Most don't understand the concept of dying. Dying
isn't something to be taken lightly. Once you're dead, BAM!
You're gone forever. Even in today's society, even in the
I am Juliet, with the blonde hair and
blue eyes and I had more to offer than a seventeen year old would
offer. I had special abilities and could kill someone, well; I
have killed maybe a few people… But that is beside the
point, so don't go telling people I am just a crazy wacko who
likes to say she killed someone when I actually did and I
am not proud of what I did. It was seven years ago when I
discovered what I could do.
I never had been seen, but that day
something occurred that even I couldn't turn around. That
My abilities: I could make a person go blind and
deaf, ultimately killing them with a blink of an eye if I choose
to. A Witch cursed me when I was a baby. Unless someone loved me
by the time I hit eighteen. But if not, I don't know what'd
happen. If I did find someone, I would be released of the
Which makes me go back to another
problem, me killing people. I'd never think or imagine killing
someone; I didn't think I'd have the strength to, until this girl
in my elementary school was rude and mean to me. I was angry and
wasn't thinking when I brought her to the farthest part of the
playground, she was mad at me for stealing her from her friends.
I starred at her straight in the eyes and she fell down to the
ground crying and died on me. That was when I found out I could
do special things, evil things.
"Juliet! Mom wants you and its time
for school." Jason yelled to me, he's my four-year-old
"Alrightttyyy, I'm coming." I sang
back to him. He doesn't know I have powers and will never
I walked down the stairs of our
beautiful home and walked into the kitchen.
"Juliet, why did you kill a man this
time?" My mother asked all suspiciously.
"I. Well. I did. But when I went to a
store he started following me and once I reached our street, he
was driving and speeded up and then I. Well. You know the rest."
"Now we have police asking us if we
saw anything unusual. You need to stop." My mother nags me all
the time about this always.
"Okay, I will try better." And I
headed out the door towards my school, Johnson Senior High
School. It has a population of 3,000 people, but I have two best
friends and both of them have boyfriends, and all the guys stay
away from me. Like I am a disease-covered person.
I walked into the front doors with my
purse and messenger bag with a laptop in it. Everyone just looked
at me and started talking again. A typical school day.
"Juliet!" I heard a yell come from one
of my friends, Emmy, and she was running down the hall with
another one of my friends, Victoria (not Vicky, only
"Hey guys." I said.
"Hey! So have you heard, Juliet?" Emmy
"I am having a party on Saturday!
Around sixty people from our school will be there." Victoria
"Okay. I am so there!"
RING! The school bell rang for the
"Okay, I have to get to class. See
ya!" I said and started for Chemistry. I was about to be at the
door and when I slammed into a tall guy. We both dropped our
things and we dropped to the floor.
"Oh, so sorry. I didn't see you
there." He spoke with a caring tone. I looked to find a guy with
sandy hair and green eyes with glasses. "Oh… Here are your
things." He said handing my books and journal to me.
I looked at him and wait, "Haven't
I've seen you before?" I said accusingly.
"No, just moved here. I was actually
going to Chemistry." He said.
"After you." He moved his hand vowing
for me to go in first.
"Thanks. That's kind of nice." I
walked over to my seat and he looked like a lost puppy trying to
find a seat. I waved to him and said "Come over. You can sit by
He walked over to the table I was at
and sat down with his things. "So what's you're name?" He
"Juliet. And yours?"
"Kenny." The day droned on, until I
headed home and noticed van coming behind me driving very slowly.
I started to run and it speeded up with me until I ran into the
forest that broke away from a home. The woods were very eerie and
dark with rain starting to come through. Then I heard the van
Trying to concentrate, I ran further and further
into the forest until I reached a stopping place. I kept hearing
the men yelling after me. I was breathing harder and harder
trying to get enough air that would never come. I ran to the side
of the forest and finally found a tree that had branches low
enough for me to grasp on and climb up.
