Journey To The Past

Chapter I

After the bands practice, I decide to walk down the streets of London. A small book store caught my interest. I stroll in and you can tell it was old by the Victorian designs around the store.

I browsed through the store and saw a huge collection of books. I couldn't believe how many there were for a small store. There were first editions of Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Sherlock Holmes. That when I noticed a small thin book.

I pulled out the small thin book. It looked like a journal. I open up the journal and on the first page was a name. The name was Cain C. Hargreaves.

I decided to buy the journal and the Alice in Wonderland first edition. I walked over to the counter to check out. This old lady comes out from the back and it looked like she was born in the Stone Age or something because she was ancient.

"Is this all?" she asked

"Yes" I said smiling.

"That will be fifty-seven ninety-five." she said looking at the cash register

I just looked at her for a few seconds and sighed. I grabbed my wallet from my pocket. I paid her with my debit card. She placed the books in a bag and handed the bag to me. I was about to leave when she grabbed my arm and said "Be careful with that journal. It will bring great danger to you."

I gave her a puzzled look and said "Ok" and walked out fast.

I had gone a couple blocks from the store. I decided to stop and thought to myself 'What a crazy old lady.' I grabbed the journal from the bag and observed it with uncertainty.

'What did she mean by that anyway?' I asked myself.

I tossed the journal back in to the bag. I decided to brush it off. I strolled back to the hotel.

I got back to the hotel. It was around ten o' clock. I walked into the elevator and press the sixth floor button and went straight to my room.

I got into my room and set the books on the chair. I went over to my lounge and grab my Snoopy PJ pants and a Snoopy t-shirt. I finish changing and lie on the bed and turn on the TV. I flip through the channels to look for Doctor Who. No Doctor Who. No TV. I decided to grab one of the books from the chair. I grab Alice in Wonderland first, but I decided to grab the journal.

I go and sit on my bed and opened the journal. When a picture fell out. I grabbed it and it was a black and white picture of a little girl and a young man. 'He must be Cain. He looks kind of cute.' I said to myself looking at the picture.

I put the picture down on the night stand and start to read the journal: Last night I buried my pet bird. I think father killed it. He always takes away my favorite things...

I look at the page and there was nothing else written. I look through the whole journal and there's nothing written in this whole thing.

"I paid for this thing and there's nothing else written in it! That's bullshit!" I yelled throwing the book across the room.

Thinking to myself 'I'm going to return that book tomorrow and get my money back'

I laid down on my bed, trying to not get mad about my disappointment about the journal. I turned the light on the night stand off and went to sleep.

Autumn: The details were precise and the story is interesting. It makes me want to keep reading and never stop. I still want to know what happens. This story had moments where I needed to know what happened.

_Hatters_Friend_: So it legit won't let me click the starts but it's really good! I honestly don't have anything negative to say about it. I like how you dove into how from a human perspective everything they do it's inhumane but that's what wolves are.

chiyaagarwal0300: The plot is really good, similar yet different in it's own kind. Something I would recommend to people who want to read a nice tragic love story with a happy ending .

Katherine: Brilliant book shame the ending was so quick but well worth reading ❤❤❤

Kayla B: As always author, you never disappoint. This story was absolutely amazing although, it would have been great for an epilogue. Other than that, great work! Keep it up and I look forward to reading more of your stories! ♡♡

Danette Pratt: You are an amazing writer. I feel your stories. Thank you for sharing your talent!

MizzRoxy: This book had me on the edge of my seat! I was reading so hard and could not put it down! The cliff hangers! I hope you continue writing as you do so wonderfully. Thank you for this amazing story where your readers (If creative enough) envision themselves in the story. I fell in love with this bo...

Candy Carter DC: The story is intriguing just want to keep reading!

White: I love this book. I'm definitely gonna finish the rest of it. The writing style is amazing

grandmadscrafty: This was a quick read, but the story never seemed to drag on. A happy ending without cliff hangers. Once the initial ill fated relationship with her soon to be ex-husband, the new live interest had none of the ups and downs of the standard novel relationships, which was refreshing. No games!

Valentina : I love this story !@@

FAR Q 2: Great read all the time. Thanks heaps can't wait for more.

S_Stafford: I will definitely be going to Dreame. I want to read what happens.
