The Sun

When I was born it was raining, when it was the first day of school it was raining, all my life, it was raining. Today, it’s still raining, and not just nice summer rain, pouring sloppy winter rain that feels like acid every time it touches your skin. I hear that there was a time before rain, a time of happiness and joy. I hear rumors that there was a ball of light that came up every morning and shined on all people, good or bad. This ball of light gave people hope that everything will be alright, I wish we still had that. Some, like my parents, long for the ball of light so badly they do stupid things, for instance, name your only child after this ball of light that existed about a million years ago. My parents thought that if they would give their daughter such a name the ball of light will just magically appear. Well here I am, at the age of 13, with the name of Sun, but not attracting any balls of light, only trouble.“Good luck at school!” My mom called from the kitchen like she does every morning, and I nod like I do every morning, and my dad is waiting to drive me to school, like he does every morning, and of course it’s raining, like it is every morning. I roll my eyes, nothing here ever changes, and I bet it never will. As I get into the car I look at the sky and sigh. It says in books that earth used to be such a wonderful place, what happened? Rumors are that pollution scared the sun away but I don’t believe that. Others believe that the sun just got bored of being part of the Milky Way and left to join another galaxy, I also don’t believe that. I believe the sun is still here but is disappointed with us. I believe the sun is just waiting for change, just like me.

 School is awful, as usual. To many people talk and the school work makes my head explode.Suddenly, I zoom out for about an hour or two until I hear my name,“Sun,” suddenly I’m alert “what?” I asked to the boy who called my name, but he just stared. “What?” I asked again louder. This time the boy pointed and said again “Sun.” I looked at where he was pointing. The rain was gone and it was bright outside. The brightness made it to our window guiding us to the ball of light. When the whole class ran outside. The fogginess of the sky was gone replaced by a soft blue color, and the rain was gone replaced by the ball of light, the Sun.

 All of us stare and begin to laugh, the Sun has finally come back to us. Soon we are all dancing enjoying the warmth on our skin, but suddenly the warmth left me behind and the sky was once again foggy and gray. Many groaned and went back inside but I just stood looking at the sky and smiling. The Sun never left, it’s always been there it was just hiding it’s face from us. It chose this very moment to start giving us hope, giving us permission to begin our search of finding it again.


The Killer sequel Violets tale

My alarm clock rang and I groaned.Another day of training.”Violet!”my dad,Ben called in a nasty voice”get down here you’re late for training” I groaned again immortal dads,can’t live with them,can’t argue with them.Ever since I got adopted by Ben all I heard him talk about is training,so therefore all I do is train.The only thing my dad likes more than training is to play poker and we already lost about $900 because of his games.

  Ben is really crazy about training,and it’s not about sports.This might sound crazy but my dad,Ben is a vampire and he adopted me when I was just a baby.Ever since he has been training me to become a villain.He has been giving me all sorts of crazy powers,and even though I enjoy getting them,I don’t want to be a villain, and no matter how many times I tell Ben,he never seems to listen.

    I got dressed and went to our basement,where Ben literally forces me to train,he says if I don’t he will burn me, the only way to kill any magical creature.When I came down to the basement I saw Ben and sighed “How did you end up like this?”I whispered to myself.”Today,”Ben began”It’s time to get your new power up.”He said with his messed up smile and held out his hand. I sighed and slipped my hand into his, this is the way he transmits power to me. A few seconds later my chest began to burn, and then so did my throat and stomach.” What…Kind…Of…Power…Is…This?”I gasped in pain,”don’t worry the burning will go away any minute now,but to answer your question I gave you the power to create fire,now you can burn any creature that stands in your path when your fully trained.” He said with the same smile.”How many times do I have to tell you,no matter how many powers you give me I will not turn evil!”Then out of nowhere a fireball flew out of my chest straight at Ben.”Ben!”I cried in fear,but it was too late,the fireball hit him straight in the stomach and he disappeared .I gasped,why didn’t he run away? He could have,vampires have the ability to run at the speed of light.I also could have sworn I heard him say “finally,” just before the fireball hit him.Just then green smoke came out of midair and started to race towards me saying the words “The vampire you killed made one last wish,before the fireball hit him,and you are the one who will complete this wish because you are the one who took him to his grave.” I screamed and ran,luckily Ben gave me the power of speed.The green smoke kept repeating those words and chasing me.I thought that I was outrunning the green smoke until I ran into a corner of the house and got myself trapped.The smoke reached me instantly and the second it touched me I felt pain like I’ve never felt before.When I saw my skin changing color I crawled to the nearest mirror with the last of my strength.The reflection in the mirror of me,was not me at all. My tan skin turned pale,and my dark golden hair turned blonde.Then,I felt pain again,but didn’t dare let go of the mirror.Slowly, hazel eyes turned icy blue and all the warmth drained out of me.I felt myself transforming into a monster that Ben always wanted me to be,with all my my anger and jealousy overpowering my will to stay good.When the transformation was complete there was no more good left in me,I was a monster, I was a Vampire.

The Killer

“Hayley!” was the last word I heard from my mom on the day of the accident.