I reached the middle of the tree, when the men had
caught sight of me. One of the men was muscular and had a gun
with him. He spoke "There she is!" He pulled his gun on me and
had pulled the trigger. I saw only in slow motion, like if you
were in a car wreck (it happens in slow motion), my life was
flashing before my eyes and I felt the reality. This is what it
felt like to be a victim of my own.
My shoulder hurt and I started feeling light
headed. 'Don't you pass out Juliet. You're stronger than you
think. You have the ability to with hold this injury.' My mind
said to itself. And I heard Kenny yell from a distance "JULIET!"
It was a hallucination. He wasn't there. I was too late. I kept
hearing the birds chirp and smelt the winter air; strange I lived
in Australia and it was never cold.
I fell down from the tree and I felt the arms of
someone that had caught me from falling to the forest
I was floating in the air and the fell down a dark
hole with no sides to grasp onto. My hands kept trying to find
something, just something to catch onto. I eventually felt the
light come towards me, the warmth of the light, but my wish
wasn't granted. I was freezing cold and I hit the bottom hard on
my butt . . .
I had awakened with my head spinning and my vision
all too blurry. I could see clearly a few minutes later. I was
chained to a hospital bed with some gauze around my shoulder with
an IV in my arm. There were men guarding the doors and barred
"Where am I?!" I screamed.
"You are in confinement, we figured out what you
are and what you have done. Your parents know where you are and
your school does as well. We have your boyfriend in another
room." A man spoke.
"Wait. It was real? He was there?"
"Yes all of that was real. But more importantly,
you have killed over ten people since you were ten years old. You
have abilities that we have hindered. But most of all your being
sentence to death by the Australian government. They are still
deciding on what your sentence will be"
I started feeling light headed again
and passed out again. I had awoken with Kenny beside me. "Kenny?
Is that you?"
"Hey Juliet, I know you're wondering
why I followed you, but I know everything. I know what you are. I
am not scared of you." He stopped for a moment and then spoke
again "I love you, Juliet, I have know you in past lives, and it
may seem strange. But I am experienced in your area of
abilities." And he hugged me and I hugged him back for a long
I felt a feeling of relief rush over me and I saw
a face in the back of my mind. It was the Witch who had cursed me
and she spoke with a tiny voice, "You are finally released, the
deaths are no longer on your soul. You are a different person."
My mind came back to reality.
"I will be with you no matter what. I
would die for you."
"Same here." I heard the man come back
in and KABOOM! I heard a rocking noise and the building exploded
where I was detained.
"Come with me, Juliet." Kenny
"What? Your special too?"
"I have friends." He said with a hint
of devious in his voice. We escaped out, and we were running and
then shock had controlled all of my senses. I felt a bullet in my
chest. I had fallen and landed on my back, I was having spasms
and started spitting out blood. I had stood up for the first time
and Kenny was about to say something, but he fell down, clutching
"Kenny? Kenny!" I screamed, and my
chest hurt. I saw the bullet had gone deep into my body. I was
dragging him while I kept bleeding, the smell of metal and silver
had covered my nose. I reached the gate with Kenny and saw that
man that was in my room.
"You cannot escape. This will be your
sentence. Goodbye Juliet Kingston." The man pulled a riffle out
and pulled the trigger. My breath was taken out of me and I fell
to the ground.
Kenny had crawled up to me and
whispered, "I love you, Juliet. We'll be together again. In
Heaven or in some other life, nothing will hold us apart." And
that moment we had kissed for the first and last time on Earth.
He had fallen back down and his eyes were closed, the breath gone
from his life. I held his hand and I had crawled over to him put
my head on his chest. I kissed his cheek and felt another bullet
go through some part of my body. I had tried to with stand the
pain, but I couldn't and gave into the pain.
I blacked out and started feeling like 100 needles
were pricking me all at once and then, falling down the hole, the
light coming towards me. I was headed towards Heaven; God had
forgiven me of what I've done.
