Curiosity killed the cat, and nineteen-year-old Adelaide was next. She could barely 

remember the moments during her childhood when she knew magic existed, but 

she never stopped searching for it since. On the flipside, monsters from the magical 

world never stopped searching for her either. 

Their paths finally cross in time for Adelaide to realize she should have stayed on 

the human side of the east coast. Unlike college, she can’t get out of trouble with a 

cute smile and a cuter wardrobe. 

These monsters are out for blood, her blood, but she’s in luck. They will spare her 

life in exchange for one favor, and that favor is named Leon Colton.

Adelaide screamed as she fell. Her hands flailed but she never caught the banister in 

time. She plummeted down the short flight of stairs and nailed the bottom step. Her vision 

flashed black and pain reverberated up her spine. She found her feet after a moment, but by the 

time she looked up, the basement door was shut. A halo of light outlined the doorframe and 

provided the only illumination in the dark basement. 

A cold fear suddenly seized her in the next second. The shade was in here. 

Disorientation from the fall lingered but she still felt its presence. She heard the wheezing breath 

and smelt the bitter smoke that clung to its being. She could only see the hint of its figure in the 

dark, but refused to stay long enough to see more.

“Adelaide,” it cooed. The sound of its catlike voice made her misstep and stumble. She 

winced but forced herself to stay calm and find the stairs. The monstrous shade was tied and 

bound, she told herself. It could not get free. 

Wood creaked. The wheezing grew louder. The smell of smoke thickened in the air.

She carefully hurried to the top of the staircase and reached the door. She raced her 

hand along the wood until she found the knob and twisted, but the lock wouldn’t give. Twisting 

with all of her might, her muscles burned before she let go. The door was still pressurized in its 

exact position and that barred her only escape route. Leon’s aura filled the hall outside and the 

pressure wouldn’t let up until he did.

“Adam! Adam!” she called. Adelaide beat on the door with her fists, ready to splinter the 

wood if necessary. 

“Come down here, Adelaide. I’ve been waiting so long to talk to you,” it hissed.

She stopped her futile assault and her fists hovered in the air. The sound of its voice 

unnerved her and it refused to shut up.

“Why won’t you look at me? What are you afraid of seeing?” it asked.

Adelaide would have scoffed at the question if fear didn’t keep her so quiet. After a 

second of collecting her nerves, she turned to face it. Its figure was barely visible, but she saw it 

tug against its bindings. The wooden chair it was bound to creaked again. 

“I am not afraid of you. You can’t hurt me,” she blurted upon finding her voice.

“That boy is not going to protect you...”

“You don’t know anything. Leave me alone,” she spit. It was just taunting her now, but it 

also affected her more than she’d like to admit. She turned and pressed her ear against the 

door. If Adam was on the other side, he stayed silent. Her skin crawled when she couldn’t hear 

anything at all from the hallway.

“You cannot even protect yourself,” the shade said.

“Then you’ve never met me.”

The door suddenly groaned. It shifted in its frame and she grabbed the knob again. She 

yanked the door open and the sweet fresh air of freedom beckoned her out of the dank 

basement. But then the shade called out to her again and this time it stopped her dead in her 


“Regardless, you will come see me soon if you want to survive,” it said. “Because I know 

your secret. I know what you’re doing here.”

Born and raised in Florida, Constance Sharper juggles 

following her writing passion with completing her
