The Shadowy Realm Between Good and Evil
I lived my life on the edge, always exploring the dark aspects of the unknown. So, as my senior year of high school came to an end, my two friends, Ilysa, Taylor and I planned a trip to the east coastof Maine. A trip that would take us into the darkest realm of evil that we could ever imagine. A tripfilled with love, magic, and the secret society of the Blood Lords. If we could change time, would wedo it again?

My father and I stood in the driveway of our upstate New York home, waiting for Ilysa andTaylor. The moment I heard the purr of Ilysa's new black BMW convertible around the corner, I lookedaway from my father. The top was down, and the twins' identical long curly blond hair blew in the coolmorning breeze. My father grabbed my hand and said, “Izzy, please be careful.”Looking up at my father, I could see concern. No, not concern, but fear! Kissing his cheek, Iwhispered, “Don't worry daddy, I'll be fine.”With a fake grin, he said, “I know, kiddo.”While watching his only child ride away, James Morgan, jumped the moment his wife touchedhis arm. Smiling at her husband, Amanda said, “She'll be OK.”“I don't know, Amanda, I have a strange feeling.”“You always feel that way when she leaves us.”As Amanda led her husband back to their home, he whispered to himself, “This time isdifferent, my love; I can feel it deep in my bones.” Most of the six hour drive was a blast. Cher blaring from the XM radio, the cool ocean breeze
