Deadly Love - Chapter 1
"Oh where has that girl run off to now?" says a lady as she steps out of her house. Her house looks old and shabby along with the rest of the houses beside hers. the grass under feet is dead and dusty and the people walk around as if a plague has hit them. Most of the people are either very old or very young. The lady that had stepped out of her house sighs loudly and then heads for the marketplace in the middle of the village.
"I swear if she doesn't have those herbs, I'm going to..." the lady stops talking as she sees the girl she was searching for. A young girl with brown long hair, diamond blue eyes and peach skin walks up to the old lady with a basket in her hand.
"Hello Grandmother," says the young lady "I brought you the herbs, just like you said." she holds the basket in front of her grandmother and smiles brightly.
"Oh thank you my dear." The grandmother says as she holds the basket in her hands, looking through the herbs. She stops looking in the basket as she notices that the young ladies side is bleeding and there is i hole in her dress.
"What happened to you dear?" the Grandmother asked.
"Oh this," the young lady says as she looks at her side "it's nothing. I just ran into a tree branch on the way here and it cut me a little. I'm fine Grandmother". she says again with a smile on her face. It was then that she noticed that the young ladies face was paler than usual. The grandmother shook it off and started to walk back to her house with the young lady. As they walked back to the house, the young lady started to sway and walk differently. She started to lose her vision and she started to breath heavily. Finally the young lady fell hard on the floor.
"Oh help me! My dear! Please someone get some help!" the young lady heard from her grandmother as she looked up a bit. She saw her grandmother's face tear up as her grandmother picked her up and tried to save her. Without hesitation she moved her head up up to her grandmother's ear and whispered into her ear. Her grandmother stood there in shock as she heard her grand-daughter say her last words and then die in her arms.
"No that can't be it!" said a young boy as his sits on the edge of his bed listening to a story being told to him before bedtime.
"I'm sorry but that's it" I say as I shut the book in front of me. I brush my brown, wavy hair out of my face as I get up to tuck my brother into bed.
"So what did the young lady say before she died, Skyler?" asked my brother as he gets into his bed and lays on his pillow.
"That I don't know but we might find out later but only if you go to sleep, James." I say as I kiss his forehead while he starts to fall asleep. I walk out of his room and turns off the light and then head towards my room across the hall.
It's actually a good thing he doesn't know the secret. He's lucky he doesn't have to deal with it day in and day out like me and our older sister Tymber. Girls born in our family have a natural "specialty" but it's more of curse than a gift.
Me and my sister are called Succubus's. We look like we are normal human's, living our everyday lives but we are really demonic seducers who want nothing but to feast on the souls of men who are unlucky. Well, technically I get the guys who are on the bad side of life while my sister gets the guys who have normal, healthy lives.
I could go on and on about how my sister gets the good souls while I deal with the bad souls but in all honesty, we both hate it and there's nothing we can do about our curse. In fact, I'm quite hungry.
It's been awhile since I made the prologue and i really actually want to make this story now lol. Let me know what you think about this chapter.
Chpater 2 coming soon!
