Average, normal, and invisible are three things no girl wants to be. Except for Riley. She has a secret to hide. It just involves her eyes, that happen to have flecks that change colour. Riley tries to be invisible. She wears average clothes, has a normal hair style, and has very few friends. The only thing that she thinks makes her visible to others is her eyes. She doesn't know why or how, but she has flecks in her eyes that change color with her emotion. She tries to keep it under control as much as she can, but sometimes her emotions get the best of her. Her best friend, Oliver, thinks it is pretty cool that her eyes do that. Oliver is the only person she is comfortable with seeing her eyes change. Then a few days into the last year of high school, she is seated beside the school hunk, Evan. Someone she could never even dream of being near, or talking to, is now beside her. She tries her hardest to not be phased by him, she knows she needs to keep her eyes a secret for as long as possible. Until the day he shares a secret with her that will change her life forever. She is a shape shifter. He knows because he is one too. Then when trouble comes around, Riley needs to decide if she will help, or hide.

Prologue

“Riley it’s time to go in your room now. Make sure you are quiet this time” mommy says. She looks funny, kinda like a clown. Mommy always puts stuff on her face. She says it is to make you look pretty, but I always think mommy is pretty.

“But mommy...” I try to say,

“No buts Riley. Mommy will be busy for a while.” After she shuts my door she locks it. I can hear her get the other door. I can hear her talking to someone, it sounds like him again. I wish mommy would listen to me, I need to go potty and I’m hungry. The thunder is scaring me, it is so loud. I guess I’ll just play with Lynoll, she is my best friend because she is a lion.

“Lynoll I think the bad man is here to see mommy again.” I say while jumping onto my bed giving her a hug.

Did you try to tell her what happened last time?

“I tried to tell her what he did last time, but she said I was a liar” I tell her. I wish mommy would listen to me. The bad man had come in my room last time and hit me really hard. He said I was playing too loud, and that I shouldn’t even be here. I just wanted mommy to come in and play with me, but she always falls asleep before he leaves.

“Lynoll I want to be a lion like you. You aren’t afraid of anything.”

My dear Riley you can be a lion too. All you have to do is think you are a lion. Pretend you are acting like me. You saw a lion like me once at the zoo remember? That is how you got me. Try roaring. If you roar so loud the bad man will never hurt you again. Keep trying Riley.

“Roar, roar, roar” This is so much fun, “ROAR! Oh no Lynoll, I hear him coming.”

“Hey Kid, Shut up. Your mother is sleeping” He yells and bangs on my door. I need to hide. I can’t let him find me. Where can I hide? Under the bed? No that is where he found me last time. The closet? I can hide under the dirty clothes mommy says she will wash.

“Hey kid, I know you are in there. Why don’t we have some more fun and play that game we played last time?” I can hear him unlock my door. I can’t cry, he will find me if I cry.

Be calm child, just breath. Everything will be okay as long as you keep acting like a lion. Trust me.

“Where the heck are you kid? Are you under the bed?” I can hear him walking in my room. “Huh not here, well there is only one place left.” I hear him coming closer to the closet. Lynoll please help me, keep me safe.

I will just calm down, don’t move yet. When he gets close to you, you need to roar and hit his face like he did to you.

The bad man opened the closet door, but looks funny almost like he is scared.

“What the he...”

Hit him now Riley. Now is your chance to get rid of him!

There is a big bang from the thunder, then I “ROAR!” and move my hand and hit his face, just like he had done to me. I make sure I hit him as hard as I can. Why is there blood? There was no blood when he hit me. That wasn’t even my hand; it looked like Lynoll’s paw. The bad man ran out the door screaming.

“You did it Lynoll. You helped me!”

No Child you did that all on your own.

“What do you mean Lynoll? You didn’t help me? I made him bleed?”

Go look in the mirror child, and see for yourself.