                  It happened so quickly, it was just a sunny fourth of July, perfect, as usual. My mom and I were competing who can stuff the most ice-cream in each other’s face,we were both laughing and rolling in the grass, then the sky turned black and dark purple,”What’s that?”I asked.”Probably just a storm” my mom said with a shrug,”let’s get to the car where it’s safe.” So we ran to the car,but I heard my mom yell ”Hayley!” I turned around and saw my mom stuck in a puddle of mud. I was about to run and help her but the lighting got there before I did and struck her, and just like that she was gone.”Mom?”I whispered with tears in my eyes.The storm was gone, and the fireworks went off.

2 weeks later

“No, I’m not going!”I yelled trying to fight off the grab of the women who owned the adoption center.The the women let go and put her hand on my shoulder gently,”sweety, you’re only 12 years old, you can’t live by yourself” I sniffed and took the woman’s hand, I knew I couldn’t live by myself,however I also knew, no one can replace my mother.As I walked into the adoption center I noticed how everything was the same.Inside the walls were all white and in the cafeteria everyone ate the same exact food.Everytime my tourguid lead me to a new room everyone stared at me like I was an alien that had one eye and five arms.

   When I entered the library the same thing happened as it did in all the other rooms, I came in and people stared.But in this room there was a girl with icy blue eyes that stared at me, like she was angry.She kept staring ,and staring making me feel very uncomfortable, but not because of her, I started to feel uncomfortable with myself.Finally she let go of my eyes when my tour guide told me it’s time to see my next room,but even if she wasn’t staring at me any more her icy eyes kept haunting me.

  Finally, it was time for me to move in to my dorm.Even before I opened the door I could hear a girl yelling “She shoots…SHE SCORES!!!” I rolled my eyes”great,I’m going to have one of those roommates” I thought to myself with a sigh.When I entered the room a short girl with straight black hair and sea green eyes was waiting for me.”Hi, I’m Alice”she said cheerfully,”you must be the new girl, Hayley.”I waved and smiled at her shyly.”So how did you end up here?”Alice asked “My mom died in a storm accident” I said in a whisper.”Lucky” Alice said catching me by surprise. “Excuse me?” I asked in disbelief,”I said lucky” Alice repeated without any other information. We sat in silence for a few minutes just staring at each other.While Alice stared at me, I tried to see if her stare was similar to the girl with the blue eyes but there were no similarities.Alice’s eyes were calm and relaxed,they were warm and welcoming.The other girl’s eyes were icy and cold,she looked at me like she wanted something from me,something that I didn’t have. Suddenly an alarming bell broke my thoughts,”What’s that?” I asked Alice,”time for the free part of the day, I’m going to play soccer with some of my friends you want to come?””No, I’m just going to unpack.”I answered.Alice just shrugged and ran out of the room.When she was gone I sighed to myself, I don’t belong here, I belong with my mom.I sat for a few more moments. then got up and started unpacking.

“So, your mom died in a storm” A nasty voice startled me. I quickly turned to see who it was.To my suprise it was the girl with the blue eyes”How did you get in here”I asked in a shakey voice,”The door was locked.” The girl laughed without humor”There’s more than one way to get into a room”Now tell me how did you feel when your mom disappeared, you know when the purple clouds went away,the exact moment after your mom,you know,died,””how did you…””Some people see better than others, some people hear better,some people are faster”She ran to the Alice’s desk at the speed of light and grabbed a pair of scissors “and some people,” she continued,”were justed there”Then her blue eyes turned the same shade of purple as the storm.”You,”I said in a tone that sounded more angry than scared”you killed my mom,the only human in this whole world that I cared,you killed,but why?””don’t you see?”she laughed again”It’s my job to take away what every person loves the most.” I looked at her in horror “What are you?” “I thought you would know by now,” she said with an evil smile”I am the daughter of a vampire who was good then, he wanted a child,so he adopted me.He trained to be magical,he trained me to control all the elements of the earth,he thought that I would use my new found power for good” she laughed”poor dad,I ended up burning him at the end”She said with a shrug “What why?”I asked”You are much more clueless than I thought,If you burn a vampire,you take the powers of the one who died.””but why do you want to kill me,I’m not a vampire,” “Don’t you see”She yelled”when I saw you at the park I saw you having the life that I wanted,that I should have had!”she turned away”all my father did was train me to be a hero that I didn’t want to be,I wanted what you had,seeing you made me so angry so, I destroyed it”She looked at me with her hard eyes, making a shiver go down my spine “Every person here has lost someone they have loved because of me” then she turned back to me”For instance: your roommate,Alice, her mother and father were astronauts that were assigned to go on a mission , they didn’t want to leave her but she made them go because she knew that exploring space made them happy,so they got sucked into a black hole”I gasped “how can you do such horrible things to people?””Because,they all had something I wanted.””Now I just want to say good bye” She said holding up the pair of scissors that she took before”you know too much”she said holding up the scissors with a smile.¨Wait!¨I stopped her in a calm voice,”first tell me what your name is.””My name is Violet” She said then stabbed the scissors into my heart.

      I woke up in the middle of a empty space that was all white,I thought about what happened just a few minutes ago wasn’t I dead? “Haley?” I heard from the distance.I turned and saw my mother standing next to me, she looked exactly the same as the last I saw her but now she was more perfect in a way I couldn’t explain “Where are we?”I asked her”We are in the underworld”she answered,”I’ve been expecting you”she said with a smile”I ran to her and gave her a big huge”I’ve missed you.”I whispered to her.She looked at me with tears in her eyes and said”I never left your side”

        So even though I’m dead,I’m with my mother.Thank you Violet.
