Daughter of the Moon

All Rights Reserved ©


I was born on a cold November night under the full moon. My mother never made it to the Hospital. The car broke down in the middle of the forest and the Ambulance never had the chance to get there in time. I was always told that was why I looked different from my mother and father. That the light of the moon had turned the colour of my hair silver grey and my eyes as blue as the icy cold night when I was welcomed to this world. Since the day I was born, it has been forbidden for me to be outside after dark. They always claimed it was because of the many preditors roaming our district. I was their only daughter and they couldn't bear the thought of losing me. I never believed that that was the whole truth, but I also never imagined that the truth would turn everything I knew upside down. Forcing me to choose between the love of my life and the man I can't stay away from.

I was nine when I asked the first time if I could stay overnight with one of my friends. I knew I had to ask them if I ever wanted to see my friends again.

Though I had never before made such a request, they almost looked at me as if I had asked for the most outrageous thing in the world. I never even got a reason for the no and the attitude. I was just told to be home at 7, and that I might as well stay home if these deals weren’t committed to.

Once I was half an hour late and they went crazy. From that moment, if I was more than 5 minutes late, they would come for me themselves.

Even by the time I was 15, I had never been out for later than 7pm. My bedtime was at 10:30, and if I couldn’t fall asleep by 11, I would have to take a sleeping pill for a good night sleep, as my parents called it. ‘If I didn’t get my 8-9 hours of sleep, I wouldn’t be ready for the next day,’ was their excuse.

That routine had been all my life. Even now as I turn 20, I have no explanation as to why. I always dream about the night sky and how it would be to bathe in the light of the Moon like when I was born, but that dream was almost impossible to reach for.

Lucky for me, I had been planning my escape for years now. And this was the night to it. It was a full moon and my two best friends had invited me for a moonlight picnic as the November night this year was warm.

When I say my two best friends, I mean my best friend and the man who I have had a secret crush on for years. Archer.

Maybe something will happen tonight? A girl is allowed to dream.
