The Shadow Boy -- Chapter FivePOV Switch:: The Shadow Boy's perspective -- first person
I jumped as soon as I heard her scream. Not many things startle me in this world, but that was definitely going on my blood-curdling list. She asked me who I was. How was I supposed to answer that? Shadows aren't named, well not by other shadows anyway. It's a human trait to name things. Do you hear a dog name it's pup? Of course not. In the beginning, only man named things, and in the end, only man will name things. I replaced the book on the shelf and said to Chassidy,
"I'm an admirer. Don't be alarmed, I'm not here to harm you."
Well, I say that I 'said' that to Chassidy, but it was more of a whisper, really. Shadows don't really have voices. We speak, but not in the traditional sense of vocals reverberating in the throat. Since, afterall we do not have much of a physical form, so we can't really speak.

He was a lot less talkative that day than usual. She was thankful he wasn't distracting her as much as normal, but she did enjoy their unusual conversations and his witty comments. Occasionally he would take his mouse and unplug it from his computer and plug i
The beginning...I wander through the halls. 'This school is so big...or is that just the students?' I chuckle to myself and turn into my next classroom on my schedule. It was fourth hour. I had met the teacher before. Many times before. She had gone to my church many years before. Her and her family. A friend of my sister was once smitten with their son.
I walk in farther, clutching my binders and textbooks with all my might, shaking from being so nervous, and perhaps from missing out on breakfast that morning... I pick a random spot and sit down, waiting for the teacher's instructions.I notice the upperclassmen. So tall. So social. >
The bell rings and the teacher walks in incredibly cheerful. My tension eases up a bit and I relax.
