Eleanor awakens in an unfamiliar house with no memories. Outside there is nothing but woods and a heavy mist for as far as the eye can see. It seems she has a protector here, but what lurks in the
woods outside, and how did she come to be here?

Note - this chapter needs a little reworking still (I mean, they all do, frankly).... I wrote it in two separate sessions and I think it got a bit redundant.

If you found this book on quotev and followed the link over here, this is where the new content begins. I ended up combining some shorter chapters when I transfered it over, so the numbering is a
bit different here.

Apparently I initially failed to paste in the last page of this chapter, so it ended kind of abruptly. I've corrected that, as of 9/28/2017

If you read the previous chapter before 9/28/2017, you might want to go read the ending again, as I apparently failed to paste in the last page initially. There aren't any big revelations or
anything -- it just doesn't end quite as awkwardly now.

This one might start to answer some questions.... it might also bring up some new questions...


Apologies for the weird and inconsistent formatting. I'm not sure why it doesn't copy and paste in the same style throughout.

Chapter 12

Submitted: October 12, 2017


A few chapters from now we're going to be getting into some intense plot development, which will likely set the pace for the rest of the book. Until then, I will be considering requests, so if you
like these characters and want to suggest a scenario, I just might write a scene about it, assuming it works with my plans... just let me know!


This is kind of a short chapter, but I didn't want the next one to get too long, especially given how little dialog there is to break up the narration in this chapter.
