He was nearly home when he spotted the strange man that seemed to be scouting either William, or perhaps casing his house. The boy was not the type to confront a mysterious stranger, so his first instinct was to pretend like he didn’t see him and keep walking. The wind was howling, and the paranoia was lingering, as William was reluctant to turn around to see if he was being followed. A brief moment of courage was mustered as he quickly turned to see nothing, much to his relief. Now, taking a deep breath, he turned back on his path home and became suddenly startled by the tall dark figure in front of him.

He stood in front of the mirror, staring, unimpressed by what he saw. William Danver was a scrawny little thing with glasses and an advanced vocabulary. Not exactly the formula for popularity for a seventeen year old boy in high school. William was constantly on the receiving end of torment and ridicule along with the occasional beating thrown in when the jocks wanted to impress the cheerleaders. He didn’t mind because he was smart enough to know that high school would be the peaking point in their lives. The familiarity of this treatment was not brought on by the cruel inner circle at Lawrence High, but from a source much closer to home.

Friday, February 1, 2013
For William Danver, High School was a breeze, academically that is. Although he wasn't popular, at all, his real problem was at home.
His father Gary Danver was an abusive, sadistic man, who also happened to be the crooked sheriff in their small town. Unable to get any help from the authorities, William vowed to protect his mother and younger sister by any means necessary.
His wish to protect his family came in the form of a mysterious stranger, Alexander, who would change the boy's life forever. Was it a curse or a blessing he granted William with? And did he do this to help the boy protect his family or did he have his own selfish reasons?
