This is my story. I hope that you like it. If you think I could improve anything please tell me because I am going to write a sequel.
I Groaned and rolled over, rubbing my eyes as sunlight blazed into my bedroom, casting a cheerful glow around the room.
I rolled off the bed, pulling the blankets with me and landed with a loud THUD on the carpeted bedroom floor.
Groaning again, I got up and began to get dressed.
Outside, birds were singing their little songs, calling to each other as they flew through the cloudy sky.
In the distance, I could faintly hear the sounds of the busy marketplace on the other side of town.
It seemed like a typical day in this little town, nothing bad had happened yet today.
But I knew better.
SOMETHING was wrong.
I needed to know WHAT though.
I ran out my room, down the stairs and raced into my parent’s room.
“Mum?” I called softly. “Dad?”
A strange, almost invisible shape rose from the bed, defiantly not one of my parents.
“Listen” It said, in a hissing voice like 10 voices speaking at once.
“For I shall tell you this only once, then you must pass on the message to those who understand more.”
I swallowed. “O-ok” I said in a hoarse whisper.
Then the ghost began to speak.
“Darkness sleeps, unaware
Hidden away in a secret lair
A promise can be kept and broken
Opposite fates to be spoken.
White and Black must stand together,
Against the darkness that goes forever.”
I sensed movement behind me, and turned to see my brother standing there, looking at me with wide eyes.
“Y-you killed them!” He gasped.
“What??!!” I exclaimed, surprised by the sudden accusation.
My brother turned and ran down the hallway, and a few seconds later I heard the door slam shut.
I quickly raced into my room and grabbed a bag, a water bottle and a bow.
I tugged at the window, then realised It was stuck.
Deciding I didn’t have time to search for the key, I grabbed my clock and threw it at the window.
The window shattered, and I pulled on a jumper and some sandals. Quickly and swiftly, I leaped out the window and landed on the street.
Recovering quickly, I ran down the streets and into the forest.
Very soon, I heard the rustling of leaves and a small, nimble shape landed in front of me.
It moved forward quickly, its eyes glinting in the darkness.
It came closer.
