Heartless Chapter 1: The awakening
I walked down this long empty hallway, for what seemed like ages. The silence had trouble spilled all over it. Linoleum that seemed paved out of thick rubber was wearing away like the dimming light that came from his lantern. Each time he turned the darkness would fill me with envy. Why couldn't I just slip into the shadows and disappear? Would anyone miss me? I'm sure no one actually would. So much for wishful thinking.
He was a tall blond man that I followed through this maze like mansion. His eyes were coarse and seemed like they too have lost the sparkle and richness of life. He bunched up his long wavy locks into a small pony that hung down his back. Seeming to only make this man more of a wonder to me. His scent that lingered smelled like burned firewood.

Chapter 1: Prologue.
My father was never a man of many words, he may have spoken little, but, that was all he needed to say. I being the daughter of a sworn mad man may be the reason why I see things in a different light.
If you ask me he was a typical ordinary guy. With a few quirks about him is all. I never knew the secrets he kept from me, or my twin sister, the reason why mother was never around, or the fact that he never came out of his room during the day, but, somehow managed to get us up for school.

We grew up in a tiny little town called Cherry Springs. It would sound like a beautiful place, to some. But, I hated all of the happy neighbors, the green mowed lawns, the rowdy children playing childish games in the street. Sometimes, I w
