My dad knew as well as I that moving isnt easy, especially to a place so very far away, so he would cushion it with promises such as these. Thoughts of horses and mountain ranches made the process of tearing away from my homeland all that more bearable, so I complied. My visions were of a log cabin situated on the hips of the foothills, with gentle mares that would lean their heads in my window in the heat of summer mornings. Of dirt roads and tractors, of cattle and barbed wire. But mostly horses, of course.
Colorado is not all horses and ranches. Our house turned out to squat in a quiet patch of suburb that seems a subtle copy of the very neighborhood from which I had come. It is a pale ivory and not made of logs, and the grass lives in trim, green patches like quilt squares, not in long stalks that whisper to my elbows. And the mountains?

I guess I am that kind of guy. I have the appearance of the stereotypical loner; my entire wardrobe is black. I paint my fingernails –which are disgustingly gnawed down out of nerves- and my hair is emerald green. Most mornings, I don't even bother to comb it; I pull my hood up over it instead. I'm too pale, too dark, too brooding. I hate the world and the world hates me.
I don't wonder why they think I'll blow them all to hell.

The word was familiar, yet it was hardly used to describe any of the actions you took or any of the circumstances you were placed under from a young age and so it was hard to comprehend the feeling when it came to you during one of the darkest nights. A night of a new moon, the sky absolutely dark, your mind fighting against what was reality and what was . . . folklore.
Against everything you had been brought up to believe. Against every explanation you could come up with in a second, against the voice of your mother, who decided to spend the night at home, yelling at you to turn the lights off and go to bed, you stayed awake as long as you could with a book open and a lamp on that was the only source of light in the house.

Somewhere, I cannot tell you where, but certainly not anywhere you would know of, in a forest lush and green, there lived an old woman in a small, wooden hut who long for a child—a boy or maybe girl or maybe one of each. One day the old woman decided if she could not have a child, then she would just have to go out and make a child. But one year passed, and then another, and another, and the old woman had no luck in making the right child. Should she give up on her none existent child? “I shall not” was her response to herself.
But how could she make a child if there was no empty shell of one to enchant? No matter, she would keep on her search, village by village, until she was no more but bones, but she was already as thin as bones and that would make no difference. She needed a wider range of the forest to search and she could fathom only one idea; she would have to split herself in order to obtain what she wanted.

At that moment, everything felt like it was currently on pause. Unable to control the tears flowing down your cheeks, you buried your face deeper into your hands, somewhat embarrassed.
Perfect, I'm about to blast him and then I start sobbing in his face..
You could feel his presence near by. You knew he must be confused by your sudden confession and he probably thinks you're even weirder than before. All you really wanted right now was for Pitch to abandon the fight so you could go back home. You didn't want to do this sh-t anymore. Whatever decision you would make, somebody would always get hurt.
At that exact moment of hopelessness, you felt his hand on your shaking shoulder. Refusing to look up, you simply managed to not move under his cool touch.
"Y-You thought I...left you?" His voice was high pitched and shaky, like if he was just moments away from breaking down like you.
Slightly raising your head so he could see a small part of your eyes, you shot him a death glare.

Never had Jack met a child that absolutely loathed the snow. That is until that one fated night in which he came to land on a city he had so long abandoned because of its constant hot weather; it was never predictable, the weather, and usually his snowflakes melted before landing on anything solid. That particular night, though, the temperature had drop and the winds had grown and it was perfect for his landing.
He had landed on a particularly normal house; there was nothing special about it, but the moon seemed to shine the brightest from that roof. The lights poured over the roofs, to the walls, and into the windows. Jack, like the well behaved winter spirit he is, quickly set to work on investigating these new additions to the city that had not been there when he had been there last.
The frost his body emitted frosted the roof and the edges of the window as he leaned upside down to sneak a peek. The window was soon crystallizing slowly, but he was still able to catch a small bundle

Relishing the feeling of the soft material drifting across your legs had you skipping about the room, past the fireplace yet as you gaze caught onto your reflection, you stumbled back a few paces and went onto tiptoes so as to see more of your body in the mirror hung above the mantel piece.

Pitch Black, the Boogeyman, was someone you had never truly believed in and had hardly ever heard him mentioned. Maybe you should have paid attention when Jack had mention him, but you had disregarded him and had forgot what he had mention about such a man.
He was bad. That is what you knew; Pitch Black was what nightmares were made of, or what commanded them. Your thoughts were muddled by your nightmare, by his appearance in your reality, by your mother’s and Ruben’s reaction when you kept screaming for them to turn around and look at the threat behind them.
There was another fact that couldn’t be ignored by your analytical mind, and that was how his sole presence affected the atmosphere of the room, the attitude of those inside the room, how he was able to affect the state of your mind.

It was warm.
That was the first thought that came to your mind when it awoke from it slumber before your body. The sounds around you were familiar, the warmth of a hand caressing your cheek, and the odd sensation that you’ve passed through this before. And it was like a dream when you opened your eyes to see those of your worried mother looking right back at you.
Her hair pulled up, face bright with make-up, and wearing her usual business attire of a black suit with a white collared shirt. Time had gone backwards, and you were looking at the mother you had once seen when you were younger, when you had first gotten sick because of . . . Jack.

It was something you hadn’t felt in months if not a couple of years.

There wasn't a lot in this so called room. Just a few chairs surrounding a rectangular counter in the middle of it all. The counter looked cold and had a metallic texture.

He always came back with stories of the amazing dragons and how people would ride them across the sea. When he returned from his trips there would be a great feast and he would tell the whole village of the boy named Hiccup who trained the first dragon, the elusive Night Fury, and how he managed to restore balance between Vikings and dragons by slaying the Red Death. Everyone loved the stories except you. Be it that you felt you heard the same story a million times or you were jealous that only the chief has seen the other island, it was probably both. Especially since the chief was your father and he had never once offered to bring you along on his trips that he took once a year.

Jack was rushed into your study, your voice chattering away with loud thoughts as you searched frantically for your other tools that you had gathered with the help of Jamie. He had warned you about using them only in emergencies, only then and no other time, but this counted as an emergency. How long would it last, this ability to touch him with the spoon and feeding him oatmeal?
True, what you were looking for through your drawers was not a tool, but a weapon you had Jamie hunt down and buy. He had sent it to you the year before, which was when he was able to buy it legally. It was an old dagger made of silver; you had made sure he checked it was silver. It was costly, but worth it, or so Jamie had convinced you to think so, and now you were glad that you listen to him.
