Chapter 1:

The bright early morning sun shone through the pale, colourless, feeble curtains. The lack of curtain meant the bright light from the sun woke young average boy Jonathan, he rolled over and let a rather pathetic attempt of a groan out of his desert like dry mouth. Then the deafening yell of his mum soon woke him up fully, “Jonathan get out of bed!” she yelled from the bottom of the stairs. He clambered clumsily out of his pit like bed, knocking sheets of scruffy paper off his bedside table to the floor, not a care in the world.

 

Next the daunting task of trying to make it down the stairs before his annoying twin sister opens her immaculately clean white door, and shines a smug smile and questions him on his dress sense and homework. Jonathan dashed across the landing falling over his jeans he’d left on the landing last night, after returning home at 1a.m from a gig. “Good morning Jono, I notice your socks have holes in, and I trust you’ve completed your history assignment for Mrs.Thompson.” said Helena with a smug grin on her face as she walked past. The voice from hell in Jonathan’s mind, he finds it hard to believe his parents produced such a creature. He continued steadily down the hallway, as there was no point rushing now the devil child had spoken to him, but as he reached the top of the stairs he abruptly stopped. There was something there… “Jonathan for god’s sake will you hurry up we’re going to be late if you don’t sort the farm out now.” screamed his mum in anger from the kitchen.

 

Jonathan rubbed his eyes and shoved on his filthy boots and walked out into the morning sun, it shone like a stage light on the grass the dew sparkled in the light, as the sun danced along the barn roof. Dazed by the sunlight Jonathan still continued with his work on the farm, until he was distracted by the strange rumbling noise coming from his dad’s office, he knew automatically his dad wasn’t home because he was away on business.

 

He went to investigate…
