A fantasy story made with twists: Key Holder


The powerful wind whispers the leafs, from the trees surrounding Jane's house, thrusting them around in a loop in front of the house. The door opens and out comes Jane, her dark hair hanging perfectly straight down, her dark blue eyes glowing, her tall and thin body being dressed by a white dress that poorly hanged showing all her collarbones. Her right hand was gripping a grey knife. From behind her a dark and mysterious figure came and hugged her. Then she felt safe and secure and dropped the knife.

"It's over my love there's nothing to fear" He whispered in her ears. With that said they both disappeared leaving nothing but a light cloud of blue smoke.

Chapter 1

Jane entered the school wearing the same uniform as always. She felt dirty because she didn't have time to wash it. Between her job and writing, there was no time left in her daily dues. Jane was feeling happy and alive, the day seemed to bring bliss to her heart. She swimmed in the throng of students that were standing, walking and playing in the high school hallway. Jane had no friends of any kind; she was freak girl in school that nobody talked to.

She entered the classroom and sat in the last chair of the line. She was ready to face another day, but this time with glee. When the bell rang all the kids began to come in to the classroom in a big line. The boys were laughing and making jokes at other girls. The girls were simply talking about boys and actors. Jane felt betrayed by her female classmates because none had the guts to speak with her and actually invite her to join the groups. Still, this was the day in Jane's life that everything was taking a different turn.

At the back at line came in the most beautiful guy that Jane had ever seen. His looks were dark but completely natural. He was tall and skinny, his hair was light sparky brown, his dimples grew on the corners of his cheeks and his amber eyes made Jane's heat jolt. She lowered her head as she always does, but to her surprise he sat in front of her.

She could smell his skin. It smelled sweet like a spoonful ofLillie’s that grew in her garden. His back was wide enough for her to use as a pillow.

Then the unexpected happened, he turned around.

"Hi there! My name is Elliot, yours?" He introduced very politely to her. He wanted to make friends but even more he wanted to know the love of his life. the girl that forever would get him from his misery.
