why Cassie had asked him to meet her here? This old, deserted farm. What could her possible motives be? A strong metal fence surrounded the property, he marched forward past the metal gate door, it creaked when he swung the gate door open. Whatever her reasons, James wanted to trust her. Despite only dating for a couple weeks, he thought surely she cared a little for him.

Old brittle twigs crunched beneath his feet. The moon pierced through a thick veil of clouds illuminating the ground in front of him. After stepping into a hole and nearly twisting his ankle, James took more caution in going forward.

Finally, he reached the front porch of the old farm home. After hesitating a moment, James climbed the creaking steps up to the old home. She must be inside, James's thinks.

At this moment he had no idea that he and Cassie weren't the only ones there.
