The Shadow Boy -- Chapter sevenPOV:: The Shadow Bo--err...Davyn's perspective -- first person, naturally
A week came and went by so fast. I learned more about Chassidy each day as I stayed by her side always.. Well mostly always. I did respect her privacy. (I only peeped once as she showered.)
She stood in her kitchen with the fridge door open, searching for something, clad in a casual light blue halter style dress and matching light blue flats with a little white bow on the front. She looked gorgeous. And for a moment, I wished I could reach out to her and--
"Say Davyn..how are you able to move things without much of a physical body in this world?"
Her question caught me off guard. Beautiful and smart, Chassidy was definitely my favourite leader yet.
"That's an easy one. I control the particles in the air near the object of my choice to latch on and elevate the object in the air. Thus, creating the illusion that I am actually moving something with my own body. It is much like how spirits move things, really," I exp
Legend of the Snow MaidenA fair-skinned snow maiden strode through the courtyard as little white frozen flakes fell from the sky just to land on the ground immediately beginning to breakdown--disappearing forever. She watched as many couples gracefully skated on the frozen lake in synchronization; so in tune with each other's movements, emotions, and thoughts. Was love what caused them to be synchronized? Or was synchronization what love was all about?
She gathered her lacy-frilled skirt in her dainty, slender hands and carefully took a seat on the snow-covered ground, far away from the lovers now.

They had the same sharp tongue, witty humor, sensitivity and opinions. They were so alike in many way that many would ask if the two were related--second cousins perhaps. They would say in unison that they weren't at the same moment wi
The Shadow Boy -- Chapter SixPOV Switch:: Chassidy's perspective -- first person
I had worked up my courage to ask the other being what he was. He had said 'shadow'. A moment after his response I cleared my throat and said,
"Oh. I see. A shadow...warrior..."
I nodded my head, still staring at the 'shadow'. I felt myself get dizzy. This couldn't really be happening, could it? Shadows couldn't speak, that was unheard of. I sat back down in my chair, due to my lightheadedness.
"Do all shadows speak, like you?"
I swallowed hard, desperately praying that it would not be the answer I had thought it might be. I listened intently for his response.
"Well...no. But all are able to think, reason, and move around, like myself. Mainly lower level and younger shadows are unable to speak."
I took a deep breath in and exhaled slowly, but shakily. I nodded my head again. I tried to keep myself calm.
"Lower level? What level are you......what is your name?"
"My name? Shadows don't have names. But if it pleases you, I sha
