There's never been so much sorrow
Between the people and the land
Then in a small little village
Outside the busy town bands
Next to a dark, wooded moor
Tucked away from the public's view
Lies a little picturesque village
Covered in the cold autumn dew
People slumbering in their homes
Silent, cold and afraid
Whilst the night creatures rule below
In the village that they made
The humans are forbidden
To the festivals and dances
Not that they would even go
For the dangers that are prancing
The characters that you will find
Bustling in the streets
Be careful as you pass them
Or you will be black and blue with beats
The weather is very bleak
As the rain and snow spillage
But avoid it if you can
The little town of Aplecragg Village
The whistling wind blew through the bare tree's as the last leaves fell to the cold,
Looking out of her window, Laveda looked down at the dirty, dark street. The sun
setting, hiding behind the tall, leaning buildings. As soon as she saw the last
glimpse of it, the curtain was snatched infront of her view.
"What have I told you about looking out the window!!! You could summon some demon
after us because of your foolishness and curiosity!!!" Her mother hissed at her,
tugging Laveda's arm away from the window.
"Mum! There's no such things as demons, they're just like us!" Laveda squabbled as
her thin, messy mother dragged her to the wooden bench.
"I'll have no such words spoken in this house," And she knelt at the cross on the
wall. "Now sit and pray with me Laveda, sit and pray." And her mother bowed her head
Laveda knelt beside her large, family and bowed her head aswell but did not utter a
word. She did not have faith in such beliefs as her mother or the rest of her
Instead of praying, she thought about the outside world that she was so 'naive' about
and invented a way to sneak out of these traditional sermons and find out for herself
what they were like and if there really were 'demons'.
That night, whilst in bed with her three other sisters, she thought of her day and
found several times that she could escape this prison of a home. She was determined
to go, discover what they were really like. Why her family was cramped into the house
with no freedom and no space.
Tomorrow was the day and she was going...
