Don't Be a StrangerDon't Be a Stranger
Sitting in the front row of a funeral service in a church that you've never been too can be a very difficult and traumatic couple of hours. Especially when the person is extremely important to the one you love the most, but they are a stranger to you.
Less than two years ago my girlfriend's father died; I didn't know him. Even though I didn't know him, he knew me, as any father would with the boy who dates his baby girl for the last seven years. In the seven years leading up to his death I had never spoke to him, I was afraid of him. In seven years I never shook his hand, never shared a conversation, I never even stayed in the same room as him for more than a brief moment. Like I said before I didn't know him, but he knew me.
While sitting just a few feet from his lifeless body I couldn't let myself become emotional, for his daughter, for his wife, for everyone. I was being strong and I didn't want to be. Never before had something been so messed up as a seven year
Descension Chapter 8Revelation
Seth pins the young man against the wall, "Why are you trying to kill the Queen, William?"

William looks at Seth and raises his left eyebrow, "And what?"
"Was that it?"
"So no....you can't stop me even if I tell you when and where?" Seth can believe it for the first half of his life in this world people were more than happy to tell him wear to find his opponents out of sure cockiness. Now that
Descension Chapter 7Genesis
Half way back to the castle the teen wakes up but instead of struggling he just stays quiet. Seth looks back at the boy and is surprised he has woken up so soon after being hit by one of Tayo's lightning bolts. Seth drops him to the ground and takes hold of the rope around his wrists and yanks him in front of the group.
"If you run Tayo will hit you with another lightning bolt." William looks back at Tayo who is playing with an electric current between his fingertips.
"Maybe you should think of a new idea."
Seth shakes his head quickly becoming irritated with the teens cockiness. The rest of the trip is silent except the casual comment by Griffen who hasn't let Cole come back since William is an obvious threat.
Seth and Airo take William to a holding cell in the Tristain castle and pull a bench up to the bars so they can speak with him.
William sitts on the cot-like bed facing towards the two men, "Well I'm sure you have more questions. You should hurry."
Airo looks at Seth who
