Author's Note:

Hello! If you have somehow arrived at this url, know that you have unearthed my first ever fanfic, which I formulated the plot for at age 13 and wrote at 14. Seven years later, I read this fic and realize that it falls far short of my current writing capabilities; however, between my three jobs and the other fan fic I am currently focused on, I do not have time to go back and edit it. So… until I find time… it stands as a relic of my 14-year-old writing abilities. Anyway, enjoy! Thanks to all who have favorited; this is a… unique story, if nothing else.

Then, before he knew it, a figure was right behind him. He tried to cry out, but was muffled by a white cloth, and before he knew it, he fell into a deep, deep sleep…
