Adam Boswell


Adam looked down at the paper in his hand apprehensively. A mansion in the middle of a forest. What were the odds of that happening? And another thing, how in the world did this letter reach him? Adam was reasonably certain that at the last place he had been staying, no one had any idea he was a part Demon. He'd only lived there for a few months, for crying out loud! The only thing that brought Adam a small sense of comfort was the signature: Glitch. He'd heard of her, that was for sure. A fae-vampire mix who'd been around for probably forever, she was most likely trustworthy. But at the same time, it wouldn't be that hard to simply sign her name at the bottom of a letter.

But what if it was real? An actual home, a place where he didn't have to constantly worry about someone seeing his ears or making him angry or finding out his secret. And even if they did make him angry, at least they'd sort of know what to do. It would feel pretty good again to relax. He might even be able to make a friend or two. The letter hadn't exactly specified how many people had been invited, but it was more than him. Hopefully there would be at least one garden. Then again, all of this would only work if the invitation was genuine. For all he knew, an angry mob could be hiding in the forest waiting to stab him with pitchforks and burn him to death. That would be unpleasant.

And this was getting him nowhere. If he kept going back and forth like this, he'd still be on the edge of the road by the time night fell. Adam took a deep breath, stuffed the paper into his backpack, and walked past the first line of trees. So far, so good. He peered around carefully, trying to convince himself that everything was going to be fine. His heart was starting to beat faster and faster, an unpleasant feeling that he actively tried to avoid. Usually when his heart rate was up it was easier to provoke him into an attack. As Adam continued walking through the forest, his sense of uneasiness faded somewhat. If they'd been planning on killing him, they probably wouldn't have taken any chances and knocked him out right away. That was what he was telling himself, at least.

Adam could see the line of trees ending up ahead. He slowed down and looked out from behind one of the last ones. The sight of the mansion-it really was a mansion- took his breath away. This place was huge! And it looked like there were several gardens, which was a relief. Adam was about to step out when a girl suddenly descended from the sky and landed right in front of the house. He flinched and studied her closely for a few minutes. She didn't seem suspicious, far from it in fact. She could fly, so she must have also been invited to stay here. "Hello? Is anyone here? I got your invitation..." That settled it for Adam. He nervously smoothed his hair over his ears, an old habit, and began to walk towards the house. Before he got too close, however, he coughed to alert the girl of his presence. It wouldn't do any good to get himself killed or injured by startling a person with powers.
