Chapter 1
Written by Krystal

Crossroads, Oklahoma was so small it was barely on the map, but to Aden Stone it was definitely hell on earth. After going out to explore the town Aden found himself in a graveyard; the one place he didn’t want to be. He’d left the D and M Ranch, a halfway house for wayward teens, with IPod on and now he was in a lot of trouble.

The voices in Aden’s head all began to lecture him about this mistake. Julian’s ability to raise the dead made Aden always aware of the graveyards in any town he lived, but the music had distracted him. The tombstone began to rattle and the corpse rose from the dead in need of flesh. He knew he would since Elijah had already predicted his death on a deserted street with a knife in his heart, but that did not make the battle any easier. The only reason he had moved to the D and M Ranch was because of the visions, the ones where he was laughing and kissing a beautiful dark haired girl, and he wanted to know her…even if it meant his life.

Caleb: Wow. Are you out of practice or what? Caled said.
Julian: Laid low by a toe tag. Julian scoffed. You should be embarrassed.
Elijah: Do you want to be dinner? Elijah added.
Aden: “Guys,” he gritted out, his struggles increasing. He managed to roll to his back. “Please. I’m fighting here.”

Eve: Hey! I take exception to that. (Page 13)

Aden: For the first time in his life, he was truly on his own. If he messed up, he’d have no one but himself to blame. (Page 25)
