Chapter 1 - It All Begins

“Good morning sir” a gentleman greeted as he entered the mayor’s office ,which was a large room in the city hall with brown wooden walls and an even darker wooden floor with a big desk in the middle of the room and a large window behind it that overlooked the town’s square, many pictures of both the town and the mayor were covering the walls along with certificates carrying the mayor’s name, the mayor who was watching the town from the window smiled at the sight of the gentle and quickly replied “well hello there dear friend, what an amazing surprise, oh go ahead take a seat.”

The man smiled back and sat down in front of the mayor’s desk and not a few seconds later the mayor joined him on the other side of the desk.

“Well, I was expecting your visit later on during the festival” the mayor stated but it was more like a question and the gentle man noticed that as he soon replied “well I didn’t want to talk business during a celebration… festivals after all are about having fun aren’t they?” the man chuckled and the mayor understood him as he chuckled as well.

“If you put it so … after all money, business and fun what’s the difference, right? as long as our pockets are full, everything is running smoothly, no questions asked and the people are happy, nothing else matters” the mayor stated with a smirk

The man smirked too as he nodded “you know, that what I like about you good friend, you know exactly how to think.”

“Well I have learned from the best there is” the mayor replied signaling to the man in front of him and they both chuckled once more.

“Indeed you did” the man said in between chuckles .However he suddenly dropped the smirk, turned serious and stood up from his seat, making his was towards the window by which the mayor was standing earlier “but like I said there is a reason for me coming earlier than expected” the man stated as he stared out the window.

“What’s that?”

“What are we going to do about that little fellow who tends to stick his little nose where it’s unwanted?” the man asked turning to mayor with the serious expression still on “we don’t want any unwanted attention now, do us Johann?”

“Oh dear friend…” the mayor smiled as he stood up from his seat making his way towards his friend and patting his shoulder “... He was already taken care of”.

“Well that’s one brilliant piece of news there, one that is worth celebrating” the man grinned as he said so.


At the same time a few blocks away Leo a young man in his late twenties with short black hair and forest green eyes entered a small cafe called ‘white’s’ ,as soon as he was inside he could smell the refreshing smell of coffee and breakfast ,people all over the town knew that this was the best place to go to for a proper breakfast or to simply spend some free time ,As for Leo this was more like a second home, ever since he was a young boy he used to spend most of his time here thinking, finishing some work or just picking up something to drink or eat , no matter what it was , if Leo wasn’t at the hospital or at home you would always find him here.

It didn’t take him much effort to find a Table in the far end of the Cafe by a large window , seeing as the place was still partly empty as it was still early, so he took off his jacket and slid in the seat ‘this place has hardly changed’ he thought to himself as he looked around him seeing the kitchen and the bar across from him and the tables scattered everywhere , a police man was sitting by the bar having a cup of coffee and reading a newspaper and some teenagers sitting on a nearby table chatting and laughing , a woman sitting with her two kids on the next table enjoying a nice hot breakfast , but soon enough his thoughts traveled from the place to another world thinking about all the events that took place earlier , as he dozed off he didn’t feel the time flying and the waiter that approached him asking for his order, who repeated her words trying to catch his attention.

“Mr. Daniels, is something wrong?”

He snapped out of his thoughts and turned to her.

“Sorry, I didn’t see you there, I was just a bit lost in thoughts, you were saying?” he replied with a sweet smile, he spent most his life her so it was no surprise to him that all the staff knew his name.

“It’s no problem, sir, I was asking about your order” she nodded.

“A coffee will be fine.”

“One coffee right away sir” she repeated as she turned around hiding to the bar, Leo sighed as he went back to his thoughts…


“Hello there mate” it was later on that day, when Leo was once again snapped out of his thoughts but this time by his dearest and oldest friend Edwin, a brunette , brown eyed tall fellow with whom he had grown up, he said that as he sat across from him.

“What’s with the frown?” he asked him.

“They did it…” Leo stated, but Edwin seemed confused

“Did what?”

“I was fired this morning.”

“What? They couldn’t have…” Edwin seemed surprised by this news and understood why his friend was in such a state “…did you tell her?”

Leo shook his head knowing exactly who his friend meant.

“I have been here all morning haven’t told her yet, what am I even suppose to tell her” he looked down.

“It will all be alright mate, if anyone can come back from this it’s you” Edwin said as he patted him on the shoulder.

“I hope so” Leo sighed, then stood up taking his jacket ready to put it on when Edwin stopped him “where do you think you are going, mate?”

“Home, where else?!” Leo replied as it was the most obvious thing in the world.

“Why the night is still young, mate and the festival hasn’t even started yet?”

“I don’t feel like celebrating , beside I don’t even get the whole point of this festival… as a matter of fact I believe that this town has more festivals than it’s suppose to have.”

“Come on mate not this again, give the people a break we all need some fun every once and a while, besides no one gets hurt so why not?” Edwin exclaimed as he raised his hands in defense, Leo opened his mouth to reply but was cut off by a scream from behind him and when he turned around his eyes widened as he saw a man on the ground yelling in pain as blood was flowing out of his mouth…

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot.
