Charlotte Jones is stuck in a world where love is looked at as a disease. She is caught talking about becoming a Shadow with her friends Talia and Madi. Shadows believe in love, which most think is bad. The three friends must now escape without getting caught. If they are caught, they'll be given a choice. A world without love or death?


2. Parent's Death

I then pulled my dirty blonde, shoulder length, straight hair back into a high pony tail so its out of my face when I go to Teachings.

I hate Teachings. I hate it with a passion. All you learn is how to “obey” properly. You learn of the so called dangers of love. You learn of how you can go insane over trying to love when there really isn’t such thing as love. They talk about how love is a fairytale. They say a world with love is a world with danger and chaos. I don’t know if I believe that.

My mother and father would tell me that love is magical, and that love made happiness. They said love makes people smile and laugh. I’d like to believe them, but if that’s true why were they taken to the Shackles after they were caught loving each other. They were just holding hands at midnight by the lake when a Policer caught them. The Governs called for everyone, every man and woman, boy and girl, to go to the center of town. They brought my parents there. They gave a speech on how love made them crazy. They never seemed crazy to me. They said it drove them to insanity. They never seemed insane to me. They told everyone how love rotted the brain and made you sick. I didn’t believe a word they said. They then gave my parents the choice.

They said “a world without love or death?”

I ran up to them and I screamed! I screamed louder than I have ever screamed in my entire life! But then I hit the ground.

Before I blacked out completely I heard my mom say, “There is nothing in this world without love.”

I then blacked out to the sound of two loud bangs, and eight words that I repeat to myself every night.
