Life of a SuperNatural: Book 1a Amy's Story

Dear Diary,

Today I was walking to Starbucks for some coffee, to keep me awake for the day. I never seem to get any sleep anymore. The same could be said for Mark, we're nearly inseparable these days. Just watching out for each other. Watching children's movies all night long reminds me of when we were innocent without a care in the world. Spoiled rotten. I was doing fine, seriously, I didn't think of her at all that morning. Until an old classmate came up to me. Honestly, the only thing I remember of the incident was her words. "Amy I heard what happened I'm so sorry for your loss". And just like that all the work I put into stopping the pain was diminished...

Everything changes when Amy's mother dies and her 'change' happens. In search of answers, what secrets will Amy unearth? What side will she fight for? Who is this new girl, Felicity? Why is she stalking her?

Dear Diary,

Amy's been so upset since the incident. She barely talks or eats anymore. She's slowly withering away and I don't know what I can do to help. I want to fix this. Protect her from the pain she is feeling, but I know that I can't fix...death. 

She's sporadic, one day she's barely eating, masking her pain with false smiles, pretending she is alright. The other days she will work out until she collapses, or eat anything or everything like she's barely tasting the food. In all these varying degrees she always makes sure she gives Ethan and Sarah the attention they need. Becoming even more fiercely protective of them as the days go by. Sometimes I think they are her only tethers to reality. Like she's only living for them now.

 She didn't even notice that Grandma went back to Korea a week later after the funeral, and she loves my Grandma and I think it's only because her grandparents want nothing to do with her because her mother decided to have her and quit college. They still didn't want anything to do with her even after her mother died they wouldn't even show up for the funeral.

With Mom, it was always easy to help her. Someone was hurting her and I wanted to make them stop. That was it. It didn't matter who it was, even if it was my father. Like the day I drove that abusive prick out of both our lives. That's the day I believe I first transformed. Then everything from that moment on it's all blackness. The day that abusive prick got out of both our lives. I can transform now into a wolf if I really concentrate.

My Mom said as I was partially turning into the wolf I said to him that, "You won't hurt her anymore. Leave---" before my voice turned to growls. I don't really remember the first time I transformed, but that's how Mom remembers that day. I don't really remember anything, but wanting to protect my Mom and feeling powerless to do it.

I've noticed my strength has been steadily increasing since that day. Mom said something similar happened to her older brother, he started developing abilities and protected her from dying in a car crash but only by exchanging his life to ensure she lived. She doesn't know what to do about my abilities and covers for any abnormal things that happen in school or doctors say shouldn't be like that. She just asks me to keep my head down. I wished I knew what I was, that I could control my abilities, maybe that could have helped somehow for Amy.

I was able to protect my Mom and now I want to protect Amy, but I can't bring the dead back to life. That night I was playing a stupid game. Amy came rushing in and I thought she was going to join me. All I heard was rustling and Amy waking up Ethan who wasn't allowed downstairs because it was an "adult" party. So Amy and I stayed upstairs keeping him company and playing games. He got tired and crawled into Amy's bed and she tucks him and continued playing with him. All I hear is her yelling at me that we have to leave. That's when I noticed the smoke that was slowly sneaking into the room. Like a burglar in the night. I didn't think I just grabbed my jacket and grabbed a letter her mother gave her. She said they were gonna go over it together.

As we left her smokey house together. Trying to find a safe passageway because the flames we starting to rise to our hips. Amy was keeping Ethan out harm's way. Strangely she didn't seem to feel the pain from the flames or have any burns on her. Did she have abilities like me? She was the one that found a safe passageway for us all to leave the house. It was like the flames quieted or something when she was around. Like it was listening to her wishes and following it. I know it sounds crazy alright, but I  can transform into a wolf if I focus. Not even Amy knows that about me. We waited outside while Amy called the police. I took Ethan from her and stood beside my Mom and Grandma. I watched as Amy ran up and asked every guest if the saw her mother. I saw her face drop with each response she got as worry seemed to etch itself into her normally smiling face. Then I watched her crumble when the firemen and police officers confirmed what she already knew was true.

That day I watched Amy's whole world burn to the ground. That was only a month ago. Her birthday came and with it, Sarah joined us. I spend all of my days trying to be there for her and helping her take care of Ethan and Sarah. Somedays I see her hold onto the letter he mother gave her as if she was going to read it. But she never did. These days if she's lucky she will sleep without dreams or have terrible nightmares of watching her mother die. I spend all my time trying to figure out how to put humpty dumpty back together again.

Fuck, I'm so angry. Everything used to be different, we were innocent until Amy's mother died. Amy wasn't broken. Even though Amy's relationship with her mother was strained to say the least. She was always cautious of her like her mother was a stranger she didn't know how to interact with. From what she told of the way her mother used to be that must have been exactly how it felt. She's lost her mother and she doesn't have a dad. Her grandparents want nothing to do with her. She's all on her own, taking care of 2 kids. Three if you include herself. I'm just happy that my Mom allowed Amy to stay with us. Now I'm up all night watching Disney films because Amy can't fall asleep, too scared that she will have nightmares. When she finally does I pick her up, and tuck her into my bed and sleep on the couch.
