When daylight breaksA Chapter by Serenity
The sun burned bright, torturing Adrian’s sensitive eyes. Being kept underground for so long, Adrian wasn’t ready for the bright rays of the sun. It would take a while for his eyes to adjust to the severe light. Stumbling Adrian made his way over to the edge of the small patch of trees. Breathing heavily he sighed and passed out underneath the shaded grove. He awoke later, the sun had already set, but the moon shone down brightly, covering Adrian in a patch of pure moonlight. He walked over to a small little pond in the middle of the grove and looked down at his reflection. His skin was a pale milky white, his face was also flawless, no moles, birthmarks, or freckles, not an imperfection in sight. On his right hand however there was a brown birthmark in the form of what looked to be flames or something like that. His bright ice blue eyes stared back at him in the pool of water. They almost looked like two crystals in the night. His sleek black hair came down, covering his ears and forehead. He pushed his bangs to one side trying to keep them out of his face, and his eyes. He stood back up, his legs slightly long and slender. He was a skinny kid, always had been. He looked down at his tiny hands and then to his small feet and started walking away from the pond. He looked nothing like his father he thought. His father had short bright blonde hair, with maroon eyes that gleamed with pleasure. He was tall, long legs long torso, and large hands. Adrian could be considered tall he thought. He stepped out of the tree line and looked at the city before him. He made his way to the sidewalk and began walking around trying to figure out a game plan of sorts. A guy all dressed in black smiled at him and complimented his outfit. For the first time since arriving Adrian looked down to see what he was wearing. He had on a pair of black skinny jeans with zippers that went up the side of his legs, with the bottoms tucked into his black combat boots with little silver studs on them. He had a black and grey striped shirt on and a black zip up hoodie that had a skeleton on the front when you zipped it up. Stuffing his hands in the pockets of his jacket he pulled out a pair of sleek black gloves. Adrian smiled and checked his jean pockets to see if there was anything else that could be useful. Pulling his hands back out of his pockets he found two plastic cards. Inscribed on the top of one was the word credit card and the other had a picture of him on it, his date of birth, although the year was wrong. The card said that he was 21 when in fact he knew he was 18, but who was he to say that it was wrong. He shrugged his shoulders and continued on his way. He passed through many allies and got stopped by many drug addicts or gang bangers seeking some money or any valuable items that could be sold. This made his job easier than he thought; instead of him having to search for these lowlifes here they were coming to him. By the time the night was over he had collected 17 souls. He looked to the sky and saw the first golden rays of sun breaking the horizon. He cursed under his breath and made his way to an abandoned building. It looked old, and was boarded up. He shimmied through a couple broken boards and found himself inside a grand hallway. There was dust and cobwebs everywhere. The huge stairway had a lot of holes and the stairs did not look safe to walk on at all. The tile on the ground floor was cracked and in some places was missing all together. Adrian stepped to the side and made his way to the living room area. He found that there was no furniture besides the mirror on the wall, the table in the center of the room and a large dresser, and some nice piles of hay in multiple corners. He plopped down on the one farthest in the shade and closed his eyes. Then he heard some sort of a rustling in the hay stack opposite him. Sitting up he looked over to see the hay stack moving.
“Crap” he muttered and curled further into the corner trying to hide from the moving mass of hay. Then a young girl appeared from beneath the hay. She was tall, skinny, had bright blonde hair and these eyes that matched his. Her lips were rose red just like her cheeks. She was elegant and dainty; she looked as if at any moment she was going to snap in two. She stood up brushed off the hay and proceeded to pull it out of her beautifully long blonde hair. She turned toward the mirror that was hanging up on the wall. It was broken in one corner but the rest was still usable. She carefully separated her hair and braided it into a nice side braid. She then turned around and walked towards the dresser. The girl grabbed a pair of pants a shirt and some other items and then proceeded to the nearest bathroom. Adrian heard the water of a shower start and then got up to head to the closest room. He quickly opened the door and gently closed it, turning around he sighed and hoped into bed, climbing under the old worn out covers. He heard the shower turn off and a door squeak open. Rolling over he tuned out the world. Slowly he drifted off into sleep.
