Chapter 1 The Rooftop Stranger


Pepper Prov.

It was 2 a.m. last time I recalled that faithful day, it was cool crisp night if I remember well. Nothing unusual about it; I worked overtime at the bakery in order to earn more money for an apartment. I wasn't homeless, in fact my father was a diplomat for the queen; the problem I was the youngest of five. Therefore, the forgotten child, the black sheep of the Rollins family; to everyone besides my three older siblings and the household servants. I grew tired of being neglected and decided to earn a living on my own the first step getting my own apartment.

I was close to my goal, so close! I had already found the place far from my home; I only needed forty-nine dollars. Finally, after working long hours in the day; I received the money and hurried home happily. As I walked the dusty streets, I had the odd feeling that was being watched; panicking I began to pace until I was left breathless. I stop for a moment to look behind me, of course finding no one there; I sighed taking this opportunity to fix my dress.

I pulled out my pocket mirror, to tie my messy black curls back and straighten my eyelashes that highlighted my radiant blue eyes. I moved the mirror to allow the moonlight to hit it, when I did my heart lurched. On the roof, was a tall figure carrying what looked like a chainsaw. I began running for my life, not caring where I went as long as I could get as far away from the stranger as possible. I turned a corner into an alley; I closed my eyes praying that the rooftop stranger would not find me.

"Bad spot, to be hiding from me don't you think?" I opened my eyes to find him right in front of me. A large cheshire smile on his face, he grabbed my hand pulling me toward him. His grip tightened on me as he looked closely at my face almost memorized." Well if it isn't my lucky day! You'll do perfectly!" I stared at the man fear evident in my eyes," Fo-for what?" Without warning, I was hit in the head by something very heavy. I began seeping into unconsciousness, but not before I heard" For the role of a lifetime my darling."
