Ever thought about what would happen after you died? Well, now is the time you will be able to find out. All the answers to your questions have finally be answered. But with the answers new questions are sure to arise. Not everyone goes to Heaven or Hell. Some are to continue carrying out their existence on Earth fulfilling the duties as a reaper. Unluckily enough, you have been chosen to do just that.

After your death you were given a mentor in order to help teach you the ropes of being a reaper. At first learning everything that went with being one was a lot to grasp in one day, but after you finally get your mind wrapped around all of the information and new life you will now lead, things will slowly begin to get easier.

Every day you are given a post it with a name, location, and time written on it and your job is to reap that person at the time given on the post it. If you don't complete your reap at the time given, there will be consequences.

The Reaper's Handbook
1. Always reap the soul before the death occurs. If it's not done, the soul will feel every bit of pain from the death and also feel trapped inside the lifeless body until the soul is reaped.

2. Don't allow your emotions to cloud your judgement of your job. Always get the job done.

3. To reap a soul, simply touch the person and the soul will be reaped seconds before their death occurs.

4. Another reaper is created when a reaper is given their last reap. No reaper knows when their time will be up until they get their last reap. When this happens, their last reap will then become a reaper.

5. You can only become a reaper if you have unfinished business at your time of death.

6. All reaper's look different than they did when they were alive, at least until everyone who could possibly know them are gone.

7. Just like everyone else in the world, reaper's need to have day jobs in order to survive. There are also those who take from the deceased upon their deaths. Including their homes, apartments, vehicles, etc. The reapers just continue to make the payments.

Kaydence couldn't believe what she was being told. She stood over her lifeless body with a man beside her, telling her life as she knew it was now over and she was now a reaper. She was now going to be a completely different person to everyone who knew her and she was not allowed to interact with her old friends and family again.

Even though she was shocked, puzzled, and even more scared than anything, she thought it would be best to follow the man who claimed to be Austin to a diner where he said they were going to meet up with the rest of the group.

When she arrived she noticed another person seemed to look as clueless and lost as she was and the rest of them sat there talking among each other as if they knew each other for years. "We have a new face," Austin spoke up, claiming the attention of the others.

He took a seat at the table just as he noticed another new face, "I take that back, we have two," he corrected himself and signaled for Kaydence to take the empty seat by whom she only assumed was new to whatever this was as well. The waitress made her way to the table and began taking their orders one by one before her attention landed on herself and the boy beside her. Go on, order something. You need your strength," Austin stated to the both of them.

Kaydence glanced down at the menu as she cleared her throat. "Um... I'll take a sausage melt with a side of hashbrowns and a vanilla cappuccino." Just because she was new to whatever life she was now taking part in, it didn't mean she was new to this diner. She used to come here everyday after the end of the school day when she was in high school.

Jayke had been staring at his plate, deep in his thoughts, ignoring conversations he wasnt interested in. His mind had been on his former sister. Her green eyes burned into his mind forever.

When he had realized that he was no longer alive, his sisters emerald eyes were the last things he saw. There, was the moment Milo stopped existing. Jayke was the new him and he was a Reaper and he was to do a job, reap souls.

He stabbed his eggs with a fork, watching the creamy yolk spread out across the whites of the eggs, he had earlier covered in salt and pepper. He took a bit on his fork and had just finished his bite when the Boss walked in with a young female, seeming anxious.

Milo smiled remembering he had looked that same way when he started, but the manlier less feminine version of scared and anxious and devistated. He picked up a piece of bacon and took a bite, it crunching as he chewed.

Two new reapers now sat at this table.

Licking his lips he perked a brow. "Can I get a refill of coffee please?" He asked the waitress, with a smile before looking at the two new faces. "Welcome, Welcome… you can call me Jayke." He figured he would be nice and at least welcome the poor souls.

XXFranklin should've listened to his friends whenever they told him not to get in the car and drive. He told them that everything was going to be fine but now, there he stood over his own body in the back of an ambulance. It was only seconds later that a man appeared beside him named Austin and gave him certain details about becoming a reaper. Austin told Franklin where to meet them at, a local diner and to not be late.

XXA sigh came over him as he was now at the diner, staring at the unfamiliar faces and extremely lost along with confused about what was happening. A blonde headed walked in with the same expression upon her face and she went over to sit beside Austin, Franklin soon followed behind her and did the same. Just as he was about to order after Austin insisted, the blonde headed female went first.

XX"I'll just have whatever she's having." Franklin said with a wink towards the blonde headed female that sat beside Austin. "I figure us newbies got to be the same and stick together." Just as he muttered those words, a guy welcomed and introduced himself towards the duo.

XX"Uhm, I'm Franklin. You can call me Franklin or Frank but never Frankie." Franklin introduced himself towards anyone that was actually listening to him. Hint that he did not say nice to meet you or anything of the sort because fact of the matter is, was it really nice to meet someone under these circumstances? "What about yourself, pretty lady?" Again, he was speaking to the blonde headed female that was seemingly new to this whole experience alongside him.

After she finished ordering her food, she finally heard a male introducing himself to them just before the other "newbie" began to order for himself. There was no way she was able to shake all of the nervousness and awkwardness she was feeling right now. It was definitely something she was going to have to get used to. Being dead? Reaping souls? Was she really ready for all of this?

"Uhm, I'm Franklin. You can call me Franklin or Frank but never Frankie." Her fellow newbie introduced himself as well before adding, "What about yourself, pretty lady?"

Kaydence just looked between the two males who were speaking to her when the table fell silent. Was he just talking to her? Kaydence just gave a soft smile and decided to ignore the compliment and introduce herself, "Um, I'm Kaydence. Feel free to call me Kay for short if wanted," she stated to Jayke and Franklin.

At least they seemed to be polite. Though the entire time she sat there, there were two others who hadn't spoken a word to her. She began to wonder if they were of the friendly type. Kaydence had a feeling they probably weren't, but she wasn't going to jump to conclusions. Besides, her mother always taught her not to judge someone before you got to know them. Even then it's wrong to judge.

Honestly at that point, the words her mother taught her were no longer beginning to matter. Kaydence was dead now, the girl her mother knew was no longer there. Maybe now was her chance to be someone else.
