My name is Drake Forest. My existance has literally been a shade of the palest and darkest colors of the rainbow. If ever a word to describe my life it would have to be confusion. Why confusion you may ask me, therein lies the true question to my soul. I was born and raised here in Amarillo, Texas. Raised to work on my parents ranch. I suppose I shall start at the beginning. I was a normal child by most standards, making a few mistakes here and there. Nothing major,that is until I hit my teen years. Then everything went bad. It all started right about when I graduated Elementary school and entered Middle. Changes start happening, those that were above the normal. My hearing hightened and sight furthered. School became unbearable, eventually they made me home-school because of the fits I had caused by my senses. After that I tried to learn to control everything that could possibly make me go in the sudden rages that have long been the reasonings of my life. This has been foremost a test of my strength and also my perception. After that I managed to gain some control over my hearing and smell. My vision was the most chatic because after just giving me fits it moved on to migranes which caused my brain to bleed severely on occasion. Many years of pain, practice and also finishing middle school and on to High School I gained control on most of discovered abilities. Then when I least expected anything more to occur my body went through a more physical type of transformation. I remember waking up one morning to find that my muscles in both my right and left arm were extremely sore. Having never felt this type of pain before I ran to the mirror in the bathroom to find that my arms were covered in the darkest black of veins. They had sprouted underneath my skin and pushed their way outward to the surface revealing little streams of black and red blood. More worried now then ever I ran down stairs to find my parents. I blacked out after reaching the fifth step falling down the flight of what seemed to be about twenty steps. I woke about an hour later to realize that not only was I home alone but also that the veins spread down the front of my torso and also up my neck reaching my mouth. Breathing became contricted and tougher every moment that the veins lingered. Then my limbs and fingers started in spasms and I couldn't control anything that my body was doing. Then I died, most people haven't heard this part. They also asked \"How do you know for certain that you died\". I can't really explain how I knew I was dead, but there were no lights or tunnels. The only thing I felt was an extreme rush of adrenaline and also I saw blackness. It felt like I was stuck there for eternity. Then it was as if something inhumane pulled me out and I awoke in the middle of a stream. It took a while to regain my vision and also try to grip my perception of where I was. To be Continued.....
