Tall, Dark and Scary (Chapter 1)As I lay in bed, I touched my lips. They tingled slightly to the touch but the initial pain, I once felt, was gone. Why did I have to read that note? Why did I have to show up at the greenhouse? It was like I was begging to have a run in with evil. I mean honestly though, I never expected the sender to be him. The note was just there early this morning. It didn't have anything other than my name and it was folded into a nice, neat square. I knew it couldn't have been a mistake because I am the only Arabelle in my school.

to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
