Here's the beginning of a book I'm working on. sorry if there are errors, I haven't got t edited yet.
William stood staring into the dark rainy night from the safety of his living. His day was long and the night seemed to drag, as his mind once again filled with thoughts. Thoughts of his past, thoughts of his present, and thoughts of his future. He had came a long way in last two weeks, he had became a different person then what he use to be and he couldn't get the words his brother told him earlier out of his mind. It’s been two weeks since he had first came to this town and he still hasn't gained everyone’s trust.
He was suddenly taken from his train of thought by a pounding on his front door.
William walked over and opened it, on the other side of the door was a young woman with freckles her red hair waved down the left and right of her head.
“Heather what are you doing out in this storm?” asked William.
“I was worried about you,” she answered with a cute grin. “And I've brought you some food in case your were hungry.”
William stepped aside allowing her to walked in then, closed the door behind her.
They were sitting at a table in the center of the kitchen across from each other eating the food that had Heather brought.
“This is really good,” said William. “What is it?”
“You don’t know what this is?” she asked in confusion.
“No, I've never had it before.”
Heather put her right hand on her lips and giggled; then she answered with a smile “These are ham and cheese sandwiches, I made them myself.”
“Wow you’re a really good cook.”
Heather giggled again. “Thanks.” She then changed the subject. “So it's been two weeks since you've gotten here, how do you like it so far?”
“It isn't too bad, most people are nice but some hate me.”
“Well your father for one.”
“Oh come on, my dad doesn't hate you he just doesn't know you very well. I mean you've just showed up here two weeks ago in the middle of the night and you were hurt pretty bad. Plus you haven't told anyone anything about who you are and where you came from. My dad is the sheriff so he’s just trying to make sure everyone is safe.”
“Well he doesn't need to worry about me, I'm a good person.”
“I know but people are afraid of what they don't know.”
“You’re not afraid of me.”
“Well I believe that when your ready your tell us what we want to know, but I'd never rush or pressure you. Just take your time; it's okay with me.”
William smiled, “You’re a good person Heather.”
Heather's cheeks turned red and she gave a light smile. “Thanks I take after my mom.”
There was a sudden ringing sound coming from heather jacket.
“Oh that's just my cell phone.”
She pulled out small phone, flipped in open and pulled out the antina on the top of it.. “Hi dad....” she spoke. “I'm at Will's.... ….....Come on dad don’t say that he’s really sweet...............Fine I'm on my way, love you bye.”
Heather then closed her phone and put it back in her jacket. “Sorry William I have to go my dad needs help fixing the leaks in our roof.”
“Okay thank you for the ham and cheese sandwiches.”
Heather stood up and walked to the door, escorted by William. Once they reached it Heather pulled the knob then turned back towards William and he asked. “So I'll see you tomorrow?”
Heather leaned over and pressed her lips to his right cheek before replying “Of course you will.”
Heather then smiled and walked out as the door closed behind her.
William walked over to a window and watched as she started her car. As her head-lights lit up blinding Williams sight begun to think back to the night he first came to the town.|
Two weeks earlier.......... December 1994
It was a dark night and the great storm was just starting to cease. Sheriff Jonathan Brown was driving around the town along with his young deputy Jeffery Wilson. They were making rounds across to town to clarify all the damaged the hurricane had caused.
“Well it seems everyone’s okay,” said Jonathan, “We have a lot of property damage though.”
“How much you think it’ll set the town back?” ask Jeffery.
“Not sure, let’s go back to the office and see we if got anymore reports.”
“Sure, sheriff,” replied Jeffery.
They begun to drive down a straight road on the outskirts of the town. To their left was their small town of Basile, to there right was miles of forest.
Within the woods not to far from the town was a young man with short blue hair and blue eyes was running towards a light he saw in the distance. He was badly injured with blood flowing from his forehead and arms. His right arm was fractured and he was lumping to his left. He kept thinking to his self “How could this have happened, how could I have gotten hurt like this?” He seen a road outside of the forest and ran towards it. As he ran out of the forest he was blinded by the bright light of a car heading straight for him. Jonathan noticed him in the way. He quickly slammed the breaks and turned the wheel trying to miss him. His car slid on the wet pavement and hit the young man as it stopped throwing him to the ground.
Jonathan ran out of the car and shouted to Jeffery. “CALL THE AMBALANCE”
Jonathan ran to the young and bent down towards him. “Hey kid are you okay.”
The man begun to cough and blood came from his mouth as he talked. “I'll be fine.”
“What's your name son?”
“It’s Winter,” he then hesitated for a sec, “William Winter.” He then blacked out.”
William slowly opened his eyes and was blinded by the bright ceiling lights staring down at him. He sat up and looked around noticing that he was sitting in a medical room. He begun to searched himself for the bruises but they were all gone as if he never had them, and his arm had healed perfectly.
“Oh so your awake.” came a male voice from the doorway.
He looked towards the sound and saw a young man in scrubs holding a yellow file.
“Where am I?” asked William.
“Your in the Acadian Medical Center in Eunice.” He opened the file and began to flip though papers. “So William, it’s seems you’re clear to leave. And I'm really impressed after being as badly injured as you were, you heal pretty quick.”
“Well how long would it usually takes someone to heal after that?”
“Weeks which is what’s really amazing about it.”
“Well the really think it’s odd that I was injured in the first place.”
“From what I heard you were out in the middle of a hurricane, and that’s why you got hurt.”
“I know it doesn’t make any sense.”
The nurse just stared at him in a silent confusion for a second before he spoke again, “Well you’re free to go. So just got by the front office and sign your release papers.”
“Great.” William stepped off of the bed. “How do I get back to the forest I was in?”
“You could take one-ninety. Why did you leave something there?”
“No I just have to see something.”
“Do you have someone you can call? Friends? Family?”
“Yeah, but I don’t think they’ll hear me from here.”
The nurse again stared at him in confusion for a second. “No that’s not what I meant. I’m talking about a phone number.”
“Oh, you mean other means of communications.” William put his hand on his head and begun to think for a second. “I don’t think it would be a good idea for me to reach just yet. I need to find out what’s happened to me first. How long is the forest from here.”
“Nine, ten miles.”
“Then I must get going.”
“Wait, how are going to get there?”
“I’m going to walk.”
“What? Come on don’t you have anyone who can come get you?”
“As I told you before it would best not to tell anyone yet. So that goes for you to. Do not tell a single soul that I was here.”
“I don’t even know who you are?”
“That’s best for the both of us. Now I must take my leave, you’ve wasted enough of my time already.”
“Okay, but you know my shifts up so if you want I can give you a ride. I live in Basile.”
“Thank you, let us make haste.”
The nurse again stared at him in confusion. William seemed to speak as if he’s never before left his house. It seems his knowledge was based on watching other but not really living himself. The nurse begun to think he’s knowledge was based on watching the media. “Okay William let’s go, and I’m Jonathan Lester by the way.”
“I didn’t ask.” Replied William as he walked out the door.
Jonathan sighed then followed him.
